I stayed at Three Abbey Green when I took my mum to the newly-opened Spa. Loved Three Abbey Green so much I am staying again next month - a Spa treat for a girlfriend's 50th - and will be back in the new year with my husband. (So, OK, there is a midweek special running from November to February - two nights + third night half price - my old man already knows I am cheap!!!) Everything about the place - from book baskets in the bedrooms full of stuff you meant to read but never had, to beautiful decor (e.g. gorgeous ice grey carpets) to some lovely pieces of furniture - was brilliant. Being a 3 min walk from the Spa was also good news - Three Abbey Green really central: point your nose out of your window at night and there is Bath Abbey lit up. . . However, having said all this - and actually I should have said much more because the place is seriously good news - I have to admit the biggest part of Three Abbey Green's appeal was the family: Sue, Derek and daughter Nici. Sue is a mini-tornado of perfection; Nici a mini-Sue; Derek (ex. company director) as happy to discuss share prices as he is the best restaurants in town; while grandson Finlay sticks with the day job . . . he has just started nursery school! Sue and Derek are a sort-of up-market Sybil and Basil Fawlty - the difference being they are truly international in outlook and Three Abbey Green is definitely NOT Fawlty Towers! Finally, a word about mini-Sue, Nici. Think funny intelligent blond - and then consider while she's chatting away at breakfast as if she hasn't a care in the world, her husband is serving in Kandahar. As one of Three Abbey Green's guests - a Texan businessman - said to me (under beautiful tree outside while he had a cigar: Three Abbey Green is non-smoking) - 'You couldn't make it up'. You can't. Try the place out for yourself. It's brilliant. You will not be disappointed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Three Abbey Green is a Four Star Gold Award guest house, hidden away in a quiet cobbled square in the heart of central Bath. A stone's throw from the Abbey and Roman Baths, everything you could wish to see is on your doorstep. A leisurely walk to the Royal Crescent and King's Circus takes in an eclectic mix of boutique, independent and big-name shops, street performers and stunning Georgian architecture along the way. And when you get there, don't forget to visit the Assembly Rooms - ladies, no visit would be complete without trying on a corset and crinoline at the Fashion Museum. Whether you're here to relax at the Thermae Bath Spa, take in a little culture at the Theatre Royal, or shout yourself hoarse in support of your team at the Bath Rugby ground, Three Abbey Green is ideally situated for everything Bath has to offer.A Grade 2 listed building, parts of which date back to 1689, the main house has seven rooms (including two large suites ideal for families or groups), each with its own character and unique charm.
