Historical Traveler Reviews Wentworth House Bath
Nice little hotel
Stayed at the Wentworth for 2 nights. It is a nice distance from the town centre and you have the advantage of a big carpark which other hotels/B&Bs do not have. There is quite a steep hill to walk up though on return to the hotel or there is a good bus service.
We stayed in a 4 poster room which was nice but a little small. The room was £85 per night so not too pricey but I think 2 nights was enough. If we stayed any longer I think I would have to have a bigger room. Nice breakfast included. I think though there is a change of management at the moment going on. The new owners were very polite but their English is poor. However there are some members of staff who Ii think have been there for a while who seem to help them out with the langauge.
Nice pool but I think it is a bit of a cheek that you have to pay extra for the hot tub.
Over rated & Over priced
We have just returned from what was advertised as a 'Champagne Weekend' at this hotel & I have to say I agree with the most recent comments. We payed £250 for two nights which I feel was very overpriced. The rooms were average with an extremely basic and shabby bathroom which was always freezing as the heating was only ever on at night. We had an hour usage of the hot tub included in the price which we did not use as it was in the middle of the garden in full view of the diners - not very private for a romantic evening. Also we were expected to uncover and set up the hot tub ourselves with instrutions to do this being left in our room which we found very distasteful, especially due to the money we had payed. In fact althought the hotel was full we did not see the hot tub used once!
This aside the food was good and the staff friendly, but it is nothing more than an average B&B. I do not recommend for those seeking something a little special.
Overpriced and overrated!
We booked a two night stay in this hotel at a cost of £110 per night for what was supposed to be a romantic weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The room we received was tiny - just about enough room for the supposed king-size four poster bed to be squeezed in. We did complain but were offered no alternative - a simple stay or go but you will be charged £220 whatever you decide.
The room was not only tiny but the bedcover was ripped, the tap in the bathroom dripped constantly, and the shower couldn't stand up under the weight of running water!
The staff themselves were very friendly and the breakfast food was lovely - these two things we cannot fault at all.
I would say that the Wentworth is not the lovely hotel that it advertises itself to be but it is in fact an overpriced and overrated B&B which leaves a nasty taste in the mouth knowing that you have paid over the top prices for a very mediocre place.
what a fabulous hotel, we stayed in the four poster room with conservatory on a champagne weekend. the staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpfull,the food was really nice and the continental breakfast in bed was unbelievable (juice, tea, flapjack, cereal, yogurt, fruit cocktail toast,jam). even though we went in febuary we had an hour in the hot tub wow it was starting to get dark we were served champagne lovely and warm even though it was freezing outside very romantic. the walk into town is about 10 mins nice walk down the hill abit harder going back up but managed it the roman baths were well worth a visit very interesting. will definetely return in the future.
Great value for money
Booked this over the internet. Attracted by photos and idea of a small hotel rather than chain - attracted by car parking on site- few hotels in Bath offered this. Had three fantastic comfortable nights in the double room - four poster seemed a waste on my husband after 30 years!!- spent the cash on meals out instead. The short cut to town was refreshing in the morning but late at night (9pm after 12 hours walking and dining in Bath) we slowly returned on the main road. The next night we caught the bus - it took only 2 and 1/2 minutes and cost £2.60 for 2! Breakfast could not have been better (Any cooked mixture and buffet included). The tub was only an extra £5 including dressing gown and slippers. Friendly staff efficient check out. I'd go again but grest distance from home. (Free night voucher given at end of stay too)
Nice hotel, a short walk up the hill!
This was a great hotel, very nice scenery, located on top of the hill beside the city of Bath. The city was very small, so the hotel did not seem far away. Recommended!
Bath time Bertie
First arrived to be shown a dingy room, which was appalling as we too had booked a 4 poster - but we complained and we were then shown a beautiful upper floor room. From then on, the staff were falling over themselves to give top service. Get the feeling from previous reviews that they probably try to give the cellar room to every one. But beautiful mornings spent in a hot tub looking over the city. Ok so the hotels on a hill, but hey, walk off your full breakfast to get a taxi for a few punds back. We'll be definitely back. Mark, was always happy to see guests and he deserved a mention.
Try the hot tub.
The only bad thing about this hotel was that we couln't stay for longer.
It makes a refreshing change to get really good value for your money.
The staff were cheerful, friendly and extremely helpful.
The room was clean, well furnished and nicely decorated.
The complimentary breakfast was lovely, although i was a little too hungover to give it proper attention.
The hike to and from town was a bit of a bummer, but thats the price you pay for the excellent veiw from the hot tub which, for me, was the highlight of my weekend.
Sitting there looking out over the city, with a bottle of wine, in a bubbling hot tub is something everyone should try.
I would strongly recommend the Wentworth.
My husband and I stayed at Wentworth House for one night after Christmas 2004. They were short staffed, however, service was excellent. We had a king-sized 4 poster bed and a large bathroom and a view overlooking the pool (which was not not being used for the winter season). Breakfast was average, but the staff were all very accomodating and the dining area was fantastic. If you are fit and have time to walk to the citicentre, then do so, otherwise it's really not a bother to drive down and park in the carpark. I would definitely return to the Wentworth House and would definitely recommend it to everyone.
Very disappointing hotel. We booked a king 4-poster room, but were changed to a dingy room in the basement upon check-in; when we checked out, they hadn't changed the tariff and I had to negotiate with one of the breakfast waitresses to get a more reasonable price (which still worked out to $160/night!). Linens were appalingly shabby. Toilet paper and soap were like those you find in public bathrooms. Mattresses squishy and soft. They charge you to use the hot tub. Also, it's billed as a "15 minute stroll into Bath center", but doesn't mention that it's straight downhill (which means a 30-minute mountain hike on the way back up). Breakfast nothing special. All-in-all done on the cheap and would not recommend.

Stage one of our journey...arrived at Bristol bus station (an hour early). Having a coffee and a blueberry muffin to keep us going until we get to the airport. I found one of Tilly's cat hairs on my trousers and felt a bit emotional and homesick already. But it's cold and raining here in Bristol City centre, so I'm sure when the 36 degree heat of Bangkok hits me I will forget all about the ...
Finally, today's the day! We fly tonight from Heathrow. This morning will be spent finishing off final bits of packing-checking what's packed, unpacking it and repacking it! The house will have a final quick clean to leave it tidy for our house guests Tim and Hannah, amble food will be laid out for the cats, Adam will spend ages pretending to tie up all the loose ends of work and I will faff around deciding which shoes to wear to the airport. Then we will be on our ...
... to tour the baths themselves. Still steaming from the natural spring water to this day. We were invited to the fountain room which pushes fresh hot springs water up through a fountain (even in antiquity) and to taste the water which is reputed to having healing qualities. I accepted, Min said no way. I took one sniff though and the sulphur was overwhelming. No thanks.
The final stop was a small town where we saw ...
... up early and at least make our hair half-decent. We could go for ball costume, not daywear. We both had a restless sleep that night, and the jet lag wasn't solely to blame. We woke up at 7am after sleeping with our hair in paper rags, donned our dresses and I got started styling my hair. In true Fiona style I bit off more than I could chew and attempted the double ribbon style Marianne wears in the BBC Sense & Sensibility. It's hard doing your own hair without ...
... rows but my job is to work the rudder. The river has very little current and we start upstream for about 30 min then come back downstream for 25. It's quiet and calm and beautiful. The River Avon is wide and slow with trees and willows down to the River's edge. We see geese with their goslings and several other people on the river. Walking back to city center we see swans with their signets. It doesn't get much better.
