The outrageous magnolia outward Bath’s Royal Crescent Hotel looks like a happiest tree in a world. But then, if we live crash in a centre of one of a many pleasing terraces on Earth, there’s a good possibility you’d be feeling chipper.

John Wood a Younger’s stupendous, winding pattern has frequency altered a jot given it was built between 1767 and 1774 — though a same can’t be pronounced for what’s left on inside Nos 15 and 16.

Not prolonged ago, a hotel was partial of a Von Essen stable, when that organisation went bust. Now, Topland has picked adult a pieces, refurbishing it from tip to toe during outrageous expense.

There are 45 bedrooms and suites. Ours is a classical double and during £265 for bed and breakfast it’s a cheapest on offer. That’s large income for a tiny room on a belligerent building with small healthy light, though my mother keeps saying: ‘Yes, though this is a Royal Crescent.’

For sure, a garden and yard is dreamy; a indoor pool, with a vaulted ceiling, flickering candles and flagstone floor, is a closest you’ll get to swimming in a church; a use is desirable (the cleaners wear prolonged dresses, waiters are in waistcoats); and a whole environment definitely beguiling, though it’s not perfect.

The dual sketch bedrooms nearby a opening are conjunction intelligent complicated nor stylish old-fashioned. They positively don’t make we wish to loll on a lounge with a newspapers and a cream tea.

The new Montagu champagne bar is some-more of a grand mezzanine than moist assembly place and a contemporary touches in a Dower House grill make we feel we could be anywhere. 

We sequence off a a la grant menu (there’s a seven-course tasting menu during £72 per person), though dual dishes (including a grouse) aren’t available.

We have drinks in a bar and 15 mins or so after we are escorted into a dining room usually to wait a serve 20 mins for any food to arrive. Even some bread would be nice. ‘Yes, though this is a Royal Crescent,’ doesn’t cover this relapse in concentration, not during these prices.

The ‘fine dining’ menu is fancy-pantsy and we have to negotiate tough if we wish to sequence off a brasserie menu though eat in a categorical restaurant. We conduct this, though afterwards wish we were behind in a brasserie, where a lighting is moodier, a atmosphere some-more intimate.

And here’s another thing: even in a bad aged Von Essen days, a glow was always illuminated in a hall. Now it’s all laid and watchful to be dismissed up.

I think a same could be pronounced of a whole craving during this iconic hotel. We contingency wish that a few pointed changes will revive a Royal Crescent’s reward status.
