I arrived at night, and was stunned by its beauty.
The Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath is located at the very centre of the royal crescent(surprise surprise!), which is formed by 30 Georgian terraced houses facing and overlooking the city of bath and the many surrounding fields. Its prestiges location on the top of a slope means there’s nothing but the city in distance, and a sky full of stars before you.
So I arrived to this breathtaking night view of the royal crescent, thinking it would be tough for a hotel to play up to this setting. But I was wrong. As I walked through the lobby, passed the winding stone laid path to my classic suite(the cheapest type of room that allowed dogs), every single detail in the hotel matched perfectly with the majestic royal crescent. And I only felt more and more like stepping into the snobbish bit of a Jane Austin’s novel. And there I was, arrived in front of my room that’s named “Jane Austin”-cliché you might say, but appropriate.
Standing at the hotel door in a day like that, you’ll feel like you’re the person whole owns and rules the whole of Bath! Except you’re not. But it’s always nice to be able to feel that way even for a second, no?
The hotel has much more to offer that I haven’t had get a chance to try out. It’s very proud of its own spa and restaurant. Although I didn’t get to dine in the restaurant for dinner, the service and selection of food I experienced at breakfast already said it all. Just by writing and remembering about the hotel at this moment, I want to go back there already!
