turtle bay, Italian & a blizzard

MARCH 1ST – 3RD

How beautiful was the snow? I can not believe that right at the beginning of March our gardens were covered in snow. When the snow hit Somerset I was driving up for two nights in Bath. Because of the snow a lot of places in Bath were shut. On Thursday night we went out for an Italian dinner which was just around the corner from the Hilton Bath City Hotel, called Antica Restaurant. We got there at 8:00PM and as soon as we walked in they said they would shut soon because of the snow, the whole of Bath was a ghost town.

On Friday, we got up early for breakfast and then chilled in the room. Our plan was to go to Bath Spa in the evening so we had a relaxing day and went out for a big lunch at Giraffe. I got the nicest beef burrito, would highly recommend. Stupidly before we walked down to the spa we didn’t check to see if it was open (and it was shut.) So that evening we went to Turtle Bay for a couple of cocktails and then had some snacks at the bar in the hotel. Everywhere was so dead due to the weather!

Im sure you can all tell that I never see snow that much, haha!

If you read one of my last blog posts you would of seen that my boyfriend and I were meant to take a 3 day trip to Dublin. We arrived to the airport earlyWednesday morning for our flight that was meant to take off at 8:05AM. After 6 hours of sitting on our phones, drinking coffee and spending a ridiculous amount of money of food the flight finally got cancelled because of the crazy drop in temperature and flood of snow.

Solly and I left the airport at 1:00PM and decided that instead we will just spend two nights in Bath because Sol never gets time off work so we had to do something.

Hilton Bath City Hotel

Review – Hilton Bath City Hotel is a great hotel with great customer service. The rooms were spacious with a bath, TV and free tea or coffee. The view out of the window was stunning, especially when Bath is covered in snow. They have a full english buffet for breakfast which is a big bonus, although on a weekday they stop serving breakfast at 9:30AM. I would highly recommend staying in this hotel, it is centred right in the middle of Bath by the river, so it is just a 2 minute walk from all the shops.

For two nights we stayed at the Hilton Bath Hotel. We drove up early Thursday afternoon while the snow was coming down heavy. Luckily by the time we got there it hadn’t set yet, so it wasn’t too slippery.

After the snow had set a lot of places were shut so we did find it hard to occupy are time, but it was nice just to relax. Bath spa was shut, the shops and a lot of the restaurants and bars shut early in the evenings. But having two nights away from home was very nice. We came back Saturday afternoon when the snow had turned into slosh. We did a bit of shopping in the morning (well Solly did) and got home just after lunch time. When Solly and I go away together it is very hard to not spend all our money on food.
