After The Gainsborough (www.ytlhotels.com; from £285) finally opened last year in Bath – thereby almost single-handedly recasting the patrician Georgian spa town (and Unesco World Heritage Site) in the eyes of discerning escape-seekers – it was only a matter of time before the competition arrived. Next month, the former Carfax Hotel will launch in its new incarnation as No 15 Great Pulteney (www.no15greatpulteney.co.uk; from £150), a 31-room conversion of three townhouses that promises both great bones (Grade I listings throughout) and great interiors (the work of Martin Hulbert, who has serious country house hotel form, being the man behind the designs at Barnsley House, Chewton Glen’s treehouses and Cliveden).
