      Historical Traveler Reviews Parade Park Town House Bed & Breakfast Bath

      Budget rooms and great location

      from

      A good budget hotel right in the city centre - excellent location. We got a small double room for 65. It really was small but to be fair that was how it was described when we booked. We stayed two nights - the first very noisy until the early hours, a group of young men were staying having watched a local evening rugby match and were rowdy. next night no complaints at all. Good breakfast, friendly staff. Overall above average and would recommend on price and location.

      Restaurant next door

      from

      This is a fab location, in the centre of Bath but it can be very noisy at night as the hotel has a nightclub beside it. The hotel was very clean but so so shabby, our carpet did'nt fit (showing bare floorboards with paint drips - classy), the breakfast was lovely and the people very kind but the best bit was the wonderful fish restaurant next door, called OneFishTwoFish, not to be missed, the food was beautiful and they cant do enough for you.

      Great location, not much else to offer.

      from

      The Parade Park is very close to the major tourist attractions and to the rail and bus stations. The individual rooms are nonsmoking, although there is a somewhat smoky bar on the ground floor so it smells smoky when you come in to reception. There are no lifts, so you may have to drag your bags up four or five flights of stairs.

      One major problem: the bed! This was one of the worst beds I have ever slept in. It reminded me of the bed in my grandparents' spare room that they bought second-hand when a boys' school auctioned off all their dormitory furnishings! You could feel all the springs in the mattress. I slept fine on it, but someone larger than me or someone who has a bad back would have been miserable.

      Also, there was some gunge on the heating element in the electric kettle. I'm guessing it was just mineral deposits, and none of it seemed to come off into my tea, but it looked gross.

      Breakfast was good, except for the sausages.

      I could conceivably stay here again (especially if they got some new mattresses) but I suspect there are better places to stay or better deals to be had elsewhere in Bath.

      Good Value

      from

      We really enjoyed our stay here. Originally had booked Best Western Bath Abbey but were very dissappointed there when we checked in. Walked down the street and found this gem of a place. Secured a Four poster room with bath en suite for less than the basic rate at Best Western. Room was clean and well appointed, very comfortable and gorgeous views. Hotel staff were very helpful. Only drawback is no elevators, if you're carting a bit of luggage. Would definitely stay here again.

      Very good value

      from

      We have just returned from a week staying in Cormwall and stopped in Bath to break the journey. I booked one nights accommodation at the Parade Park Hotel, Bath for the 19th Ausust 2005 ( it is hard to get any hotel to give you just on nights accommodation at the weekend). We were very impressed with the friendly service and the cleanliness of this hotel. The location of the hotel could not be better. After reading other reviews about there being no lift we only took a hold all with our belongings which was just enough for one nights stay and left our main luggage in the car. We booked a quad room and were very pleased to receive a suite with two bedrooms and a bath room, which although a bit dated, fitted well with the age of the building. Bath itself is a lovely place. We hopped straight onto an open topped bus tour which is a great way to see the place. However bath is not very child friendly. We had two children aged 13 and 15 and found it hard to find places to eat that would let children in. In all we really enjoyed our stay in bath and we would highly reccommend this hotel.

      OK

      from

      A bit shabby, but ok. Hotel is very clean and has all the ammenities one would want -- nice bath rooms, heated towel rack, hair dryer & coffee/tea in room. Breakfast is simple but good. Location is excellent. It's certainly not posh or lavish, but it is clean, has what one needs, and is well located for a fair price.

      Great central location

      from

      This is a traditional hotel in the heart of Bath. Some updating is required, especially to the bedrooms. However, everything and everywhere is very clean and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Only problem was no lift - going up 6 flights of stairs is not practible with a small child!! Wonderful breakfast and great views across the park and river. The Christmas market is a must for all, very traditional and festive.

      Charming B&B in a charming town

      from

      My husband and I took a 2-day sidetrip to Bath while we were in London. It was well worth the detour. We stayed at the Parade Park one night and really enjoyed it.The building matches the rest of the town: early 19th century Georgian architecture. It has been well maintained. The rooms are small, but they are air conditioned and we found them clean and nicely decorated. We were on the top floor (I don't think there's an elevator) and had 1 dormer window that overlooked the town and Avon river. It wasn't fancy, but it wasn't dingy either.Breakfast was lovely (and included), and the location couldn't have been better -- no more than 2 blocks from Milsom Street and the Roman baths. I'd highly recommend staying there -- especially since it was only 60 pounds.

      Very adequate

      from

      I stayed at the Parade Park for 3 nights in July. It has a great location, the price was reasonable, the single room was a nice size for one, the double room was very crowded for one. There was a shower, no tub. The breakfast was included in the price and had a nice assortment, but not a full menu. No elevator and your room could be 3 flights up.

      Three blocks from the train and bus station so no need for a taxi. I would definitely stay here again.

      You can do better

      from

      You should consider another Hotel when staying in Bath. The Parade Park does have an outstanding location, but is very smoky with a bar on the main floor. The rooms are below average. The linens are dated, the TV's tiny. I certainly would not stay there again. If I went off-season to Bath again, my strategy would be to not have reservations anyplace and to look for great same day specials at a nicer Hotel than the Parade Park.

We deliberately did not watched the TV screen as it was playing the most recent Christmas Special they we hadn't seen (we were in Paris at Christmas climbing the Eiffel Tower).

      Today we headed to Wiltshire to visit the famous Stonehenge. Neolithic monument built anywhere from 3000 BC to 2000 BC. Constructed most likely (in my mind anyway) to help track the time of the year. Its amazing to see what some simple hunter gathers can achieve if they have the desire.

      Next we made our way to the golden city of Bath, aptly named because it is made out of a golden stone. As you approach you will be greeted with a spectacular view down the valley. ...
