The Royal Crescent Hotel
Bath

Classically beautiful both inside and out, the Royal Crescent hotel is housed in two Grade I listed townhouses at the centre of Bath's Royal Crescent. A neo-classic Georgian splendour, the crescent dates from 1775 and is, deservedly, one of Bath's most famous locations. The hotel's 45 rooms and suites have all been individually restored and decorated to reflect the building's history. Details such as patterned carpets, one-of-a-kind antiques and eighteenth century paintings have all been skilfully combined to reflect Georgian times without feeling at all stuffy or traditional. The Duke of York and Sir Percy Blakeney suites are particularly beautiful their grand chandeliers, ornate fireplaces and gold gilded mirrors give the impression you have gone back in time while still feeling fresh and contemporary. At the end of the one-acre landscaped garden you'll find converted coach houses which accommodate the award-winning Dower House restaurant and the calm and atmospheric The Spa. This Relais & Chateaux property is the perfect place to stay for those looking to soak up as much of Bath's royal heritage as possible while at the same time enjoy the comforts of a true luxury hotel.

Client Testimonials

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
