Happy Anniversary
We celebrated our 25th anniversary in the thermal baths. Loved it!

Splendor and service!
Loved this hotel, amazing service and attention to details everywhere. A well stocked fridge and a good bed. Only problem was a broken shower in both my room and my parents, they could have done a little more to fix those as they weren’t ‘new’ problems. Overall I would go back in a heartbeat.

Impeccable staff and customer service to the highest level.When we left we were driving to Liverpool & the Manager Brian gave us his card telling us to call him if we needed assistance.Really?We will return

Great Hotel but be aware
I had an overall good experience. The hotel is a great location to the center of town and the Roman Baths with less than 5 minute walk. The presentation was outstanding but being a younger couple I felt judge right away due to age and appearance. The usual guests are definitely upperclass/fancy dressed! But this did not stop us acting as we always do being kind and generous. Was disappointed when arriving in the room there was no remote for the TV and only 1 white sugar for Tea or coffee but plenty of sweeteners. This was probably just an oversite on the staffs side as the next day the mini bar was properly stocked and TV remote was brought(as requested). Be aware, the lovely pool displayed on there main picture is only available a total of 4 hours a day! 7am-9am and 8pm-10pm for guest unless you buy one of there Spa treatments. Wish this was explained better in there description.
