Location, service, spa, courtyard garden, restaurant, bar, character, elegence, this place almost has it all. The only thing missing is local beer on tap. What kind of self respecting British establishment doesn't afford its guests the opportunity for a pint of England's finest?

Very nice hotel. Quiet and very nicely kept. Walking distance to downtown. Had some trouble getting a blow dryer but they found one by morning. Had breakfast in the garden at the back of the property in a lovely garden

My wife & I have just returned from two nights at this hotel which was to celebrate our 22nd Wedding Anniversary. It is a superb location in the centre of John Wood's masterpiece, The Royal Cresent. It is a charming and beautiful hotel with a wonderful courtyard garden. We were fortunate to enjoy wonderful weather so could eat even breakfast... More

We had a 3 day break to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The garden is magical. We were fortunate to have an upgrade to a suite which was excellent.

Just had a wonderful weekend in Bath, which is a beautiful city. We stayed one night at the Royal Crescent & Spa, which was really special. We went with friends and had two double deluxe rooms (Numbers 56 & 57) which were very spacious with beautiful décor and felt 'very relaxing'. Our rooms were close to the Spa and pool... More

Seldom does one find a hotel as perfect as this. Spectacular situation; immaculately appointed accommodation and delicious food. The numerous staff are ever attentive without being intrusive. I left after a two day weekend rejuvenated and longing to return. The only downside was the break down of the television system throughout the hotel which should have been rectified much more...

This is an absolutely stunning and lovely hotel in a very good location with a beautiful garden and very helpful front staff, until you want anything actually done from the back; Restaurant, room service etc. Then you can expect excessive waiting, even when staff appear to be lounging about. When staff are busy then one expects that things may take... More

It would appear that the service experienced on the day was well below your expectations and certainly beyond ours as a 5* hotel. Our guests are paramount and we get many positive comments consistently about our staff and our service . It is most unfortunate and regretfull you were not given the service and attention you deserved as one of... More

This is a classic hotel in a city loaded with history. Despite the size and rambling nature of the building, it still feels intimate. Service is top notch and you pay accordingly. Highly recommended if it is in your budget and you have any interest in history and culture.

I last stayed at this hotel twenty three years ago and was slightly bemused to be "welcomed back", but it is this attention to detail that makes this hotel almost perfect. Having requested a suite in the main building we were allocated the John Wood Suite on the second floor, it is bright and spacious and affords stunning views across... More

Great location, right in the middle of the famous Royal Crescent. Staff very attentive and helpful. Valet parking, help with the bags, all the right stuff to make you feel good. Room was small but well-appointed, with airco (not so common in an 18th century grade 1 listed building). Garden courtyard very pretty, good place to take your partner. Only... More

The Grade I listed buildings were designed by the famous Georgian Architect, John Wood the Younger and were first occupied in 1775.Beyond its magnificent facade lies a hotel renowned for its charm, elegance and superb service, and, the unexpected beauty of the beautiful one-acre, landscaped garden leading to the skillfully converted coach houses, which now accommodate the award-winning Dower House restaurant and The Spa.This iconic hotel is far more than a remarkable collection of buildings and beautiful gardens. It offers the opportunity to experience a style of gracious living from the age when Bath was the very centre of the civilized world.Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner are served daily and non-resident guests are welcome. ... more   less
