Hotel Wishlist: The Royal Crescent Hotel, Bath

All photos belong to the Royal Crescent Hotel, Bath



It's been a month today since I last added a hotel to my Hotel Wishlist series (read the last instalment here) and so here we are, a little overdue, with the beautiful Royal Crescent Hotel located in Bath.  As the hotel's name suggests, the Georgian hotel can be found at the heart of Bath's famous Royal Crescent (a row of thirty terraced houses built in the 18th century).  I've visited the city more times than I can remember and each time have ventured up to the Royal Crescent - camera in hand - to take advantage of the beautiful photo-opportunities offered by the sweeping crescent.  During my last visit I took the time to explore No 1 Royal Crescent and when emerging from the museum (definitely worth the visit!) and back out into the cold, I spotted a couple of tourists wearing pom pom hats and wheeling their suitcases into a hotel.  I jotted down the name and fast forward a few months, here I am finally looking into why those tourists looked so cheerful to be wheeling their suitcases around the Royal Crescent..

Deluxe Suite - Eliza Lucas drawing room
Award-winning Dower House Restaurant
I've included The Royal Crescent Hotel in my Hotel Wishlist series for many reasons, however the two most notable are the location and interior design of the hotel and spa.  The history of the iconic hotel spreading across numbers 15 and 16 of the crescent is really something to be marvelled at, with much of the Grade I building's Georgian stone facade remaining as it was when first built and many of the rooms named after historical characters.  Interestingly, the hotel has been featured in The Duchess (2008) featuring Keira Knightley and has also received high words of praise by one of my favourite actors, David Suchet!                
Deluxe Suite - The Royal Crescent
With regard to accommodation, there seems to be a wide variety of rooms ranging from classic rooms to deluxe suites boasting incredible views, as well as the option of 'exclusive use' available to host events.  If you take note of online reviews for hotels (which I sure do), each and every inch of the hotel is reviewed as both luxurious and comfortable, with excellent old-fashioned service.  The Deluxe Suite shown above reminds me very much of the suite I stayed in at The Randolph Hotel to celebrate my 21st birthday, which can only be a good thing!  

I can safely say I now understand entirely why those suitcase-wheeling tourists were so pleased to be entering The Royal Crescent Hotel and rest assured the sophisticated hotel will be remaining firmly bookmarked for my next visit to Bath.  Now, where did I put my pom pom hat and suitcase..?
