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
Had a good stay here - some building work going on, but, that shouldn’t take too much longer
Good rooms, good breakfast and nice evening meal
The pool - outside and indoor is a real bonus
Would happily stay again
Refurbishment nearing completion. Designer stylish in good taste and quality.
Without exception, staff very welcoming and helpful.
Bedroom spacious and well equipped. Communal areas cosy, snug and well-furnished
Spa compact but perfectly adequate.
Hotel well-positioned between Bath and Longleat
Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a mini moon getaway with my husband, and it was lovely! Gorgeous rooms & grounds, lovely little spa (quite small, but still nice!) And staff were very helpful. Rooms with trimmings like a coffee machine, bottled water etc. Close enough to Bath that you can drive and explore there. Didn't try the food so can't comment there, but we had the most wonderful stay!!
We spent 3 nights in a garden suite which I expected to be out of this world for £860 B and B. Just s few improvements could make all the difference. No fridge, no safe, no window to open when it’s stuffy. The garden wasn’t very private, Tiled floor needed small towels either side of the bed to wipe feet on before getting back into bed. Turn down service would be appreciated. Apparently some people had Choc’s in their room. Food was lovely and staff were friendly. Didn’t appreciate men laying flags outside our room at 830 in the morning. Window to bathrooms need modesty glass or film
On them. When we left spoken to the manager but he didn’t even ask if we’d had a nice stay. Won’t be back so hope they make some improvements as it was a little disappointing.
We booked a secret escapes one night break for my husband’s birthday in a deluxe room with an evening meal.
On arrival we were given room 7 and when we entered we found it quite shaded and dark with 2 windows , one facing the road area which was covered by trees and another over an out building so not very picturesque.
I thought rather than come on here later and complain about our room I went down nicely and asked at reception was it possible to have another room even if I had to pay for an upgrade as it was a special occasion and we wanted to make the most of our stay even if it was for only one night .
Reception were very obliging and showed me 3 possible rooms.
The first room number 3 was I was informed was a £60 upgrade( as far as I was aware remained empty the night we were there) and the one next to it room 4 had exactly the same amazing view as room 3 over the front garden for the same rate we had paid so we opted for that and we were so glad we did as it was a gorgeous refurbished room .
When we thought about it after we just wondered as room 4 was vacant anyway and the same rate as room 7 , why we were not first assigned to it ?
We realised after, that decorating was going on on our floor and lots of banging when we first checked in so perhaps that is why ?
The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful and obliging .
Dinner was good, can recommend the cheese soufflé which I had and my husband had the chicken wrapped in Parma ham for his main which he said was absolutely delicious. I had the plaice which was nice but lacked a wow like his !!!
Our waiter which I didn’t take his name worked very hard and was so pleasant and came with some truffles from the chef for my husband’s birthday which was a nice touch.
Breakfast the following morning was good , the full English was tasty with amazing perfectly cooked poached eggs with your ordinary usual laid out buffet .
We used the pool and spa facilities which were very good and quiet when we were there .
Looking back at our stay I recommend booking via the hotel website perhaps rather than another site as it works around the same cost in the end . You may save a little on the room rate but I noticed on their website a complimentary cream tea is included . We opted for a cream tea with earl grey tea in which was included x 2 small freshly baked scones each which were delicious but came to a total of £27-50 with service charge -approx what we saved on our room rate!! It was nice but I really felt that was rather over priced for what you got .
Overall a very good visit . The refurbishment is a mix of traditional with quirky.
