Where to Stay in Bath – a neighbourhood guide

Find a place to stay

From original Roman Baths and a towering abbey, to Georgian streets and expansive parks, Bath is commonly referenced as one of the most beautiful cities in Britain. Whether you’re after a relaxing spa holiday with opulent 5-star facilities, or a city break in an elegant and central location, Bath has a range of different areas and hotels that will easily cater for your needs.
Hotels in City Centre

 

 

Many of the city’s hotels have set up residence in the honey-coloured Georgian buildings which Bath is famous for. Expect to find reliable amenities such as free WiFi, on-site eateries, and elegantly designed interiors that mirror the surrounding architecture.

 

Bathwick

 

 

Bathwick is a short hop east of the city centre, and has a range of accommodation options for those looking to stay in a more suburban setting. Close to parks, the river, and a sprawling golf course, Bathwick is ideal for people who want to be in quiet surroundings but only a short distance from the heart of the city.

Like the city centre, elegance abounds in Bathwick. From opulent 5-star pads with unashamedly flowery decor which any Austen fan would love, to boutique nooks with picturesque gardens, many of the hotels here ooze style and class.

 

Royal Victoria Park

 

 

Towards the northern edge of the city centre, the expansive green of the Royal Victoria Park and it surrounding streets offer tranquillity and a particularly beautiful area to call home during your Bath break. The park itself offers almost 60 acres of glowing green chill out space, perfect for strolling couples and frolicking families alike. 

 

Hotels in Victoria Park

 

 

With quintessentially Bath-like Georgian facades, as well as on-site dining facilities and guestroom perks like free WiFi and Egyptian cotton sheets, the more refined hotels in this area sit in perfect tandem with the impeccable surroundings.

 

Oldfield Park

 

 

Oldfield Park is to the west of the city centre and offers a chance to soak up a bit of real Bath living, away from the picture-postcard tourist hotspots. Here you'll be among local families and the big, fun-living student population. It's still within walking distance of the centre, though, and is as pretty as much of the rest of Bath.

There are some cheaper options in and around the Oldfield park area, including reliable chain hotels. That said, swanky boutique luxury is also available in this neck of the woods, marrying old world decor with modern perks like free WiFi.
