Good Hotel Guide Review

Close to the Assembly Rooms and other Bath glories, in ‘an unsurpassed situation’ yet ‘so quiet’, Laurence and Helen Beere’s hotel is smart and getting smarter, with bedrooms and bathrooms receiving a designer make-over. Beautifully proportioned junior suites occupy the first-floor drawing rooms of the four Georgian houses that combine to make the whole. The four-poster suite has a modern four-poster and double walk-through shower, while some deluxe doubles can accommodate a child’s roll-away bed. Contemporary decor and furnishings combine happily with original features. In Old Q bar, the spirit of John Douglas, Marquess of Queensberry, is larkily evoked with a list of contemporary Queensberry Rules – no stilts, pogo sticks, audible obscenities or shouting into mobile phones… (‘But Old Q was the notorious 4th duke,’ a pedant writes; don’t spoil the fun, we say.) Here you can take a club sandwich, a ploughman’s platter, while in the Olive Tree restaurant, Chris Cleghorn creates tasting menus for omnivores, vegetarians, vegans (order à la carte if you prefer). A typical dish: brill on the bone, artichoke, mustard, button mushroom, sea herbs. Service is ‘happy, relaxed, positive, friendly’.

Guest comments

'An excellent hotel. We booked directly with them, so had 50% off car parking and 10% off food. Our room (room 9) on the first floor was in very good decorative order, soft classical music playing, and very good bathroom. Public areas are comfy, with complementary tea/coffer in the front lounge. We had the tasting menu in the Olive Tree restaurant along with matching wines for just under £100 (after the 10% reduction on food) which we thought excellent value. ' - Donald Reid - August, 2805
'A near faultless stay. The Georgian proportions produced a room and bathroom of generous size. The plumber who installed the hot taps on the hand basins in the bathroom had a sense of humour – they turn on clockwise! The cocktail bar really is a cocktail bar – with a personable and knowledgeable barman. The Olive Tree rightly has a very good reputation locally. The food is delicious, a great deal of care is given to the presentation. Service is attentive without being intrusive. Those with limited mobility need to be aware that descent to the lower level involves a certain amount of mountaineering. The valet parking system works well. ' - Peter Jowitt - November, 2015
