It is pretty much impossible to have a bad time in Bath. The architecture is stunning and the range of eateries are out of this world. We consider ourselves to be ever so lucky that it is just a mere 12 minutes from Bristol on the train!
As you can imagine, we were extremely excited last month when an invite popped into our inbox from Harington’s Hotel asking if we’d like to go along to a relaxing spa day in the fair city. A spa day you say? Who could refuse? We spent the next week or so looking forward to bubbling jacuzzi’s, sweltering steam rooms and lounging for hours in the sauna. The reality was a little different, as despite their outdoor hot tub being particularly lovely, it was an exceptionally chilly day! Bravo to the girls who jumped straight in though!
Whilst they bubbled away we did what we do best and sampled as much food and drink as humanly possible. Winner! And we were very well catered for indeed with trays of delicious canapes, an incredible hot chocolate bar and boxes a plenty of the very-posh-indeed Charlotte Brunswick handmade chocolates! Crikey!
After a tour of some of the unique rooms in the hotel, we sat down for a cheeky espresso martini before heading off to view a couple of the hotel’s separate apartments, located just a couple of minutes walk from the main hotel. Their location is absolutely perfect, right in the very centre of the city and their interiors are just smashing. Almost as smashing as the delicious afternoon tea which rounded off a lovely day with some of our favourite local bloggers. Cakes, scones and sandwiches…oh my!
It’s fair to say we were quite full by the time we left but as we sat on the train home we discovered some fudge courtesy of Sarah’s Heavenly Fudge – along with a small porcelain bath tub of course – in our goody bag. You’ll be relieved to hear that we found some extra room.
Thank you to all at Harington’s Hotel for the tour and the delicious afternoon tea. Thank you also to the lovely team at Lush for our wonderful hand massages, we can’t wait to head to Lush Bath Spa for some more pampering!
