As a Leading Hotel of the World, the five-star Gainsborough Bath Spa is YTL's first hotel in the United Kingdom. Paying homage to its colourful history, the hotel is designed by New York based Champalimaud Design to be welcoming, elegant, vibrant and social - a modern interpretation of a classic design which will provide a meaningful and enduring contribution to the life of the city. It is positioned right in the epicentre of Bath, close to all visitor attractions, shops and theatres. 

Subtly referencing period details, the rooms are custom furnished to incorporate all the travellers’ needs as well as looking stylish. The 87 guest rooms and 12 suites include luxury amenities such as Nespresso machines, Robert’s radios and the most comfortable beds in Bath. 

Fed by Bath’s natural thermal waters, Spa Village offers a contemporary perspective on the city's thermal water heritage. Coupled with the historic use of aromatherapy, this Spa, set beneath a glass atrium, features three thermal baths, traditional and infrared Saunas, steam room and eleven treatment rooms. In recognition of its spa heritage, the award-winning spa group with its Malaysian origins also presents an original selection of signature therapies.

The Gainsborough is home to the Three AA Rosettes restaurant, Dan Moon at The Gainsborough. Dan enjoys creating exquisite cuisine inspired by fresh, seasonal ingredients in a sophisticated yet informal environment.  His style of classical flavours with modern techniques, beautiful presentation and Asian influences helps to curate a dynamic menu that touches all of the senses. The Canvas Room and Bar, also offer the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon tea or cocktail at your leisure.

From weddings to private dinners and boardroom meetings, The Chapel and Somerset Room provide two stylish settings which can accommodate a range of functions.
