With just 99 rooms, The Gainsborough Bath is one of the smaller hotels in Great Britain. However, it still offers one of the most amazing Spa areas in the whole country with three therapeutic pools, several treatment rooms and much more.

Luxurious rooms at The Gainsborough Bath

The location in the heart of the city of Bath makes room at The Gainsborough Bath very limited. It is no surprise that the rooms are, while being utterly luxurious, quite small compared to other luxury hotels.

  1. The luxury hotel market is definitely picking up in Bath. We stayed a few months ago in a luxury apartment in the city as there was a total lack of room availability in the nicer hotels. May need to visit Bath again in the future! xx

    • And that’s great. I see a lot of potential in Bath. It’s a very interesting destination and neither far from the city center of London nor from Heathrow!
