OVERVIEW

Bath's newest, upmarket hotel takes up most of an 18th-century terrace in the centre of the city. The hotel uses Bath's Georgian heritage as its theme but in an unstuffy and sometimes cheeky way. Other key enticements are the peaceful and convenient location, and the first-rate restaurant, a real treat for meat lovers.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

On South Parade, a harmonious terrace built in the 1740s by John Wood the Elder, one of Bath's leading Georgian architects. The street is a cul-de-sac, so even though you're right in the centre of the city with the key sights and shopping streets a short walk away, it's very peaceful. It's five minutes on foot to the Roman Baths, the city's top tourist attraction, and to Bath Spa train station.

By car: Hotel Indigo is 2 hours 40 mins from London, 2 hours from Birmingham and 3 hours 20 mins from Sheffield.

By train: London Paddington to Bath Spa takes 1 hour 20 mins. The hotel is a 5-minute walk from the station. Book trains to Bath Spa.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Georgian, but with playful twists. Along with architectural prints and historical maps of the city, public areas are decked out with modern chandeliers and Regency-style portraits, with splattered paint blocking out subjects' faces. It's all very visually arresting, but the style may sit somewhat uneasily with purists.

THE FACILITIES

Staff are personable and very much on the ball. You might be surprised that a new hotel of this quality has no spa, but the city's Thermae Bath Spa is just a five-minute walk away.

BED AND BATH

Bedrooms come in various themes such as Architectural Beauty and Romance & Mischief. We're not convinced about the vaulted suites being created underneath South Parade's pavement. Bathrooms have prettily-patterned or clean white tiling, walk-in rainforest showers, plus in dearer rooms roll-top baths.

Room types: Standard, Superior, Premium, Suite

Key amenities: ensuite bathroom, Hypnos beds, Egyptian cotton linen, tea and coffee-making facilties, TV, free Wi-Fi

FOOD AND DRINK

The Elder fills small-scale, masculine dining rooms decorated with hunting scenes. Under head chef Gavin Edney, it produces outstanding modern British cuisine with an emphasis on game. Drinks can be had in a clubby bar or on the terrace.

The Elder: farm-to-fork and nose-to-tail fine dining, British cuisine, game, seafood, sustainable, seasonal and locally-sourced produce. Vegan and vegetarian menus. Open Weds-Sun for lunch and dinner. Set lunch from £27.50, two-course dinner for £37.50, three courses for £45.
