Abbey Hotel

Abbey Hotel

Bath, The UK

Historic yet modern, the Abbey Hotel occupies a Georgian building that has been a hotel since 1890. It spent a period as military offices during World War II, before being renovated into the hotel it is today. Well located on one of Bath’s main streets, the property is filled with bright and often innovative artworks.

From the 3D picture of racing cyclists in the restaurant to the bold architectural prints in the corridors, the hotel’s art selection makes simply wandering through the property a pleasure. The hotel’s ground-floor restaurant, Allium, is one of the most popular in Bath.


A bright and lively hotel, ideally located in the heart of Bath, this is one of our firm choices.

Rooms feature fresh, white decor with vibrant accents. While notes like the simple crystal chandeliers are evocative of the hotel’s heritage, the rooms are full of modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi, plush cashmere bedding and iPads to book hotel services. En suite bathrooms feature calming, neutral tones and luxury bath products. Front-facing third-floor bedrooms offer views over the city and beyond, while the back-facing rooms look out over Georgian rooftops.


The Abbey Hotel sits along one of the main streets in Bath, North Parade, which is lined with fashionable shops and restaurants. The hotel is close to some of the major historical sites of Bath, right around the corner from the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey.
