A wonderful experience. ”

From the moment we arrived, my partner and I were greeted with a lovely welcome and were promptly checked-in and shown to our room. Upon arrival we were reminded that their spa would be closed during a portion of our stay due to essential maintenance, which we were aware of and completely understand. However, we were able to enjoy our first night in the spa, which was glorious. The atmosphere was very relaxing and there were a variety of facilities to make use of, including the steam room, thermal baths and a sauna. We were even offered complimentary hot chocolate! If this wasn't enough, we were also offered two complimentary vouchers to use at the Thermae Spa, which was literally the building next to the Gainsborough - perfect! Our room was beautiful as was the entire spa hotel. Staff were extremely professional and accommodating, getting to know us on a personal level and providing brilliant knowledge and recommendations of how to enjoy our time here in Bath. Overall, we cannot recommend this place enough. From the quality of the our room, to the exceptional service provided from all of the staff, we are extremely grateful for offering us a perfect experience. Thank you.

Felt comfortable as a solo traveller, any solo traveller knows the politeness of staff can make or break the trip when they are your main interaction for the day. I found the staff to be polite, helpful and chatty, particularly the lady who checked me in. Lovely facilities. Restaurant was closed while I was there so only downside was I couldn't order room service, but everything else was great. The spiced hot chocolate in the Spa area is so good!

Very good central location, just a couple of minutes from Avon Street car park (beware, hopeless payment system), warm friendly staff, even warmer spa (brilliant), immaculately clean everywhere, but the dining room decor is not very inviting. Instead for dinner we recommend Sotto Sotton (very good Italian in a cellar) and for lunch, the Pump Room, lovely period setting.
