This is a beautiful, small luxury hotel about 20 mins walk (or £8 taxi ride) from Bath centre in a quiet residential area of town along from the Royal Crescent. We stayed in Peony, a delightful smaller room overlooking the gardens on a B&B basis. Our stay was faultless from the completely flexible, "no problem" attitude of the staff when we arrived (tired and late for an appointment after a miserable journey) to the moment we checked out.
Breakfasts were excellent, very fresh fruit, first class hot dishes, lovely breads - can you get a Michelin star for breakfasts?? The garden is stunning and it would have been a real pleasure spending mornings in it reading the papers had we had time.
It is a fairly expensive hotel and the car park full of big new Mercedes and BMWs gives a guide to the clientele. However, it was a faultless and delightful stay and in my mind, worth the luxury price tag. Fully recommend for a special occasion.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled within four acres of mature award-winning gardens and spacious terraces, The Bath Priory sets itself apart as a peaceful haven in a bustling city. The Georgian house of honey-coloured Bath stone enjoys a tranquil location just a short walk through Royal Victoria Park to Bath’s city centre. The award-winning spa has a selection of luxurious treatments, an indoor pool, pool-side sauna, elliptical steam pod and shower. From the moment you enter The Garden Spa by L’OCCITANE, fragrances transport you to Provence; the escape begins with scent. Every gesture, every ingredient, every ritual is drawn from a page of the L’OCCITANE grand herbarium, a resource of hundreds of essential oils and natural ingredients. Steeped in Roman history, the city of Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Roman Baths, Pump Rooms and Theatre Royal are noteworthy highlights alongside the city’s architectural merits including the Royal Crescent and The Circus. ... more less
