    Good cheap-ish hotel in Bath?

    Looking for a short weekend break in early Jan, anyone recommend a good place to stay (as in hotel and breakfast only, basically a place to sleep!)???

    You would be lucky to find anything in Bath at a weekend cheap.

    How about some of the villages outside of the city?

    We stayed at the Wentworth hotel about 2 1/2 years ago. I highly advise you to avoid it. The room was tatty, the owner had his own party in the (small) bar so if we'd wanted a drink we'd have been gatecrashing... reading a few comments online it seems things are still the same.....

    Thought you said 'Cheap'

    What are you doing there? Without being too personal.

    You can get a great meal at The George in Bathampton, a couple of miles outside the city.

    Well, I want to get away for a quiet weekend with the missus, always wanted to go to Bath and have a look round. I want to be in the centre of the city so that I don't have to drive/park/pay for the trouble, I have found ones further out that are around 90 but are like 12miles out.

    Thanks for the recommendation, I'll look The George up!

    It's a really nice place. Royal Crescent area is good. No.1 is a museum. There is an oriental museum, also good. The Spa is a must visit. Some good shopping. You need a weekend.

    Also the American Museum at Claverton.

    There are also some National Trust places, Dyrham, Prior Park (no parking but you can get a bus to the door)

    I'm off to the Spa Tomorrow :-) with a residents discount.

    24 each for a two hour session.

    If you are willing to stay out of the centre I can tell you that there is now plenty of parking, and the routes in are never that congested (20 minute trip from Midsomer Norton).

    There are plenty of B&B's in the surrounding villages.

    Norton Radstock... know it well. How's Radco.

    Spent an age at the racecourse waiting for a P&R bus that never came the other week. So missed the Xmas market. Won't put me off Bath though.

    Edit: Would always recommend The Hollies in Pensford (for the Aker Bilk fans). Really nice people running the B&B.

    Used to date someone from Radstock about 10 years ago.

    I dated many a lady from Radstock, and having lived in the area for most of my life decided it was best to look a lot further afield :-). My partner is a lovely Irish lady!

    Sadly I will probably know who you are talking about!

    Without saying too much, she very had long black hair and half Chinese. I have now gone overseas, Wales, well, over river anyway. Holistic therapist and actress/producer. Her double was on BBC last night in the Accidental Farmer (not Lynda baron )
