Ian & Christa Taylor
The Abbey Hotel is fully independently owned by the Taylors, who purchased the property in 2012, and in since then they have totally transformed the property. As experienced hoteliers, Christa and Ian previously owned award-winning properties Cotswold House Hotel and The Noel Arms Hotel both in Chipping Campden.
They came to Bath looking for a new challenge and have thrown themselves into the development of the Abbey Hotel and into the very fabric of the city, supporting the many festivals and events throughout the year, and of course following Bath Rugby. Their interaction with Bath has been pivotal in putting the hotel, Allium restaurant and Artbar on the map locally.
Last year’s refurbishment of Allium and Artbar provided the opportunity to showcase their personal style, love of art and sense of fun. Creating two of the most elegant venues in the city, the look and ambience are now a perfect compliment to the warm hospitality the Taylors have engendered in their team and the great food and drink offering that has been developed.
Plans for the Abbey are by no means complete, Ian and Christa will continue to develop the offering and extend their own special brand of genuine, warm hospitality.
Ian comments “ We are keen to welcome people not just as transient guests but as friends, we genuinely want people to enjoy their stay in the city and have the best possible experience of the Abbey Hotel”
