OVERVIEW

The Roseate Villa is one of Bath's top small-scale hotels. Taking up a pair of imposing Victorian houses overlooking a park, it is upmarket without being showy, and its bedrooms models of tasteful design. There's a lovely light-filled breakfast room and smart bar; breakfasts (and afternoon teas) are first rate, with bread and cakes baked on site.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Located on a quiet street in a residential area, directly across the street lie the ten acres of Henrietta Park, which opened in 1897. The city centre, Roman Baths and Bath Abbey are about a ten-minute walk away, on the other side of the River Avon across Pulteney Bridge.

By car: around 45 minutes from Bristol, 2 hours 30 minutes from London and 3 hours 30 minutes from Manchester.

By train: there are direct services to Bath Spa from Bristol Temple Meads (11 minutes), Cardiff Central (1 hour 5 minutes) and London Paddington (1 hour 15 minutes). The hotel is around a 15-minute walk from Bath Spa station. Book trains to Bath Spa.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The Roseate Villa fills a pair of rather imposing stone-clad Victorian houses. It's much more attractive inside than out, with a sweeping double staircase, pretend-bookcase wallpaper in the hall and on landings, and an air of unfussy and understated elegance and civility permeating the bedrooms and breakfast room and bar.

THE FACILITIES

The Roseate Villa is part of a small collection of hotels in India and the UK. It is exceedingly well managed by Caroline Browning (Muttley, her border terrier, may be in evidence too), and the uniformed staff are very professional. Lots of help on the best Bath restaurants to book is on offer before and during your stay.
