This magnificent Grade I Palladian style Town House Hotel has been transformed to restore its original Georgian splendour combined with comfort and style.
The rooms are tastefully decorated with period furniture, prints
and portraits. In winter a log fire welcomes guests into the lounge and in summer
a peaceful patio garden leading from the stylish Cavendish Bar provides the
perfect place to relax.
It was the Romans who first utilised the only natural hot spring in England when in 43AD they founded Aquae Sulis as a garrison frontier town and soon after developed a temple and baths complex, the remains of which can still be viewed today.
It is in Great Pulteney Street that Dukes Hotel was built in the 1790's, originally as two private houses. The houses were combined into an hotel called St. Monica's in 1919 and in 1985 the name was changed to Dukes Hotel.
In recognition of the City's unique history and treasures, Bath was designated a World Heritage Site in 1987. Nearly 2,000 years after the Romans first found the spring which has shaped the history of Bath, 260,000 gallons of spring water continues to rise every day at a temperature of 46.5C.
