Amazing Hotel

My cousin and I stayed here for 5 days, and we were very impressed by the décor, staff, food and room. We will definitely be back for a longer stay!

Great stay. Thank You

By some distance the best Shearing's hotel that we have visited. We paid a supplement to have a view over the city, and it was well worth it. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff - particularly those in reception and in the restaurant were very polite, and extremely efficient. The food was of a very high standard, as is the dining room. The basic menu was rather limited, but you can pay a little extra for more variety. Many thanks to Jane and her staff for a memorable stay.

Lovely Holiday

We stayed in this hotel with Shearings 5 day break the hotel staff and food were excellent, the rooms clean and comfortable. Would highly recommend this hotel. Our coach driver Neil was friendly and helpful. The only down side was the heat in the bedroom could have done with a fan, but it has been a lovely summer.

Had a lovely 5 day break at the Lansdown Grove. Hotel and staff were excellent and the food was first class, both in choice and quality and piping hot. This is the best Hotel that we have stayed in with Shearings in the UK. Our room (302) was a tad on the small side but had everything we needed

The Lansdown Grove is a wonderful hotel, with very friendly staff and food to die for. We have stayed in quite a few of the Shearings hotels and although the food is normally very good, this hotel is on a totally different level.

Great Hotel

Stayed last 3 nights in room 309. Fantastic views over Bath as room at the front. Plenty of hot water, brilliant shower and bath sheets not small thin bath towels. Staff very friendly and polite nothing too much trouble. Food superb both in choice and quality. Recommend to anyone. Ok hotel needs a little TLC but no one has an open ended cheque book!

Best staff in Bath

The staff of this hotel are magnificent. Friendly but professional, efficient and welcoming. The food was superb though I would have liked a little more choice, the hotel was great, warm and very clean. I am partially sighted so the only criticism I have is that the bar, reception and lounge were too dark. There was not enough lighting for me to see clearly let alone read and I had the same problem with bedside lighting. We are a forgotten minority as our disability is not obvious.

Best Holiday in a long time

The staff at Lansdown Grove were great. Nothing was too much trouble for them and there were no silly 'rules' in place. The food was very good, the choice excellent and the kitchen staff deserve a hearty thanks for contributing to a wonderful week. We cannot praise the staff as a whole too highly. The atmosphere created was one of total relaxation - someone else would do the worrying. Would thoroughly recommend it. Well done all at Lansdown. Bath is great too!

Pleasant and comfortable stay

I had a pleasant and comfortable stay here. The room was spacious and clean with an en suite bath /shower which were both warm and the laundry was of a high standard. The meals were excellent both in choice and quality and couldn't be faulted as were all the staff who were helpful, pleasant and went that extra mile. Would stay here again and recommend it to friends.

A Lovely Time

We had a lovely 5 day break at this hotel, our room was enormous and had a lovely 4 poster bed that was so comfortable. Breakfasts were very tasty and well presented and hot. There was 4 different choices each night for evening meal and it was so hard to choose as they all looked really appetising. I would like to thank Jane for organising our lovely room and the time of our evening meal it was so helpful to me and made the holiday all the more enjoyable. Thanks Frank for the footie chats.

A wonderful week

A welcoming hotel in a city with so much to discover. Super staff, good food, clean and comfortable. We have already decided to come back next year.

Excellent Hotel

We nearly always look for a Shearings Hotel as we know we can depend on service and cleanliness. The Lansdown Grove did not disappoint us. This was up to the usual standard we expect. The staff were very good and attentive, the room was spacious and clean. The food was excellent. Town centre a nice walk downhill with a bus every 15 mins back to right outside the door. What more can I say..... I look forward to my next mid-week break.

Still need help?
