Directions - The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa Relais & Chateaux, Bath

5AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
16 Royal Crescent , Bath, BA1 2LS
The Royal Crescent Hotel is the most impressively located luxury hotel in the World Heritage City of Bath, occupying the two central buildings of the world's finest crescent. The Grade I listed buildings were designed by the famous Georgian Architect, John Wood the Younger and were first occupied in 1775.
Beyond its magnificent facade lies a hotel renowned for its charm, elegance and superb service, and, the unexpected beauty of the beautiful one-acre, landscaped garden leading to the skillfully converted coach houses, which now accommodate the award-winning Dower House restaurant and The Spa.
There are 45 luxury bedrooms in all, arranged throughout the five elegant buildings that have been combined to create this remarkable hotel. Every room has its own unique character, but each has certain items in common. All rooms have luxuriously appointed en suite bathrooms and are graced with flowers. In addition, most enjoy lovely views over the surrounding gardens, lawns and parkland.

We have moved into the final phase of our complete refurbishment and renovation project. We currently have our last 15 bedrooms under refurbishment alongside our Mansion House public areas. Whilst scaffolding adorns the front of the hotel, the rest of the hotel has benefitted enormously from the complete works. All of the remaining bedrooms are fully refurbished, boasting contemporary design with a hint towards tradition. The Spa is light and airy with a newly extended 'TechnoGym' gymnasium, ESPA treatments and Shellac by CND Nails. We have maintained the tranquillity candlelit pool area which was always a haven of relaxation for our guests. The 3AA Rosette Restaurant, The Dower House, is extended to offer more space for guests to dine and, newly created, we offer 'The Montagu' bar serving cocktails, champagnes and all-day dining options. We are looking forward to unveiling the completed newly refurbished Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa by the middle of April 2014.
