The Bird, Bath

Come and roost at this chic, boutique hotel just a short hop from the centre of Bath and with fab views of the iconic Abbey.

Fly into town for a stay at The Bird, a Victorian villa turned eclectic boutique hotel and an opulent jewel in Bath’s crown, relaunched by innovative hoteliers Ian and Christa Taylor in September 2019.

Witty avian touches abound – sculptures, crockery, wallpaper – with statement art collections and chandeliers in every room, and vast contemporary artworks on the walls.

Nest in 31 individually decorated bedrooms – many with views of Bath Abbey – with super comfy, handmade Hypnos beds, Malin+Goetz bath products and one has an outdoor hot tub (just saying). Many rooms can be made up with twin beds and and a couple have sofa beds, too.

You’re within pecking distance of all of the World Heritage City has to offer – the Royal Crescent, Circus, Roman Baths, Thermae Bath Spa, art galleries, theatre, shops and restaurants – and you’ll get a bird’s view of Bath on the National Trust’s nearby circular Skyline walk with its spectacular views over the city.

Bird Food? Enjoy a complimentary cream tea, when you arrive and breakfast in The Roost from 7.30–9.30am. After a cocktail at The Bird, dinner is available a 5-minute hop away at No.15 Great Pulteney, where you get a 10% discount.

Free use of the spa facilities at the luxury – underground – Spa 15, at No 15 Great Pulteney, when you book a treatment.

Flock together for any type of event, from a birthday party to an all singing, all dancing wedding in one of their vibrant rooms or the entire hotel.

Free parking (rare in Bath). You can bring your well-behaved pooch (ditto).
