  • Overview
    Introduction

    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 worldwide 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-winning Dower House restaurant and the Bath House Spa.

    Activities

    '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 a 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. 

    Dining

    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.

    How to get there?

    BY ROAD FROM THE NORTH (READING, LONDON, HEATHROW, GATWICK) This will bring you along the M4. Following the usual route signs into Bath from the M4 may cause you delays as the trac can be heavy and the one-way system sometimes frustrating. We have therefore put together a special route (usually used by Bathonians) from the M4 to The Royal Crescent, which should be trouble-free and, all things considered, should bring you safely to our doors from the M4 in about 20 minutes. From Junction 18 follow the A46 towards Bath for approximately 2.5 miles. You will pass The Crown Inn on your left and then the beautiful Dyrham Park and the Tollgate Teashop on your right. Immediately after The Tollgate Teashop, take a right turn (there are no directional signs). Continue along the twisty road for approximately 1.5 miles until you arrive at a T-junction. At the T-junction turn right (signposted Bristol A420), then immediately left to Hamswell. Follow the twisty road past Toghill Farm on your right, down the hill and up another hill to a T-junction (approx. 1.5 miles).At the T-junction turn left up the hill, following the signs to Lansdown and Bath. Continue along this road for the next couple of miles; you will drive along passing Lansdown Golf Club and Bath Racecourse on the right. Continue past The Blathwayt Arms pub on the right and then on to the city outskirts. As you enter the city you will pass the Hare and Hounds pub on the left. The road continues downhill until you reach another T-junction with a church to the left. Turn right at the T-junction and then drive down the hill, passing The Farmhouse Inn on the left and on the right The Grappa bar near the corner of Julian Road. Continue past Julian Road on your right. Take the right turn into Bennett Street (street name carved into the stone at first floor level). Pass Russell Street and Circus Mews on your right. Drive into The Circus (Georgian houses built in a circle). Take the second exit out of The Circus into Brock Street. Drive straight onto the cobbled road of the Royal Crescent at the end of Brock Street, by the telephone box. Drive towards the centre of the Crescent. The hotel is Number 16, adjacent to the large magnolia tree. Please park your car at the front of the hotel and our Concierge will valet park it for you.
