The Experience

“No stilts, pogo sticks, space hoppers, flaming torches or whips in the bar.” Such are the rules of the house, a nod in deference to the 9th Marquis of Queensberry, whose family built this street, and who wrote the rules of boxing in 1865. As for the hotel, it occupies four gleaming Georgian townhouses on a grand old street around the corner from Royal Crescent. It’s an extremely comfortable base, with an elegant sitting room, a snazzy bar, a beautiful courtyard garden and some of the best food in town. Potter about and find fresh flowers, contemporary art, the daily papers, kind staff on hand to help. Bedrooms come in different sizes, but all are full of their own delights: Vi Spring mattresses, stylish fabrics, bold colours, flat-screen TVs. Smaller rooms overlooking the garden are lovely – size doesn’t matter here – though one of the suites does come with a chaise longue in its super-stylish bathroom. Chris Cleghorn’s delicious food waits below, perhaps langoustine tail with cheddar gnocchi and basil or anjou pigeon with celeriac, shallots and hazelnuts.

A superb hotel and we had a gorgeous room. The Olive Tree Restaurant was memorable.

Amy, Somerset

This is a stunning hotel, ideal for a special occasion or romantic break - perfectly placed to get to the centre but still tucked away from the crowds. It's beautifully decorated, and full of interesting artwork and objects. Everyone was incredibly friendly and we had an absolutely lovely stay.

Nica, Bristol

Three things to bear in mind here. First is the hotel itself: our room (no. 14) was lovely with an enormous bathroom and two sinks, which was a nice touch. Also there was a Nespresso machine right outside our door. The food -- we only ate at the bar (fish piece was scrumptious) and in the restaurant for breakfast -- was superb. The staff were incredibly friendly and always willing and available to be helpful and of assistance. Second is the location. It's a ten-minute walk from the Roman Baths and close to the Circus and the Royal Crescent. We would certainly go back.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Laurence & Helen Beere

  • A short walk from us are The Roman Baths complex which is a site of historical interest in the centre. The house is a well-preserved Roman site for public bathing. The museum has unique artefacts only seen here. Their afternoon teas come highly recommended
  • The Hotel is in a quiet residential area only 2 minutes walk to some of the finest Georgian Architecture in the form of The Royal Crescent and The Circus. No1 Royal Crescent offers a fascinating insight into the period history of the Georgian household.
  • The Holburne Museum is located in Sydney Gardens, and was Bath's first public art gallery. It is home to fine and decorative arts collection built around the collection of Sir William Holburne. The Kennet & Avon canal runs through the gardens.
  • The American Museum takes you on a journey through the history of America, from its early settlers to the twentieth century. With its remarkable collection of folk and decorative arts, the Museum shows the diverse and complex nature of American traditions
  • Prior Park Landscape Garden to the south of Bath, was designed in the 18th century by the poet Alexander Pope and the famous landscape gardener Capability Brown, and is now owned by the National Trust. Offers beautiful walks and views of the City.
  • The Bath Assembly Rooms, situated at the end of the road from us, designed by John Wood, in 1769, as a set of elegant assembly rooms is open to the public. You will find a large collection of Art as well as the famous Fashion Museum
