With cobbled streets, echoes of former resident Jane Austen at every famous landmark and beautiful architecture, the city of Bath has everything you could wish for to sweep that special person off their feet for a day or two, and The Royal Hotel makes the perfect place to stay.
Breaks start at just £99 per person, and the hotel has all the character you’d expect from a Grade II listed property. Better still, you won’t even need to step outside if you’re happy to enjoy the plush surroundings of the hotel thanks to its newly refurbished restaurant. The restaurant was designed by Brunel himself, and it remains one of Bath’s most elegant places to dine.
With the decor of a classic Parisian brasserie, the restaurant makes just the setting for a romantic meal for two and you’ll find French dishes throughout the menu for those who fancy trying something extra special. Make sure you book your room before the Valentine’s rush.
