Mrs P and I have stayed at Apsley House on five or six occasions over the years and although we have stayed elsewhere on breaks in Bath (and lovely it was to) I simply can't envisage doing so again when visiting this most beautiful of cities. After our long drive to Bath closing the door to our room feels like arriving home.
This is an utterly gorgeous hotel; all grace and charm with high ceilings, large windows and Georgian elegance. Over the years we've peeked around the doors of several rooms (they were unoccupied!): each individually furnished and tastefully appointed. We've always stayed in the Romantic Room on the first floor which has a vast four poster bed and a slipper bath. Pure luxury.
The charm doesn't end with the building either. The managers, Gillie and Raphael simply couldn't be more friendly and their passion for the hotel shines through.
In terms of location it is true that the hotel is not central but through a combination of walking, buses and taxis we've never had the slightest issue. It is where it is; and perfect it is too. So perfect in fact that we've taken to doing the "old persons' routine" of booking for the same weekend next year on departure. On that note - see you December 2014!
