Experience Bath’s elegant independently-owned Abbey Hotel, situated in the heart of the UK’s favourite spa-break destination, with unforgettable views that extend out over the enchanting sights of the historic city centre. Owners Ian and Christa Taylor invite you to enjoy a memorable stay at the 62-bedroom hotel, formed of three connected Georgian townhouses with art at the heart of their colourful and stylish contemporary décor.

Treat yourself to some culinary indulgence in the ambient Allium, with its rich pink walls, rustic gold drapes and a vibrant art collection. Allium’s head chef, Rupert Taylor, has 20 years’ experience, with an impressive culinary career rooted in Bath, and a Michelin background. Rupert has developed a distinctive style with a focus on simple food with brilliant flavours, using quality local and seasonal ingredients. Our wine list has been very carefully crafted to offer a wide selection of wines that suit the menu but also offer the opportunity to discover little known gems which are rarely seen on other restaurant lists outside London.

Every year, between April and September, the team at the Abbey Hotel transform part of Bath’s North Parade into a fabulous outdoor terrace complete with Mediterranean olive trees, vibrant wildflowers, comfy armchairs, heat lamps and flickering candles, all set against the backdrop of buttery Georgian stone.

The hotel’s ArtBar extends a warm welcome to all guests, with a wide selection of bespoke flavours and timeless favourites. A talented team of mixologists are on hand to deliver a time-tested drinks menu of cocktails, coffees and bar bites, perfect for some early-evening temptation.

After the activities of the day are done, modern, peaceful and cosy bedrooms await you with luxury cashmere beds that are anything but ordinary. Our little extras go a long way, with guest service iPads, REN luxury amenities and super-fast free WIFI to keep you connected as you plan your next adventure. Families can keep young travellers happy with a spacious bespoke family room, nestled in the Georgian rooftops.
