Best Western Abbey Hotel Bath Hotel Review
by Anna Cliff
After a last minute decision to go to the Bath Christmas markets we booked a room at the Best Western Abbey Hotel, which seemingly had the last double room available in town, although this came at a premium.
The hotel has two major attractions, one is the location which is pretty much as central as one could hope for giving easy access to the cities major attractions including the Georgian Crescent, the Circus and Roman baths. In addition, if staying at the time of the Christmas markets then one is sure to be in the centre of the action meaning that all those Christmas gifts can easily be dropped off back at the hotel without having to walk miles with heavy shopping bags.
The second major attraction the hotel building itself, the hotel fits right into architectural heritage of the city of Bath and guests are treated to a stay in a classical Georgian building dating back to 1742.
As for the hotel its self, rooms are large and comfortable and contain all the usual array of tea and coffee making facilities as well as a TV and other knickknacks. While rooms are comfortable, they can be viewed a little dated and would certainly benefit from a bit of a spruce up.
Overall, service levels were extremely high in what was probably the height of the season for the hotel. Staff met our needs at all times and despite getting the last room in the hotel, check in and out was efficient and we never had to wait more than a few minutes to be seen to.
Despite the slightly dated feel of the hotel rooms, we would certainly stay here again if only because the hotel has such a great location for both the cities attractions and shopping in the Christmas season.
