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
We stayed at Homewood for Valentine’s Day and had the best time. The room was furnished to a high standard and the bed was extremely comfy. The lady that greeted us on the reception was incredibly friendly and really made us feel relaxed and comfortable. We also used the spa which although was small was just why we needed however it could definitely be busy and maybe too small on a Friday or Saturday! Overall an amazing stay and we can’t wait to book again to come back!
After some recent health troubled I had decided to have a night away to relax and recoup.
I arrived at the hotel to vans & workmen everywhere, Couldn’t find the entrance due to this and when I entered the hotel there was nobody to check me in, so I waited in the bar and pressed the bell as the sign instructed- Nobody came until a workman kindly drew a passing staff member to my attention.
The hotel carpets were being cleaned and it was very noisy and not the relaxing environment I had hoped for. I wasn’t informed there was a function on at the hotel when booking or prior to arrival, if I had been made aware of this I probably wouldn’t of booked on this occasion. When I arrived I was told I could order room service but not sit in the restaurant but later that evening discovered it was only cold sandwiches & snacks from the bar menu available and not from the restaurant. I’m coeliac and there was basically nothing on the bar menu I could eat.
The day I arrived there was maintenance carried out on the Hot tub (I was not prewired about this) so it was cold and not usable. Some areas of the hotel were worn and run down, the tiles in my bathroom were cracked and broken and grout was missing from them which made it feel a dirty and unkempt. The shower leaked everywhere when turning it on; the lights on the bathroom mirror were broken and missing. There was a flickering light in my bedroom and there was somebody else’s blood on the inside of my dressing gown in my room.
Having paid extra for a room with a view, I didn’t feel comfortable having my curtains open in the daytime as there were people gathered right outside my window smoking.
There was painting and decorating going on in the hotel. There were dustsheets on floors and men painting in hallways enroute to the spa.
Generally the hotel and staff felt pre-occupied, unorganised and unavailable. I did make an official complaint (which I have never done before) about how disappointed I was with my stay and was met with dishonesty and hostility. AVOID, Open your money elsewhere.
We chose this hotel because it had a spa and was close to Bath for a visit. We were very glad we did as nothing was less than perfect!
The staff were all extremely happy and helpful and the room warm and cosy. We had a treatment each in the spa by Meghan which was excellent! A fabulous spa with outdoor heated pool and a plunge spa pool inside and sauna and steam room. We had a welcome drink of our choice and the fabulous barman made a cracking G&T..dinner in their restaurant was amazing, how they managed in an on going refurbishment I don’t know, simply divine food! Although carpets were being laid as we were there, we didn’t experience any noise or annoyance by it and the whole place was being redone to a very high standard, I loved the red painted bar area, very warm. Breakfast was also top class, anything and everything you could want even home made granola! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel, it’s charming and modern and friendly and quite possibly the nicest experience we have ever had!
The place to stay for a relaxing break with our dog.
Beautiful country walk, great food and friendly staff.
Room 17 , spacious room with a view to the pool .
We had dinner in front of the log fire with our dog. Will be back soon.
