    Contemporary Comfort

    by

    Great location and 'good vibrations'.
    Built in 1771 as a townhouse for the Marquis of Queensberry, the hotel is quietly situated close to the Circus and the Assembly Rooms. Original Georgian plasterwork sets the tone. Shades of teal, chocolate and indigo create the syncopation. A handsome mix of contemporary light and dark wood furnishings give an uptempo feel to this place. Renovated baths are spa-like. The visitor quickly realises that the Queensberry is a privately-owned establishment that prides itself on individual comfort and personal service. Yet for all the embellishments, prices are reasonable. Double rooms are L 100-140.

    Unique Quality: Take a stroll in the 'secret garden'. Read the paper while savoring your coffee in the library lounge. The noise of the outside world does not penetrate to disturb your meditations.

    The Olive Tree restaurant in the lower level
    offers compact portions of modern cuisine in a blend of English and Mediterranean flavors. Lunch menus are priced from L13.50. Dinners feature 3 courses at L26.50 but a la carte items are also avaliable.
    Oenophiles will enjoy the eclectic offerings served at the handsome wood and leather bar.

Great Place!

by TripAdvisor Member bertie

We know Bath really well and have stayed in this fab city on many occasions - a long time ago we were even married there!! Although we love Bath we felt that we have never really 'cracked' the accommodation side. We have stayed at the Bath Spa, Royal Crescent and the Bath Priory amongst others. Although all good hotels, they never quite made you feel 'comfy' and thought that there was always something missing!!

Through Tripadvisor we checked out the Queensberry and are so glad that we stayed for a night last night - our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We stayed in a junior suite (room 8) which was great! Spacious, well furnish and homely. It was a little expensive and we thought breakfast should have been included for the price(£295) a night - non-negotiable), but this is minor gripe. Staff were friendly and efficient. The Olive Tree was a great restaurant too. We will certainly be back especially as it was so well located and made you feel like a valued guest, rather than general punter that will be replaced tomorrow!

Disappointing

by TripAdvisor Member LEllis

Oh dear. This was our third trip to Bath. After reading reviews on this site I was looking forward to our stay at the Queensberry. I was told they were busy and that their smallest double room was all that was available. This didn't bother us as we wanted to eplore Bath and only needed to rest our weary heads after a full days walking. We were shown to room 3, what a dump! Small is an understatement. I'm convinced the bed was 3/4 not a full double. There were damp patches on the walls, the hem on the curtain badly needed mending and the shower room tiles were stained an unappealing shade of brown by water damage. After complaining to the staff we were moved to a larger, brighter room, (16) which was nice but I still felt the hotel was overpriced. The saving grace is the location and the drinks lounges which are very comfotable.The restaraunt tries very hard, but the food is not as sophisticated as the decor.

My advice is pay a bit extra and stay at the Priory or Bath Spa Hotel.

enjoyable stay

by A TripAdvisor Member

I've just spent the last 7 days at the Queensberry and enjoyed every minute of my stay there. the service was excellent. I loved the rooms, they are tastefully decorated and very clean. the food is mouthwatering and done to perfection.
the manageress was very kind and helpful, she helped to plan my days out in beautiful historic Bath. the rest of the staff were very friendly and kind too, nothing was too much trouble for them. RECOMMENDED

Is this really only a 3*??

by TripAdvisor Member jaje01

We stayed here in August - Initially I was a bit dubious - seemed rather pricey for a 3*. We got the 'standard' room they put in the brochure and it was absolutely lovely. Classic decor and very spacious. We ate in the restaurant - food was good though perhaps tried a little *too* hard. A very minor complaint though. The lounges are very comfortable with wi-fi. For the quality of the service and the room it was well worth it.

I'd certainly stay here again and was really shocked to read some of the other reviews - I guess not all the rooms have been updated. Perhaps best to check in advance??

Great Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member francissp

For 105 GBP this was a great hotel. The stairs (up down, up down) were unique. We were on top floor where rooms had lower ceiling. People over 6ft 1 watch your head thru the door.
Bathrooms-Spacious and Clean
Bedrooms-Spacious. King size bed comfortable.
Flat screen TV-plasma!
Good reception rooms with wi-fi.
10 minute easy walk to tourist sites, safe in the dark or during the day
Adjoining restaurant the Olive Tree was good

A Star in Bath's Crown!

by TripAdvisor Member MimsyBorrogrove

Our first time at this hotel for a one night stop over on our way to Cornwall. We had been a bit worried about a poor review on the site and spoke to Carly Crow at the hotel to check things out beforehand. Her reassurences proved to be accurate. The poor reveiw is clearly not typical of reviewers of this hotel. We found the hotel room really lovely and staff helpful and pleasant. It was only a one night stay so you can't get other than a 'snapshot' of your stay but we were very pleased with things in general. We had dinner in The Olive Tree restaurant and the food was truly wonderful as was the actual restaurant itself. Just a tiny 'niggle' that my chair backed onto the central clearing area for dishes/food going in and out of the restaurant so that was a bit annoying to be so close but staff did try to be unobtrusive. We would stay again and eat at The Olive Tree. One 'grumble' however was that the continental breakfast delivered to our room was very pricey at £18 in total and quite 'mean' with just one slice of toast each for 2 people and only one cold croissant! We are giving the hotel teh benefit of the doubt and beleive this may have been an oversight! We chose not to spoil a good stay and pleasant evening by questioning the price/content of breakfast.

Boxing at the "Queensbury Hotel".

by A TripAdvisor Member

A quick note, a play on words as we had some "fun " boxing , with inflatable gloves by way of a breakout session as part of a business meeting, whilst staying at The Queensbury Hotel.

I have just had a great week staying at the hotel, enjoying every aspect of the hotel, its great food and decor to the marvellous staff.

It is so nice to stay in a hotel where everyone on the staff seems to understand that it is in their interest to make their guests feel "at home". Laurence and his team deserve to be complimented on the friendly and efficient and caring way that they deal with there guests.

The quiet mannor in which things get done, at the right pace, is a skill that not too many seem to posses in our modern world.

The decor was of an extremely high standard, with clean lines, wonderful colours and great comfort without being fussy.
One of our party is determined to model rooms in their own home on the drawing room off the main lobby.

The standard of food served from breakfast to dinner is of the highest, and whilst I did overindulge I never felt as sinful as I should have done. I put this down to the quality and presentation of truly beautifully prepared food.

If you are staying in Bath, you will have improved the quality your stay by many fold by joining the other lucky people playing by the Queensbury Rules , ie relaxing in the nicest hotel in the area.

One of the best boutique hotels ever!

by A TripAdvisor Member

About 8 months ago we began our search for the ideal hotel. The criteria were a little different to the normal holidaymaker, as this time we were looking to exclusively book out a hotel, for 4 days, to host our event. Not just any event, the brave establishment that would take us would have to accommodate 40 teenaged girls too! After a massive trawl throughout the whole country, we came across the Queensberry Hotel in Bath. They promised us that the house would become our house and that we could adapt it and literally take over for the duration of the event. That was all fine on paper.

But the Queensberry delivered on this. We have just had the most successful of events, everything went so well and hat's off to the team at the Queensberry, they were tremendous, bending over backwards, going the extra mile & generally jumping to our neverending list of requests. I honestly don't know of another establishment that would have looked after us so well.

No only were we after a great level of service, but also a hotel that would be warm and welcoming for our audience of teenagers. We wanted them to relax and feel at home. The character and personality of the hotel was set by the very welcoming husband and wife duo Laurence & Helen Beere who spent time chatting with all the guests, and this friendly, relaxed spirit was naturally adapted by all the staff members. The decor of the hotel has been elegantly and stylishly restored, and each room is brimming with character. As for the restaurant - well Marc and his team in the kitchen won us all over.

Congratulations & thanks to the Queensberry, the event would not have been such a success without their input. We will be back.

Over-priced

by TripAdvisor Member jihyun

For a GBP160, you get a large king sized-bed room, and some 'old' bathroom windows that refuse to close. It was hard to ignore the draft coming in from the bathroom, especially when the boiler turns off sometime during the night. So be sure to close your bathroom door before you go to bed! Also "No HOT" water from the shower head meant doing all kinds of acrobatics to rinse yourself after a good soak. Instead of a CD player in the rooms, I wish they had some complimentary coffee/tea service instead. We went to bed early (10 pm)and folks coming in from a good night out woke us up going to their rooms using the staircase that most rooms face with their anecdotes and laughters. Didn't like the free valet parking outside either as you don't know where your car is going to be all night.
Additional info. I can give you about Bath is that 'Moody Goose' restaurant Frommers recommends is no longer there. 'Yum Yum Thai' close to the square where 'Moody Goose' was is pretty bad so don't go there! And the 'Peking' has a terrible smell.
