The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, Bath

#5 of 241 in Things to do in Bath
World heritage site · Architectural Building · Tourist Spot
One of the best examples of Georgian architecture in the UK, The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa is a street of terraced houses laid out in a crescent shape. The stone facade retains all the original detail from the Georgian period and is a testament to that era's elegance. It is best viewed from the royal park adjacent to the building, where the entire crescent can be seen from the concave side. Most of the houses are offices or private residences, but a hotel and the Georgian House Museum on street level give a peek into what the rooms may have looked like when the buildings were first opened.

  • The actual building is from 1767 so luckily Romans had nothing to do with it. Kudos to the builders for making it perfectly proportioned and equally grand. This Grade I architecture wouldn't have...  more »
  • On our visit to Bath, this place was recommended so we thought we’d go for a look. It’s a great place to relax on a sunny day, the local council or whoever maintains the area put a lot of effort into....  more »
  • Cars parked next to this awesome sight is an eyesore. We think this place is overrated by a massive margin.  more »
  • We had afternoon tea here, and while admittedly it didn't come cheap, it was absolutely amazing. Free refills on sandwiches and tea will leave you quite satisfied. Make sure to book in advance though, as this is - quite rightfully so - a very popular place. Also amazing options for vegetarians, which I greatly appreciated. Thanks for an amazing afternoon!
  • Great hotel option in Bath if you have a dog. Loved the old heritage building and the beautiful gardens. The rooms were a bit dated but nothing terrible.
  • We discovered this oasis by venturing (or misadventuring) through a doorway to discover a well-maintained private garden with benches and tables for guests in front of a restaurant. Staff were obliging to allow us a garden table normally reserved for guests at the hotel, for a shaded drink on a sweltering day (although it could be said that we needn't have been made to feel second class to that). Despite that, it's a lovely quiet, reserved spot amid the bustle of Royal Crescent.
  • We popped in to admire this magnificent hotel and fabulous gardens. Would have liked a drink but service outside seemed a tad too relaxed. I would love to stay here.
  • The Royal Crescent Hotel is an absolute delight. We have worked on several occassions, providing marquees for clients who host events in their stunning grounds, and as a supplier delivering to them, you see 'behind the scenes'. Their family-like friendliness and utter professionalism extends not just to guests, but to suppliers too - which is a true show of the authenticity of their hospitality. Their staff are extremely helpful, flexible and kind and it is an absolute pleasure to work alongside them. Looking forward to the next visit! With best wishes from all at The Arabian Tent Company!
