We reserved the library on 23 December 2014 for a very special celebration and were not disappointed. The meal and service was of an exceptional standard down to the welcoming of 8 guests with champagne on arrival right through to our departure 5 hours later. The food from the amusant bouche to the rest was well prepared and beautifully presented... More

The Royal Crescent itself is so iconic, and if you love Architecture and History like we do, then staying at the Hotel there is very special indeed. My mum and I stayed here this weekend as a special treat to cheer us up in the dark days of January! Despite my parents living only 5 miles from Bath, mum had... More

Just lovely - every bit of it. Wonderful staff, a breakfast from heaven, beautiful room, if you can just do come here. It is amazing that behind the Crescent as you see it from the outside is another entire world. Here there are fabulous gardens and the Dowager House (where we stayed). Tucked over this side is the bar, restaurant... More

Romantic weekend away at this establishment was just amazing. The hotel is understated with elegance and the staff is just amazing. The breakfast was served in our room every morning and was of exceptional quality. The SPA is just wonderful and very relaxing. Will most certainly return.

While I'm perfectly happy to stay in budget or medium-range hotels, sometimes it's worth the extra cost to treat oneself to 5-star comfort and service. The Royal Crescent is the perfect place for a luxurious and totally indulgent, short stay. The room was spotless, tastefully decorated, and the gigantic bed very comfortable. The room looked out over the hotel's ancillary... More

As we drove up the cobbled road and stopped outside the entrance we were greeted with a very friendly gentleman who duly took our luggage into the hotel and then parked our car. A great start to a very relaxing stay. The front of house staff were friendly and informative. Once shown to our room we started to relax straight... More

We were so looking forward to a couple of child-free nights on our anniversary...the hotel was booked through booking.com. We were greeted courteously but found ourselves in a room far below the standard we'd booked. When we queried it, we were told that the agent (booking.com) hadn't passed on the room standard requirement. In other words, despite paying the higher... More

This is one of the best Hotels I have stayed in. The room was beautiful and luxurious (as to be expected) and the quirky lift and stair case added to the atmosphere. The welcoming from the Valet was warm and friendly and the attention to detail was wonderful. The Spa was a little basic however I suspect this was my... More

It really was lovely and worth the money, the vaulted underground pool with arched windows and medieval looking hot-tubs and saunas very interesting. The Dower House Restaurant is worth many accolades. When one is vegetarian one becomes inured to the dreaded single vegetarian option with roasted veg, gummy risotto or pasta. The vegetarian menu for dinner at The Dower House... More

Thank you for your review. With regard to the safe, we have two rooms which do not have the larger safes to accommodate a lap top etc. and it was unfortunate that the classic double room you stayed in was one of these. When we refurbished we attempted to fit the laptop size into all the rooms but in two... More
