Michelle Pfeiffer, Russell Brand and Michael Douglas have all stayed at this, the grandest hotel in one of Britain’s most elegant cities. The property has just completed an extensive interior renovation project and is home to a 3-AA-Rosette fine dining restaurant and beautiful gardens.
Comprising several 18th-century buildings in the Bath crescent after which it is named, the Royal Crescent bedrooms vary in size from the Duke of York suite, named after the son of George III who once rented the place, to the smaller classic rooms. These are still impressive, with antique features, views over Bath’s rooftops, free Wi-Fi and bottles of mineral water.
The hotel is decorated throughout with meticulous attention to period style, including high ceilings with intricate plasterwork, marble-clad staircases, original portraits by Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough and four-poster beds and fireplaces in some rooms. Even the cleaning staff’s starched white uniforms contribute to recreating the atmosphere of Georgian luxury.
There’s a spa and health club housed in the former stables with a swimming pool and small gym. Winner of a Most Romantic Table in the Bath Good Food Awards and three AA-Rosettes, the fine-dining Dower restaurant overlooks the hotel’s beautiful gardens. Expect dishes such as ceviche of Cornish scallops and Salisbury Plain deer on the menu.
For something really special, the hotel has its own 1920s river launch available for guests to hire to take a trip along the Kennet and Avon Canal (charges apply) from April-October. Otherwise, the UNESCO city of Bath has a lot to offer visitors, with top restaurants, museums, historical architecture, and those Roman baths.
