The Royal Crescent Hotel is a centrally-located landmark property in Bath, and an exemplary example of Georgian architecture. The elegant Grade I listed structure sits on of the world's finest crescents and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The grounds are home to beautifully converted coach houses, and there you'll find Dower House restaurant (and also the spa). Executive Chef David Campbell is at the helm of the 3 AA Rosette eatery; choose from the à la carte selection or go for the tasting menu. Locally-sourced ingredients as well as a selection from the Continent are used to create classic plates with a modern twist. Start with ceviche and tartare of mackerel with smoked roe cream, oyster fritter, nasturtium and coal oil, follow with pork tenderloin and crisp shoulder with Yorkshire rhubarb, onion, cornbread and rosemary, and finish with compressed pineapple with set coconut cream and Szechuan. That's just a taster of the type of creations on offer.
'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.
There are 11 spacious suites at the hotel, each with a private living area. But there are a number of other room categories too, ranging from Deluxe and Heritage to Family Master. All are individually decorated; some are located in the main mansion, others in the Pavilion or the Coach House across the gardens.
Note: dogs (and cats) are permitted in some rooms (at an extra cost).
'A spa to die for', Nigel Havers, Actor.
The tranquil Spa & Bath House is home to a 12-metre pool with massage jets, a fitness room and treatment areas.
The hotel is a relaxing place to spend some time, but you'll likely want to explore the city too: the thermal baths are just over a 10-minute walk away, and both the Abbey and Roman Baths are about 15 minutes on foot. Food tours can be arranged for you, as can activities such as stand up paddleboarding along the Avon.
Free parking is available.
