Elegant Bath is at your feet: spend a happy afternoon pottering about the reclamation yard, galleries and workshops in Walcot Street’s bustling artisan quarter; visit the Thermae Spa or catch an exhibition at the Holburne Museum. The hotel itself is just off Great Pulteney Street – Bath’s grandest postcode – flanked by classic Georgian buildings so you’ll feel nicely in the thick of things.
The formal exterior gives way to vibrant interiors: huge chandeliers, gilt mirrors, statement art, pops of colour. Settle down in a comfy armchair with the newspapers – the feel is relaxed and the staff look after you beautifully. Bedrooms come in all sizes, the largest has its own hot tub, the smallest is just that; all are individually styled.
Fill up at breakfast on seasonal fruit salad, pastries, juices, meat and cheeses or the full works. Book dinner when they are hosting a seasonal pop up restaurant, otherwise the city has tons of good places to eat out.
