Mini guide to Georgian Bath
Where to stay
In a Grade-I listed townhouse in the centre of town, the Halcyon is style on a budget. The 21 rooms are off-white with splashes of colour, bathrooms have walk-in showers, Philippe Starck fittings and The White Company toiletries. There are great cocktails to be had in the bar, Circo, and breakfasts are organic (2/3 South Parade; from £69).
Located in a terrace of townhouses, no two rooms at The Queensberry Hotel are the same: some have modern fabrics, muted colours and throws, others large seating areas and feature fireplaces (Russell St; from £112).
No 4 Sydney Place, a nicely modernised 18th-century Grade-II listed Georgian apartment, was once the home of Jane Austen herself (4 Sydney Place; two-night minimum stay from £159 per night).
