Historical Traveler Reviews Harington's Hotel Bath
Very nice stay - Peter and Mellissa are Fab....!
My partner and I chose this hotel for a weekend break in February 2005 and found it most pleasant, Peter and Mellissa are the most delightful host we have ever met, nothing was to much trouble for them. Before we arrived I e-mailed the hotel for suggestions of where we could dine as it was a Saturday night and I wanted to book before we arrived, Mellissa was straight back to me with loads of suggestions of varying prices and locations, with web sites and telephone numbers to boot. Our room was very quaint and over looked the cobbled street in which the Hotel was located. The only thing I would say is this would not be a good place to stay if you had trouble with stairs as I believe all the rooms are not on the ground level and there are no lifts. Breakfast was a real treat, cooked and served in the most delightful way.
The best place to start the New Year
My partner and I stayed at Haringtons from the 30th December to 2nd January. The standard and cleanliness of the room was excellent and the ensuite facilities and toiletries were of the standard expected in a far more expensive hotel. The breakfast was gorgeous, and New Years morning breakfasts were served until 11am, so we didn't have to miss out after a late night!! All of the staff were friendly and welcoming, there was no problem gaining access to the hotel after the bar closed at midnight. The location couldn't have been better, a lovely & friendly local pub directly across the road, an excellent Indian restaurant 30 seconds around the corner. And many other restaurants, bars and shops all within a very short walking distance.
All in all an excellent hotel in a LOVELY & SAFE area of Bath, I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Bath.
Fantastic hotel exceeded expectations
My husband and I stayed at Harringtons from 15th to 20th November, 2004. We wanted to go somewhere that was close enough to London but where we could feel like we were a million miles away. We arrived to a fabulous Irish welcome from the proprietor Peter O'Sullivan and his partner Melissa. My parents were Irish so that was a good start. We have stayed at alot of hotels from cosy B & B's to 5 star hotels and had various welcomes from a grunt to a bark. It was so cold when we arrived the owner Peter made us two of the nicest Irish coffees we have ever tasted. This was a good start.
Breakfast was fabulous. Lots of variety and plenty of healthy stuff too, which I was fond of.
You have to ask for the Carrot cake at afternoon tea which is made by Melissa's mother which is only mouth watering....I was lucky enough to get the recipe.
The hotel is only a minutes stroll from the main shopping street, so we were able to pop back with our bags every few hours. It is in a very quaint and safe part of town so I don't know what the previous review was referring to about it being unsafe....
We came back a few nights after 12 o'clock and there was always some one on duty.
The car park is right next to the hotel also.
Our room was always clean with fresh towels. I could not find fault if I tried.
The price was great value as we had a ball and will defintly go back to Harrington's in Bath .....probably for the sales in January.
If you do visit this little treasure trove tell Peter and Melissa that Patricia and Alan from Chiswick in London will be back....
Ignore the good reviews..they must have stayed somewhere else
We booked into this 'hotel' based on the good reviews but realised our mistake straight away.
The room (£118/night) had a stained carpet,peeling paint,dirty bathroom,old
curtains and was generally small and not .worth £18/night let alone the £118 they
were asking.My wife said she felt like crying at the thought of spending two nights
there and I had to agree..so we didn't.
Other bad points include the car park being a 5 minute walk from the hotel and the hotel closing at 2300 with no night porter.
The hotel is central but this is in the not so nice part of town and feels very claustrophobic.
Overall very unimpressed.
Their are a number of issues I feel I must raise in response to the review. The first and most important is no one made a complaint to the hotel about the room being unsuitable or the bathroom being untidy or any other issue that the reviewer raises. If this person was so disappointed with the hotel, surely they would have raised the matter with the management. I know I would certainly let the management of a hotel know if I was unhappy with the product or service I was paying for.
Firstly regarding the matter of the bedroom. All of our rooms have been newly redecorated within the last three years. I can honestly say hand on heart all our rooms are in good decorative order. Weather the bathroom was untidy or not I cannot say as it was not brought to our attention. What I can say is that cleanliness is our number one priority. It is something that we have consistently scored very highly on over the years under the AA hotel reviews.
A point I feel I don't need to answer regards our location. All I'll say is have a look at a map of Bath and you will see we are located between queen square and Milsom street. Queen square houses most of Bath's professionals and Milsom Street has the best shops in the city. Add to this the fact we are on the last cobbled street in the city with no through road and I feel our situation could not be much better. But don't believe me look for yourselves. Other reviewers have constantly mention our great location. Someone must be getting it wrong?
Regarding car parking I must agree with the reviewer our reserved car parking is all of a 4-5 minute walk away. Finally regarding the hotel closing at 11 pm, well lets just say I think the writer must have us confused with another hotel he/she stayed at. The hotel bar stays open until 12 midnight every night of the week. During weekends if it is busy we will stay open till 1am. There is also a member of staff on duty 24hrs a day.
I understand that some people will take my comments with a pinch of salt and that is understandable. I believe in the product and service we provide our customers with is of a very high standard. Which I believe is reflected in the amout of repeat business we generate.
I hope you decide to take my word and those of the other 5 reviewers, or better still decide for yourself. We look forward to welcoming you to Harington's Hotel and making your visit to Bath a special one.
Thanks for Listening, and I hope I did not go on for too long.

This hotel was a very pleasant surprise. The room was confortable and the hotel itself is spotless, in a fabulous location with a great staff.
Harington's Hotel was the perfect place to be whisked away for a birthday treat.
Situated down a quiet cobbled street it is literally 100yrds from the main shopping areas and restaurants. The staff were friendly and the breakfasts fresh and cooked to order.
The rooms are bright and well furnished. I would definately rstay again.
Charming and convenient
Attentive and friendly staff. They were kind enough to fix up a room for me a few hours before check-in so I could sleep off my jet lag.
Small, cozy hotel located on a very quiet cobblestone street. Excellent food and service. Convenient to everything in Bath. Health & beauty spa right next door. Counting the days till I return!
Very Nice for the Price
Very friendly place with good rooms and a great location. Good value.
Great fry breakfast of a morning. You'll have to climb stairs here to get to your room. If I go back to Bath, I'll stay here again, no question.
We loved our short 3 night stay at Harington's Hotel. The rooms were nicely decorated and the front desk staff was very helpful. It's within walking distance to everything and the rooms are a good price. Just make sure you plan your time so you don't miss their English breakfast (included in your rate), we only made it to one. It's definitely a place I'd recommend and I can't wait to visit Bath again.

... first and looked at the famous Arlington Row which comprises a row of 14th century cottages, possibly one of the most photographed spots in the area. These cottages were built for the woollen trade workers and the wool was dried on a rack on the land adjacent. We walked along the river which had a few little bridges over and made our way to the trout Farm. Here we had a delicious lunch of smoked trout sandwiches, it was a ...
Today we went into Bath and although we had been here several times before it was still a pleasure to look around. We drove to the park and ride as usual which is very handy and then walked down to the shopping centre. Didn't buy much but had a nice lunch. There were several buskers and this statue figure had us baffled for a while. It was very cold today compared to our time ...
... up the career ladder, met Jon, moved in with Jon, bought our first property together and we are now getting married. The mind boggles at how much has happened, how much difference there is between 18 and 26. I was so so young back then, and I'm sure I'll say the same thing about the me now in 10 years time, but equally I do believe that those formative early 20s years are a big jump for most people.

... date back to the year 785AD with the current cathedral being restored in the 1600s after it laid in ruins for over 70 years after being damaged during the dissolution of monasteries which was ordered by King Henry VIII. There are areas where you can actually see pillars from the Norman era church under the floor. Another interesting fact we learnt was that in 973AD the first King of all of England, King Edgar, was crowned at this site and ...
What can I say about Bath - I think I've found my spiritual home :) so many layers of history from pre roman Celtic times, to the amazing Roman baths and the wonderful Georgian architecture of Jane Austen's time. We wandered around the Royal Crescent and then headed to the fashion museum, No. 1 Royal Crescent, the Jane Austen Centre, the Roman baths and the Christmas Markets. While I ...
