Overview

Bailbrook House Hotel -- a Grade II-listed Georgian mansion built by architect John Eveleigh in the 1790s, is nestled in manicured gardens on the outskirts of Bath. The property boasts country and city vistas, a laid-back atmosphere and a honey-stone façade.

After you arrive, there's no need to drive to explore. The city centre, home to the Roman Baths, The Pump Room and the Royal Crescent, is a 15-minute taxi ride away. There is also a regular bus service into town (the bus stop is 500 metres from the hotel), or you can embark on the pleasant hour-long stroll along the Kennett and Avon Canal. Return to a traditional afternoon tea served on the terrace or in one of the three Royal Lounges.

"The Cloisters Restaurant offers romantic, high-end dining, and staff are on the ball," according to The Daily Telegraph. The restaurant holds two AA Rosettes and is in the manor house's vaulted cellars. The Conservatory Bar is a lovely spot for a snack or an after-dinner nightcap, and the Lansdown Restaurant serves a buffet breakfast each morning. There is also a small gym on site.

Executive Rooms are in the modern annex adjacent to the mansion house. Wi-Fi is free.

From the press:


  • "The hotel stands at the top of a long, winding drive, and has pleasant views over sloping lawns and mature trees down the Avon Valley, with Bath visible in the distance" -- The Daily Telegraph

  • "[Bailbrook House] offers superior accommodation, ideally situated on the edge of Bath, set in attractive grounds with ample parking" -- The AA Hotel Guide 2018

Loads of coffee in our room but no normal tea bags, guessing they got missed as there was every other type! Tv did a lot of pixelating.

We loved the historic ambience of the hotel and the excellent service give by the great staff. The location was ideal just out of Bath and within distance for travelling to the City by car, bus service and even by boat. The dining experience was very high standard indeed.

Booking an evening meal in the restaurant is essential, at least a few days before arrival, and it would be helpful for future Travelzoo users to be aware of this. Twice now I have had to struggle to achieve a time to suit me and it was disappointing to discover on arrival this time that there had been a mistake with timings. However it was sorted to our satisfaction eventually. Other guests were not as fortunate and so although Travelzoo does the booking which went without a hitch, this is the second time the hotel has failed to achieve what was requested. My first experience was not with a Travelzoo booking, but a repeat was disappointing. Breakfast on Bank Holiday Monday was chaotic!! Insufficient staff to keep the buffet table stocked, long delays in the arrival of beverages and what staff there were, were hard pressed to keep everyone happy including themselves! Obviously staff numbers were insufficient to deal with the number of guests and according to one member of staff it had been busy continuously since 7.30!!!! Tuesday morning was totally different, calm, efficient service all done with a smile - lovely! I hope these comments are fed back to Bailbrook House which is in a delightful setting and has much to recommend it. We will return!!!

We were disappointed with the food in the Cloisters restaurant, tepid & bland for both of us, we could also overhear other couples discussing similar, the bar food however was really good which we both enjoyed,

Lovely room but we did upgrade to stay in the mansion at £60 per night extra because I thought it would be less walking for my husband to restaurants ,however, the breakfast was in the annex and a long walk!! I did think £60 extra a bit steep.

The restaurant service was very slow in the Cloisters and in the Lansdown Bar there was a big mix up and we waited ages for our steak and we were the first to arrive !! Overall we did enjoy it as we love Bath

Warwick is an outstanding employee who was interested in us as guests and gave friendly, knowledgeable advice. We would also like to commend waitress Aida who was under pressure, 2 large groups arrived for breakfast at the same time, but she remained calm, smiling and professional.
