A golden-stoned former priory at the edge of Bath’s city centre combines all the attributes of a typical English country house hotel – spacious rooms, luxuriant garden, indoor and outdoor heated pools and spa – with the attractions of the Georgian city just a stroll away. The decoration is pitch perfect: sitting rooms are filled with fresh flowers, comfortable sofas and the family’s art collection. Bedrooms, overlooking the landscaped gardens, are luxuriously romantic. The Premier Deluxe rooms have been smartly refurbished with fresh fabrics and contemporary styling, while six gorgeous suites occupy a converted house next door. For lunch and dinner there’s the principal dining room or the more casual Pantry, both overseen by much-lauded Michelin-starred executive chef Michael Nizzero. For serious relaxation there’s the L’Occitane Garden Spa (the only one in the UK). Run with professionalism, seamless service and real warmth, The Bath Priory is part of the excellent Brownsword Hotels stable.
