... the hills, they have had to underpin a whole suburb to stop the houses falling. Any construction in Bath today has to be off bath stone, so much of the city looks the same. The Abbey Cathedral in the city centre has so many rotting old dead saints in it that the floor is starting to cave in. It will be an interesting challenge for Jesus on the last day. The ...

Today we visited Bristol and the highlight was the Clifton Suspension Bridge. This is one of Brunel’s finest achievements as an engineer and is a spectacular bridge towering 75m above the Avon river. Like all great engineering endeavours it has an ...
Our Sunday night worship experience was interesting to say the least! We headed off to the local Church of Wales 6pm service and were greeted warmly by the Vicar. We suspect they had not had visitors for some time. First hymn and Janet had a fit of the giggles, followed by Dave and then Paul. I was very disciplined! Trouble was we were all singing the hymn as it should have been ...
... days before their departure) it appears that a train reservation is enough to obtain the Visa, along with a complete itinerary of my stay. Sorting this will be my number one priority on Monday morning. I already have a quote for Ulaanbaatar to Beijing by train for £180. Not cheap but a necessary evil with just days to go to get this sorted. On the plus side it looks as if I will be in Tibet on Christmas Day. Looks as if it will certainly be a white Christmas for ...

They lost the reservation
I made a reservation back in the late summer for this february. I had confirmation number and confirmed reservation in December. when i got there they had no record of the reservation and no space and no suggestions as to vacancies anywhere else. Then they charged my credit card (wonder where they got that from!) for one night because I didn't cancel the reservation. No wonder they are no longer associated with Comfort Inn.
Okay, I should have taken notice, but I really didn't think a hotel could be that bad. Not true. It is that bad. The whole experience starts when you arrive in the car park (actually it is a small yard at the back of the hotel maily covered in builders rubble that can hold 6 cars at best). You will find that the street parking is full and there are no long stay car parks nearby. My single room was big enough for a one night stay, however once inside it took some time to open the door from the inside as the lock was faulty and I had to force my key between the lock and the door frame to pry it open and escape; the TV was newish but couldn't receive a picture as there was no aerial; as with another reviewer the sink was so small it was impossible to fill the kettle without using the cup; two small milk cartons were sufficient for the first cup of tea but then black coffee was the order of the night as there was no more milk; the ensuite looked newly decorated however no blind and just a rather dirty net curtain covering an unfrosted glass window. Again as with previous review I found the customary clump of someone elses hair in the shower which actually didn't matter because there was no hot water at 7.30am in the morning. The general feel of the hotel and bedroom was musty, run down and about to close. Having walked through the kitchen and dining room on my way to the car, I decided to take the advice of previous reviewers, give the breakfast a miss and settle for a little chef on the way home. They say you get what you pay for. Well, this might be one of the cheapest hotels in Bath but I wouldn't stay there again if they paid me. Never again will I moan about the prices of Holiday Inns, Hiltons, etc as they are worth every penny.
Squalid Hotel - Avoid
Squalid dirty Hotel, very rundown. Wreaked of cigar smoke throughout the whole hotel. The first room on the top floor was no bigger than a single with broken furniture, holes in the wall where a bedhead had been and a dilipidated TV whose aerial was a lead once part of a portable aerial. The next room I got transferred to was not much better, mildew around the bath, cobwebs hanging from the ceiling and a noisy extractor fan outside the window which ran all night. Breakfast consisted of "plastic" ham and cheese. Disgraceful
This was the worst hotel I have ever seen. The room was old and dirty. The bathroom had mildew in every corner, the towel rack had fallen off the wall, and the toilet was ancient and stained. When I picked up the phone to look for different accomodations, it was grimy and filthy. The bed was as firm as a worn-out sponge. The only positive thing I can say is that at the desk they didn't argue with me about cancelling my reservation. So far, it appears I wasn't charged anything.
Comfort Inn - anything but comfortable!
I stayed at the Comfort Inn, Bath in early July, 2004. I have never stayed in a worse place. Inattentive staff, poor drainage in shower, absolutely atrocious mattress (consisted entirely of broken springs), inadequate continental breakfast. I would rather spend twice what I did at another hotel. I did not sleep either night. Ugh.
I had booked a 3 night stay for 4 people on the 20/7/04 for the 12/8/04 - 15/8/04 as a 65th birthday treat for my mother. We arrived at 5pm - well past the 2pm check-in time - to find that not only were the 2 rooms - a double and a twin - not ready, we were also not even expected - after much searching our hotel booking was eventually found but were told that we would have to wait a further 30 minutes for the twin room to be made up. No apology or explanation was given without being prompted.
We booked the Comfort Inn this spring for our vacation in August. I booked because of the consistent quality and the Comfort Inn name.
This was meant to be a special occasion for our sons Graduation from Bath University. Comfort Hotel chosen for vicinity, 2 night stay, 13-15 July 2004. Rooms booked - 1 Double & 1 Single.
This is probably one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. There a few things to watch out for: 1. Parking is very limited (I'd say 8 spaces). The manager seems to park his own car there too and doesn't care if he takes up a space or blocks others in. Prepare to wait 20 minutes while he sends a waitress out with his keys. If you can't get parked you'll have to use metered spaces and return every 2 hours.
Nice hotel w/ great service
My boyfriend and I recently spent 3 weeks touring England, Scotland, & Ireland during which we stayed in a number of hotels. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Comfort Inn-Bath. It was located extremely close to the city center and the rates were quite reasonable. The room was spacious with a good size bathroom. Compared to some of the cramped hotels we had stayed in this was a delight. The staff was extremely helpful and polite. My only complaint is that the parking is very limited so grab a spot as quickly as possible or you will have to pay for an overnight spot
