It's been a while since we last checked in on The Gainsborough Bath Spa in the English city of Bath, which will be the only hotel in the United Kingdom to have direct access to natural thermal waters.
The 99-room hotel is now close to the finishing stages of development and has a projected opening date of spring 2014. It has joined the YTL Hotel portfolio, a luxury hotel group that also claims the Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur and the Pangkor Laut Resort, both in Malaysia. The Gainsborough will be the first Classic Hotel in the UK for the group.
A new five-star hotel will bring some friendly competition to the centuries-old Thermae Bath Spa, a naturally-occuring thermal spring which has been in use since the 8th century BC. The English city of Bath (named, appropriately, after its most distinctive feature) is planning a 98-room luxury spa hotel that will access the same hot springs as its world-famous neighbor, the Thermae Bath Spa.
According to This Is Bath, developers of this new property will drill a new borehole 75 meters below street level to access the base of Hetling Spring. Our only piece of advice: keep Steven Tyler away from the construction site; we know how he gets around slippery surfaces.
We've long been wondering what the rooms looked like at the brand new Halcyon Hotel in Bath, England but when the hotel opened last month, they were still displaying black and white sketches of the rooms on their website. We'd almost prefer a thumbnail photo to that!
However, the hotel has finally come through with plenty of pictures on its website. There are room photos for each type of room (that one above is the Studio room) as well as photos of the bar and the rest of the hotel.
