Royal Crescent Hotel
Lonely Planet review
Oozing charm and style, and dripping in period character, Bath's grandest hotel is located on England's most magnificent crescent and lords over the elegant city below with the understated air of true refinement.
Once you step through the door of the Royal Crescent Hotel, a languid sense of calm descends around you, and the graceful proportions and sumptuous furnishings transport you back in time. Eighteenth-century grandeur is lovingly recreated here with incredible attention to detail (the cleaning staff are dressed in traditional uniform with starched white aprons). The hotel is spread out over six buildings surrounding a secluded central garden, but the most magnificent rooms are in the main house. Here, you'll find paintings by Gainsborough and Reynolds, high ceilings covered with elaborate plasterwork and massive suites with imposing four-poster beds. Some rooms have working fireplaces and most have majestic views over the crescent and the lawns below. Rooms in the other buildings are smaller and not quite so grand, but retain the period styling, antique furniture and magnificent bathrooms.
