Good Hotel Guide Review
Rumoured to have been built for his mistress by the Duke of Wellington, although less imposing than its Hyde Park Corner namesake (aka No. 1, London), this is a fine Georgian house, run as a B&B by Nicholas and Claire Potts. Elegant bedrooms offer a range of options. Several have an ornate four-poster, such as The Beau, accessed from the garden, while Waterloo has a bathroom with slipper bath and walk-in shower. Copenhagen, recalling the Iron Duke’s horse, can combine with Mornington as a family suite. ‘Most rooms have views across Bath to the hills beyond.’ It’s all managed by the ‘delightful’ Miroslav Mikula and Katarzyna Kowalczyk. The ‘spacious and comfortable lounge’ is beautifully proportioned, furnished with antiques, paintings, a grand piano and perfectly coordinated Chesterfield. Here a fire burns on cold days, and guests can help themselves from the honesty bar – a proper counter, not just a sideboard tray. Breakfast, served in the lofty, light-filled dining room at tables laid with white linen and silverware, embraces locally sourced eggs, sausages and bacon. On fine days, a drink in the south-facing garden is a singular pleasure. More reports, please.
