Bath hotels have also once again been rated as among the most expensive to stay in the country by a national survey by the website Hotels.com
The website’s Hotel Price Index claimed the average cost of one night in a hotel in Bath was £112 making it the second most expensive city in the country, beaten only by St Andrew’s, where on average it is said to cost £133 to spend the night.
London came in third with the average price at £111 - £2 down on last year.
Alison Couper, from Hotels.com, said: “It is a great compliment to all that Bath has to offer visitors that they are prepared to pay quite a high price to stay in the city. Of course, the average price disguises the broad range of accommodation on offer, from bed and breakfasts to luxury five-star properties.”
