  • Overview
    Introduction

    No.15 Great Pulteney is an impressively luxurious and forward-thinking boutique hotel in Bath, hidden behind an imposing Grade I listed Georgian façade on Bath’s grandest street. Owners Ian and Christa Taylor have designed No.15 with an awareness of Bath’s heritage as the original trendy getaway, but an imaginative approach to these traditions will captivate the contemporary chic set as well. Visually stunning in so many ways, we love the rich array of modern artworks on display. Lauran Sagar's Lost Earing Chandalier, 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 hotel you will want to revisit time and again. Four-legged friends are welcome.

    Activities

    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 of Great Pulteney Street. 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.

    No.15 Great Pulteney's central location makes it the perfect hotel 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.

    Dining

    Cafe 15 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. If visiting on a Sunday, be sure not to miss the brilliant brunch menu, which not only includes hearty classics made from the finest ingredients but also free-flowing Bloody Marys or prosecco.

    The 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 the blackcurrant, yuzu and coconut set cream and Persian love cake. These treats are paired with one of the many teas in No.15’s curated collection, or if you prefer with a glass of bubbly. 

    Whilst dogs are not allowed in the restaurant, they are welcome in the bar.

    How to get there?

    You’ll find the hotel in the centre of Great Pulteney Street, just a couple of minutes’ stroll from Bath Abbey and opposite the Recreation ground. No.15 is a short taxi ride or a 10-minute level walk from Bath Spa Station.

    If you’re coming by car:
    From the south via the A36 (Warminster Road):
     Follow main flow of traffic for the town centre and the road drops down a slope over the canal and around to the left. The road then divides into two with a park on the left and traffic lights ahead of you (Bathwick Street). Take the left-hand lane alongside the park and after about 150m, take the second turn on the right, directly opposite the Holburne Museum. This is Great Pulteney Street and you'll find No.15 half way along the street on the right-hand side.

    From the M4 via the A46 (Gloucester Road): Nine miles from Junction 18 of the M4, leave the dual carriageway at the slip road signposted for Bath (keep an eye out for the camera on the dual carriageway, about 1 mile from the exit, where a 50mph speed limit is in force). Take the 3rd exit into the town centre. After approximately 1.5miles after passing Morrisons supermarket on your left, you will come to a major junction. Keep in the left hand lane approaching this junction and follow the signs for Warminster for the next half a mile. Keep going straight until, immediately after a row of shops on your right (Bathwick Street), you see a park ahead of you. Keep to the right hand lane. The road bears right. Take the second road on the left, directly opposite the stately Holburne Museum. You are now in Great Pulteney Street and No.15 is located halfway down the street on the right-hand side.

    From Bristol and the West via the A36 (Lower Bristol Road): Follow the A36 into Bath and keep going straight. Keep the river to your left the whole time and continue to drive essentially straight. Still on the A36 you will pass under a railway bridge at some traffic lights (Pulteney Road). Stay in the right hand lane and continue straight. Go straight over the roundabout at the bottom of Bathwick Hill and take the first turn left into Great Pulteney Street, directly opposite the Holburne Museum. No.15 is halfway along on the right-hand side.

    Each of the 40 rooms at No.15 Great Pulteney come with their own distinctive character.
