I didn't see anything spectacular about the cresent, just a row of terraced houses with a great view. I thought the Circus a little further along the street much more architecturally pleasing.

It is worth taking a stroll past the Circus and the Royal Crescent. It is only a short walk from the Baths and the city centre. The Royal Crescent is situated in a beautiful setting with parkland opposite.

A beautiful spot. It is an uphill walk but once you get there it has beautiful views of the surrounding areas.

This was an interesting landmark of Bath to walk around. The lack of access to general traffic made it a calm, quieter part of Bath. The architecture is beautiful and is best appreciated from the bottom of the park in front of it. It is easy to visualise the 'Who will buy' aspect of the musical 'Oliver' which was filmed... More

Upon our arrival we were surprised by the great high standing place an welcome from the receptionist. Room was big, bed was huge. A bit noisy but no big problem. Issues started on the morning: the breakfast buffe included in the tariff doesn deserve 5 stars. We had to fight and negotiate for a spa treatment of only 30min because... More

I have stayed in over 200 hotels during my 50 year life time and can honestly say this hotel offers the worst breakfast food for a 5 star hotel experience. My wife and I had to wait for 25 minutes for the breakfast to arrive on our first morning of our 2 night stay when it came it was poor... More

We were outside the RC and the view of the whole building was amazing. Took a lot of panaroma photos because the building was long, so yeas.

A beautiful spot just off the main shopping area, has a nice park to sit and have a picnic, or just wander along and have a peek at the Royal Crescent Hotel.

It's a beautiful crescent shape building, which is truly unique and well worth a look. It's free, and has a lovely green park in front to picnic on and admire the architecture and wonderful design of this stunning row of houses. There was a tour guide there who said that one of the houses was recently valued and sold at... More
