Welcome to Dorian House

Enter an atmosphere of period charm in Dorian House, built of Bath stone circa 1880. Extensively refurbished in 2009 with Marble bathrooms and high pressure showers, a new Breakfast-Orangery and additional room "SLAVA" in memory of the great cellist Rostropovich. Characterful bedrooms have a restful ambience and views over the Royal Crescent or well-tended gardens. Some have traditional oak four-poster or superking size beds and are luxuriously decorated with opulent fabrics and stunning decor. Crisp cotton sheets, fluffy towels, tea/coffee making facilities, television, hairdryer and telephone ensure a comfortable stay.

The fine accommodation is complemented by a warmly decorated lounge with its open fireplace, intimate atmosphere and large comfortable sofas. Menus collected from the excellent restaurants in Bath allow guests to plan their lunch or evening meal. A delicious breakfast includes freshly baked croissants, fresh fruit, juices or a scrumptious full English breakfast.

Dorian House is 10 minutes walk from the centre and is perfect for those wishing to explore Bath's many attractions, including the Thermae Bath Spa, Roman Baths, Abbey and Royal Crescent. There are many beautiful gardens nearby and some of the prettiest villages in the country.

Owners, Kathryn and Tim Hugh have created a beautiful home with a musical influence and as Tim is the Principal Cellist with the London Symphony Orchestra, his solo recordings appear in the breakfast music library.
