The announcement came at the the Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards 2018…
YTL Hotels has announced that The Gainsborough Bath Spa has been awarded three prestigious placings in the 21st Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards. The five-star Bath hotel, YTL Hotels’ first to open in the UK, placed second in Top UK Hotel Spas, placed ninth in Top UK Holiday Hotels and included in The World’s Top 100.
The annual Readers’ Travel Awards ranks the best hotels, resorts, cities, islands, airlines and cruise lines in the world. The longest running of its kind, the Awards are one of the most prestigious recognitions of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel”. With millions of reader submissions and tens of thousands of comments this year, The Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards allows travellers to submit hotel and resort ratings, which are subsequently compiled into a list of winners.
With interiors by Alexandra Champalimaud, the 99-key hotel is ideally located in the renowned city of Bath, which placed fourth in Top UK Cities. This delightful hotel is just minutes away from the city’s attractions, shopping and restaurant districts. As well as the award-winning Spa Village Bath, the hotel features Dan Moon at The Gainsborough Restaurant, which has received three AA Rosettes and featured in the Tatler Restaurant Guide in the past year.
The only member of The Leading Hotels of the World in the South West England, this holistic landmark is one of YTL Hotels’ most significant openings to date. Today, The Gainsborough Bath Spa stands as YTL Hotels’ first Classic Hotel in Europe, as well as the sole hotel in the UK to have exclusive access to Bath’s natural thermal mineral waters.
Editor of Hotel Designs Hamish Kilburn recently checked in to The Gainsborough to review its interiors. Review coming soon.
