The Bath Priory joins Relais & Châteaux


There’s reason to celebrate this September as The Bath Priory becomes a member of luxury hotel consortium, Relais & Châteaux.


We are delighted to announce that The Bath Priory has just been made a member of the Relais & Châteaux collection, becoming the only hotel in the city to be part of the luxury group! Featuring only the very best hotels worldwide, to become a Relais & Châteaux hotel each member hotel must not only display the very highest standards of hospitality and service, but also welcome guests with warmth and personality.

The Bath Priory is the only new UK member to be chosen to join the prestigious collection this year, a testament to every member of the excellent team at the hotel.

We are thrilled that The Bath Priory now joins Gidleigh Park, Buckland Manor and Amberley Castle as a member of Relais & Châteaux, four of only 31 members in the UK.
