#15 of 40 in Bath
Built of golden Bath stone, The Ayrlington is a large and handsome English Heritage listed building set in a splendid walled oriental garden with exceptional views of the City and its medieval Abbey. Bath's magnificent historic sites, speciality shops and excellent restaurants are all just a five minutes level stroll away. all 19 bedrooms have an individual theme and are beautifully furnished, some with four poster beds. The emphasis is on creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquility in the centre of Bath's vibrant city centre. The Ayrlington has a licensed residents' bar, secure on-site private parking and is entirely non smoking. We cannot accept children under 5 years of age. The Ayrlington's ongoing commitment to quality has brought some well deserved and hard earned awards - five stars from Visit Britain, a listing in The Good Hotel Guide and multiple Bath in Bloom garden awards.

We often stay in the Bath area and chose the Ayrlington for a weekend stay. We booked the Empire Room via Expedia. On arrival, the property presents as an imposing Victorian (former) residence, converted into hotel use. Actually, I believe it is two former semi-detached homes now remodelled into a single hotel. Parking seemed incredibly cramped, but our arrival in the car park, just off the road was spotted by the receptionist who popped out and expertly guided us into an available parking space. The receptionist was incredibly welcoming and walked with us up the three or four steps into the lobby. We were efficiently checked in and shown to the Empire Room on the ground floor. On entry the room was beautiful. The centre-piece being a four-poster bed and sumptuously furnished with both period a reproduction furniture, two easy chairs and a table with views through a large bay-window, over the gardens to the City a few hundred metres beyond. There was plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, a nook with a dressing table, iron, ironing board and hairdryer. The walls were decorated with rich wallpaper and a number of themed paintings. The Empire Room comes with a fireplace and further decorated with heavy luxurious window drapes and ornaments. The ensuite was of a generous size with further chandelier, huge walk-in shower, vanity washbasin and plenty of storage space for your own toiletries. Complimentary shampoos, soap and conditioner were provided along with fluffy white towels. Sleep quality was amazing. Our tariff included full English breakfast (you need to book your breakfast 'slot' on check-in - but this isn't enforced from what we saw in the breakfast room). The breakfast is cooked to order and was of very good quality. There is a resident's lounge with bar just off reception which had a roaring fire when we visited in December. The centre of Bath is a 10 minute stroll, with a myriad of shops, sights and restaurants. A homely boutique hotel which is full of character and with lovely staff.

Our room was lovely, a good size, clean, quiet and comfortable. We had a great view of the garden. There were comfy chairs and a fantastic bathroom. Breakfast was great. Staff were friendly. Good to have parking, but rather tricky to manoeuvre if you have a larger car. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay again.

This is a lovely hotel, well placed for the sights of Bath. It looks like it used to be 2 separate houses that have been knocked through to make this hotel. Nice building, has some age to it. Large room. Two lovely large windows and nice high decorated ceilings. Big bed and a large settee also. Nice view over the garden but you can't see any of the City as the tree's have grown tall. Breakfast as expected. Staff friendly especially Bianca who is a wonderful person. Very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Cleaning staff were great, hotel is clean and tidy. Only down side is that some of the red paint in the room was peeling off and it would look nicer if it had been painted again, also, didn't realise it was free parking if you park on the busy road outside the hotel. If you park in the hotel car park it is £10 per night. We stayed here for our 30th Wedding Anniversary and we enjoyed our stay.

Very friendly staff who were helpful and professional and nothing was too much trouble to make our visit the best it could be. Bianca especially is a real asset to the hotel. Our room was spacious and overlooked the beautiful garden - spotlessly clean and wonderfully quiet. The cold buffet table at breakfast was a little limited - some cheeses and a more varied fruit salad would have been more appetising. Not everyone wants a cooked breakfast. Well situated close to the centre of Bath. We had a lovely stay.

Liked · Breakfast food quality was very good. Parking was a bonus. Good sized bathroom with adequate towels, although no toilet roll holder, toilet rolls just resides on the side of the bath. Nice carpet on stairway, and lounge area lovely, pity rooms are not so well decorated. Disliked · Service was not great, lost flowers and wine ordered and paid for prior to visit. Room very tired and bed uncomfortable (very lumpy) with really cheap pillows. Should have been a King size, but was 2 singles zipped together. TV poor, not even free view. Paper peeling off walls, and bathroom window could not be used as it was waiting for maintenance, must have been a while as the dead creatures in there have died long ago. Had to book time for breakfast, then table not ready and had to wait. Was told this was because of Covid, but the b/fast area is too small to accommodate all guests at the same time. Cleaning of room not good, just pulled up quilt, nothing else. Water pressure poor and takes an age for water to disperse. Bed too close to wall at end of bed, so difficult to manoeuvre, especially as TV is on the wall there (mind your head). Complained on more than one occasion, but staff not interested - no management visibility. If visiting Bath again, would be better off in a 'chain' hotel, as at least you know what you are getting

We enjoyed 2 nights in The Tulip Room on the top floor of The Arylington Hotel in Bath. Location was great for me, an easy walk into town, however with a friend with slight mobility issues, it was a bit of a struggle. No lift in the building. The Tulip Room set up as a twin was delightful, larger than expected with a sofa area quite separate to the bedroom. The beds were really soft (a little too marshallow like for me) and the wardrobe could have done with adult size hangers as clothes fell off the teeny-tiny child size hangers that were in there. Overall, we were not disappointed. The staff couldn't do enough and were exceptionally polite and friendly. A shout out to Nenita on front desk and to the Chef as the cooked breakfasts were a real treat. Whilst we didn't enjoy a late check out, the hotel did allow us to leave our car in their car park a little beyond check out which was a nice touch knowing how expensive parking can be in Bath city centre. I feel sure that any future guests will be happy with this as their choice. BIG thanks to all the staff we encountered during our stay... x

We chose here because of its location and the option to have a suite. We were so pleased we did! We could walk into the city centre in just a few minutes. Our room was excellent (Grand Suite) There was a comfy relaxing seating area, comfy bed and large bathroom. The breakfast in the morning was tasty too. Friendly and helpful staff as well. Would love to come back here again.
