Spa weekend with friends

Pros: Everything!
Cons: We felt that the cost of the meals was too high but the hotel is surrounded by restaurants so that did not present a problem
Location: Right in the centre of all the main tourist attractions and shops. Everything in Bath is within walking distance including the station.
The Gainsborough Hotel was a wonderful discovery for a weekend reunion. I have never encountered such delightful and friendly staff throughout the hotel and the welcome in Reception is superb. Our rooms and bathrooms were perfect and no small extras had been overlooked. The Spa is complete luxury and we would return just for the pleasure of using it again. A perfect weekend!

Edles Hotel in ausgezeichneter Lage

Pros: Lage, Spa, Ausstattung
Cons: Frühstück etwas verbessern
Location: Am Rande der Fussgängerzone. Ideal.
Der Aufenthalt war ausgezeichnet. Der Parkplatz war bei der Ankunft leider schon besetzt. In unmittelbarer Nähe hat es aber ein Parkhaus. Sehr schöner Spa-Bereich. Frühstücksauswahl eher etwas dürftig.
