honeymoon night...

My fiance & I are getting married in June at Priston mill & are searching for a hotel to stay in for our 1st night.

We love the look of The Bath Lodge Hotel but before booking we were wondering if there are any other Hotels that anyone would recommend?

We're aiming to spend £100-120 per night but can spend more if it's worth it. Any suggestions will be gratefully received, thank you!

The tourist office in Bath seem to be going in for romantic breaks and suggestions with their 'love Bath' website http://visitbath.co.uk/lovebath/lovebath_home

It has a few different suggestions under 'where to stay'.

It isn't far to drive down to the Cathedral city of Wells (smallest city in England) and stay in the Ancient Gatehouse Hotel, which has a room in 'the Dean's Eye', one of the fifteenth century 'arched gatehouses' to the cathedral precinct... The hotel has a couple of beautiful, ornately carved, seventeenth century, four poster beds with canopy... one is in the room over the archway, which is accessed via a narrow winding stairway ! The bed had to be dismantled to get it up there. From that room the view is of Cathedral green and the magnificent West Front of Wells Cathedral, with over 300 medieval statues...

So you could spend the first day of your honeymoon visiting the little city of Wells... If you prefer to spend the first couple of nights in Bath, you could go on down to Wells later... there's also the Bishop's Palace, with a moat and springs...

There's also the White Hart, opposite the Ancient Gatehouse, which is quite picturesque and is one of Wells' earliest coaching inns (previously known as the Hart's Head).. dates back to before 1343... I don't know if it has any four poster beds, though. They both have good restaurants and websites... as do the Swan Hotel and other inns/hotels in the city... do a web search ! The photographs should help decide !

Congratulations on your wedding ! Nolana

Have a look at this one. it is a luxury hotel which has four posters. On the face of it the four posters may be outside of your price range but it may be that they could have some special offers...worth a try. it is right in the centre of bat and everything is walkable from here.

Have a wonderful day !!
