  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Following the relaxing of COVID 19 restrictions we were undoubtedly similar to a lot of people, keen to escape and experience a small piece of luxury at a five star hotel. We chose the Macdonald Bath Spa hotel, booking two rooms, a double and a twin. We expected the spa to be closed, but were looking forward to dining at the hotel. Upon arrival the receptionist informed us they were not aware of our room requirements, however, kind attempts were made to overcome the issue. We settled for two twin rooms in order to be close to the children. The double room was literally the other side of the hotel. We called the hotel whilst in Bath in order to reserve a table for dinner. We were informed that the restaurant was open, and that it was busy, however, they booked us in at 7pm. It was whilst attempting to dine, that we truly became aware of the ‘basic’ state of the hotel, and at how unprepared they were to cater for their guests. The restaurant is in fact closed. Guests are not informed about this. You are ‘expected’ to eat outside, in the lounge on a couple of small side tables or low coffee tables!! The food took forever to arrive and when it did the bare table had not even been laid. My complaint resulted in us being offered a large side table off a corridor! Our ‘escape’ to experience a small taste of luxury had been ruined by what appears to be ‘a grab the money and run business’. I would advise you to not stay at the hotel at this stage.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The building is amazing however the spa is a very tired looking and the sash windows in our room let in a draft as they didn’t lock. I was shocked to find that on top of the room rate we then had to pay £15 a night to park the car. Not best pleased about that as ebookers did not point this out to us. Also on the website I used the filters to “breakfast included” but when we got there it wasn’t included. The price for this was £21.50 per person which I think is a totally outrageous price. We had a perfectly good breakfast at Bills in town costing £24 for two of us. Overall wouldn’t book through ebookers again or stay at this hotel.

Lovely, but eat out for better value for money

Bed was excellent. Good room size, good flow on the shower. Excellent location for walking into bath (10mins). Given the cost the bathroom could do with a bit of work (peeling paint in the shower, hole under the shower door allowed a lot of water onto the floor). One of the steam rooms was also out of use. The food was lovely, though expensive. The price of the beer, wine and spirits was just silly. One would expect a certain level of price gouging in a hotel, but my personal recommendation would be to book one of the numerous establishments within walking distance.
