Artistic additions to Abbey accommodation

Bath’s Abbey Hotel has unveiled new, improved rooms as part of its ongoing refurbishment.

The new arts-inspired bedrooms are the latest projects to be completed at the hotel which was bought by KE Hotels just over a year ago. Other improvements include the redevelopment of the ArtBar and the launch of the exclusive brasserie, Koffmann & Mr. White’s.

Echoing Bath’s thriving arts scene, a selection of the hotel’s rooms have been given a makeover to cover the creative themes of film, art and photography. From modern lighting to framed artwork and vibrant colour schemes, the concept for each bedroom is based on the city’s connections to art and culture over the years.

Josh Watts, General Manager at the Abbey Hotel, said, “We’re really happy with how the new rooms look. This is the latest in a line of renovations to modernise the hotel and make the Abbey a thriving cultural hub for guests. The balance of the newly designed modern rooms alongside our more traditionally styled rooms means we can cater to a variety of different guests.

“Bath is home to an array of independent galleries and festivals that promote local artistic talent, something we’re really proud of at The Abbey. The hotel has long been known for hanging work by local artists in the rooms, restaurant and bar. A quintessentially Bath hotel, The Abbey is the perfect place to stay to get the most of what our beautiful city has to offer.”
