The five-star, 45-bedroom Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa in Bath has completed a multimillion-pound refurbishment, following its acquisition two years ago by the privately-owned investment company, the Topland Group.
Located within the World Heritage site of the Royal Crescent, the Grade I listed hotel was previously owned by Von Essen before the company went into administration in 2011.
Somerset-based Jayne Clayton Interiors has worked with Brian Cohen, the project manager, to create the new design, to incorporate the technologies of the 21st century within the Georgian building, while the Spa (formerly The Bath House) has been given a new lease of life by Spa Creators.
Alistair Johnson, director of Spa Creators said: "The challenge with this project was the age and historical significance of the building and maintaining the image and character of the building within our interiors scheme."
Meanwhile, the new-look Dower House restaurant, featuring silk paper from Fromental, and Montagu bar, with its original art work, are matched by a state-of-the art kitchen, where head chef David Campbell oversees a three-AA-rosette menu.
One of the stand-out rooms of the refurbishment is the Duke of York Master suite, which features a period plasterwork ceiling and an original fireplace, and over-looks the Royal Crescent front lawn.
The Royal Crescent hotel is a member of the Relais & Chateaux marketing consortium.
