The Bath Priory

Offering a tranquil haven within walking distance of Bath’s honeyed stone terraces, the Bath Priory welcomes guests as if to the home of a friend, albeit a friend with an award-winning restaurant and L’Occitane spa housed in Georgian grandeur.

The Bath Priory
  • Housed in a rather splendid Georgian country house, the Bath Priory creates a welcoming stay with individually designed rooms and homely touches

  • With an award-winning restaurant, L’Occitane Spa, indoor and outdoor pools and acres of exquisite gardens, you may wish to never leave the grounds

  • Despite having the feel of a country house hotel, the Georgian terraces, historic sights and Roman baths are just a 25-minute walk or short drive

  • Enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea on the terrace, looking out over the award-winning gardens


With 33 guest rooms and suites housed in a splendid Georgian home, within walking distance of Bath yet with a quiet, tranquil location and picturesque gardens, the Bath Priory combines the escape of a country house with the access to the sights and restaurants of a city hotel.  

Tastefully and individually furnished with antiques, heavy drapes and thoughtful touches such as homemade biscuits, the rooms are supremely comfortable. Crisp white bed linens, Vispring beds and L’Occitane bath amenities create a welcoming retreat, while complimentary WIFI keeps you connected with the outside world.  

Under the expert eye of Michael Nizzero, formerly of The Ritz, the main restaurant is a form affair of seasonal flavors exquisitely crafted into contemporary French cuisine. An extensive wine list is artfully presented by the Head Sommelier, all to be enjoyed with sweeping views across the award-winning gardens of the house. For a more casual dining experience, The Pantry is open all day for everything from hearty burgers to mussels, indulgent afternoon tea to cocktails. A sumptuous Drawing Room and Library, the walls adorned with art from the private collection of the owners, offer a cosy and welcoming retreat in which to unwind.  

While the sun-drenched terrace, heady scent of wisteria and tranquil gardens may be all the relaxation you need, the Garden Spa by L’Occitane, the first for the brand, is an olfactory journey to Provence. Botanical ingredients, essential oils and transformative scents create a sanctuary for a range of treatments, while the indoor pool, sauna and steam pod complete the indulgently relaxing escape. 

With four acres of manicured grounds, ponds and fragrant kitchen garden, the Bath Priory offers plenty of space to explore, unwind and soak in the beauty of a classic English landscape. Step outside the grand gates and you’re just a three-minute walk from Royal Victoria Park, while a 20-minute walk across the park brings you to the elegant terraces, historic sights and shopping of Bath.
