Historical Traveller Reviews of The Queensberry Hotel
Horrid, appalling and in sad shapefrom allesandra
The reception staff and the dining staff...in fact all the staff save one young employee (bellman? concierge? porter? waiter?...think he did everything) were unpleasant and unfriendly.
The room we had was one of their "best" and the high price was absolutely unwarranted for such a ridiculously hideous, threadbare and dirty room. The room was large and the ceiling very high, but it was so rundown and cheaply furnished with the most hideous circa 1960's decor. In any event, my skin crawled at the sight of the stained, ultrasuede sofa, shag rug over a filthy wall-to-wall. Billions of filthy throw pillows on the bed which I removed instantly (and then washed my hands because they were so dirty). Our windows were enormous but the vista into the sad, sordid flats across the street made it necessary to keep the shades drawn. All in all, I had cancelled a reservation at the Royal Crescent to stay in this horrid place at the firm suggestion of a person who hailed from Bath. Well, although this place was less expensive than the Royal Crescent, I felt completely cheated. I would have preferred to pay more for elegance than get ripped-off for a disgracefully over-rated, disgraceful place. It was truly awful.
Absolutely Recommended!from A TripAdvisor Member
We had a fantastic experience. We were actually impressed with the hotel before we even reached it - the directions and narrative made a refreshing change from the multimap images that you normally get from hotels - these directions were easy to follow and made the journey remarkably stress free!
When we arrived, we were greeted, checked in, our car parked and our
bags taken up to our room all with swiftness, and we were most impressed
with the decor and layout of the room. Think hip hotels meets country house and you'll not go far wrong.
Having stayed with all of the large chain hotels across the world, I
find that the privately run boutique hotels and now most definately my
preferred accommodation - well done to the Quensberry team and I have no hesitation in recommending this as a fantastic place to stay!

Fantastic Quality Boutique Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We arrived very late at the hotel and Bath is a typical English town, no where to eat or drink after 11pm, however the hotel has a 24 hour bar based on an honesty system - you help yourself, excellent idea!
My only criticism is that although the bed was king-sized it was much shorther than average, my feet hung off the edge and I'm 5'10"!
A great place to stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Underrated and better value than competitionfrom Lefant
What a transformation - We will be back!from A TripAdvisor Member
I got a shock when I arrived! Gone was the old fashioned "B&B hatch style" reception desk, there was no trace of the "chintzy" wing back chairs or frilly curtains in the drawing room. I nearly walked straight back out thinking I had arrived at the wrong hotel!
The reception area is now open-plan with fresh orchids on the desk. The drawing room now has over-sized very comfy sofas and interesting art work. The only familiarity was found in the friendly staff, I even recognised a couple of them from my last visit (the management must be doing something right to keep hold of staff in the hospitality industry!)
It turns out that the hotel changed hands just after my last stay and the new owners, a husband and wife team, have refurbished the drawing room, bar and restaurant. They are starting on the bedrooms this month and I can't wait to come back and stay in one of the new rooms which are rumoured to have trendy designs, CD players, digital radios and even plasma screen TV's.
To sum up, the changes that have been made to the hotel are great. The Queensberry of old is no more and an exciting contemporary boutique hotel has emerged in it's place.
I would highly recommend it!
A Classic Bath Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Queensberry - highly recommendedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
A lovely recently refurbished hotel, with each room its own classy design and high quality materials, traditional and yet very contemporary, immaculately maintained; personalised (in the true sense of the word) service to top it off! I did not eat at the restaurant, but the taxi driver did make some very nice noises about it…
At the heart of Bath, I recommend this hotel for its exquisite charm to anyone visiting the City of Bath and wanting a relaxing and quiet place to stay.…
One last point, to make you feel even more homely, there is NO background muzac… and the place feels even better for it!
Go and try and enjoy!
Great Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We have a very comfortable room on the top floor with amazing views over the rooftops and hills of Bath, we even made ourselves late for breakfast lying in bed watching the hot air balloons drifting past!
Dinner in The Olive Tree was fantastic, the food was delicious, the staff were cheerful and the service seamless. The puddings were to die for and definately not good for the waistline!
We had a hearty breakfast the next morning, the continental buffet offered a great selection and we enjoyed the best cooked breakfast we have ever had in a hotel. The staff that looked after us were just as cheery as they had been the night before.
The Queensberry is well run hotel with a friendly team and offered value for money in a city which can be very expensive. We can't wait to stay again soon.
Top Local Tips for Bath
Thermal Baths If staying in the Queensbury they will supply you with a robe and towels for the baths/spa
Afternoon tea at The Royal Crescent Hotel Book ahead to avoid disappointment - afternoon tea in the garden of the hotel is popular when the weather is nice. I didn't book and was almost consigned to the lounge area but there was one table left.
"Browns" Great value and good qaulity
