Queensberry Hotel Bath Review. Step into a little piece of history when you walk through the doors of the charming Queensberry hotel in Bath. Perfectly located slap bang in the middle of of Bath World Heritage site.
What can I say other than ‘We loved it!”. A warm welcome from the friendly staff on arrival. Bags unloaded then the car was whisked off for valet parking all totally stress free. Our room was number 27, beautiful interior design and sparklingly clean. We loved the super comfy bed, see photo above and the massive bathroom. The classically proportioned Georgian rooms with high ceilings add to the feeling of space.
So many hotel bathrooms are a bit small but this was as big as our bathroom at home! Loved the fantastic tub, fluffy towels and White Company products.
How about booking the Four Poster Suite for a special birthday or treat?
The Suite has a massive bathroom and very chic bedroom with sitting area.
Queensberry Hotel has a fascinating history. It is comprised of four Georgian buildings originally built for the Marquess of Queensberry. Now, it is a privately owned hotel with all of the unique personal touches that only come with small boutique hotels.
How about drinks in this gorgeous bar?
Then, enjoy dinner at Michelin starred The Olive Tree Restaurant. The hotel restaurant is well worth a visit if you are in Bath or staying at the hotel. Chris Cleghorn is head chef and has devised a modern, clean menu. Classical Michelin with his own innovative ideas.
We enjoyed the five course tasting menu with wine pairing.
Smoked Eel for Mr Diva and Beetroot, Perle Las, Pecan and salted Lemon for me with a 2018 Pinot Blanc from Alsace.
Such a joy to see a menu choc full of healthy, locally sourced ingredients! Celeriac with White Truffle, lovage, apple, mustard and Spelt served with Gavi di Gavi, a light wine from Piedmont. A bread course followed. I have never had a bread course before!
Not one but two maincourses. Monkfish with BBQ Cauliflower, confit onion, mussel cream was a triumph and served with A Spanish wine Godello Crego e Monaguillo. We certainly tried some new (new to us anyway!) wines during the dinner. It is always interesting to try wines we would not normally choose.
Delicious locally sourced Duck followed. Photo above, just beautifully presented. The five courses concluded with Bahibe Chocolate, Hazelnut and Milk Jam accompanied with Ratafia Champenoise.
You can order the seven course menu at Olive Tree Restaurant, but I could not have eaten another thing. Sublime food, beautifully presented by talented chefs and friendly staff.
Lots of cosy sitting rooms to find a quiet space to relax during your stay.
Also, enjoy the delightful gardens at the hotel. However, it was raining during our stay so we could not enjoy the gardens.
After a good nights sleep we enjoyed breakfast. To be honest, I was not really hungry after such a big dinner but Mr Diva tucked into a delicious Full English Breakfast and Porridge for me with some Pastries.
