Bath, a city well known for its elegance, charm and culture, home of the distinguished golden coloured stone buildings, magnificent architecture and sophisticated hotels.
The Gainsborough Bath Spa, one of the most prestigious hotels, located in the heart of the city, is a must for all visiting. Situated in the historic spa quarter, directly opposite the world-renowned Thermae Spa, the location couldn’t be better. Only a stone’s throw away from the main attractions including the ancient Roman Baths and the imposing Abbey, this hotel really does tick all the boxes.
From the moment you enter reception, the elegance and grace of the hotel becomes apparent. The decor is modern yet classic and the staff portray total professionalism and competence.
Featuring multiple dining areas, including the Canvas Room, the Gainsborough Bar and the restaurant, named after their Michelin star chef, Johann Lafer, each one offering a different vibe, one won’t be stuck for choice. The Canvas Room is peaceful and relaxing, and the perfect setting to enjoy an afternoon tea, or a drink from their extensive menu. The bar has a slightly more chic and stylish atmosphere, offering an impressive range of cocktails, wines and champagnes.
Their accommodation is as equally impressive. The rooms potentially accommodate the most inviting beds , a flatscreen TV, a Nespresso machine, and incredible views of the Abbey and Thermae Spa. In addition to the classic room, there is also a choice of 5 suites and 3 other room types, thus guaranteeing that there is something for all tastes.
Despite every single detail of the hotel being faultless, for me, the spa is what gives it that unique touch that differentiates the hotel from others located within the city. The Spa Village within the hotel is the only one in the country to feature a thermal bath, of which it has three. It also has saunas, both traditional and infrared, a steam room, an ice room, leisure areas surrounding the pool, along with spiced hot chocolate on tap. The spa offers access strictly to hotel guests and spa members, ensuring that it maintains its exclusiveness and tranquillity.
If you’re looking for the perfect stay in Bath, The Gainsborough Bath Spa truly is the one for you; it’s elegant, classic and undoubtedly the most extraordinary hotel within the city.
