The Halcyon

2/3 South Parade, Bath, BA2 4AA 01225 444 100

We say

The Halcyon is right amid the action: the train station is two minutes in one direction, the Abbey two minutes in the other; spa, river and fancy shops are all on the doorstep. Which makes this 21-room, slickly designed boutique hotel a good city base. Located in a fine, Grade-I listed Georgian townhouse, the Halcyon is traditional on the outside, but modern within – colours are contemporary, bathrooms have Philippe Stark fittings and White Company smellies, TVs are 32" plasmas. Four of the rooms are studio suites, with small kitchenttes in case you fancy raiding the Guildhall Market for goodies rather than eating out. There's no dedicated restaurant, but Circa, the in-house bar, serves cocktails and pizzas – either in the vaulted cellar or on the spacious terrace out front.
