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. The family-owned property was designed 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 carefully curated cocktail menu in the bar to the thoughtfully-designed bedrooms, 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 pan-seared Cornish scallop with avocado carpaccio, chilli, compressed mango and cucumber, and Creedy Carver corn fed chicken breast and leg Kiev with sweetcorn purée, charred corn, and black garlic sauce.
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 salt and pepper squid sit alongside burgers, fish of the day, and risotto.
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.
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.
Stroll for just a few minutes and cross the River Avon via Pulteney Bridge before heading to Walcot Street, the artisan quarter. The Abbey and Thermae Spa are within easy walking distance, as is The Royal Crescent. For views of the city and countryside head to Alexandra Park, and food lovers should book a tour with Savouring Bath.
