The Bath Priory, part of Andrew Brownsword Hotels, has joined Relais & Châteaux as one of 21 new additions to the hotel and restaurant association.
The hotel sits in four acres of gardens and comprises 26 bedrooms and seven suites, with a 3 AA Rosette restaurant headed up by executive chef Michael Nizzero, who joined in January 2017.
The walls of the five-star hotel, part of the AA Hotel Group of the Year 2017-18, are adorned with owners Andrew and Christina’s private art collections and the luxury property is home to the only spa to be run with French skincare brand, L’Occitane.
Bath Priory was one of 21 properties to join Relais & Châteaux in its latest recruitment drive, with hotels in Africa, Asia and Europe also joining the consortium.
International president of Relais & Châteaux, Philippe Gombert, says: “Whether chef, hotelier of restaurateur, every Relais & Châteaux member must be motivated by a passion for his or her craft. Each must share strong values and possess a human identity that is fully committed and driven by the desire to bring local cultures to life.”
The 21 properties join over 550 other world-class hotels and restaurants around the globe as part of R&C.
