I started off looking forward to my visit to the Royal Bath Hotel. My first impression as I walked up was good until I was met in the door way by an arrogant and mistrusting doorman. The hallways were extremely warm and stuffy. The food was good and presentation excellent although the portions were a little lacking. After being charged £13 for a bottle of beer and a glass of wine I beginning to get frustrated with the service and felt the hotel was trying to hard to live up to yester years. Back in the bedroom I barely managed to sleep due to the incompetent positioning of my room directly behind the function hall where I was kept awake until 3am by loud music and kitchen staff chatting outside when putting bins out. The floor boards in the hotel badly need replacing and creaked worse then a tall ship. I was woken up on plenty of occasions by the room above as early as 7am! Constant floor creaking prompted me to get out ASAP and vacate without breakfast back to my car which I have to add I had to park in a pay and display public car park due to the hotels lack of parking for customers. I would not recommend the Royal Bath Hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing, worthwhile weekend away. Don’t be fooled by the name or past reputation. Stay well clear.
