Why the Bird?

A hotel with a flourish of creative genius

We are a properly lovely hotel that is fun loving and a little bit ‘out there’ when it comes to design and décor.

In a Nutshell

Foodies to the core, any meal here is something rather special. Bedrooms are a big seller, all rather ravishing, and our staff are really great hosts.

Another key seller is our location. We’re slap bang in the centre of Bath but just a few streets away from the crowds. And just a few minutes’ saunter from the hotel you will find the best-loved world heritage locations such as Great Pulteney Street, The Victoria Art Gallery and the famed Pulteney Weir.

On The Polite Side of Pulteney Bridge

We are also within easy walking distance of Bath Rugby, The Roman Baths, Jane Austen Centre and Thermae Bath Spa as well as the city’s renowned fine dining restaurants and boutiques.
