Bath Hilton hotel facelift brings ‘secret garden’ to heart of the city

A full refurbishment of the former Hilton Bath City Hotel has been completed and includes a “secret garden” tearoom overlooking the Pulteney Bridge.

All the rooms and public areas of the hotel have had a complete rebrand, and are ready for their first guests.

The new interior plays on the city’s history, and reputation for elegance; combining crisp, modern lines with nostalgic features.

A bar and terrace which looks out onto Bath’s streetlife are part of the new design, along with an open-plan ground floor.

The tearoom overlooking the bridge has been adorned with hanging plants to give an outdoor feel with indoor comfort.

Ashley McCabe, the lead interior designer, was inspired by the city’s history, from Roman to Georgian times, and let it guide her vision.

She said: “Taking its inspiration from the heritage of Bath, the interior will create a visual connection for guests, through subtle nods, to a bygone age of elegance.”

She added: “Layers of discovery woven through the design celebrate the charm and character of the locality.”

The hotel was refurbished by ICA and rebranded as a DoubleTree by Hilton.
