Be immersed in history and romance when you book one of the many lovely hotels in Bath... Read more
Many of the finest hotels in this city, which is in the county of Somerset in the south west of England, are housed in the grand old buildings that have made Bath such a popular tourist attraction. Some of the big chains, such as Holiday Inn and Travelodge, offer mid-range and budget hotels in Bath in modern buildings that jar with the character of the city. Generally though, the hotels match Bath's charm.
The centre of Bath, where you'll discover most of the attractions, is compact enough to be walkable so it's wise to book a hotel as close to the central area as possible. There are luxury hotels as well as cosy B&Bs throughout the city, though the city centre is mostly the territory of the grand, five-star hotels that occupy excellent spots and offer top levels of service. If you're on a budget, consider one of the city's guest houses, B&Bs or big-name cut-price hotels, which are more likely to be on the outskirts of the city centre. Public transport is efficient, or you could simply stroll to the places you wish to see.
The majesty of Bath is undeniable. The high price of hotel rooms is also indisputable. Book your hotel early to get a good deal and be aware that, at weekends and on public holidays, many hotels request a two-night minimum stay.
