Shabby Chic, anyone?
A tumble of technicolor blossoms welcomes you to the entrance of Pratt's. At the corner of Manvers Street and South Parade, the floral riot acts as a beacon to the hotel and its spacious sidewalk cafe.
Inside the visitor is treated to Georgian style as interpreted by Laura Ashley. While the public rooms on the ground floor are lavishly furnished in chintz, the florals (and the room sizes) fade as you head up the stairs. 4th floor rooms are perhaps best avoided by claustrophobics! Baths are smallish on all floors but come nicely equipped. Rubber duckies are part of the decor.
L100 for a single room seems a bit high, but consider the fact that DINNER, bed and breakfast are included. The in-house restaurant does serve up fresh seasonal specialties though ( note the name: SEASONS). Vegetarian dishes are also available.
Pratt's is within easy walking distance of the train and bus stations and close to everything.
Unique Quality: Built in 1743 as five separate townhouses, two of the buildings that now comprise Pratt's were already in service as boarding houses by 1791. Sir Walter Scott is said to have stayed here. In Jane Austen's day, visitors to Bath would have promenaded along the broad pavement out front to 'see and to be seen' -- hence the street's name: South Parade.
Today's visitor is more likely to enjoy 'people watching' which is fun to do on the spacious terrace in front of the hotel.
