More about Wentworth House
Everything we expected
Sandra - Wentworth House, Bath - Fantastic
18 - 21 May 2007
We stayed at the Wentworth House for a long weekend, and everything was as described, the staff were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. After a hard days sightseeing we returned to the hotel to sit for an hour in the hot tub with a class of wine and beautiful views looking down on Bath. I would most certainly stay here again and would highly recommend it.
No children allowed here, so peaceful and relaxing with stunning views
A Shambles. Ruined our trip to Bath.... stay clear
Firstly it is cold. After having to wait 20 minutes in the bar we finally got given the key to our room. The room we had was in dire need of a refurbishment. It wouldn't have been half as bad if it hadn't had stained sheets!!!!! We enquired to have another room but where told "all the rooms are pretty much the same"
The bar is dark with no life, it was dusty and a vase of dead flowers. Plus the bar prices are not going to want you to have more than one drink.
Moving onto the restaurant, then move right past it. It would be great if you like Indian food. Then again they do try to pursued you to eat down the road as they dont have a proper chef!!!!
Not a great time all in all, Bath is wonderful and we stayed out as late as possible as we didnt want to go back to that grotty hole.
The worse hotel EVER!!!
This was the worst vaule for money hotel I have ever stayed in, I think Faulty Towers is bigging it up.
Thanks god we only had one night. The room was last decorated in the 70's, the cleanliness left alot to be desired.
We didn't even stay for breakfast as didn't want to risk food poisoning before a 3 hour journey home.
Please avoid this place.
Stay well away
It was a nightmare, overpriced, decor out of seventies.
Table service diabolical, the worse hotel I have ever stayed at!!
The owner walks around in his slippers!!!
Springs of bed dug into my ribs!
Telly in bedroom did not work.
Fawlty Towers but pricier!
Tiny rooms, even tinier bathroom... dubious lock on door.
Tiny breakfast with approximately four baked beans. Could hear everything that went on in the room above.
Completely over priced for what it was... don't bother!
disgusting!! Stay Away
My Partner and I stayed at Wentworth House hoping for a relaxing couple of days....What a Joke!! The place is awful, dirty, and the food leaves alot to be desired!!
The only good thing about this place is that its in Bath...even then its a long walk on the main road into town..
The whole hotel needs updating and a good clean.
Don't even think about going!
This place is BEYOND a joke- Throughout my stay I've had bad service, my room was old, smelly, you can hear everything in the next room, out of date, decor has a lot to be desired for. The food was very poor and ungenerous...it made my stay more stressful when it was meant to be the opposite. The hill walking from Bath town centre was long and tiring. Anybody who is thinking of staying here....DON'T!!! you can get a perfectly luxurious room with the prices these people are charging!
Revolting!! DO NOT stay here!!!!.
We stayed at Wentworth House for 1 night in August 2007, and it is far and away the worst experience we've ever had!!! We booked 2 rooms and both were awful. Specific problems were as follows;
The rooms smelt and felt damp, the bed linen and covers were very damp, there was no remote so we could not operate TV, Curtains were partially off the rail so could not be closed properly, towell rail fell off the wall at the slightest bump, shower door was falling off, handbasin tap would not turn off water properly (so trickled all night long), the pull cord for the bathroom light was caked in what must be years of grease, bedside lamps did not work, faeces caked on the toilet brush, our room was directly under reception and close to the stairs so we were woken early by all the foot traffic through reception and to the dining room, the spa pool water smelt really bad - like it should have been replaced long ago. We did not brave breakfast but found it downright misleading that the 'breakfast included rate' is 7 pounds per person, and the 'breakfast not included rate' is 9 pounds per person - this is absurd, surely 'breakfast included' means exactly that with no extra charge?!
My husband raised these issues with the only staff member present, who was new and very apologetic. She came to look at our room with the chef who attempted to push his way into the bathroom despite my husband telling him my daughter and I were showering!! Apparently there was no one available at the hotel, or by phone who had any authority to do anything for us. We requested that the owner call us to discuss the issues and a partial refund - that was over 2 weeks ago and we have not heard from him. I wish I had read other reviews here before staying... and hopefully can save others some grief!!
Good for a romantic break, but be careful about the thin walls!
We visited this hotel as two friends in a twin room. We were pleased with the location, the beautiful views and the excellent service from staff.
Unfortunately our twin room was located on the top floor between two suites which had been booked out for romantic champagne breaks. This meant that through the very thin walls we had a particularly good acoustic account of the stay of the fortunate amorous couples in the adjoining rooms! This was not necessarily a problem but a bit of an embarassment all round and led to a few blushes and avoidance of eye contact at breakfast! We also had a private bathroom for our room which was located across the corridor, adding a slightly farcical element of scurrying between the rooms, trying not to disturb the neighbours...
The pool was a free facility but the hot tub was an additional cost of £6 per hour per person which seemed a bit steep. Also steep was the hill leading from the town to the hotel - anyone with mobility problems would simply not make the climb. However if you are happy to do the walk it does reap rewards in the form of beautiful views over the city. And there are local grocery shops and pubs at the top of the hill so you are not forced to make trips into town. The hotel is on a direct frequent bus route, and a taxi costs around £5 each way to the centre.
The staff were very helpful but we were only given one towel and the only soap in the bathroom was a congealed handsoap which had separated and was probably dirtier than anything we might want to clean.
Breakfast was good and we had a pleasant and somewhat amusing stay! But I'd say this is a guest house for couples rather than friends. Overall we enjoyed our visit, but next time we go to Bath we are not intending to repeat it...
Shame about the bedbugs!
The hotel was grubby, there were bedbugs in at least one room! The staff were friendly but inept and when I came to pay the bill it was a few hundred pounds too much! Sundries of £500!
On the plus side the pool was wonderfully warm and the views over Bath spectacular. It was a short walk (though steep) right into the city.
