A Hotel Fit for a City as Lush as Bath
I LOVED the Macdonald Bath Spa! As soon as I drove up to the property, I knew I was staying at the right place. It could not be more picturesque and serene. Upon check-in, I was happy to know our room was upgraded for free to a garden view. Even better, the hotel staff read our room requests in advance and made sure they were fulfilled. I would absolutely stay here again.

Disappointing and not worth the high price tag
The property is in a beautiful setting but is looking very tired and needs some updating. The service was pretty poor especially breakfast, 40 mins and many requests to get tea and coffee and over an hour to get hot food, fruit, cereal and juice buffet not restocked. Not enough staff, some of who clearly didn’t care about providing a good service and we were accused of lying by the duty manager when we complained. Such a shame considering how good this hotel used to be.

Really wonderful location and historic building. Sadly a few things let it all down as the weekend developed. The pool area was full, or so it looked like it was full because everyone had left their towels and there was no staff organising the area.There would have been beds available if staff had been there to track people coming and leaving. The breakfast we had to que to be given a table. Eventually they put us out in the conservatory which was pleasant but a walk back and forth to the main dinning hall. So short staffed they could not clean the available tables fast enough so plenty of space no one to attend to the clearing. I had to ask for plates and bowls and there were no glasses for the juice. Staff were just run off their feet. We ordered our cooked breakfast but it took almost and hour from the time we sat down, didn't make a great start to the day. The room was comfortable and the bed was great. All looking very tired in the bathroom , pool area and changing rooms. It obviously had its charm but it definitely needs more staff to run a hotel of this size and quality. I would not considerate it a 5* hotel. We were shocked to have to pay for parking which was not on the booking and an extra cost for taxes and fees. Staff were all very pleasant and very helpful.Great location for getting into the centre.
