The whole experience was delightful, very professionally run with a warm welcome. Stylish sitting room with fire. Breakfast menu excellent with a good variety of dishes well prepared. Friendly, helpful staff. Just a short walk over the lovely Pulteney...

Stayed at Dukes for two nights whilst visiting this fantastic city. After a long day of sightseeing and chilly weather it was great to come back to this delightful Georgian hotel. Our large room (Wellington) was lavishly decorated, very warm and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding, so much choice and cooked to perfection. Hotel run by a...

Delighted to read that in the midst of the Bath Christmas market we delivered ‘good value for money’. With consideration to ‘parking’, ‘room’, ‘breakfast’, ‘concierge service’ and a plethora of other enhancements we are wholly confident that we offer the very best ‘inclusive’ proposition in all of Bath. Our overarching intention is that our guests leave with a wealth of...

Our first stay at this hotel and, bot, were we pleased! The staff were, without exception, 1st class, from check-in to check-out. Spacious room with it's own hallway. Large and comfortable bed in a lovely room with a shower-over-bath en-suite. Breakfast was classy with top quality ingredients. A 3 minute level walk to Pulteney Bridge puts Dukes in the perfect...

Our intention is for Dukes to be the warm, welcoming county home of an old family friend – in the heart of Bath. The property is as you note a 225 year old Grade 1 listed lady – our fabric and décor are intended to reflect the heritage and grandeur of this rich Georgian history. We are delighted that all...

My husband booked a night at Dukes as a surprise anniversary treat. Not sure where to start with all the nice things to say about this lovely place. Room was beautiful, comfortable and elegant. Obviously super clean and huge attention to detail, from the furnishings to the robes etc. The staff were so friendly and couldn't go out of their...

With 17 unique rooms we have ample opportunity to meet the needs of a broad spectrum of guests. Our four poster suites offer that special ‘WOW’ factor so appreciated when celebrating an anniversary. Equally many of our rooms simply offer ‘space’ and ‘high ceilings’ so rarely found in a city hotel. Chuffed that you thoroughly enjoyed our ‘best in class’...

Dukes enjoys an ideal location within a wonderful city – our contribution is simply to enhance your stay in any which way !!

Do not judge this place by the external picture as this does not do justice to the interior, especially the exceptional furnishings. We were very well received, our room was ready early, and we were taken to our suite, the Beaufort, which was exceptionally well appointed. For the time of year we fully appreciated the separate sitting room when coming...

As you note all our rooms benefit from complimentary parking, cooked to order breakfast and a plethora of other ‘value adding’ amenities. The price difference between our rooms simply reflects the room size. We offer a couple of ‘snug’ rooms suitable for travellers, young lovers and those simply wanting an economic night’s sleep; through to ‘wow factor’ celebration and anniversary...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dukes stands on Great Pulteney Street - one of the finest boulevards in the Heritage City of Bath. Built over 200 years ago, Dukes comprises of two very generously proportioned town houses and has been engaged as a hotel and guest house for over 100 years.

Being less than a 10 minute flat walk to the centre, as a guest you can easily access all the attractions that Bath has to offer. ... more   less
