The Gainsborough Bath Spa, Bath
This Hotel Oozes Class
This is possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. I was here for the night before and night after the wedding (they even changed me to a better room upon request on the day itself). Nothing was too much for anyone. They were incredibly kind, courteous, wished me good luck, even ironed a shirt for me (the iron in the room isn't my fave kind) all at short notice to make sure I was ready. Breakfast, although a little pricey, could feed an entire army so it's bang for the buck (as a couple, you won't need to order two). Bed is large and comfortable, room and hotel oozes class. Definitely looking forward to staying again and making use of the exclusive spa next time.

Exquisite Experience
Loved this 5 Star experience! Staff was exceptionally warm and attentive, providing a tour of the property before escorting us to our room. The facilities are immaculate and location can’t be beat. The room was well appointed, clean and the bathroom was heavenly. We only had 1 night here, but will definitely be back to stay longer at the Gainsborough and enjoy the beauty of Bath.
