Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

This hotel has one of Bath's most prestigious addresses - it sits in the middle of the majestic Royal Crescent, overlooking lush green lawns, near the city centre.

Rooms at The Royal Crescent Hotel

The serene and stately rooms and suites have four-poster beds, roll-top baths, silk wallpaper, artistic masterpieces on the walls, fresh flowers and stunning period features such as original fireplaces, Georgian plasterwork ceilings and large picture windows. Private balconies overlook the Royal Crescent or the hotel’s secluded walled gardens, which are full of aromatic lavender.

Food & Drink

The award-winning Dower House restaurant offers a modern twist on classic dishes, using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients: enjoy romantic candlelit dining inside, or sit on the terrace, overlooking the gardens, which is perfect for lingering over an al fresco meal in summer. After exploring Bath, return to a delicious afternoon tea, and in the evening try the champagne cocktails in the decadent Montagu bar.


The beautiful spa and bath house make the most of the city’s natural resources alongside modern techniques in a range of therapies, with expert therapists on hand to give you soothing facials and massages. There’s also a heated pool, hot tubs, a sauna and a hammam, as well as a hi-tech gym.

Activities at The Royal Crescent Hotel

As well as being a perfect base for exploring Georgian Bath (don't miss a visit to the baths themselves), with cobbled alleys to explore and numerous shops, bars and restaurants to visit, there is plenty to explore further afield too, such as Stonehenge and the beautiful Cotswolds.
