Enquiries and reservations may be made through our website, by email or by telephone.

Should you wish to walk from Bath Spa Train Station, this is a pleasant 10-15 minute level walk through one of the nicest parts of the city. By taxi, it takes 5 minutes and costs approximately £5.

Bristol airport is about 40 minutes’ drive. There is a regular bus service linking the airport to Bath Bus Station every hour which takes 1 hour and 15 minutes and costs £17 return, while a taxi costs £43 to Bath and £38 back to the airport (special rates for our guests if booked directly by us).

We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your requirements pre-arrival, please call us on 01225 310472 or email us at
