The Experience

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.

The neighbourhood

Famed for its natural hot springs and 18th-century Georgian architecture, Bath is one of England's most appealing small cities. It’s usually busy with tourists and shoppers, especially around Christmas market time but there are plenty of green spaces to seek refuge.

Local points of interest from Chris Hardwicke

  • The Thermae Bath Spa is 10-minute stroll - enjoy views over the city from an open-air rooftop pool or a choice of experience rooms. Ask about their signature Watsu treatment.
  • Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths are nearby, with rich history to explore. We recommend the Above and Below tours at the baths.
  • The Holborne Museum, set in the Sydney Gardens - find bronze sculptures, silver, porcelain and Dutch landscapes, plus Sir William Holborne's library of 1800 periodicals.
  • For walkers: there's the 6-mile National Trust's Skyline Walk; stretches of the Cotswold Way; the Ghost Walks of Bath tour, taking you through the city; The Mayor's Guides, run by volunteers; and In the Footsteps of Jane Austen, an audio tour of Bath.
  • Hop aboard the Pulteney Princess and glide up the river to Bathampton, or enjoy a cream tea on the oldest electric river launch in existence, the Lady Lena. You can also hire a narrowboat for the day or have a go at rowing, punting and canoeing.
  • From late November to mid December, stay and enjoy the award-winning Bath Christmas Market.
