The Roseate Villa, Bath

Bath, Bath & N.E. Somerset

A swish hotel with lovely rooms and excellent breakfasts set on a peaceful side street, a 5-minute stroll from the centre of town


21 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


The Villa is one of those lovely boutique hotels that scores top marks across the board. You’re pretty much in the middle of town, but hidden away on a quiet side street opposite a pretty park. Then, there’s a batch of smart bedrooms, which have style and comfort in equal measure. Add to this lovely staff on hand to book restaurants, balloon flights or day trips to Stonehenge and you have a perfect base. You’re a five-minute stroll from magnificent Pulteney Bridge; the station isn’t much further, so leave your car at home. You can hire bikes in town, then follow a towpath along the canal out into the country. Back home, there’s tea and cake on arrival, buck’s fizz for breakfast, even bats and balls for children who want to go to the park. Breakfast – served in an airy dining room – is excellent: smoked salmon and free-range scrambled eggs, buttermilk pancakes, the full cooked works. Rooms vary in size, but all have excellent beds, pretty wallpaper and sparkling bathrooms. Good restaurants wait close by. Don’t miss the Roman Baths or the Fashion Museum. There’s off-street parking, too, a real boon.

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.

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)!
