Hand Picked Hotels was formed in 2001. Our vision was to create a collection of individual hotels, not a chain, where guests could enjoy the unique architectural features and interiors of these historic properties whilst experiencing a superb level of comfort and service.

Hand Picked Hotels is a collection of 21 very individual country house hotels located throughout the UK and Channel Islands. We have significantly invested in the hotels, not only to restore their beautiful architectural features and historical quirks but also as appropriate to introduce a more contemporary design.

Whether joining us for a leisure stay, wedding, meeting or spa treatment, our team will provide a warm welcome and the properties will leave you feeling inspired.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hand Picked Hotels.

Bathe in the beauty of Bath with a stay at Bailbrook House, one of only two Grade II listed hotels in the city.

Bailbrook House consists of the historic Mansion House and Bailbrook Court. The Mansion House has an array of individually styled feature bedrooms, lounges, Cloisters 2 AA Rosette fine dining restaurant and conservatory bar and lounge. The contemporary, adjacent Bailbrook Court offers modern classic and executive accommodation, the Lansdown restaurant where breakfast is served and a variety of meeting and function rooms in the fabulous Brunel Suite.
