      Historical Traveler Reviews Pratt's Hotel Bath

      Fantastic staff, great location


      We stayed for the "Easter package" which includes some entertainment such as a boat trip and open top bus ride in Bath. The staff threw themselves enthusiastically into these and made them great fun.

      Accommodation was fine - on the top floor with good views to Priory Park. Due to the central location it was a bit noisy at night but all the sights and shops are within easy walking distance.

      With the hotel being full for the Easter break, it was buffet service for breakfast which isn't my favourite but the dinner more than made up for it being really, really good.

      I agree with the last reviewer in that the bed was very hard but for 3 nights we coped.

      Emma, the General Manager was superb and made herself known to each and every guest - not something often found even in small establishments!

      All in all, an excellent break and I'd recommend this hotel without hesitation.

      Great locaiton, Horrible beds


      Despite the bed being the most uncomfertable and hard bed we have ever slept on, this hotel is a good value. We had an awful time getting to sleep and were cranky and tired the next day. The bed desperately needed to be replaced.

      We spent one night with our children in this hotel. We paid a bit more for a site, which is worth it with little ones. There was a seperate area for the wardrobe and desk which fit the travel cot/crib. The sofa included a pull-out bed big enough for two children. The was a large bathroom and large sitting area also. But European standards, this was a good sized hotel room. The staff put yellow rubber ducks in the tub and provided the cot/crib for us. There were also willing to keep our cooler overnight in the walk-in refridgerator and freez or ice blocks.

      Breakfast was included and was typical english fare. Healthy options were limited to cereal and three types of fruit. High-chairs are available.

      Location is excellent being only a short walk to the Bath Abbey and Roman Baths. Parking is in a pay and display nearby.

      Great hotel in the center of Bath


      My wife and I stayed there for 2 nights and would definately recommend it. To summarised

      Good points :

      1. Very friendly staff. Know what needs to be done without having to ask.

      2. Hotel & rooms are clean and tidy.

      3. 2 mins walk to city center.

      4. Breakfast, cream tea and dinner were excellent.

      5. Good value for price.

      Other points :

      1. Parking is in a public carpark across the road for approx 11 per day (free at night). It's well lit and next to police station.

      Charming Historic Getaway


      Stayed two nights at the Pratt's Hotel, a charming antique-filled early Victorian inn (once frequented by Sir Walter Scott)in the center of historic Bath, overlooking the breathtaking Cathedral. Our room was cozy, immaculate and comfortable. The staff was very knowledgeable and pleasant, the food (dinner and breakfast included) was delicious and plentiful. The common rooms were a delight...several small and cozy spots to have tea and read by the fireplace. The dining rooms are gracious and the pub room is just what you'd expect...warm woods and period furnishings. The location is ideal for exploring the town, around the corner from the gorgeous abbey and the amazing Roman baths,and close to many wonderful shops, the theater and cinema...and a two-minute walk to the railroad station. A great value.

      Loved it - Very Satisfied


      My husband & I spent a night at Pratt's after having been disappointed in the B & B we had originally booked. Bath was very busy & we were lucky to get a last minute cancellation for 100 GBP. The room was probably not quite as nice as others in the hotel as it was a smoking room but we were very happy with it. It was a good size & had a very large bathroom. It was also immaculate. Staff couldn't have been more accommodating & public rooms were lovely. We had a beautiful view and, as seniors, we really appreciated the short walk to all Bath's attractions. We will definitely return here on our next visit.

      Like stepping into a Jane Austen novel


      As the chaperone for a group of high school students on a literary tour of England, I was immediately enchanted by the welcome we received at this wonderfully located, delicately decorated, and historically preserved gem of a hotel. Everything in the small yet efficient lobby was elegantly placed and included a beverage table featuring local water, thought to have healing powers.

      The rooms brought cries of delight from our impressionable group as they discovered unique qualities in each room. In one, a myserious set of stairs led to the enormous, light filled bathroom. All of the bathrooms featured heated towel bars, generous pump bottles of lotion, shampoo, and hand soap, and.....rubber ducks!

      The decidedly feminine decor was perfect for our group of 14 girls and 2 boys and included such niceties as plump coverlets, a writing desk, small sitting chair, and lovely tea service for the user's convenience.

      The three course dinner featured creative delicacies such as a fresh mozzarella and tomato salad with pesto and a filling pasta dish with a delicate sauce hinting of unusual spice combinations. For heartier diners, a perfectly presented beef entree arrived adorned with traditional Yorkshire pudding. Large platters of 3-4 vegetables were added to each table and we were impressed with the obvious freshness and variety of the delicious vegetables. As an ice cream lover, I couldn't resist the three small balls of exquisite Italian ice cream nestled into a crunchy bowl. It truly was the best ice cream I have ever eaten. The other desserts were equally impressive and creative, including a creme de brulee and our introduction to the intensely sweet profiteroles, which are somewhat like cream puffs.

      After dinner, one could easily stroll through Bath to take in the stately buildings made of a rich yellow brick and the many spectacular gardens. At the Pratt, however, our students were content to take their tea and explore the many large parlors filled with books, games, and atmosphere. One of the most enjoyable parts of the stay occurred when several of the girls had a "salon" in the women's rest room! The parlor preceeding the rest room was huge and lent itself exceptionally well to over an hour of excited girl talk!

      For an experience off the beaten path and for a glimpse of what it might have been like to live over a hundred years ago, gather your trunks, hat boxes, and maids, and head over to Pratt's Hotel. Or, you can just bring your backpack and imagine what it must have been like to arrive in the town where one came to see and be seen.

      Big Room but expensive


      We stayed one night at Pratt's Nov '03. Since it was just one night we splurged and got the four poster queen-sized bed which was booked thru Orbitz for 140 GBP. It was a large room on the floor one above street level. The bathroom was large for England and probably average for the States, with a tub. Also included was coffe/tea maker, TV, trouser press, and large bottle of toiletries. The location was very convienent to the train and bus station and walking distance the city center (and I'm not much for walking). The only negative was no ventilation in the room except for the windows. It was stuffy even with windows open.

      A true "Jane Austinique" hotel


      We stayed here one night and, based on my own personal level of comfort, one night was great, two nights would not have made it for me.

      Our room was very small and the bathroom was not to my level of cleanliness (hair in the tub and a toilet seat that I re-cleaned! (Ha Ha)) The sitting areas are very sweet, but the chairs have seen better days. I personally do not like to leave my room key at the front desk, which is their request. We came home very late at night and the person on duty seemed bothered that he had to let us in. But having said that, my friend loved the place. She thought it had character and a quaintness. She doesn't care about having things "clean" like I do, so it didn't bother her that the room wasn't "perfect."

      Genteel and comfortable


      Pratt's Hotel is housed in a series of Georgian townhouses, conveniently located in the center of Bath. It's just a few minutes' walk from attractions such as the Abbey and Roman Baths, as well as the bus and train stations. Rooms vary greatly in size and decor; try not to get assigned one of the tiny rooms on the top floor. Most rooms on the lower floors are spacious, airy, and well-decorated. Bathrooms are functional, but have unfortunate dark tiling that can make them appear a bit dingy. They also have those annoying separate hot and cold water faucets. Public lounges on the ground floor are beautifully decorated and welcoming, as is the spacious restaurant, where a bountiful and excellent English breakfast (included in the room rate) is served every morning.

      The Most Wonderful Hotel Ever


      Pratt's Hotel in Bath, England is the most quaint, wonderful, old hotel. The rooms are wonderful in the fact that they have comfortable beds, great views, and are very clean. I haven't stayed at a place this nice in the U.S. I was served a wonderful breakfast in the dinning room. The hotel is centrally located so it is but a short walk to the Roman baths. There is a park that borders the river and it is only a short walk from Pratt's. If you are ever in Bath or nearby and need a room, please consider Pratt's for a lovely time.

What a beautiful city! The city center itself is fairly small, manageable to walk around in a couple hours, but birstol itself consists of many small suburbs which makes it large! 400,000+ people.

      ... whose lure was the ruins of a fourteenth-century castle. Besieged by Cromwell’s army, much of the castle was destroyed by the cannon-fire, though the North wall managed to stand until 1910. The moat is still there, if full of duckweed, and the ruins are there to be rambled around, so naturally we did just that. While I do think restoring old castles has its place and can be a fine thing to do, I have to admit that ruins are so much more satisfying. It’s like rock-scrambling for ...

      We also have the Jane Austen Museum and the Roman Baths to visit as well! So much more to do, this is a crazy trip of a lifetime and its been amazing so far!
