Queensberry Hotel Bath Review – feel like you’re in Bridgerton!

Queen’s in the name – this Queensberry Hotel Bath review will show you how you can feel like a monarch in one of the UK’s best cities!

Bridgerton has taken the world by storm in the last few years, but what if I told you that you could feel as if you’re in the ‘ton by spending a night at Bath’s Queensberry Hotel? 

The boutique-style Queensberry Hotel is located near Bath’s city centre, a stone’s throw from The Circus. 

Set in four townhouses that have been made into one building, The Queensberry Hotel fuses individuality (no two rooms are the same) with luxurious hospitality. 

Stay a night in one of their gloriously comfortable rooms, sip on prohibition-era cocktails in the speakeasy bar, dine at the attached Olive Tree Restaurant (the only Michelin star restaurant in Bath) and wake up to a full breakfast before exploring the glorious city of Bath. 

Here’s my full review of Queensberry Hotel in Bath! 

I received this hotel stay free of charge in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 

About Queensberry Hotel

From the second you step into Queensberry Hotel, you’ll be graced with high-end hospitality that leaves no stone unturned. 

The hotel dates back 20 years – although the buildings hark from the Georgian era – and is owned by Laurence and Helen Beere. They aimed to create a different style hotel from the cookie-cutter norm, giving each guest a bespoke, unique experience while maintaining a high standard of service. 

My room

After arriving at Queensberry Hotel, I checked in in the drawing room (which offers tea and coffee-making facilities and welcomes guests to come and go as they please) and was shown up to my room, which was number 28. 

As I pushed open the door, I immediately noticed a striking roll-top bath in the large bathroom (there was also a free-standing shower), and the bedroom featured a plush king-sized bed, seating area with a small coffee table, desk and dressing table and tasteful decorations. 

Chocolates were provided on the coffee table, along with a note welcoming me to the hotel. I already know Bath well (check out my full guide here) but if I didn’t, there were recommendations for things to do, along with an invitation for concierge-style booking facilities if necessary and a personalised note welcoming me to the hotel. 

The cocktail bar

The cosy fully-stocked cocktail bar, scattered with plush blue seats, features a menu of Prohibition-era cocktails (minus the bathtub gin!) and 20th-century cocktails – although the bartender is happy to make any classics. 

I went for the Bramble, a gin-based berry cocktail which was expertly made by the bartender and tasted sweet and delicious, served with olives and nuts.  

No room in the cocktail bar? The hotel has a few other rooms, including the lovely “snug”, a smaller space that’s perfect for groups.

There’s also a walled garden that runs along the length of the four terraced houses. In the winter, it’s used less but I can imagine it’s a wonderful suntrap in the summer months! 

The Olive Tree Restaurant

After refreshing, I headed down to the Olive Tree Restaurant. The only Michelin-star restaurant in Bath, this eatery is loved by locals and tourists alike – but hotel residents can enter without needing to go outside, whereas other diners use the entrance from the street. 

The hotel offers a seasonal four, six or nine-course tasting menu, with meat, vegetarian or vegan options on offer. 

Here’s the vegetarian menu, which is what I had (the menu changes seasonally but this should give you an idea!).

I opted for the six-course option, choosing the cucumber with wasabi, Jerusalem artichoke, ravioli, Sharpham Park farm spelt, frozen driftwood cheese and islands chocolate. I added the wine pairing (although opted for four tastings of wine rather than six), which was explained and poured out by the in-house sommelier. 

All courses were delicious, with interesting flavours and a fusion of ingredients. My favourite was the ravioli and islands chocolate dessert! 

Sleeping at Queensberry

A luxurious bathroom featuring a clawfoot bathtub filled with bubbles, set against bird patterned wallpaper and olive subway tiles, reflecting a hint of opulence.

After dinner, I made the short journey back to room 28, where I drew a warm bubble bath before climbing into my bed, which felt like a cloud. While it is an older building, soundproofing worked well and I drifted off to sleep very quickly. 

It’s worth noting that tea and coffee-making facilities aren’t provided as standard in the rooms, but there are tea and coffee stations throughout the hotel and if somebody would like a kettle and tea/ coffee, they can request this at the reception. 

Breakfast at Queensberry

A comforting bowl of porridge served with a drizzle of honey on a rustic wooden table, suggesting a warm start to a cold morning.

After a refreshing night’s sleep, I headed down to the restaurant for breakfast. 

The menu boasted full English fry-ups (meat or veggie), eggs benedict or simpler items like porridge (which could be made with oat milk) and fruit – being still quite full from the feast the night before, I just opted for porridge and fruit! 

Guests who have an included breakfast package can choose up to £25 worth of breakfast supplies. 

Other rooms at the Queensberry

I had the chance to explore some of the other guest rooms while staying at the Queensberry – each was decorated tastefully with its own flair, but there was a common thread of stylishness and luxury running through them.

Checking out at the Queensberry

All too soon, my stay at the Queensberry ended – I was invited to store my bags while I saw some parts of the city and again, asked if there was anything I needed – the friendly reception staff are on hand to order taxis or arrange activities if required. 

I headed off to Bath Abbey for a Tower Tour and to Number One the Crescent to see the museum; follow my Facebook page or join my newsletter to see my posts about these (coming in the next few weeks!).
