About

Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel is a wedding venue nestled in the heart of Bath, England. This stunning Georgian hotel is surrounded by seven acres of exquisite private gardens that give it an air of seclusion and serenity. This, along with its convenient location, provides an exclusive atmosphere combined with ample opportunity to explore the historic city of Bath. The estate is a fairy tale setting for elegant special occasions of all sizes.

Facilities and Capacity

A sweeping, tree-lined driveway will take you to the entrance of Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel, where you will immediately be immersed in the venue's romance. Within, you will find numerous suites in which you can host your ceremony, drinks reception, and wedding breakfast. The smaller Kennet Suite has sparkling chandeliers and a white bookcase that gives it a cosy library feel. The similarly intimate Admiralty Suite boasts dark wood wainscoting and a grand mantlepiece, in front of which you can exchange your vows. The richly furnished Drawing Room will also be at your disposal for sipping cocktails with guests, before dinner in the spacious and sophisticated Avon Suite. If you prefer an outdoor ceremony, no spot is better than the Temple, a Romanesque chapel surrounded by manicured, verdant lawns. The grounds also make for picturesque backdrops in photographs with your loved ones.

Services Offered

The award-winning chefs at Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel will work with you to create gourmet cuisine for your wedding breakfast. After dining and dancing late into the night, you are invited to stay in the hotel's luxurious accommodation. The in-house beauty spa will also be available to you and your wedding party before and after the festivities.

A Story Book Wedding

Planning a wedding always has its challenges but doing so from a time zone five hours ahead (Atlanta & NYC in EST) only magnifies them. The team at The Macdonald House Bath Spa Hotel rose to meet those challenges every step of the way. We started a year out from our date with a FaceTime tour of the property and venues with Event Manager Benice Hampton. When we made our first visit to the property we met with Camy Mitchell to get some of the specifics in place and finalize pricing. Camy provided us with a go to list of vendors (Celebrant, D.J., Cake, Photographer) to connect with for our event.
We did Zoom call interviews and were really pleased with our final choices. About two months out from our Wedding Macdonald House added Cat Johnson to their team as a Wedding Specialist. Cat's detailed approach to the final planning stages was amazing. She managed last minute requests (rooms, meal selections, food allergies) seamlessly and insured that everything and everyone was in place for the Wedding Day. We had planned for an outdoor ceremony which involved special circular seating and floral arrangements in specific trees surrounding the ceremony. When Mother Nature intervened with heavy rains the morning of the Wedding, Cat implemented the back up plan she already had in place so that everything went seamlessly (even the floral arrangements were repositioned to the inside venues). We have had nothing but wonderful feedback from our friends and family who attended our wedding and The Macdonald House bath Spa Hotel has been front and center in that feedback. All of the staff from front desk to servers, bar tenders and Bell staff were absolutely Five Star. We very much look forward to return visits in our future England travels.

A great venue for a quality wedding reception

We recently used this venue for our wedding reception. The grounds were stunning and provided a sacred space in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city centre, despite the hotel being close enough to the station that access is incredibly easy. There was a perfect amount of space for the numbers we had, 80 seated and 130 in the evening. It felt full but not crowded. As for the honeymoon suite, its the kind of room you see in movies or royal households. Absolutely stunning and a great treat to be thrown in with the package. The food was excellent and many commented on it in particular. The staff were professional, helpful and made sure everything ran smoothly. What impressed me the most, a guest caused some accidental damage to a furniture and they wrote it off at their own expense, when they could have charged us. Thanks Cat for a great experience. I'm so glad this hotel decided to start a renewed focus on wedding events recently, its a great find.

Wedding night stay. Perfect hotel and staff!

We stayed at this hotel on the night of our wedding. From start to finish the hotel was perfect.The reception and concierge team were always on hand and more than happy to help. The room was fantastic with breathtaking views over the grounds when we woke up. We used the outdoor pool and then went to breakfast. Even though it was a busy Saturday morning the service and food was exceptional. We were wonderfully looked after by the hotel manager federico as we were by all of his staff. We can't wait to visit this hotel again when we have more time to enjoy all its wonderful facilities and it's great location in the centre of bath. Thank you to everybody at the hotel.

Golden Wedding Day

It was our Golden Wedding day and we could not have been more pampered - even a bottle of champagne in our room. Staff went out of their way for us. Thanks to everyone for making our special day so "special" at a wonderful location.

Wonderful Wedding Day

In late 2011, we booked the Wedding Package for the marriage of our daughter and her fiance which took place in July 2012. The Event Management Dept were all fantastic and guided us through the process, including the recommendation of local photographer, pianist and florist. The day itself was perfection. Everything was totally organised from the use of the Grange Suite for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready, the ceremony in the Vellore Room, the serving of drinks and canapes on the lawn to the wedding breakfast in the Avon Room. The meal was a triumph, the serving staff were great. We can't recommend the Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel wedding service highly enough. All the guests commented that the hotel and the grounds provided a gorgeous setting for a wedding. It was a wonderful wedding day and the sun shone......
