The magnificence of the Crescent is breathtaking. Although some of the houses reflect changing fashions over the centuries, the building as a whole has kept its grandeur and magnificence.

The biggest of the Georgian curving parades, with great views from the grass outside. But at bottom it is still just a rather fancy housing terrace; and the grounds outside are very dull. More interesting was the Circus, a couple of hundred yards away: a complete circle of Georgian housing where, if you stand in the middle and clap, a... More

Stayed 2 nights. Hotel is beautiful with lovely grounds. Our rom was large and beautifully decorated. All the staff we encountered were friendly, professional and helpful. Breakfast was good, had a spa treatment which was good, the spa is nice and relaxing. Would stay again

Fabulour sweep of buildings but it came as a shock to find that most of the houses were commercially owned (Only three in private hands) and 24 apartements. Very Classic Bath and seeing it on a bright sunny day made it evern more delightful. But we heard on the "grapevine", that the grass below the Haha would not continue to... More

Never done a bus tour but during the tour we saw this gorgeous looking crescent, didn't know there was a hotel there, great for a special occasion. Worth a walk along this great set of buildings

A 'Must Visit' for any trip to Bath, designed by John Wood the Younger who also desgined the circus, to mirror the sun and the crescent to mirror the moon. Visit no 1 which has been overhauled internally to replicate Georgian times - you are greeted by the housekeeper in period costume. there is a fee to enter No 1... More

Not to be missed if you visit Bath, and looking across to the crescent from the gardens in front is magnificent. The elegance of the buildings and their stately grandeur are a joy to behold. Take a walk to the east if you have time, only a few hundred yards, to the Circus, which for me, is even more pleasing... More

Great period architecture. Nice park in the front with beautiful garden. Easy and nice walk from town center. Worth a view.

Brilliant place and wonderful architectural marvel. Worth the visit. Big stretch of green grass makes it all the more beautiful. Do visit the museum which is just at the entry to crescent.

I enjoyed good time with my friend on the lawn, relaxing, taking pictures, and experiencing the atmosphere around. The effect of photo shooting is great especially when the sun lights the building up. However, the actual building itself is not so glamorous when looking closely. Overall, a good place to visit :)
