We were pleased to see the back of the snow in Bath last week. After several
cancellations at Ashley Villa due to the snow we are now seeing a pick up in
We have new Managers at Ashley Villa. Elias Constanteas and Adriana Stoica.
Elias, as you might guess from his surname is Greek but grew up in Canada
and Adriana is Romanian. Both have extensive experience in the hotel
industry and speak excellent English. We wish them well in settling into
Ashley Villa and you will find a a warm welcome from them both on arrival.
Bath Rugby hosted Exeter Chiefs in the LV cup last week end. We had good
sunny weather after the overnight gales and Bath came out winners 16-6
after two ties from Ireland scrum half Peter Stringer who really added some
zip when he came on at half time.
Ashley and Jette went out to celebrate Jette’s birthday over the week end
and had cocktails in Sub13 in George St where they offer 2 for 1 until 8pm.
It was packed , but we managed to get to the bar and the weather conditions
outside steered us to try a couple of “Dark and Stormy” cocktails, which
went down a treat and set us up for a great meal out with 18 friends.
The signs are going up around the town notifying everyone of the parking
restrictions for the Bath Half Marathon taking place on Sunday 3rd March. If
you are thinking of coming to Bath that week end we suggest you book now as
we have now sold most of our availability for that week end.
The big news this month however is that Queensberry Estates has bought a new
property in central Bath. The Bath Tap was a pub with a certain reputation,
but proved to be commercially unviable and was put on the market last
Autumn. We have acquired the freehold and intend to convert the property in
to two large self-catering flats. We are working hard on the designs to
bring two great stylish properties for groups to stay in Bath.
Watch this space for updates on the development, but we are targeting the
first flat to be finished this summer.
