Old Mill Hotel

Reviewed 21 September 2012

Nice hotel, nice views of the river and the bridge. Quiet location although near to toll bridge which traffic gets heavy at times although very quiet at night. Car park is tiny not much room to park or move.
The bedroom was average, stains on carpet, bed was of two different beds put together. Shower room door did not close, shower was cold and no heated towel rail so towel remained wet. Restaurant, average breakfast, dirty worn out table mats, stained floor and dirty windows all round. WIFI had to pay for, not worth £115 a night!

Room Tip: Next time I would travel further into Bath which is not far and get better hotel for same price.

Good point
the hotel is located in quiet and beautiful area.
view from restaurant is terrific.

The rest
you can reach Bath only by car/taxi/bus - or else it's 40 min walk.
the rooms are SMALL indeed - and the effort was made to put everything you need in - but the way sockets and things are arranged is absolutely inconvenient for users.
breakfast is ok - nothing great.

Room Tip: no car - no go. you cant reach Bath on foot - unless you are big fan of walking ( appr. 40-50 min)

Wish I read this before we booked! As regular visitors to Bath we've stayed in several hotels and b&bs. Although the hotel looks nice & is in a picturesque location, it leaves a lot on be desired. We were in a lodge room. The one on the end by the metal stairs. Yep, we had people clonking up and down stairs all night. Secondly the loo seat was literally hanging off. Why on earth had it not been reported and fixed? The reason it was hanging off is because of poor planning. It wasn't actually possible to sit on the loo straight because of the great big wash basin, so you end up hanging off one side! The minibar is nothing but a trip hazard, plonked right in front of the bathroom door. The bed is probably the worst I've ever slept on. I've never slept on a mattress that didn't actually touch any part of my body other than my head and feet (that's how badly it sagged). The housekeeper also needs lessons on how to make a bed, a flat sheet is supposed to be flat to the mattress not wrapped round it and screwed up underneath it to keep it in place.... Now the breakfast.... It was ok. The smoked salmon and scrambled egg was nice, the toast was appalling, literally warm bread. It just felt like the hotel was badly lacking in tlc......

Stayed one night and would not return. Shoddy hotel and staff that could not 'care less'. Hotel felt uncared for and dirty. Stained carpet in bedroom, cheap furniture. Torn seats in restaurant. Waitress looked as though she had just been pulled out of bed. When waitress laid up a table at breakfast she placed clean cutlery on a chair seat and then put on table. Breakfast food was cold. Gardener strimming lawn at 8. 15 a.m. No relaxed wake up then! The male receptionist was, as previous reviewer stated, absolutely clueless. The hotel was poor. Guests were smoking in the next bedroom to ours and the front door of the hotel was littered with cigarette butts. Think again before visiting this shoddy, dirty, hotel with staff who really we're not up to the job of working in a job that requires some customer care or service.

Spent one night here in the Lodge annexe. Bit worried after reading reviews but was pleasantly surprised with the room. There is a lack of attention to detail which spoils the overall effect. Lovely modern bathroom but the shower was difficult to operate. Bed comfy, but bedside lamps old. Tea and coffee tray but very small cups. Fridge in room with glasses and wine list(crumpled) slept very well but woken at 7am by staff in car park. The hotel is located by the river and has lovely views over the fields. The biggest problem for me was the breakfast. It was busy but again furniture threadbare and tired. The food was cheap and of poor quality served with no enthusiasm. Cold white toast, coffee pot dirty and tatty. Left most of the food and walked out. Ashamed for the poor impression this hotel gives to tourists. Sorry but not good enough.
