Our Royal name was to commemorate a visit by Queen Victoria. Another famous name associated with the establishment is Isambard Kingdom Brunel who built it. This most famous of British architects was renown for also building many Bristol building and of course the Clifton Suspension Bridge. We are very close to the railways station which he had much involvement with as well.
We were originally named The Royal Station Hotel. This was because at the time railways were the way to travel and we are near to the railway station in Bath. Having said that we are also very properly soundproofed. Hence you don't need to be worried about getting a good nights slumber. A footbridge ended up being built to link up platforms to the train station with the first floor of this fine establishment. The idea of this was to make Brunel's dream about travelling and staying as close to the travel link as was possible a reality, with little inconvenience. This footbridge was taken down in 1936. However it shows you how close we are to the station.
In the modern days we are now committed to making the hotel better for you with dedication to standards. Good food and well trained helpful staff are a small part of how we try to make your stay in Bath the best possible. A stay with us will be the perfect start to a historic trail that is what Bath is all about.
