I have stayed at this hotel before so I knew what to expect. Room very clean and comfortable. I like the fact ther is an area in receptionb where you can make tea/coffee etc and the use of a microwave. You can also take teabags,coffee milk etc up to your room from there. Staff are very friendly and helpful. It's about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Bath. Would highly recommend this hotel. One very minor negative point is they need to get the toasters sorted. Going through once didn't toast enough and putting it through again it woukld burn.

I did not realise beforehand that there was no evening restaurant facility. This has been my experience at other Holiday Inns (e.g Nottingham, Edinburgh), and therefore was my expectation for this hotel.
The questionnaire has asked me about my "experience of dinner in the Great Room". I did not know beforehand that this facility existed. I directly asked about dinner in the hotel when we arrived during the early evening, and the concierge informed me that there was no evening restaurant at the hotel. I was informed about the choice of restaurants across the road.
The selection of foods for breakfast at the Bath hotel was less than I have experienced at other Holiday Inns - it did not even have a cereal breakfast that I liked, during my second morning. (As a comparison, I thought that the breakfast at the Edinburgh Holiday Inn was fantastic).
The (family) room at the Bath Holiday Inn was small and rather cramped - small bedroom with no space between the sofa bed and the wall and TV cupboard; small bathroom; no wardrobe. This room is far smaller than those that I have stayed in at Nottingham and Edinburgh, and had been marketed and priced as a similar room - a family room for 2 adults and 2 children.
The car park cost £10 per day to use, on top of the room price - do many visitors use the hotel without a car? However, on one evening I did not get to park in a proper parking space as the car park was full. I had to park in an access area next to the bin storage, which happened to have a lot of broken bottle glass on the floor. Luckily it didn't puncture the tyres.
In summary, I chose to stay at the Bath Holiday Inn based on my enjoyable stays at the Nottingham and Edinburgh hotels. Had my visit to the Bath Holiday Inn been my first experience of a Holiday Inn, I would not consider using Holiday Inn for future hotel accommodation.
