Hotels in Bath?

Post  Guest on Sat Jan 30, 2010 1:29 pm

Just wondering if anyone can recomend cheap hotels in Bath, for the Joy of Bonsai? Would be good if a few of us were staying at the same place, for some reflective late night drinks Very Happy

Alas, being poverty stricken means that I'm either going to have to make it a day trip, or convince the Moravian Bishop of Bath to put me up (she's a family friend, and no, she doesn't eat babies, before you ask!)

Hi,
In the past most have stayed in the exhibition hall in z-beds and sleeping bags over night.
Not sure if that is an option this time?

The first time I stayed upstairs in a Pub on Wells Road that was cheap and cheerful.

Last time I stayed overnight in an overpriced and very unfriendly B&B. Croissants and fruit for breakfast, at those prices, you've gotta be joking!

To add injury to insult, I couldn't stay for the exhibition as my daughter was rushed to hospital in Oxford with an appendix that was close to bursting. Cue 100mph drive from Bath to Oxford.

If the Z bed option isn't available, there's a youth hostel and a dormitory style backpackers place here http://www.hostels.co.uk/index.php?content=rates.htm at £12 to £19 apparently.

Cheap hotels in Bath!!, isn’t that an oxymoron? When we were there a couple of years ago the hotel prices equaled London…

Gman... ha .. it took a Yank to expose the fact that Hotels in Bath are WAY over priced... but its supply and demand.

Carolyn and I are booked into 'The Ayrlington' close to the venue that is costing £120 ($195) per night for the room. this includes breakfast but more importantly a car parking space. (car parking for 24 hours can be as much as £18.00 in the city) I can walk to the show in 4 minutes... Is it good value? I will tell you after the event.

Dear Tony,
Quote - "Gman... ha .. it took a Yank to expose the fact that Hotels in Bath are WAY over priced... but its supply and demand".
I'm not a "yank"....... I'm a CANUCK and just for the record.....born and raised in Storrington Sussex...then moved to “British” Columbia, Canada.
I think we paid the same kind of rate in May 07. Like I said a great city and great place for a pub crawl.......was also glad to see that small breweries are making a comeback......after that night I also now know why its called a "crawl".

As a Yank, I assure you, to half of America, being called a Yank isn't an insult. In defense of Robert E. Lee, them's fighting words! Me, although I currently reside in Illinois, I'm a Connecticut Yankee! ThumbsUp

For the sake of personal education... and for my ancestors who founded and settled the City of Quebec, I was under the understanding that a Canuck was a French Canadian. You are from Sussex (GB?) and reside in BC, would you be a Canuck.

Another Canadian question:

Africans are from Africa, Americans are from America, Scandinavians are from Scandinavia...

Shouldn't Canadians be from Canadia? Or, people from Canada be Canadans? thumbs up

Yeah. I thought that too. I blame all these home makeover shows on TV

But I'm just being smug because my accommodation for the event is all sorted.

Hi Will,
I'll be taking my caravan for a week, but if we are using a hotel we get one on laterooms.It also pays to find one just out of Bath and get the park and ride bus in, it's really expensive to park in town.

Pubs in Bath

Post  Tony on Fri Feb 05, 2010 7:38 am

Now you lot have got your beds sorted... now for refreshment... it looks like most of the boys will end up Here after they have eaten on Saturday night, its the closest 'Decent' Pub that does not serve beer at 'Bath Tourist' prices to the event.



That is unless any 'local' knows better?

The Royal Crescent Hotel is a half-decent place, by all accounts...

Hi Chris I have stayed at the Royal Crescent... it is a great hotel and has a Japanese Spa... but probably the most expensive hotel in the area. Rooms start at £240 per night not including breakfast. If you want luxury then this is the place. Shocked
