Cute little inn”

I enjoyed my stay at the Griffin Inn. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was lovely with a choice of 4 hot dishes in addition to the cold buffet. A nice change to have a bit of variety instead of the traditional English breakfast all the time. The only thing that was a bit disorienting was the sloping floor of my room; it made my head spin a bit.

Perfect spot!”

The Griffin Inn was absolutely adorable. I felt so at home in my cozy single room. The location was very central making it easy to walk everywhere. I especially appreciated the activity recommendations in the room. I discovered things I didn't even know I wanted to do! I would absolutely stay here again.

Beautiful room, lovely staff”

Good location, only two streets from the main shopping area. Lovely room, though some elderly or disabled guests may find the narrow stairs tricky. Very friendly staff and good, well cooked breakfasts (I'm always amazed how some really expensive hotels can't employ chefs who can cook eggs properly; at The Griffin, they were spot-on every time). Would recommend to friends and would stay again.

The staff, the location and the room size for a single bedroom

This was a great place to stay in Bath, right in the middle of all the attractions I wanted to visit. The staff were welcoming, helpful and very friendly. Great breakfast and you can also have lunch or an evening drink here too. The building has an old charm to it, as does the city. I will definitely stay here again.

Staff Performance, Room Comfort, Food

I've arrived very late for check-in, made the right decision to ring the Inn beforehand. Met a staff waiting for me at the Inn with a short and quick introduction to the Inn. The room condition was excellent but considering the size of the room, the value for money was not there. The shower drain was badly blocked on the first night but eventually fixed the night after when I left the staff a note. A complimentary drink was offered. The location is perfect for a sightseeing trip in Bath.

Fantastic place!”

A hidden gem, we booked into here on advice from a colleague and we definitely do not regret it! The most amazing welcoming place with gorgeous rooms and fantastic staff - we had three rooms and all slept like babies. Tanya and Leah could not do enough for us and treated three strangers like long lost friends rather than hotel guests. Greatly appreciated after a long hard day of travel and work - if I’m ever back in Bath I’ll certainly be returning! Thank you ladies

Location excellent”

The staff here is really nice and personable. The location was everything, close to every attraction in Bath and very walkable. Breakfast included was ok but very basic, breads, cheese, ham, cereals, yogurt etc. It’s also a bit noisy until 11 or so as it’s a bar on the first floor, though that didn’t really bother us. Would stay again as the price was right and location was good.

Slightly quirky old inn. Comfortable room, well equipped en suite and friendly staff. Let down by room not being serviced on second day of stay and very sparse buffet breakfast, one day this consisted of cereal and slightly dry brioche. No dinner available Mon/Tues. No parking so best to use park and ride for your stay. On the whole would recommend though; lovely inn and good ales. Good value for money.

Mixed Experience”

I really wanted to be able to give this place a good review, as I liked the vibe and decor from the get-go, and the staff was friendly overall. However, half of the night we were kept awake by what sounded like a small orgy taking place next door (the walls were thin and the people were very loud). This began at about 2:00 in the morning, and eventually everyone in the room left. At around 5:00 A.M. a woman and her friend returned to the room next door, loudly talking and laughing about what had taken place hours prior. I also heard lots of noise from what sounded like people getting ready downstairs around 7:00 or 7:30 A.M. Despite the things that we did like about the place, this experience was enough to prevent us from returning. If you want to ensure a good night's sleep, I recommend looking elsewhere, as the walls in this place (at least in our room) were very thin.
