The Queensberry Hotel, Bath
Built in 1771 for the Marquess of Bath - who also gave his name to a code of conduct for boxing, known as the "Queensberry Rules" - four smart terraced Georgian townhouses have been turned into an elegant four AA star hotel in a discreet yet supremely central part of Bath. The 29 luxurious bedrooms (including three suites) boast a quirky sense of style and benefit from having Bath's only Michelin-starred restaurant handily located in the basement. It's the perfect choice for visitors to this historic city who want a fresh alternative to the more traditional places that make up most of Bath's other upmarket hotels.
Pretend you're following in the footsteps of Jane Austen who made Bath her home in the early 19th century. Turn right out the Queensberry's front door, navigate around The Circus and across to Royal Crescent, then admire the box hedges and topiaries of the Georgian Garden and views across Royal Victoria Park.
Situated on a quiet residential street, a short walk from most of Bath's must-see sites.
By car: From London, the drive is 2 hours and 30 minutes. From Bristol, the drive is 36 minutes.
By train: From Paddington, the train takes around 1 hours and 20 minutes. From Bristol, the train journey takes half an hour. After that, the walk takes 16 minutes to the hotel. Instead, a taxi ride takes 8 minutes. thetrainline.com
Style & Character
Perfect for weekenders wanting luxury accommodation and fine dining without the stuffiness of more traditional upmarket hotels. We love the maximalist animal print wallpaper above the bed which contrast well with the neutral block colours used elsewhere in one of the bedrooms.
Service & Facilities
The valet parking service, staffed by professional looking drivers that you feel safe handing your car-keys to, which is included in the price of the overnight parking (£7).

We love the Superior Room decorated in an elegant Regency style with a smart blue sofa and smart octagonal coffee table, ideal for taking afternoon tea whilst listening to Classic FM from the bedside Ruark radio. The Bath sandstone in the deluxe bathroom (with freestanding roll-top bath) that exactly matches the neighbouring honey-coloured Georgian buildings is a highlight.

Food & Drink
The seven course tasting menu features dishes such as tagliatelle with white truffle and 36-month aged parmesan, and a very posh cheese on toast consisting of Tunworth cheese served on sourdough and topped with black Périgord truffle. We love the unexpectedly successful combination of dark chocolate mousse with yoghurt sorbet and sliced olives in oil for dessert.
