Fodor's Expert Review The Gainsborough Bath Spa

Beau St., Bath, Bath and North East Somerset, BA1 1QY, England Fodor's Choice

As the only hotel in the United Kingdom with access to Bath's natural thermal waters, thanks to its location in a custom-designed Spa Village, the Gainsborough has a unique appeal. Add the opulent neo-Georgian rooms in a grand Georgian former hospital, perhaps the best staff in town, and a restaurant focused on the creative side of British cuisine, and you'd be hard put to find fault with this temple of luxury located in the very heart of the city's comings-and-goings.

PROS

  • spectacular Georgian setting in a central location
  • exclusive spa facilities
  • flawless service

CONS

  • only showers in some rooms
