4/7 Russel Street, Bath, Bath & Northeast Somerset, BA1 2QF
The Queensberry takes its name from the Ninth Marquess of Queensberry who laid down the rules for boxing and persecuted Oscar Wilde. One of the terraced houses that makes up this deceptively large hotel was the wild Marquess’s home when taking the waters in Bath.
The hotel makes a feature of its many staircases and landings and there are superb views across the city of Bath from its top rooms. Tea and coffee is available all day in the drawing room at The Queensberry. Toiletries are from the Mrs White Collection.
The hotel has made up its own set of quirky rules for the pleasant bar that spills out into the stone walled garden and a sign on the wall says it all: “Queensberry Rules”.
The high level of hospitality and friendliness of the staff is raved by a lot of guests. Public areas have been refurbished in 2017. When staying, do not miss a visit to the highly acclaimed Olive Tree Restaurant.
The Queensberry Hotel also has a Restaurant:
The Queensberry Hotel is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"Persuasion. Arriving in Bath feels like stepping into a film set. You could be mistaken for thinking that it was built just so that the BBC could adapt Jane Austen novels although Jane’s letters tell us she did not much care for the city. Nevertheless the climax of Persuasion, a story of love lost and found again, was set in Bath and filmed there in 1995. Amanda Root as Anne Elliot and Ciaran Hinds as Captain Wentworth were the lovers divided by interfering friends and family in possibly the best of all Jane Austen adaptations. The Assembly Rooms where Anne begs Captain Wentworth not to walk out on a recital is just at the bottom of Russell Street where sits the Queensbury Hotel. A number of scenes in the film were shot in this part of Bath, which is parallel with the famous Royal Crescent and delightful Oval.
Laurence and Helen Beere, who run this lovely 29-bedroom hotel, have taken its name from the fiery Ninth Marquess of Queensberry who laid down the rules for boxing. A list of their own more amiable “Queensberry Rules” is displayed in the stone walled garden. Ask for an attic room. The hotel offers some excellent views across Georgian Bath."
"The beautiful spa town of Bath is often overlooked when it comes to retail therapy, but it boasts six great shopping areas. Milsom Quarter offers some fantastic designer brands, whilst the Upper Town area hides an array of cute boutiques. SouthGate is the city’s newest venture, housing 55 big names, whilst quirky, arty finds can be explored in the bohemian Artisan Quarter. Whatever your preference, The Queensbury hotel has 29 comfortable bedrooms radiating eighteenth-century character. It also has a fantastic restaurant, The Olive Tree, and a lovely bar which in summer opens out in to the elegant walled garden."
"Bath International Music Festival, Bath, 22 May – 2 June. Bath’s annual music festival dates back to 1948 and is boldly eclectic. The programme includes classical music; jazz, world, folk, contemporary and electronic. Over the years the festival has had some celebrity artistic directors including Yeheudi Menuhin, Sir Michael Tippett, and Sir Colin Davis. There is also a very active fringe during the festival and a number of free events. Stay in comfort at the Queensbury hotel which is well situated for Bath’s Assembly Rooms as well at the city’s bars, shops and restaurants."
"The Queensbury is located in a fine, steep terrace of Bath stone houses just above the Assembly Rooms. Some of the 29 bedrooms retain their original eighteenth-century cornices and the views over Bath from the back rooms are splendid. For many the Queenbury is best known for its Olive Tree Restaurant where chef Nick Brodie is famed for his Asian fusion menu."
