Location
  • Some may consider the distance to Bath’s town centre a drawback but we rather think this adds to the warm exclusive ambience The Bath Priory exudes.

    Styled very much with country comfort in mind, the interiors are traditionally shaped with softly upholstered antique furniture, floral patterns and few stately touches to remind you this is no ordinary hotel.

    The 27 bedrooms, each unique and named a after a flower, carry on the legacy of the public quarters but in more of a streamlined way. However, your super-comfy bed dressed in crisp linen isn’t the only form of indulgence here. The Bath Priory houses a heated outdoor pool as well as a poolside spa with all the trimmings of steam room, sauna, and treatments.

    Good to Know

    Aside its excellent services and spa, the Priory has also established a reputation for out of the world dining experience delivered by a Michelin starred chef.
    And the gardens, fit for an after dinner walk, have been designed for your pleasure by a Chelsea Flower Show medal winner.

  • Accommodation

    33 bedrooms – Classic, Superior, Deluxe, Premium, Junior Suite, Suite, and Royal, Cavendish, and Lansdown Master Suite.

    Top rooms – Heather and Lilac (balconies), Carnation and Bluebell (four-poster beds), Moringa, Orchid, and Peony (exotic).

    Eat & Drink

    The Priory a Michelin-starred chef to oversee what arrives on your table. You’ll make your choice from a Modern European menu while seated in the traditional dining room.

    No bar as such but waiters will serve drinks in the drawing rooms, library or on the terrace.

    Activities

    Start and end your day with a swim in the indoor or outdoor pool.

    For something more intense, try the Fitness Suite overlooking the gardens. Its full range of cardiovascular machines and free weights should help you to burn off a few calories.

    Relaxation

    The spa is the highlight of the hotel. Equipped with indoor and outdoor heated pools, pool-side sauna, elliptical steam pod and shower, this oasis starts indoor spilling into the immaculate gardens of the hotel.
