Historical Elegance with a Cosy Charm and a Personal Touch
Located about 30 minutes walk from the City Centre, the Apsley House in Bath was built as the country home for The Duke of Wellington, after his momentous victory against Napoleon in the Battle of Waterloo. The rumour is that it was built as a place where he could keep his mistress of that time, as he was estranged from his wife years earlier.
The history behind the hotel is evident wherever you look, from the original oven downstairs to the Duke’s own master bedroom on the first floor. Spread over three floors (no lift access), all the bedrooms are individually and tastefully decorated – you just need to make a choice!
The magnificently proportioned reception rooms offer both style and comfort, with many period features complimented by the house being furnished with fine antiques and original oil paintings. The gardens are south-facing and enjoy spectacular views across the countryside, so they are perfect appointed for an evening aperitif or even a picnic on a summer’s day.
