A complimentary, glossy photographic book about Bath to take home.
BIG ON STYLE and strong on service, Grays Boutique B&B is fast becoming one of Bath's coolest places to stay. Just a ten minute walk from all the city sights, this chic new address in a quiet residential area offers panoramic views from Bath's southern slopes.
Bursting with out-of-the-box freshness and run with verve by its family owners, Grays Boutique B&B is a visual treat from the moment you cross the threshold. This huge Victorian villa dating back to 1876 has been beautifully refurbed in soothing tones and natural colours, while retaining many of its original features.
Set in a tree-lined street with lovely views across Bath city centre, Grays has everything you’d want in a posh boutique B&B. Both decor and furnishings have an elegant urban chic feel that works a treat in this lofty Bath stone Victorian house. You'll love the high ceilings, stylish mirrors, blond wood, clocks, teardrop chandeliers and reindeer rugs.
There's a spacious entrance hall with a sweeping staircase and a welcoming check-in area with a wood burner, armchairs and library-book wall coverings. This room leads to the bright and airy breakfast room, which in turn overlooks a small garden.
Elegant bedrooms – mostly white, and accented in blues, greens and gold – are set off with an eclectic mix of French antique style chairs and bedside tables, crisp white bedlinen and quirky touches. Plush fabrics and curtains ooze quality. Gleaming bathrooms are piled with huge fluffy towels and luxury REN shower gels, and there’s even a tea tray with Kit-Kats.
Ranging from snug doubles to a Deluxe Four Poster room, each of Grays' high-spec bedrooms has been stylishly done out and finished in calming shades of blue, beige and ivory. All are big on comfort, while retaining an intimate and homely feel.
Breakfast is served in the light and bright dining room, all done out in wide-awake blues and whites. Choices include smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, and oven-fresh pains au chocolat.
Grays Boutique B&B makes a great base for exploring Bath. You're within walking distance of the best of the city – whether you're here for the shops, the famous Georgian architecture, the streets walked by Jane Austen or the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Nothing is too much trouble at this immaculate and family-run boutique B&B, whose owners aim to provide spot-on service and a friendly home-from-home vibe.
