Hotel description

The Royal Crescent itself is a complex of 30 crescent-shaped houses. Built in the late 18th century, the complex is the pride of Bath and an example of unique Georgian architecture. The Royal Crescent Hotel resides in numbers 15 and 16 of the complex, overlooking the sprawling lawn and gardens of the Royal Victoria Park. Boasting an exclusive location, the hotel´s class extends to its award-winning Dower House Restaurant and luxurious spa. A wellness hotel set in England’s most famous thermal spa town, The Royal Crescent Hotel guarantees full relaxation.
A Wellness Hotel: Luxurious relaxation in a traditional spa
The luxury spa at The Royal Crescent Hotel is modeled upon the Roman tradition of using natural warm springs to induce relaxation. Offering multiple water-based facilities such as an indoor heated pool, a steam room, a sauna and an Hamam, the spa also offers various massage and beauty treatments. Harmonious architecture completed with natural wood, stone and bamboo features, the hotel´s spa provides a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere.
A Historic Hotel: Exclusive suites at the Royal Crescent
In one of the most magnificent buildings in Bath if not all of England, the 5-star Royal Crescent Hotel keeps with the stately Royal Crescent tradition and is an ideal starting point for learning about the Georgian architecture of the spa town. The Royal Crescent residential development was built in the late 18th century and has a sweeping, curved floor plan which makes for a dynamic and impressive cityscape. The hotel´s interior décor blends contemporary flair with elegant antique furniture from the residence´s history. The noble atmosphere pervades throughout The Royal Crescent Hotel´s 45 rooms and suites, with the latter having open fireplaces or a freestanding tub in the bathroom. From the balconies, guests can enjoy views over the old city centre or the Royal Victoria Park. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning.
A Gourmet Hotel: Exquisite cuisine in the hotel´s gourmet restaurant, Dower House
The Dower House, The Royal Crescent Hotel´s award-winning gourmet restaurant, serves exquisite culinary concoctions against the backdrop of the garden. From morning to evening, the restaurant offers fine French food and reinterpretations of English cuisine all under the direction of Chef David Campbell.
Food & Drink: Breakfast overlooking the garden, a picnic in the park and afternoon tea on the terrace
Overlooking the Royal Victoria Garden, the elegant salon of the Dower House Restaurant allows guests to savour a truly royal breakfast buffet against a beautiful backdrop. The Dower House has reinterpreted the typical English breakfast with grapefruit juice, ham and eggs, roasted tomatoes and hash browns to also include fried bread with orange marmalade and specialties such as oysters and international breakfast classics. Upon request, guests can also have breakfast served à la carte in their rooms. Later in the day, afternoon tea is especially enjoyable during the summer out on the hotel´s garden terrace. Picnics at the Royal Victoria Park and children’s meals are also offered through the Dower House Restaurant. In winter, the restaurant´s crackling log fire makes for cozy evenings. Guests can also relax and indulge in The Montagu, the hotel´s champagne and cocktail bar which serves refreshing drinks and light snacks in a British club atmosphere.
Sports & Leisure: Indulging in the steam rooms, saunas and pools of the spa town of Bath
Guests of The Royal Crescent Hotel can relax in warm temperatures in the steam room or Hamam. A heated, 30 square metre indoor swimming pool is also the perfect place to refresh and relax. Guests can also indulge in the wide selection of spa massages and treatments. Those looking to keep fit on holidays can make use of the hotel´s free gym. Further afield, a manicured golf course is only 3.5 kilometres from the hotel, and of course, there are many thermal baths and saunas in Bath near to the Royal Crescent.
