The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, Bath: enjoy a special gourmet package at this Georgian spa hotel
What we love...
This hotel is quintessentially Bath. With an unrivalled location behind the landmark facade of the sweeping Georgian crescent, it occupies two five-storey original period homes. The exceptional Regency-era hospitality begins as you walk in the door and you're immediately shown into the drawing room. From there, the experience continues with original fireplaces, decorative mouldings, sedan chairs peeking out from under the stairs and landscaped gardens in keeping with the period, where you can enjoy alfresco dining and barbecues in summer. Afternoon teas are served alongside fine dining in the elegant Dower House. The original coach house is now the bath house spa - a relaxing sanctuary where you can bathe in the pool and rejuvenate with a facial and massages.
Readers will enjoy a three-course meal in the three AA Rosette restaurant on one night as part of a two-night stay in a luxurious room or suite. On arrival, you'll also find a bottle of Taittinger Champagne and a box of chocolates in your room, enjoy access to The Spa & Bath House and a free luxury spa gift each.
