5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Arrived on a Tuesday for a three business oriented stay. The hotel is impeccably decorated and the rooms very comfortable. The lack of dedicated business centre facilities was more than compensated for by the excellent service provided by the concierge and front desk. From the doorman to the general manager I can scarcely remember better service; it was impeccable and... More

Our party of five went for lunch last Saturday to celebrate my friends Birthday. It was a slow start with nobody to consult about a suitable wine. We asked for bread with our meal , but it did not come until we asked twice more .The second bottle of champagne was warm. It was put in a bucket of cold... More

It is always our intention that all our guests enjoy their time with us and it is regrettable that the surprise cake was initially ordered by the guest for the day after the lunch was booked. On realising this error the staff did everything they could to resolve the situation and as a gesture of sincere goodwill the entire party... More

Loved this wonderful Hotel. Beautiful gardens and great location. Dinner and Breakfast did not disappoint. If you feel like a splurge you won't be disappointed. Well run and lots of personal touches which made our experience stand out from other places we have stayed at. Spa is sublime!

As someone who is a little over zealous about history, staying at the Royal Crescent has been on my bucket list for a very long time. It did not disappoint. The service is exceptional and the rooms are what you would anticipate when paying what you must to experience a setting of this caliber. To walk through the doors on... More

On our viist to Bath we decided to spoil ourselves with afternoon tea at the Royal Crescent Hotel, this was a 60th birthday celebration, I can only say don't bother, very disappointing and not worth the money. I would suggest having afternoon tea at the Pump Room instead. We were offered a discount because of the poor service but this... More

I had the pleasure of a short stay at The Royal Crescent a few years ago and the spa was an absolute delight. However, I was reminded how good the food was once again when I was treated to a delicious lunch. We had the good fortune to enjoy the sunshine - sitting in the tranquil garden to eat and... More
