Welcome to the project website for the proposals to sensitively restore and rejuvenate the former Royal Mineral Water Hospital.

Fragrance UK – Bath Ltd (Fragrance) is proposing to sensitively redevelop the former Royal Mineral Water Hospital into a new hotel, creating a new destination in the city centre and repurposing the iconic building to bring it back to positive use.

As you may be aware, a previous application for the site was refused in September 2020, despite a recommendation to approve the proposals from Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES) Council planning officers. Since then, Fragrance has reflected on the feedback received and worked hard to bring forward revised proposals for the site.

This website contains further information about the history of the site, the revised proposals and the changes which have been made since the refusal of the previous application last year.

We are keen to hear the views of the local community on our revised proposals for the redevelopment of the iconic former Royal Mineral Water Hospital prior to submitting a new planning application to Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES) Council in the coming months. If you would like to provide feedback or request any additional information on the revised proposals please use the online form on our ‘Contact us’ page
