The Halcyon in Bath, United Kingdom

November 4, 2010 by

The Halcyon hotel is a 21-room, 5-star, luxury boutique hotel in Bath, United Kingdom.
This nice hotel, one of the best in Bath, is located in a gorgeous Georgian townhouse right in the heart of Bath, where you have access to all the major tourist attractions. You can visit the Roman Baths, the Pultney Bridge, or the Thermae Spa. You can also head to Bath Abbey, the Sydney Gardens, or the Cleveland House, as well. The hotel staff is happy to recommend where to go in Bath, and will even direct you to places that are off the beaten path.

The Standard Room’s name is about the only thing that’s standard about these bedrooms. Each one features a gorgeous 1700 pocket sprung bed, sumptuous soft fabrics, crisp yet cosy sheets, fluffy pillows and a tall, dark, handsome 32″ plasma TV. Located mainly on the top floor with intimate loft rooms, you’ll find all the quirky character you’d expect from a Georgian town house. Standard Rooms are perfect for that weekend getaway from the city or business stop over vacation- not massive but nor is the price.

Individually crafted by an award-winning interior designer, all eight standard rooms include a walk-in shower, decked out with Philippe Starck and Hansgrohe fitting and White Company products. For instant invigoration, step under the rain style showerhead and let the waters of Bath work their wonders.

We all deserve a little luxury every once in a while: birthdays, holidays, weekends, or just because it’s St Bernard’s day and, hey, what the heck? Whatever your reason, the Deluxe Superior rooms are still comfortable, but will give you a little bit of extra space than the Standard. Due to the hotel being an old quirky historic building, these rooms vary in size and shape and have either a Twin or Double bed configuration.

These nine superior rooms include a large comfotable1700 pocket sprung bed, fluffy pillows, gorgeous soft furnishings and a 32″ plasma TV. Bathrooms feature walk-in showers with sleek Philippe Starck and Hansgrohe fittings, the torrential rain style showerhead, divine White Company products and you’ll get the added headspace that comes with first and second floor tall Georgian ceilings.

Batchelor pad, crash pad, city launch pad? The four Studio Rooms give you all Halcyon’s trademark style, with a bit more independence. Each one includes a small kitchen area for rustling up mid-afternoon snacks or late-night nibbles, and there’s a handy seating area for chomping on a croissant or tucking into a takeaway platter.

As with all the rooms, Studio furnishings include a large 1700 pocket sprung comfortable bed, fluffy pillows, sumptuous soft furnishing, a 32″ plasma TV and luxurious White Company products. And your bathroom is decked out with slinky Philip Stark and Hansgrohe fittings, stroke-able Italian tiles, topped off with the reviving rain style showerhead.

Dining includes a selection of decadent pastries, the finest bespoke roasted coffee, award winning breads, naughty treats and healthy fruits and other breakfast goodies in this nice hotel’s large, comfy lounge for an affordable fee.

By day, the Halcyon hotel bar is a lively Bath city centre coffee lounge complete with inviting armchairs and modern sofas. By night, the mood becomes more soulful, with eclectic music and equally inventive cocktails. More than just a hotel bar, this inviting Bath city centre cocktail bar and coffee lounge is fine way to spend time in Bath.

The hotel itself has a young, hip atmosphere and features a café, where you can order coffee and tea during the day, and something a bit stronger in the evenings. There is also an outdoor lounge, where you can relax with a drink or a good book. The hotel offers bicycles, which you can use to explore the city. Whatever your agenda, you will enjoy your time here at this wonderful, luxury boutique hotel.
