Abbey Hotel

Bath, Bath & N.E. Somerset

The sitting room doubles as an art gallery, Jay Rayner loved the food, Pulteney Bridge is across the road - a great Bath hotel


62 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 - 4


You’re in the epicentre of Bath, just behind the abbey, in one of the prettiest quarters in town. Parade Gardens waits across the road, the river Avon pours over the weir at Pulteney Bridge, Bath rugby club stands on the far bank. As for the hotel, in summer you take to the terrace café for coffee and watch the world go by; in winter it turns into an après-ski bar for mince pies and mulled wine. Inside, the sitting room doubles as a contemporary art gallery, while wine glasses hang from the ceiling in the bar. There’s lovely food in the restaurant, perhaps flame-grilled mackerel, slow-roasted venison, vanilla panna cotta with rhubarb sorbet; a pre-theatre menu is available from 5.30pm. Smart rooms upstairs have comfy beds, woollen throws and colourful headboards. Some are small, others big, all have iPads for room service, while most have stylish new bathrooms (ask for a room with one of these). Bath waits on your doorstep: rugby at the Rec, the Christmas market, the Roman Baths, Victoria Art gallery, all things thespian and plenty of Jane Austen. You’re close to the station, too, so leave your car at home.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Abbey Hotel! We were warmly welcomed having arrived past the apres-ski bar which was in full flow with people wrapped up warm and huddled over mulled wine. We felt well looked after and breakfast was a delicious feast. Perfectly situated to stroll into Bath in the morning - or for dinner in the evening. Many thanks!
