Queensberry, Bath

Since this 29-room Georgian townhouse hotel was taken over by one of Bath's tourism directors and his wife in 2003, it's become one of area's top places to stay. The redesigned rooms are handsome and—for Bath, anyway—almost edgy: All are decorated in shades of chocolate, olive, pink, and rust, with mod wallpapers, halogen light fixtures, angular couches, and flat-screen TVs. Also redesigned: the popular below-street level modern British restaurant, the Olive Tree.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
The street and the building are quintessentially Georgian, but this 29-room hotel with bold retro-modern decor almost completely obliterates the historic continuity. The Queensberry occupies a house built in 1771, and today all that remains of the age of Beau Brummel is the graceful proportions of the rooms. You are greeted by brooding lighting, oxblood and slate gray walls, abstract Expressionist canvases, and odd assemblages of flowers in a series of reception rooms that lead to the Olive Tree restaurant or out to a garden. The rooms' flourishes of generic '60s design—shiny nested tables, plastic chairs, globe lamps drooping on long stalks—will not be to the taste of all, but the sound system and TV are state-of-the-art and the hotel is convenient to Bath's historic sights. —2006 Hot List
