Just before the New Year I popped into the very unique No.15 Hotel on Bath’s famous Great Pulteney Street for a quick spa day/facial.
As a side note, if you’re just here for a treatment do check out the rest of the hotel and all its quirky features. There really is nothing else like it and it can’t help but bring a smile to your face.
The hotel has 40 bedrooms and is based in a stunning Georgian house within walking distance to all of the City of Bath’s main attractions
This time I headed down to the newly-renovated Spa15 for an hour in their hot-tub and sauna, followed by a relaxing facial in one of the nicest treatment rooms I’ve ever been in.
As with anything housed in an historic building there are limitations as to what can be done with the space. With that in mind however, they have done a beautiful job. I love that they have kept the beautiful stonework exposed and haven’t squared off the curved walls of the changing rooms, which are each in different coloured mosaic tiles.
This is not an extensive spa so don’t go expecting to while away several hours here (30mins to an hour should do) and those who are tall may find the vaulted ceilings and sauna a bit of a stoop. However for me, it was lovely – even more so because I had it to myself.
I then went down the stunning blush corridor to the Porcelain Room (each of their treatment rooms has a different theme) for my Natura Bisse 3D Collagen Facial.
My therapist was lovely and clearly knew her stuff. Although not a life-changing facial (but then what is?) it was extremely relaxing and I did leave with, and have for several days afterwards the most even skin tone I’ve had for a long time (no foundation necessary).
Would I have a treatment here again? Yes! And I would love to have it in their Coral Treatment Room.
I’ll also be back another time for cocktail hour.
