Welcome to Pratts Hotel, Bath
Built in 1743 by one of the city's most famous architects, John Wood the Elder, Pratt's Hotel has been part of Bath's heritage for more than two centuries and represents a great location for a short break or weekend stay in Bath to explore the city's many historic attractions.
The hotel was originally five town houses, but as early as 1791 two of those were being used as boarding houses. Some famous occupants over the years include Sir Walter Scott, William Wilberforce and Dame Peggy Ashcroft. In 1910 Mrs Frederick Pratt bought the boarding house at 5 South Parade, and by 1917 the property was registered as 'Pratt's Hotel'. The building itself has many interesting features, with a variety of character rooms, a classic Georgian restaurant and lounges with open fireplaces, and a bowed landing on the staircase, designed to enable 'chairmen' to carry clients back to their rooms in their sedan chairs after a treatment in the city's famous spa baths.
With its famous Roman baths, Abbey, classic Georgian architecture such as the Royal Crescent and the remarkable Thermal Bath Spa (opened in 2006), this is a city best explored on foot. Bath offers a diverse range of restaurants, theatres and pubs, together with museums such as the Museum of Costume and the Jane Austen Centre. Make Pratt's Hotel your choice for a relaxing weekend break in Bath.
