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 had the most wonderful stay here for a romantic weekend. Staff couldn’t do enough to help before and during our stay. Our room was simply gorgeous and breakfast was really delicious too. The building and art work is so unique we just didn’t want to leave.
Lovely, comfy rooms, we stayed in a suite which I can highly recommend, love the larder especially the ice cream, friendly and helpful staff, good location and great breakfast, thoroughly enjoyed our stay here
We stayed at the hotel last year for a girls shopping weekend and just returned from our second visit. The hotel is in a great location, within easy walking distance to the shops/restaurants, but on a relatively quiet street. We stayed in a junior suite which was perfect as a twin room. However, the storage was quite limited, so a small chest of drawers in the room would have been great. We didn’t have breakfast or dinner in the hotel, but we had the Sunday Brunch which was excellent - make sure you are hungry! Also, the bar serves some great cocktails. Very friendly staff throughout the hotel as well.
My husband and toddler stayed here for my husbands birthday and it was just perfect.
The hotel is so quirky and fascinating,
The little sweetie room on the top floor is such an added treat, ice creams drinks sweets
The bedroom was so lovely
A tv in the bath
We had an extra special treat whilst staying here too
Jamie dornan from 50 shades of grey was stopping with his stunning wife so I got to eat my breakfast in his company,
My husband would not let me go up to him as he said it’s not fair and it’s his break too, which I understood but I really wanted to say hi!
We are in the restaurant at night as lovely and so was breakfast
Can’t fault the hotel in any way
So close to everything and if you stop here u will not be disappointed x
Lovely visit on the lunch spa package. Very quirky and beautiful rooms. Team were extremely friendly and accommodating. The spa area is really cosy, but limited on facilities for a spa. Would be nice to have a waiting area just to sit and chill in the spa not just the lounge area for after treatments. The treatment that myself and my husband had was super, next time we will book a longer one :) The food was excellent as was the allergen menu. It was fantastic and extremely diligent to hear the waiter call to the kitchen after I had made my order to make sure they knew I had an allergen. Made me feel extremely confident in my order and that the team really cared about me as a guest. Really enjoyed this lovely treat. Great atmosphere, fab team, excellent food, beautiful building! Will be back thank you!
