Apsley House Hotel
Travel Blogs from Bath
This morning Graham and Christine (old family friends of the Eads) joined us for breakfast. It was a full house with Nicky, Ben and Abigail also staying. Poor Ben was all upset when he had to go off to school. Must have felt like he was missing out on all the fun. We headed over to Wells markets and wandered over to feed the ducks and swans in the moat. I never get tired of visiting Wells Cathedral. It's so pretty. It was freezing again today and I thought for sure ...
... rooms and lockers, and the ground floor was the thermal pool and spa. After we showered and changed, we all went to a pub for lunch. Food in this country seems really cheap - £6.95 for a sandwich, drink and chips! After lunch we hit poundland (equivalent of the reject shop really, but everything costs a pound). We then caught the bus back to the car, and pegged it home in the car. -1 degrees on the way home! Very chilly day. Back at the ranch, we ...
Today was another gorgeous day with clear blue skies and sunshine. We jumped in the car after breakfast and headed to Weston-Super-Mare. Took about 40mins, we parked and walked along the seafront, before walking out the pier. The kids had a ball on some of the rides (simulator, and dodgems). We even all went on a 4D ride which was really fun. Was really cold ...
Steve and I went for a run this morning (7.30km). It's funny having three layers on, with long tights, gloves and a hat. Very pleasant out running in the fresh winter air. We ran past a few people as we went along (said good morning etc), then Steve found out later in the day (when he was at the pub) that someone he used to know years ago had seen us and recognised him. After breakfast, Jen and I took Kendra & Abigail over to the Village for a ...
... like a great deal. Unfortunately, they didn’t need us but as you can imagine, our ears remained pricked for an airport announcement.
For the next few hours, we larked around outside trying to make the most of the sunshine.The flight was 9 hours and although we’ve done longer, this one seemed to really drag. We must’ve been ready to go home. Upon reflection, we’re ready to go back, RIGHT NOW.

Decided to take a weekend away in the lovely city of bath, we stayed in 2 different hotels, apsley house was the first. We were very warmly greeted, the room was spotless, very cosy on a cold day, the area was peaceful and relaxing, the veiws from the room window were amazing. In the morning, we were greeted with one of the best breakfasts I have had in a long time, the large pancakes and bacon were perfect!! The place gives you a very warm feeling, a very family run home, who visitors feel very welcomed into. I shall deffinetly be returning!
Simply a great place to stay
As long as you don't mind a mile's walk into the town centre, this is a lovely place to stay. Style, cleanliness, friendliness of a high order. The bed was luxuriously comfortable and the breakfast excellent - whisky in the porridge is a must. The hosts are charming and the bar is a nice place to start an evening. Recommended.
An excellent retreat, beautiful grand house, lots of character with tranquil surroundings. Definately visit again.
Apsley House Hotel (The Duke of Wellington's old home)
When the Duke, himself, stayed here he could not have enjoyed more comfort and better service.
Nicholas and Claire made you so welcome.
The house is elegantly furnished with a splendid drawing room and dining room, where we experienced a most choice English Breakfast on every morning of our visit.
The bedrooms too, are most grand with their great super-king sized beds. Bedroom No.3 was our particular favourite.
In all, a great place to stay when visiting Bath.
Bath's best hotel
Had a great weekend in Bath staying at Apsley House Hotel. Claire and Nicholas Potts were very warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them.
I would highly recommend Claire's breakfasts - a sumptious feast - enjoyed in an elegant yet comfortable atmosphere.
Our room was stunning with views across Bath and the Molton Brown products in the bathroom were a great treat to use!
We are already planning to return to Apsley house very soon for another weekend away in 'style'.
How wonderful it is when you make a reservation at a place ... and then not only does it not disappoint, but exceeds your expectations. Such is the Apsley House Hotel in Bath, UK. We read a paragraph about this place in a guide book and booked a room for our stay in Bath, hoping for the best. The web site looked promising.
The Best B&B we visited
This was one of the best recommendations we got on a B&B. A beautiful house overlooking the city of Bath. The accommodations and food were top notch and reasonably priced compared to the other B&Bs we visited. Very nice people.
Great Value, Absolute Delight
We stayed here in Sept. 2004. The house is resplendent with charm, as are the owners/operators. Our room was large, and although the bathroom was dated, it was perfectly clean. One of the best breakfasts I have experienced to date in England. The price was very reasonable for the UK. No complaints!
Wonderful, charming; best place of our trip
The Apsley House was an absolute delight! Nicholas and Claire Potts are the most charming hosts. We stayed there in July of 2003, and we're still remarking at how it was the highlight of our trip to the UK. The house was beautiful, the room was spacious and inviting (the one all the way on the top floor), and Claire's breakfasts were just superb. If you're thinking about going to Bath, you must stay here! (and thanks to Nicholas for letting me play his piano!).
