For a Weekend of Relaxation, the Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel
January 29, 2018
The Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel is located in the beautiful historic city of Bath. As you drive through Bath you are surrounded by the elegant 18th –century Georgian architecture, this five star hotel is perched half way up Sydney road giving panoramic views of this beautiful city. As you turn the corner you pass through the impressive gates and are met with the most beautiful landscaped gardens which complement the amazing honey coloured stone building of the hotel. With 131 luxurious rooms to choose from with breath-taking views, I was excited to see which room I’d be spending the night in.
On arrival through the main entrance I am met by a pure scene of elegance, with beautiful fresh flowers everywhere and a roaring fire. The magnificent grandeur of the reception area does not disappoint after driving through this historic city.
I immediately head for the spa and I’m met by Aileen the Spa Manager who gives me a warm welcome and offers informed and professional advice on the treatments. The spa reception area immediately relaxes you with an abundance of fluffy towels, dressing gowns and fresh lemon water to start your relaxation.
Lauren my beauty therapist showed me through to a warm and tranquil spa room to start my prescription facial. I can highly recommend Lauren as she was thorough and very informative and even gave me inside tips on my beauty regime. After my rejuvenating facial I was shown to the relaxation lounge where I could sit and sip herbal tea whilst I read my magazine, pure wind-down time.
Next to experience was the pool, thermal suites and hydropool. The outdoor pool was the perfect temperature to float and relax whilst the bubble shoots gently massage you. The infrared sauna and salt rooms are worth a visit to complete your spa experience.
The afternoon was perfectly finished with afternoon tea served in the lounge overlooking the grounds. The traditional sandwiches were exquisitely placed next to mouth-watering miniature desserts, finished off with traditional warm fruit scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream – just beautiful. I have to say the miniature crème brulee is the best I’ve ever tasted; it’s worth a visit just to experience this!
After thoroughly refuelling and relaxing I checked into my plush spacious room with stunning panoramic views of beautiful Bath. I was provided with lush fluffy towels and a wonderfully comfortable king-size bed.
My evening dinner was accompanied by a talented Pianist ensuring a light and pleasant atmosphere whilst I ate my truly scrumptious three course dinner. The waiting staff offered great knowledge on the wines to choose and recommended the perfect glass for each course. The dining area was beautifully elegant and gave a real sense of grandeur to the evening.
I would highly recommend this luxurious hotel for a mini spa break and why not even stay longer to venture into beautiful Bath and experience its Roman Bath and natural hot springs. A stunning hotel in a beautiful part of the country, well worth visiting.
