We had wanted to stay at this hotel for a while, their website is just so colourful and inviting and the hotel looked super quirky and cool, so we were super excited for our stay at The Bird.
The Bird, Bath has a carpark, so we arrived in the morning, parked up and decided to hire bikes for the day to explore Bath and the surrounding areas. We then returned in the afternoon to check in which is available from 3pm onwards. The reception is gorgeous, it has bright sofas and a super cool retro Smeg fridge with milk in your tea and coffee.
There is a also a sweetie station where you can get pic and mix so we were in our element, you should have seen our excitement when we spotted them!
We were taken to our room (room 7) by the lovely receptionist who informed us when breakfast was and that we needed to leave our keys at reception when leaving the hotel.
Room 7 was gorgeous, it had amazing views of Bath, a beautiful sofa which had an incredible pattern on it! It was as if they knew that we loved the colours mustard and grey! It also had a stunning chandelier and beautiful side lamps. We had a twin room but we imagine it would be used as a double as well.
We loved the double window in our room as it let in so much natural light, something that we love and often find you don’t always get in a hotel. We had a great view as well and enjoyed watching the sunset form our bed.
We had a large bathroom that was super clean! We love it when a hotel has good quality shampoo and conditioner and The Bird certainly does. The provide you with Aromatherapy products including; shampoo, conditioner, body wash and moisturiser.
There is a Nespresso machine in the room with the cutest espresso cups! There is also a selection of pods to choose from so you can have your favourite coffee. There was also the usual tea bags and biscuits to snack on!
Breakfast is served 7:30-10AM Monday to Friday & ?? at the weekend. Breakfast is served on the ground floor which you can access form the Reception. The breakfast room was simply lush with lots of cool decorations including feathers on the ceiling and other bird decorations dotted around oh and of course the wall paper had birds on it!
There is soooo much to choose form on the breakfast buffet including; fruit, cereal, croissants, yoghurt & granola. There are also the sweetest mini jugs of apple and orange juice which we loved.
Rach was happy as the granola didn’t have any nuts in it! She doesn’t like nuts and often cannot enjoy the delicious granolas on offer but at The Bird she could well and truly tuck in!
Tea, coffee and toast is brought to you table and then you can choose a hot item from the menu. Of course we opted for a jug of coffee, the best way to start the day!
Annie went for the scrambled eggs and salmon and Rach was awkward as ever and went for the Smashed Avo on Sourdough but changed the poached egg for smoked salmon. They were more than happy to change this for her. When we heard someone order an eggs benedict but instead of the eggs asked for a mushroom I knew I wasn’t alone (HAHA!)
The portion sizes were absolutely massive, they are so generous with the smoked salmon and avocado! We certainly left feeling very content, it was the best start to our morning!
There is also a conservatory area that was so bright, there were arm chairs that were super comfy, and it was the perfect settingto enjoy a coffee. Through the conservatory there is a garden that has recently opened. They are still currently getting it ready for summer!
The Bird was just as beautiful at night that we just had to take a snap when we returned from our evening meal.
We would highly recommend booking to stay at The Bird when in Baht, the location is superb, you are a little out of the centre so it’s nice and peaceful but it is only a short walk into the centre of Bath for all of the shops, bars and restaurants.
The staff are also great, they are so so so friendly and welcoming and do everything to ensure you have the best stay and leave feeling happy.
Honestly, we could not fault our stay and we cannot wait to return!
