- Places to stay in Bath
Looking at a couple of days away with the missus to escape the kids. Any suggestions for somewhere half decent within walking distance of the centre?
Either hotel or flat (although probably only 1 night so unlikely to get a flat). Not worried about lots of facilities.Posted 4 years ago
Bath itself is pretty small, and I think there’s a number of hotels in the centre, the Francis Hotel on Queen’s Square is the first that comes to mind, as a friend of mine worked there for some years. It’s within a shortish walk of the Circus and Royal Crescent, and the main shopping streets.Posted 4 years ago
But then, most of Bath is… 😉
I can’t vouch for quality, but there’s a bunch here:
Skyline walk in Bath (National Trust) is signposted, and gives great views of the city. Bath itself is expensive for food and accommodation and if you don’t need to be in the city centre, there are some great pubs, B&B’s, smaller hotels on the outskirts. Vobster Inn is good food and nice rooms, the Moody Goose is not bad, there is a best western out by the Uni which is good value.Posted 4 years ago
Out by the Uni isn’t a short walk into the centre, though; I know because I’ve walked from the Uni down to the centre, and it takes at least half an hour, probably longer, unless you catch a bus. Somewhere out on the edge of Victoria Park, Julian Road, or thereabouts is close enough to walk easily, and you get to see nice parts of Bath as well.Posted 4 years ago
Without knowing a budget, it’s a bit tricky to make suggestions, but this place is from £80/night: http://www.booking.com/hotel/gb/hill-house.en-gb.html?aid=303948;label=bath-Mnvg99fIbZo4ir0fHtg13QS12581577861%3Apl%3Ata%3Ap1125%3Ap2%3Aac%3Aap1t1%3Aneg;sid=228298470aca35049edbe38ad0419f1c;dcid=1
and seems to be well rated. I know it from when it was a bar/restaurant, and it’s an easy walk down Lansdown into the city.
This place is a bit further up the hill, and starts at £70: http://www.booking.com/hotel/gb/lansdown-grove.en-gb.html?aid=303948;label=bath-Mnvg99fIbZo4ir0fHtg13QS12581577861%3Apl%3Ata%3Ap1125%3Ap2%3Aac%3Aap1t1%3Aneg;sid=228298470aca35049edbe38ad0419f1c;dcid=1ARTSubscriber
You have not mentioned budget.
But seriously why go and stay in a big ‘chain’ faceless hotel when there are lots of lovely little places that you could treat the wife to Bath is small and very walkable so anywhere roughly central will have you in striking distance of shops/ places to eat/ cinema/ spa etc…Posted 4 years agoDefenderMember
I stayed at the Waterside Travelodge last September for two nights, 5 minutes from the Spa station and right on the canal basin, not the most glamorous place to stay granted, but very clean and comfortable with a restaurant has a good choice for breakfast and evening meals as well as a bar.Posted 4 years ago
I’ll be going back there this September for another weekend.ARTSubscriber
Make some suggestions then!
I know, I grew up there and now live just outside.
Which is why I suggested Hill House and Lansdown Grove…
Indeed … you didn’t suggest the Hilton 😉
Cheers all. Have gone for the Paradise House from Arts list which looks spot on – not far out, boutiquey look and above all fairly cheap.
Nice, enjoy 🙂Posted 4 years ago
