No.15 Great Pulteney is a luxurious and forward-thinking boutique hotel, hidden behind an imposing Grade I listed Georgian façade on Bath’s grandest street. Owners Ian and Christa Taylor have designed the boutique bolthole with an awareness of the city's heritage as the original trendy getaway, but also with an imaginative, contemporary approach. Visually appealing, we love the rich array of modern artworks on display. Lauran Sagar's Lost Earring Chandelier, made from over 5,000 individual earrings, sparkles above the sitting room; delicate, playful works by acclaimed glass artist Adam Aaronson illuminate the hotel's hidden nooks and intimate corners.
From the exposed original stonework in the underground spa to the curated cocktail menu printed on decks of playing cards in the bar, No.15 Great Pulteney continually aces the small details, making it a place you'll want to revisit time and again. Oh, and four-legged friends are welcome in some rooms too.
The Dispensary serves uncomplicated but beautifully executed dishes in a relaxed dining room, lined on one side by an antique chemist’s unit, complete with glass philtres and apothecary bottles. Expect hearty plates made from the finest ingredients such as suckling pig croquette and pressed belly of pork with apple, and pine nut purée, and pan-seared scallops with roasted cauliflower, crispy kale, and parsley oil.
A highlight of any stay at No.15 Great Pulteney is the exquisite Afternoon Tea, which offers a unique blend of the quintessential and the curious. Fresh scones and homemade jam sit beside innovative takes on the classics such as pistachio panna cotta. These treats are paired with one of the many teas in the curated collection, or if you prefer with a glass of bubbly.
All-day dining can be enjoyed in the Sitting Room, where sarnies and chicken wings sit alongside charcuterie, burgers, and spring rolls.
While dogs are not allowed in the restaurant, they are welcome in the bar.
Each of the 40 rooms at No.15 Great Pulteney come with their own distinctive character. Many feature works by the promising next generation of Great British artists, lending each a bright and unique character. If you're after an unrivalled sybaritic experience, we recommend plumping for the Hideout Suite with its very own hot tub and steam room. It's worth noting that, while the main building has lift access to every floor, the Coach House is not suitable for those with accessibility issues.
It was the waters of Bath that first attracted the trendsetters of the Georgian period, and No.15 Great Pulteney has fully brought this tradition of ‘taking the waters’ up to date. Let your worries wash away in the cedar-wood hot tub located in the historic vaults beneath the pavements. Follow this up with an ‘Inner Peace’ treatment at the hands of one of No.15’s skilled therapists, using Himalayan salt and essential oils of rose, sandalwood, and jasmine.
The hotel's central location makes it the ideal bolthole from which to explore the sweeping crescents of Bath, and with past residents ranging from Jane Austen to anti-slavery campaigner William Wilberforce, Great Pulteney itself is the perfect gateway to this fascinating city.
Please note: The hot tub and sauna will be temporarily closed to adhere to goverment guidance.
