History of the hotel

Building work was started on Bailbrook House in 1790 by John Eveleigh for wealthy lawyer Dr Denham Skeet. However, due to the impact of the intervening wars, building was not completed until the early part of the 19th century.

Over the years the mansion house has been owned and lived in by many wealthy people, with one tenant being Lady Isabella King, who devoted her time to charitable and benevolent work, notably helping street beggars to 'save the innocent and the unprotected from the dangers attendant on idleness and poverty.'

Initiatives included a knitting school and a button-making school for children, along with widows of the armed forces. The charity was honoured in 1817 when Queen Charlotte visited Bailbrook House with her son the Duke of Clarence, who later became King William IV.

Amongst other patrons and visitors were three bishops, two duchesses, two marchionesses and William Pitt the Younger, who often stayed at the house.

A new extension was built in the 1970s by the Post Office, which converted the buildings to a training college and subsequently a college for air traffic controllers.

In 2012 Hand Picked Hotels purchased Bailbrook House, a grade II listed property, along with Bailbrook Court and 20 acres of private grounds. In 2013, the original mansion house was restored and refurbished, along with full refurbishment of Bailbrook Court.

Graham, Devon, stayed: April 2018

Night away in Bath to celebrate sons 7th birthday . Hotel spoilt him and made him very special . First class food and drink. Relaxing and enjoyable. Only slight critism was that room had no bath just a shower box so we had to upgrade at 15 for the night for a room with a proper bathroom.

KJ, Surrey, stayed: October 2017

Bailbrook house was a very nice hotel in a very convenient position with easy access to Bath.  The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and on the whole the food was good, some of the staff could have been a bit more helpful. I would recommend this hotel for the convenience and also the room was very clean.

Bailbrook House Hotel.

Michael, Cambridgeshire, stayed: September 2017

On the 23rd July we booked to stay at the Bailbrook House Hotel, Bath, through off peak luxury.com, for initially two nights commencing 22nd September, but found if we booked three we would get an automatic upgrade to the next available room type. We booked a package that included, Accommodation, an upgrade, Dinner, a pre-dinner glass of Champagne and Canapes per person (Value £15.00) and Breakfast.

We arrived at the hotel to find that they could not find the booking, after some minutes it was located in a file at the back of the reception, we checked in and were given a key to a room not in the Georgian style mansion that fronts the web site, but in a building that was a walk down a long corridor, turn left leave the main building, cross a short pathway into another building, into a lift to the third floor along another long corridor to find we had the basic classic, shower double, OK, but not an upgrade and definitely not what we were expecting, so we retraced our steps, down long corridors, lifts, across to reception where we asked for our upgrade. To be told the hotel was full. A manager was summoned.  The best she could do was put us in a suite in the Georgian Building for one night, we would have to repack in the morning and then go back to the original room for the second night, and then for the third night repack and go back to the suite. Not satisfactory I don't book three nights in a hotel to live out of a suite-case, however a reasonable compromise, the suite: Lady Isabella King was nice, but could have done with some attention to styling detail.

The next drama was trying to book a table in the Cloisters restaurant, they could not possibly fit us in before the following night at 9:00 pm, but we could eat in the Bar if we liked! We retreated to the room to consider our position and check local restaurants on the internet. However not to be outdone my wife had a word with the manager who told her that we should have been told that we were booked into the Cloisters restaurant (Basement) at 7:00 pm as part of the package. By this time it was 6:40 pm so we had a bit of a rush but made it.  The Champagne which arrived after a 20 minute wait was Prosecco, (not worth £7.50 a glass) when asked the name of the Champagne they served the Restaurant Manager had a memory failure but said it was something special they bought in for these occasions. I have drunk many kinds of Champagne and Prosecco over the years and I can tell the difference, and I don t like being lied to. The Canapes never arrived. The Starter arrived eventually, with so little food on the plate that if I did not know I would have sent it back and asked for a clean plate. I've washed up plates with more food on them!  The evening dragged on the main courses came and went, again nouvelle cuisine, food as Art not as sustenance, not that there was anything wrong with it, however there could have been more of it, likewise the desserts. We finally escaped at 9:00 pm, to paraphrase Churchill Never in the field of Human Gastronomy, has so little been eaten by so few, and taken so long .

In closing; the staff whilst charming as individuals struggle with poor systems, and lack of communication, (we had to chase down our baggage on two of the room moves), we were directed to the wrong restaurant for breakfast and had to go on a route march, (corridors and courtyards) to get to the other restaurant. There is too much work for the number of staff employed or on duty at any one time. The web site is a bit of a con, you really need to look through all the photographs carefully to get an idea of what you are really getting.  During our stay there were two largish weddings on at the same time, the bar was closed to residents but you could get a drink, eventually, in the lounge.  Would I go back? No. Would I recommend it? Only as a factory hotel, and definitely not for dining.
