Located near the river this hotel is beautifully furnished with plenty of space even in the small double rooms. I was pleased to find a walk in wardrobe so my suitcase wasn't right next to my bed. The room was very clean and nicely presented. The staff are very helpful and friendly, going out of their way to make sure...

We had booked an afternoon tea for our 5th wedding anniversary. We arrived early and had drinks on the terrace area outside. The waitress who served us outside was very attentive and helpful. On being shown to our seats inside the first thing we noticed were the flies. Lots of small flies everywhere and it was rather off putting. The...

Nice hotel and staff although I'm not sure it is worth the money. Bathroom and furniture very out dated in room. I have stayed in many 4 star hotels and would not say this is purely because of the facilities. The magazines and iPad in the room add a nice touch.

What a wonderful hotel. Right in the city and what a quirky place. Fabulous staff. I didn't like the first room we were allocated and the staff swiftly gave us another. The tea room us fabulous as is the dining room. We had dinner there and it was really super.

You won me over with all your fine artwoork! Our room was really on the small side, but everything else was fine. The bathrom was fresh and new. On the downside; the wine in the bar was a bit expensive, and the breakfast too. But not to worry, it is easy to find your breakfast right across the street from...

Nice contemporary hotel with great rooms and a beautiful bar along with an outdoor seating area in the square in front of the hotel. Parking not an issue - just needs a little pre thought! Good breakfast. Check-in and check-out overrun and rooms not ready in time spoiled an otherwise excellent trip.

As a fan of boutique hotels this one hits the mark. Our small room is well designed and functional. Good size bed and very comfortable. Generous bathroom. Top location. Lots of character. Plenty of nearby cafes and close to the roman baths and thermae spa.

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
