Memorable Afternoon Tea for my Mum's Birthday
The afternoon tea, and the whole experience in general, was so wonderful that we have decided we must make this celebration an annual event. My mum is disabled and she doesn't get out much, so this was a real treat. The staff were very kind and the food was outstanding. The best afternoon tea of my life.

The location of the hotel could not have been better, however our stay was particularly memorable by the staff, who without exception had a “can do” attitude and who went out of their way to make sure that we felt really valued. Recommended.

Perfect. As simple as that.
Every aspect of this stay, from planning, to discussing rooms, to checking out, was absolutely perfect. The room was beautiful, airy and full of light, the spa was wonderful, the staff were unfailingly attentive, polite and friendly, and there is a clear sense of commitment to the highest possible standards of care for the guests. The breakfast was also absolutely out of this world. This is a truly superb hotel by any standard, and we had an unforgettable stay.

Superb Afternoon Tea
We had a gift voucher for Afternoon Tea at the Crescent. Have been there before for a wedding reception so rather thought it would be special. Lovely selection of teas. Try the rooibos with orange and cream. Choice of either sweet or savoury treats. The bath buns with cinnamon butter were the highlight. Beautiful room and friendly service.

Worth Six Stars!
This hotel is faultless. You pay a great deal - but it is worth every penny. The Service is the key feature. Top class staff making you feel right at home with unobtrusive service. Restaurant food - breakfast and dinner- absolutely outstanding. Great location.
Had not stayed before, looking forward to going back!
A truly lovely hotel in a beautiful setting and just minutes from the city centre. The management team were second to none and this cascaded down to the rest of the team. The General Manager was even around at breakfast time ensuring that everything was running smoothly and that everyone was happy. The food was consistently excellent.
Room Tip: Garen or Royal Crescent View. The Garden is quiet and pretty but for the sense of history, a Crescent view room would be better.
We booked two rooms for our daughter's recent graduation and we were treated to 24-hours of impeccable service. The hotel made every effort to accommodate our needs (It is worth communicating clearly in advance if you have any special requests or questions) and we had two lovely rooms. For sure, the bathroom in our room, shower only as requested was on the small side but you need to remember that these period properties were never built with bathrooms in mind. plus having the only room in the entire crescent with a 1st floor arched window more than made up for this. The view was spectacular.
Drinks and breakfast in the garden is a real pleasure, a haven from the world outside. We had a really good evening meal at The Dower House Restaurant as well.
The Spa is simple and tastefully done, it has one of the nicest pools I have ever used. Vitality Pool, Steam and Sauna also in the same area. All inclusive for guests.
Overall, however, it was the helpfulness an friendliness of the staff that made the difference. From a warm welcome, effortless check-in and knowledgeable restaurant team, the whole visit was made by their positive, friendly but not overly obsequious attitude. Even the Gardner was congratulating my daughter on her degree.
Only issue? We didn't want to leave
We came to relax in Bath. Never expected to spend so much time at the hotel. Room was large with an amazingly comfortable king size bed. Food, drink, staff, and gardens all wonderful. You think it’s only the front on the Crescent but it opens up to an oasis. Martin, at the front, was amazingly helpful.

"Amazing place, perfect in every way and wonderful weather to boot! Valet parking was a great benefit, perfect room and great breakfast."
"Just returned home from an absolutely amazing time at this Gem of a Hotel. The Staff were so friendly and could not do enough for us, and our suite was spotless and luxurious. We also dined at The Dower House Restaurant was a lovely experience"

"All the staff we encountered during our stay made a good weekend great, nothing was too much trouble. The depth of knowledge regarding some of the drinks I bought was really phenomenal, the local knowledge imparted to me was fantastic as was the guy who tuned the television set so that we could watch the rugby! Thank you all once again."

"The Royal Crescent Hotel is one of the best hotel experiences we’ve ever had. Food was superb, our suite was enormous and charming. Service was perfect. I had afternoon tea there and it was the best I’ve ever had."

“The beautiful situation of the crescent cannot be understood by any comparison with anything in any town whatsoever.”
