Historic English elegance
This accommodation in pictures
Billed as an ‘historic masterpiece from an age of elegance’, the Royal Crescent lives up to its reputation as an unrivalled luxury hotel at the heart of one of the great set pieces of European architecture - Bath’s Royal Crescent.
Occupying two central Grade I listed Georgian buildings within the crescent, this delightfully discreet hotel opens out behind the famous landmark to occupy several former coach houses, now separated by a leafy and secluded interior garden courtyard, perfect for breakfast or a splendid afternoon tea.
From the fine entrance hall, black and white chequered floor and ceremonial halberds, the Royal Crescent offers an opportunity to experience a style of gracious living from an age when Bath was at the forefront of the civilised world.
Throughout the hotel fine period furnishings, textiles and paintings display the greatest care for authentic detail. Each bedroom has been restored to its original splendour, with carpets, furnishings, colours and fabrics all as they would have been in the 18th century.
We like: The Bath House is consistently voted among the UK’s top spas, focusing on the natural elements of earth, air, fire, water and offering an extensive range of traditional, progressive and bespoke therapies.
Best for: A relaxing weekend of discreet English elegance with a backdrop of fine period furnishings and an exceptional collection of paintings from 18th century masters.
