Bath: a historic hotel in the town centre
Having opened in springtime 2014, the magnificent Gainsborough Bath Spa hotel – member of the Leading Hotels of the World group – has taken over 3 historic homes built in 1800! Perfectly located in the heart of the town and just 100m from the legendary Roman baths that solidified the town’s reputation, it boasts 99 bedrooms and suites. The latter sport a cosy décor with elegant shades of pastel and taupe, whilst benefitting from very high windows. In the Gainsborough restaurant, with its designer décor and high tables, we love the contemporary no-nonsense cuisine and admire works by artists who have studied at the Bath School of art and design. The spa spans two floors, comprising of 11 treatment rooms including a double, 2 ‘tatami’ rooms dedicated to Oriental-inspired therapies. A. F.-M.
