History is writ large across this newly opened hotel, which was once home to an eclectic array of characters, from money-laundering admirals to commissioners of police. No.15 Great Pulteney commands a grand presence on one of Bath’s loveliest streets and received great fanfare when it debuted in 2016. Owners Ian and Christa Taylor had already made their mark operating two other top local hotels, giving this latest gem an impressive pedigree.
Inside, you’ll find a diverse collection of curios, from antique apothecary bottles to a “lost earring chandelier,” to accompany the glorious views over Bath’s parks and stately rooftops. Sticking close to the history of the building, interiors include chalky pastels and carefully sourced contemporary art. Everything from the pillow-soft beds to the chemist’s shop units in the café has been chosen to add something to the overall feel of No.15 – kick back with a cocktail or afternoon tea and get to know the history of this intriguing hotel.
Occupying a prime location, No.15 is a short stroll from a number of Bath’s landmarks. You’ll want to get out and discover the imposing Bath Abbey and steaming Roman Baths, as well as the city’s excellent shopping thoroughfare. Dinner can be found at a number of restaurants in the surrounding streets, while the hotel’s substantial full English breakfast will more than set you up for a day of exploring.
How to Get There
Loved everything about our stay. Delightful room, quiet yet very convenient location, good breakfast and friendly staff.Would be happy to recommend the hotel to friends and family. Enjoyed the cocktails too.
A quick overnight stay in Bath at this fantastically located property. What a wonderful building. We choose the hotel as they are dog friendly an we were not disappointed. The staff were extremely welcoming, helpful and delightful. The doggy touched in the room were appreciated. A park for the dog is easily accessed from the hotel. We had a lovely spacious room at the back of the hotel overlooking the park so really quiet. The bathroom was small but well equipped. Just a few gripes; the door to our room had to be really slammed in order for it to be latched locked which disturbed our dog let alone the adjoining rooms, the bar service was slow and a large party dominated the area where we had reserved and they were overrun at breakfast which again meant slow service. Overall though we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.
Very good hotel close to city centre. Cosy room was cosy but with great views and very quiet. Breakfast was very nice. We would definitely stay here again if ever we were in Bath. The art work around the hotel was a really quirky touch.
Great little hotel in easy walking distance to town centre.Laid back friendly vibe, with great decor.Love the Dyson hairdryers!Haven’t eaten here (friend lives just a few doors away) so can’t comnent on the restaurant/food.Nice bar though!
Myself and my partner stayed here for a night. We were very impressed. The staff and service we received was amazing. They were all very helpful and friendly. The breakfast includes a full English which was very tasty. The room we had was great. It had lots of nice touches such as sky TV, complimentary bottled water and a dyson hairdryer! We couldn’t fault the hotel at all and will definitely return.
Something to consider...the parking advertised is actually a 10-15 minute walk away from the hotel so drop your bags off first. It’s also £15 but this is advertised on their site.
