      Historical Traveler Reviews The Bath Priory Hotel

      Stunning!

      from

      We stayed for a two night break in April. The hotel was not busy, and we were given a room upgrade, which had lovely views over the garden.

      Food was fantastic, and they thoroughly deserve their michelin star.

      The staff were helpful, unobtrusive and really made us welcome.

      I'd definately recommend staying here to anyone who'll listen. Not cheap (500 B&B), but worth every penny.

      Perfect birthday treat

      from

      I took my partner to the Bath Priory on a Saturday night for a surprise birthday treat. I was delighted with my choice. The staff were very friendly, low key and attentive. They were ready with a map of Bath on our arrival and bottled water on our departure. I booked the cheapest double room they had over the internet and found it comfortable and homely. They had a decent brand of toiletries, fluffy dressing gowns and towels, fresh ice in the bucket, a couch and sofa and TV. We also had dinner there and the food was pretty special and reasonably priced for a Michelin-starred restaurant. Though it was a formal affair,it wasn't over-bearing. The spa was on the smallish side but tranquil and well maintained. When we left we were given a 50 voucher to redeem against our next visit.

      A tip-if you ring up to book for just one night over the weekend, you might get told they only take 2 night bookings. That's what I was told but I checked out last minute and expedia (after reading a review on this site) and found that I could book for just one night through them. You might get a discount as well!

      What a lovely place

      from

      Stumbled across this wonderful hotel whilst looking for a romantic one night break in Bath. The AA Hotel guide (which I read whilst browsing in Waterstones!) described it as a "Top Hotel" ... I'd have to agree.

      The price quoted on their web site thebathpriory is rather expensive, 245 per night for a standard room and 300 for a deluxe room for one night, including breakfast. I booked via another well known web site, paid 180 and also got an upgrade to a wonderful deluxe room. The room was very well appointed, and well worth the money that I paid, and although its a 15-20 minute trek into the centre of Bath the location, not far from The Crescent, is not a problem.

      We will DEFINITELY return and if the AA's taste is this good then I might even purchase the book!!

      Brilliant stay

      from

      Having recently stayed at the Bath Priory, I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing break in Bath. We were treated with the greatest care and attention throughout and all of my requests were carried out quickly and efficiently, even during the night!

      Dinner was particularly excellent, try the vanilla pannacotta - yum!

      Overall, definitely a 10 out of 10!

      Pretty Perfect Priory

      from

      The service was first class and discreet, personal but not overly friendly. Amazingly helpful staff especially the event cordinator!!!

      What else can I say - rooms were great, food was excellent. Can't wait to go again.

      First Class

      from

      Just returned from the Bath Priory and can't speak highly enough of it. From the moment we entered the quality was evident. From the receptionist who remembers your name to the luxury of the rooms,this is a very good experience for Bath.The hotel is situated in a beautiful gardens and the food in the restaurant just excellent! Without doubt,one of the best hotels in Bath and is worth the expense.Highly recommended!When we are next in Bath this is there we will be heading.

      Great food; disappointing accommodation

      from

      We had high hopes for this hotel, but the experience overall was disappointing. Firstly, the hotel is much smaller than the photographs suggest and the indoor pool is small. The gardens are pleasant enough but not outstanding. The food was first class, albeit served in a somewhat characterless, low ceilinged and claustraphobic dining room. But the accommodation was just not up to the standard one expects for the price charged: the room was relatively small and bland, anonymously furnished and with cheap bathroom fittings. We were left feeling that The Priory is just not in the same league as The Royal Crescent, Chewton Glen, or Tresanton, still less Cliveden, except in terms of price.

      Amazing gem of a hotel

      from

      From the time we checked in until we left, every moment at this hotel was special. We were greeted with a lovely glass of wine, and stayed in the Lilac room overlooking the gardens. Wow, what gardens! The only thing we regreted about our stay is that we did not plan a longer visit. This is the sort of hotel you go for a few days when you need some r and r! The staff is impeccable and the food was the best we have had, from St. Barth's to Morocco. The Manager of the dining room (which I'm sure is quite a task} was very accommodating and had extensive knowledge of his "cellar". We walked into the center of Bath through Victoria Park which is next door. It was magnificent to see all the lovely homes, gardens, the Crescent, and many other historical sights enroute. It may have taken us 15 or 20 minutes and was well worth it.. Bring your bathing suit and book spa services ahead. Take some time out in the garden and visit the exquisite tree (1600's) that graces the center. We loved this place and will most certainly return.

      Expensive, but nice

      from

      A superb hotel with wonderful food (Michelin starred) and extremely friendly staff. Situated in the village of Weston, jsut above the Victoria Park. Rooms vary from medium-sized to enormous, although a bit chinzy. Expensive, but you can negotiate group or long term rates. I find the Crescent rather impersonal, and much prefer the Priory.

Wales is lovely, Devon my perennial holiday home. Cornwall is stunning but somewhat scarey. Somerset and home are soft, gentle, welcoming, safe.

      I realized that each time I found myself in unpleasant surroundings I tensed in defensive reaction to prevent the slightest possibility of acceptance. If I ...

We rocked up to the venue before it started anyway, and since the day was coming up Fiona-and-Maddy, we got in straight away. I wouldn't have been amazingly disappointed if I'd missed the class, I was exhausted, but the opportunity couldn't be passed up. We paired up and learned ...
