#25 of 36 hotels in Bath
Three miles from the centre of historic Bath, Combe Grove is a Grade II-listed manor house that stands in 76 acres of rolling woodland, within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The hotel enjoys outstanding views over the Limpley Stoke valley, out towards the Westbury White Horse, as well as a range of excellent health, fitness, and leisure facilities. The tranquil woodland setting gives guests the opportunity to combine a peaceful break in the countryside, with a city break to Bath. There is ample free parking on site, so guests may leave their cars behind and take a short open top bus ride from the top of the drive to explore the city. There’s plenty to do locally too, with country walks, boat trips and the American Museum very close by. At Combe Grove you will find space to breathe, relax, and unwind, with nine spacious, stylish rooms in the Manor House, or choose one of our 31 comfortable and contemporary rooms in the separate Garden Lodge, just a short walk down the drive. Whilst here you can take advantage of the hilltop fresh air and sleep with the windows open so that you can listen to birdsong. Guests can choose to play tennis, practice their swing on the driving range or join in a range of dynamic fitness classes including Les Mills’ BODYPUMP and BODYATTACK, Spin on our new Life Fitness IC5 bikes, or you may choose a more relaxing yoga or Pilates session in the studio. One-to-one sessions are available with personal trainers and yoga teachers too, just get in touch in advance of your stay to book. Why not follow a class with a leisurely swim in our Nordic-inspired indoor swimming pool, or even a dip in the heated outdoor swimming pool during summer*. Enjoy use of the sauna, steam room, and our gym too. Therapy appointments are available to have from the comfort of your hotel room when you stay in the Manor House or a Garden Balcony. Further treatments are available in the spa too. They are popular, so please get in touch to add these to your booking in advance of your stay. Breakfast is made to order in the elegant Orangery and we have a range of seasonal dining menus available throughout the day, all freshly prepared with love and care. Take tea on the terrace, supper in the Drawing Room, a feast in the Roman Room or a light bite in the bar – whatever works best for you to ensure maximum relaxation. *Specific swimming times are available for children who are accompanied by adults. Please ask about these in advance of your stay

The hotel itself was in a lovely setting, we booked direct after reading the benefits of doing this and was upgraded to a lovely room with beautiful views. We made use of the spa which was fine and the staff we came across were lovely like the Italian waiter in the restaurant

Hello juliageorgia3210, Thanks very much for the feedback here. It’s lovely to see that you, on the whole, enjoyed your complimentary upgrade, our leisure facilities and restaurant service and would like to return to stay with us one day. However, I am really sorry to see that you were disturbed by noise in your treatment and in your room (something which shouldn’t ever happen at our usually peaceful place) and that you felt our menus didn’t quite hit the mark. Please be assured that all your feedback here is being passed to the relevant teams. Yours sincerely, Andrea

Hello 483henry, Thank you for the feedback here. I’m really sorry to see that you were disappointed in any way with your room, which was refurbished in 2016. We are in the process of renovating many areas of the hotel, Coach House and grounds including major planting projects. Please be assured that your comments on paving weeding are being passed straight on to Combe Grove’s Landscape team. I’m pleased to see that you enjoyed our lovely pools and gym and do hope that other elements of your stay were enjoyable. Yours sincerely, Andrea

We were a bit sceptical about booking, having booked before reading the negative comments! Thank goodness we did. We arrived early, and were told we could use the amenities until our room was ready. We headed straight for the out door pool, which over looked the most beautiful

My husband booked this through booking.com as we were visiting our daughter at Bath Spa uni. It was convenient for the city and uni and there was plenty of parking. As we drove down the wild, wooded drive, it really has that Wow! factor. The man on reception gave us a tour of

Hello Suzanne C, Thanks very much for your feedback and please accept our sincere apologies that your stay did coincide with some renovations. I hope we have been clear enough at time of booking about the renovations - the price shared is a low season rate, reflecting the works, and, as you've kindly mentioned, we would strongly recommend to any onlookers, booking Woodland View rooms, to book direct with us for benefits that currently include a complimentary upgrade, depending on room availability. On boxed wine, I do appreciate that boxed wines haven't historically been known to be 'the best' but we can now source some very respectable, carefully selected 'bag-in-box' wines, reflecting our environmentally committed ethos, minimising environmental impact by up to 60% by using less packaging and maintaining the life cycle of the wines. It might also be worth clarifying for readers that we do have a list of bottled wines, majoring on some wonderful English vineyards. Hope you enjoyed it! I do hope we see you again one day at Combe Grove, Suzanne, and that you might be able to make the most of our beautiful pools, with their unique panoramic outlook. Yours sincerely, Andrea
