Welcome to the Bath Accommodation section. We believe that location is the most important thing here so we've separated hotels into four simple districts. We've also added options to choose national chains or small independent hotels which can often provide a unique stay in the city. We also include an average price guide plus an average hotel rating through our hotel booking partners. Further down on the page you can find budget accommodation - such as hostels and caravan sites - and other accommodation such as serviced apartments.

Hotels in Bath

Bath has a good number of hotels in the central area though prices are high at weekends and during the summer months. In the city centre you'll find the well known brands which are popular on Saturday nights with party goers. Further out of the centre you'll find quieter guest houses and hotels aimed at business travellers. Visitors may find staying in Bristol a cheaper option as it is only a fifteen minutes train ride away.

Staying in the city centre puts you at the heart of the action. With several well known national hotels you are right next to the main shopping area as well as Bath's bars and restaurants.

Hotels: Inner City

Just east of the city centre, Bathwick is the popular area for hotels and guest hotels, with some fine buildings to be found. Even more can be found near the Royal Crescent or if you don't mind the steep walk, Beechen Cliff in the south is a further choice.

Hotels: Suburbs

Staying on the outskirts of Bath can prove cheaper and easier if you are visiting by car. These hotels are great if you plan to spend most of your time visiting nearby towns and attractions. Public transport can be difficult though.
