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
We stayed here for the weekend to celebrate! Eight of us checked in and from start to finish it was fabulous. Great location. Wonderful inventive food. Great cocktails and a decent champagne. Rooms were opulent and comfy. The larder kept us in crisps and ice cream and the staff were really lovely.
Highly recommended. We will be back!
We were staying at The Bird,the sister hotel, for a recent spa weekend. As we were arriving late evening and not wanting to venture too far and after looking at the reviews on trip advisor we decided to eat here. We also received a discount as we were staying at the sister hotel.
The menu is quite small but the food was lovely and the service very attentive.
A lovely meal in pleasant surroundings
Stayed at No.15 Great Pulteney for a long weekend in May. The rooms were comfortable and well appoioted. My only advise is to make sure to go for a room on the back of the hotel. The rooms facing the street below are quite noisy. Make sure to try the excellent cocktail bar as well. It was a real highlight of our stay. Also, the hotel offers free on-street parking for guests. You just need to register your car with them when you arrive.
Great location just a short walk to attractions and shopping. You can park behind the hotel for £22. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming . Bar 15 is lovely quirky bar with a selection of drinks and food. Larder is great with a selection of drinks and food. Lovely ice cream! Perfect location for our first time in bath. Wr have akready reccomended to friends. Thank you very much.
We had a fantastic stay but it is a lot of money for what you get. We have stayed in as nice hotels for a similar price but we didn’t have to pay for breakfast separately and had complimentary drinks for the duration of our stay (drinks trolley). Breakfast is not included here. It is £12.50 for continental and £19.50 for one cooked dish. Parking is also £22 a night.
