The Experience

This is a comfortable and friendly boutique-style hotel in the middle of town but hidden away on a quiet side street overlooking Henrietta Park – seven acres of green space opened to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee; perfect to give the kids or dogs a run around. 

Stroll for five minutes to magnificent Pulteney Bridge; the station isn’t much further. You can hire bikes in town, then follow a towpath along the canal out into the country. Bath will keep you busy: soak up the elegant architecture, relax at the thermae spa, eat, shop… Don’t miss the Roman Baths or the Fashion Museum.

Back home, there’s tea and cake on arrival, buck’s fizz for breakfast. Breakfast – served in an airy dining room – is excellent: smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, buttermilk pancakes, the full cooked works. Bread is baked overnight by the in-house baker who also makes cakes and scones for an indulgent afternoon tea. Ensconce yourself in Henrietta’s Bar – a cool space with expert mixologists shaking and stirring your favourite tipple, or something new, alongside a menu of light dishes.

This is a wonderful place to spend a weekend in Bath. It's just a 10-minute walk from the centre, but in a peaceful, secluded spot away from the hustle and bustle. The staff were super welcoming and friendly, and we treated ourselves to an afternoon tea, which was delicious!

Nica, Weston-super-Mare

We had an amazing weekend at The Roseate Villa; it felt warm and welcoming with cosy and comfortable interiors, friendly staff, lovely food and a great location. It was fantastic being located just opposite Henrietta Park and minutes walk from the centre of Bath. We've stayed here a few times now and I'm sure we'll be back again.

Gabrielle, Bristol

My friend from Australia and I stayed at Roseate Villa for 2 nights. It was a lovely hotel in a very convenient location to be able to walk to all the local sights in Bath. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and the room was lovely with all comforts provided. We had delicious breakfasts, with lots of choice, fresh produce and home made jams, all served in a beautiful sunny room with smiles.

Mary, Eastbourne

Such a joy to be in Roseate Villa, an elegant little oasis in the heart of historic Bath. Caroline welcomes guests warmly, her team is sunny and the hotel is supremely dog-friendly. A night baker (in place of a night porter) works through the small hours so that guests wake to the wonderful scent of freshly baked bread for breakfast - then cakes, scones and fresh bread sandwiches for a splendid afternoon tea. Rooms are individually designed with huge headboards and lots of light, fridges and gifts of shortbread baked onsite. You're a short walk from the centre but you'd never know it. Bliss.

Sarah, Sawday's inspector

Absolutely brilliant place. Introduction started with a warm welcome and finished with one of the best breakfasts (and matching service!) we've had a chance to enjoy. Location in Bath makes a definite winner. Thank you!


Marvelous Villa Magdala - stylish, very comfortable and friendly 5* boutique B&B. Lots of small elegant touches and owner's attention to detail that make for a very comfortable and satisfying stay. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for in Bath. We'll be back (very soon)!

The neighbourhood

The exquisite Georgian architecture is a big draw but you’ll also find an excellent theatre, several galleries, a swish spa, Roman Baths, good independent shops and restaurants. Come by train and arrive into Bath Spa station – just a short walk from the hotel.

Caroline is the warmest of hosts and runs a happy ship. She hails from Bath, has worked in hospitality for years and has a knack for making her staff happy which means they stay. Guests love to see the same team each time they visit. You'll often meet Caroline's border terrier, Mutley, who is a friendly fixture at the hotel too.
