  • Overview

    The Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath is a sumptuous award-winning luxury hotel in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath. Sitting right in the middle of the world's finest crescent the Grade I listed buildings that make up this fine hotel were designed by the famous Georgian Architect, John Wood the Younger and were first occupied in 1775.  This iconic hotel is known world-wide for its service, elegance and charm and is a firm favourite with those who only stay at the best of the best.  The interiors take you back to Bath in its glory days and the 45 rooms have been furnished to suit the style and sophistication of the 18th-century.  The one-acre garden is home to beautifully converted coach houses which are now the award-wrinning Dower House restaurant and the Bath House Spa.


    'A spa to die for', Nigel Havers, Actor.  The Bath House spa is a closely guarded secret by those in the know and by guests who stay at The Royal Crescent Hotel.  Sitting behind the main hotel in a converted coach house the contemporary spa has an wide range of therapies and treatments, using famous product ranges (Mama Mio, Comfort Zone and Anne Semonin), focusing on Earth, Fire, Air and Water.  The relaxation pool is heated at a constant 35 degrees centigrade, there are cool and tepid plunge tubs, sauna and steam rooms and a fully equipped gym. 


    Possibly the best finest dining experience in Bath is to be had at the award-winning Dower House which overlooks the secluded gardens.   In the warmer months, the sunny terrace and  lawns make the perfect setting for an English Afternoon Tea, evening drink and al fresco dining.   The chef and his team prepare the very best gourmet cuisine for a contemporary British menu that is influenced by both the Mediterranean and the Far East as well as the fresh ingredients available. Sommelier Jean Marc Leitao, can recommend a wine from the magnificent cellar to complement the menus with a choice for both the casual diner and the true fine wine aficionado.  Children’s menus are readily available as are freshly-made picnics for those guests looking to explore the surrounding countryside. Family dining is available from 6.30pm to 7.30pm when families can sit down together & enjoy inspirational, nutritious dishes using the best local ingredients.

    'There is a single hotel room in the world that I actually look forward to staying in: it's the Duke of York Suite at The Royal Crescent Hotel.' David Starkey, CBE – Historian, Author and Broadcaster.  Whilst most of us don't have the budget to enjoy the best suite in Bath, there is a great selection of rooms at The Royal Crescent.  The 45 luxury bedrooms represent the luxury and indulgence of Bath in its Georgian heyday, but with all the modern day comforts that a discerning guest has come to expect from the best luxury hotel in Somerset.  Each room is of course individual and unique with authentic period details – carpets, furnishings, colour schemes and fabrics are all as they would have been in the 18th-century. What the all have in common is the sumptusous en-suite bathrooms, fresh flowers and almost all enjoy lovely views over the parkland and gardens.  The suites are named after historic personalities either directly connected to the Royal Crescent or to Bath in its glory days including Ralph Allen, William Beckford, Duke of York, Sir Percy Blakeney, Jane Austen and Sir Thomas Gainsborough.
