The Bath PrioryWe at Five Star Alliance work tirelessly to ensure we bring you the best luxury hotels selection and information regarding amenities, location, and highlights so you are confident that the hotel you choose will exceed your expectations and serve your needs. Sometimes, however, you are left with a few questions that go unanswered, and that’s why we’re here. Be sure to explore our new blog series “Your Questions Answered” to find answers to real questions submitted to us by our clients regarding traveling with kids, pets, the best beach hotels, and much more.

QUESTION: We are a family of 3 and looking to stay is Bath, United Kingdom. What hotel offers the best accommodations for our family?


ANSWER: The Bath Priory Hotel Restaurant and Spa

The Bath Priory is a real find. Tucked inconspicuously in a tranquil corner of Bath, once you discover it you will not want to leave. Ignore the restaurant at your peril - with a Michelin star and three AA Rosettes, the elegant dining rooms provides ambrosial food, with splendid views over the fabulous landscape gardens. The gardens themselves, tended by award winning Gardener Jane Moore, roll effortlessly down from the sun terrace and provide a plethora of plants, flowers, sculptures and the walled Kitchen Garden, producing fresh produce for the restaurant.
The Bath Priory

The hotel, built in 1835 as a private residence on land once owned by The Priory of Bath Abbey, is steeped in history and gives more than a nod to its Gothic influences - with cheeky gargoyles and dramatic arches, tempered by soft furnishings inside - beautiful paintings adorning the walls, objets d'art, freshly cut flowers and French Belle Epoque chandeliers. Sit by the smoldering embers of the log fires, sink into the sofas and enjoy a good book or an afternoon tea at leisure. If you are yearning for a well earned spa break, then the Garden Spa, complete with indoor and outdoor pools and the full range of beauty treatments, will ensure you are blissfully content.
Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a family holiday, a conference venue or a special place for your wedding reception, this quintessentially English luxury hotel in Bath will not disappoint.

 


We recommend the Deluxe Room. It is spacious with courtyard views and has been tastefully designed with traditionally elegant character and each room comes with a separate living area. An extra bed at 60 pounds per night can be arranged

All rates are based on double occupancy and extra person charges may apply. Please be advised that the rates, availability, as well as any extra person charges are subject to change depending on the hotel’s policies.
