The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, Bath

(2,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We had a fantastic guide. We visited the crescent in the late afternoon. The sun was hitting the facade and the glow on the line stone was incredible. It is a stunning and historic part of Bath and a ...  more »
  • This is a row of 30 terraced houses laid out in a sweeping crescent in the city of Bath. We visited No. 1, the museum and later admired the views from the front lawn. Visit if in the area.  more »
  • Well, it is! But it is a very nice row of flats. The big park in front of the Crescent and the general neighbourhood were what made the visit truly worth it.  more »

  • An amazing stay with such lovely staff with amazing attention to detail. We were celebrating my birthday and it was the most lovely stay I could have ever asked for. Such a beautiful hotel in a beautiful city.
  • You will find more modern luxuries hotels, but its excellent centre of the Royal Crescent and in the centre of this fabulous Roman City. Everything is just a walk away. Fast train from London takes you to a different world. In the back garden, the superb restaurant.
  • Excellent experience. Beautiful location. Brilliant service from the moment we arrived. Car parked for us, bags taken straight to room, lovely drink and lunch in bar. Upgraded room, very luxurious. Beautiful gardens to enjoy afternoon tea. Very impressive spa with good swimming pool and quiet/clean sauna etc. Nice changing facilities. Didn't have dinner there but breakfast was excellent. Overall, very expensive but service, location and facilities were the best I've ever experienced. Came away feeling very relaxed and happy even though it was only for one night.
  • I love this Hotel! Very big spa zone with swimming-pool. The best time to stay in hotel is late spring-summer. Very cute rose garden where you can have breakfast or lunch
  • As someone who is a little over zealous about history, staying at the Royal Crescent has been on my bucket list for a very long time. It did not disappoint. The service is exceptional and the rooms are what you would anticipate when paying what you must to experience a setting of this caliber. To walk through the doors on the famous façade and have a room with all the modern luxuries you would expect with the Georgian charm you hope for is almost surreal. The gardens through the back create a wonderful sanctuary against the often present crush of tourists in the front. Having been one of those tourists who is fortunate enough to be able to cross the threshold into the Royal Crescent, as opposed to being a spectator on the outside, I felt especially privileged. I strongly urge anyone with a passion for history, a love of Bath, and the means to stay a visit to this prestigious and spectacular hotel.
