Georgian columns, landscaped gardens, a restaurant in a former ballroom – if you’re looking for your inner Jane Austen, Macdonald Bath Spa is a great place to start.

Just 15 minutes’ walk from the city centre, the hotel is within easy reach of Bath's best-known attractions. The city’s restorative spring waters have drawn visitors since AD60, when the Romans constructed a temple and baths. The complex was reconstructed in the late 18th century and is open seven days a week. The famous Georgian terrace, the Royal Crescent, is 25 minutes' walk, and museums, including the Jane Austen Centre and the Holburne Museum, are all within 20 minutes' walk.

The Roman Baths may be a must-see, but you’ll find a less pungent spa experience at your hotel, with a range of Elemis treatments (supplements apply -- it’s a good idea to book treatments in advance). There is also a heated indoor pool, gym, hydrotherapy pool, whirlpool and thermal suite. The two AA-Rosette Vellore Restaurant is in a former ballroom, complete with columns and floor-to-ceiling windows. There is also a drawing room for afternoon tea (at a supplement) and there are two bars.

All Classic Rooms (Double, Twin, Four-Poster or Club) have ensuite marble bathrooms, Nespresso machines and free Wi-Fi. Executive Rooms have garden views; Feature Rooms, in the hotel's original Georgian Wing, have views over the city. There is also an Executive Suite and a Penthouse Suite, both in the private Imperial Suites wing of the hotel and accessed via courtyard gardens.
