    While I don’t claim that England has a decent service culture, you couldn’t really do worse than Bath in terms of tourist accommodation – the tiny size of the place versus its massive popularity ensures that the quality has to be absurdly low before the captive market looks elsewhere.

    Want chips with that, love?

    I have found Bath particularly tricky for good Hotels. Too many pander to American ideals of traditional British and others are typically the quality your link mentions. I thought that the holiday in express was ok, although it was brand new when i stayed there. The rooms at Milsoms are very nice indeed but the location can be noisy at night. Do you have any suggestions about where is good to stay?

    Do not stay in any hotel, per se, because the British do not, generally, know how to do them. Instead, find yourself a well reviewed, cosy B&B. It won’t be a bargain, and some of the amenities might not be up your street, but you’ll feel less alienated than at places like the ghastly “4 star” (haha) Menzies Waterside Hotel, Bath.

    We stayed at The Francis … where the car stays in Bath is another matter altogether … people are easier to accomodate than cars in Bath.

    One does not bring a car to Bath. One takes the train.
