Bath is a beautiful city, rich in history with the most stunning architecture. Last term at KLC, I was studying a lot about the history of style and Bath featured heavily, as it is so iconic. The oolitic limestone comprising granular fragments of calcium carbonate is what gives the stone its honey golden colour, that Bath is so famous for.
The Mr and I decided to pack a bag last minute and take a trip for a night to the stunning Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa.
We arrived late afternoon and took a lovely walk round the city centre down to the water, taking lots of pictures with my Polaroid. We headed back early evening for a glass of fizz outside in the sunshine under a heater and blanket. We walked round the garden, fizz in hand looking back at the stunning stone and lovely flowers.
Once the sun had started to set, it got a little chilly so we opted to sit in the library at the front of the hotel. The bar was full due to the seating restrictions they are following because of Covid.
The hotels decor and architectural detailing is stunning and very much in keeping with the history of the building. I loved the black and white tiled floor in the main lobby, so classic.
I booked dinner at the hotel for 7:30pm with pre dinner drinks at 7pm in bar. The food was lovely, traditional British meat and beautiful fish, not too fancy just perfect for us.
The decor in the restaurant and bar are more modern than the main hotel building. The wallpaper in the restaurant is hand sewn and painted with delicate blue florals, with matching blue upholstery on the chairs.
I Love a hotel where you can chose the type of pillow you want, I tend to try a different one each time, it makes me feel like Goldilocks. After a good night's sleep due to my pillow choice, which was a v shaped support pillow, I have now opted to purchase one for home. I was having trouble with my neck and waking up in the morning with muscle pain and the new v shaped pillow has completely fixed the problem.
The following morning we had a tour of the spa which has the most stunning Roman Bath inside, which as most of you will know Bath is famous for. I will certainly be booking ourselves into the spa next time we are allowed to visit and I suggest you do the same as, the Roman Baths are definitely worth a visit, both the historical baths and the ones you can bathe in. If your hotel does't have a Roman Bath to you decide to go for a day trip, there is a beautiful spa in the city centre you can book called Thermal Bath Spa which is Britain's original thermal spa.
The hotel spa was lovely very modern in decor, completely different to the hotel. The bathing area has exposed limestone with lovely views over the gardens.
We had breakfast in the same restaurant we had dinner and headed home straight after. It was a lovely night away, a place we will definitely visit again.
