A beautiful listed building dating back to the 13th century, Homewood Park Hotel & Spa has been renovated with traditional stone and is covered in clambering ivy. Set just 15 minutes outside historic Bath, the hideaway is surrounded by 10 acres of award-winning gardens, park and woodland. The hotel’s spa, which has been recommended by the Good Spa Guide, is tranquilly set in its own building, nestled in the gardens.
While you’re here, don’t miss the chance to try out some of the signature treatments, which include Elemis body therapies. The gourmet British restaurant has been awarded two AA Rosettes and offers imaginative cuisine, presented with aplomb. Add afternoon tea by the roaring log fire to your to-do list too, all the better when you throw a glass of chilled Taittinger champagne into the mix.
How to Get There
Stayed here with friends while we were visiting Bath Christmas Market. The building itself is beautiful and very grand as you drive in, the grounds are beautiful and as it was Christmas, they had white lighted reindeers everywhere which were gorgeous. The staff were absolutely amazing, the right balance of attentive and polite without being overbearing. They made us feel very welcome.
The rooms were absolutely stunning and made me and my newly pregnant wife very happy and relaxed. Highly recommend.
The hotel is set in lovely grounds and is quite picturesque from the outside. The staff are friendly and welcoming and is only about a ten minute drive from the town which is ideal. The hotel is quite tired inside, the bedroom was large and the bed was extremely comfortable, but it’s fairly basic and anyone with an eye on detail will pick up on the finer details. The room wasn’t turned down and the coffee and milk wasn’t replenished ready for the morning. The shower was warm but power was lacking and the tv was glitchy as only free view available and I think the weather was interfering with the signal. Personally for 299 for two people it was pricey for what it was. We didn’t use the Spa facilities or dine in the hotel so unable to make comment on them. But if you are after just a room as you are there to enjoy what Bath has to offer I would go for something like Holiday Inn.
My friend and I visited Homewood Park this afternoon as a birthday treat for my friend. I have been a couple of years ago and It was lovely so thought we would go again. Having read the recent reviews I was slightly concerned but we went ahead anyway. Apon arrival we were greeted by a lovely receptionist who showed us to the spa and where towels dressing gowns etc were, asked us if we would like to book any treatments and then left us to it. The spa is lovely and just what we needed to an afternoon of girly catch up. Lovely hot spa pool, steam room and sauna, and lots of beds to lounge on with a magazine. After about 45 minutes someone popped down and asked if we were ok and if we would like a drink. We order some proseccos and they were quickly delivered to us. The first glass was a bit flat so we pressed a button for the bar and someone was with us within minutes and happily replaced them. We then had afternoon tea included in our package and that really stood out for us. We waited about 30 minutes but it was well worth the wait. Honestly one of the best afternoon teas I have ever had. The warm fresh scotch egg was amazing as were all the cakes and scones. The hotel is clearly undergoing some changes but it didn’t affect our day and I look forward to returning in future. Thank you for a lovely day.
We booked for a special occasion having stayed here sometime ago when it was a typical country house hotel. However the hotel is now under new management and at present undergoing refurbishment. We were not informed of this even though they knew it was for a very special occasion. Obviously had we known we would have gone somewhere else - they simply didn't seem to care ?
Because of the works the hotel at the moment is lacking ambiance, although the grounds are beautiful if somewhat neglected.
Our room had a lovely view over the garden but was nothing exceptional. The bathroom was pokey with an over bath shower.
The dining room is poorly furnished and is lacking in atmosphere. Dinner was expensive and the food not particularly well presented although quite good.
Breakfast too was expectable.
The staff were very helpful and pleasant.
Overall we were very disappointed and only stayed one night.
To be fair when the refurbishment is completed I'm sure it will be a delightful place to stay but for now I would give it a miss.
Superb hotel, really in keeping with the area, huge rooms, lovely views, great food, exciting lighting...
But a cuckoo clock going off once an hour drove me bananas! Part of a collection of clocks in reception.
