Check availability and Book

Fabulously located on Royal Crescent, this elegant hotel has superb dining and a sophisticated spa hidden away in its stunning secret gardens.

The Royal Crescent Hotel presents luxury and finesse from two Grade I listed buildings on Bath's famous crescent. Each bedroom has an 18th-century-style decor, and there are paintings from period artists such as Gainsborough.

The Bath House is the hotel's unique spa within the original coach house and stables. It has a heated relaxation pool, plunge tubs, gym, sauna, steam Karahafus and many treatments.

Behind the crescent are beautiful gardens ideal for a traditional English afternoon tea. Dower House Restaurant overlooks the gardens and offers al fresco dining in summer (booking is essential).

The hotel is a short (10 minute) walk from the city centre and Bath Spa railway station. Bath's many museums, antique dealers, theatre and shopping opportunities are all on the doorstep. Meanwhile the hotel provides the ideal base from which to explore nearby places of interest such as the Cotswolds, Stonehenge, Cheddar Gorge, Longleat House and Prior Park.
