This is a really tremendous hotel. All of the basics are right - it's attractive and comfortable, the staff are friendly and helpful, the location is as central as you get, and the restaurant is blow-your-socks-off good. But the USP is the art on the walls, which is tremendous - contemporary and really engaging. We loved it. And the cocktail...

Stayed for just one night for the hen night of my soon to be daughter in law. Beautiful hotel, great location, helpful staff, fabulous decor, good breakfast and coffee, BUT although we had a very comfortable bed, in what was a very small room we hardly slept due to the temperature of the room. The radiator was off and we...

Great location, lovely interior, fantastic breakfasts and cocktails in the bar in the evenings. The staff was hospitable, friendly and warm. We brought our golden retriever dog and she was allowed everywhere except the breakfast room (they served us breakfast with her in the bar). I would come again.

Had an amazing stay late weekend. The staff on the front desk were very helpful and polite. As we were early for check-in, they held onto our bags so that we could go and explore for a couple of hours...making the most of our stay in Bath. We had afternoon tea and had a chance to look at the decor...

We stayed for 1 night in room 107. The hotel is lovely, clean and the staff were all really friendly. We'd booked through Secret Escapes, which included a glass of fizz for each person on arrival - it's very nice fizz and the bar has a chilled atmosphere. The bed was really comfy, the room was clean and the toiletries...

Visited with my elderly Mother for both of our first visit to Bath purely to see the Roman Spa, Abbey and historical centre - chose this hotel due to location and we were not disappointed could actually see the Abbey from the bedroom window! (Plus 5 min walks from train station). We arrived 2 hrs before check in expecting to...

My wife booked us in to this hotel as a midweek break for my Birthday. On arrival the room wasn't ready but we were 20 mins early for check in, and maintenance had been in the room. Reception offered us the option of leaving our bags and having a drink while the room was finished, or an alternative room of...

We were on a one night break and so decided to book a small double. These rooms are not big enough for two people!! Thumbalina and her partner would be squashed in this room!! The double is pushed against the wall and there is no ceiling light. The Lino is peeling away from the bathroom floor, there's a crappy bit...

The location is great. It's very close to the Abbey and with it's gorgeous frontage the hotel actually feels like part of Bath, a tourist attraction in itself, rather than simply a base from which to tour. There was a wedding on when I arrived and another the next day which I liked - the hotel staff where obviously geared...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Abbey Hotel is a privately-owned hotel in one of the best locations in Bath. Situated in North Parade, close to Bath Abbey, Pulteney Bridge, The Pump Rooms and the main shopping centre, it's the perfect base for exploring this glorious city, recognised as a World Heritage Site. The Abbey Hotel is also the ideal place to stay for rugby at Bath, and we are only minutes away from Bath Cricket Club and the Thermae Spa. Guided tour buses exploring the rest of Bath, including the Royal Crescent, Circus and Assembly Rooms, leave from outside the Hotel every 10 minutes. With 60 comfortable rooms, a lounge where you can enjoy coffee and drinks, and The Allium Brasserie selling drinks and meals throughout the day, the Hotel is a great place to unwind, whether you're here for business or pleasure. Watch the world go by from our pavement terrace over a cappuccino, light lunch or an early evening drink.Just opened: our brand new restaurant, The Allium Brasserie, created by our new former Michelin-starred Executive Head Chef, Chris Staines. It's set to become the most popular place to eat in the city. ... more   less
