Bath Priory Hotel, Bath $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Set amid four acres of landscaped grounds near the Royal Crescent, this rambling 19th-century stone inn feels more country house than townhouse. The lounges and 33 bedrooms are done up in English manor chintz, with a ecclesiastical motif running throughout. The rates include breakfast and use of the spa's indoor colonnaded pool (but no treatments). The restaurant, headed by Michelin-starred chef Chris Horridge, turns out excellent seasonal menus based on local produce.
