The hotel was very dirty cobwebs hanging from bedroom ceiling , worst coffee I have ever tasted in the room. Reception was very slow to check us in. This is a de vere hotel but in my opinion it needs pulling down and start again with something modern. Will never stay here again

In a good location. Had to request a change of allocated room because there was no window. Second room had non opening windows on one of the hottest nights of the year. Definitely not 4 star standard and will not be returning.

This hotel is more like a 2 star. Needs a good clean, a used nappy was left in the garden in full view of staff. No one bothered to move it for 2 days ! Rooms are not clean, hot water coming from cold tap,dirty carpets.. Christmas songs playing in the bar , it is July ! Unhelpful staff, breakfast with rock hard eggs & not very clean in the restaurant. Had to pay for use of the spa which should be included in your stay. Sunbeds in garden without covers only 5 cushions.We have stayed here many times in the past, the hotel needs money spending on it tomake it an enjoyable experience & value for money.Such a shame as we will not rebook & waste our money.Please see other reviews on trip adviser which include photos before you book !!

The property is old and as such it is dated. We have been to the Royal Bath on and off for a few years and I am sad to say it has been getting slowly more tired! The company that now own it do not seem to care as much as previous owners and yes we didn't pay top notch for the room, but it was noisy. The spa also is tired looking, I can't remember the last time we stayed when everything there worked, heaven knows when the jaquzzi last worked?! It had been busy clearly by the amount of towels in the bin, but surely someone could have checked the cahnging rooms and given them a quick hose? The steam room although not smelling stale, didn't smell that fresh either. All in all we won't be in a hurry to return.
