Excellent facilities, poor services

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Martha V 15/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

It is a marvellous hotel with beautiful rooms and public areas but very poor housekeeping services, to the extent that I felt it was not value for money. In 6 days towels and bed linen were only changed once -after I asked- and room cleaning was kept to a bare minimum. It is a pity for such a hotel in such price range.

Disappointing stay

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Gillian F. Friends - 11/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Stayed for 3 nights earlier this week . Given a superior room where disappointingly the AC was ineffective, the windows wouldn’t open , a lamp was faulty , there were no instructions to operate the shower (in the superior room pics there’s a bath - but not for us) and the kettle would not fit to fill in under the tap . We were promised refills of tea, coffee, water and toiletries etc , but had to ask every time we wanted anything . The adjoining restaurant was also very disappointing serving cabbage as spring greens and hard potatoes (and two of the three nights very slow service) . The bar had limited drinks and no cocktails . The rooms didn’t reflect our initial impression on entering the hotel which was a shame . We complained about all these things but weren’t even offered a complimentary drink!

Lovely hotel

It was lovely. We were given a lovely room at the back of the hotel so it was a quiet night and we all had a good night sleep

When asked for room to be cleaned, bathroom was not cleaned well & carpet not hoovered. I stayed there for 6 nights, coming from Sofitel I found a big difference in cleanliness. The staff were friendly

Dear Guest Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased that the team resolved your issues during your stay when you fed back to us. Kind regards Team Francis

Jeremy Couples - 08/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I felt we were overcharged for a fairly basic room. What made it worse was not being able to book breakfast at a reasonable time. Only options were 7:30 of 10:30 on a Sunday. We were not even told we had to book on checking in.

excellent well located , brilliant stay

Adekunle Couples - 06/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Experience was not satisfactory. Wash hand sink was not flowing water and could not be repaired for the three nights I stayed. Room was not clean very well and I had to complain to the reception before it was cleaned well. Reception have the habit of not picking phone calls from the room in the night and I had to walk downstairs to complain twice.

Enjoyable stay

It was a special birthday for my wife and the hotel staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The hotel is well located in the middle of Bath and that worked well for us.

Patrick O. Couples - 05/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very good overall. Had a light issue. ie. To much coming in from floodlights at front of building on all night till dawn. Curtains don't touch walls 8"gap. Wooden key cards are very ecological but using electricity all night (irony).is a waste. The manager was very good at getting another room next morning for us and said would talk with maintenance about altering timings Would stay her again Patrick in room 124and 129.Good telephone manner Paige. And yes you met expectations `

I wanted a hotel that was a little more than usual And this didn’t disappoint, everyone friendly and helpful. Room was lovely, overlooking the front of the building. and the hotel itself was central enough without but within its own peaceful space, would definitely stay again
