Bath apartment description

Drift back in time to the elegant splendour of Georgian Bath while staying at the most renowned address in this famous city, the Royal Crescent. This apartment has been meticulously restored to its former grandeur yet made even more comfortable with the addition of 21st century conveniences. Located next to the famous Royal Crescent Hotel, this exquisite apartment is situated in an ideal position to take advantage of everything the idyllic city of Bath has to offer.

The layout of the apartment would best be described as 21st century loft-style living with 18th century palatial grandeur. Entry to the apartment is from the Royal Crescent through large double front doors into a well-maintained entrance area. The front door to the apartment opens into a suitable hallway lined with original cupboards. At the end of the hallway is a very comfortably sized bathroom decorated in distinctive stone tile work. Turn to the left and you enter the main reception. The magnificence of this room is inspiring. During the restoration of the property, it was discovered that a number of original cartouches (17 in all) had been covered by secondary walls during the past century, leaving them well protected. These c1767 plaques have been incredibly preserved, adorning the walls in their original form once again and lending the room the aura of a small-scale palace.

To the right of the reception is a well equipped, thoughtfully designed kitchen.

Exit the drawing room to the left and find yourself in a lovely secluded, private garden. Enjoy a cup of tea, a glass of wine, or dinner on a lovely evening in this private sanctuary.

This apartment is one of a kind and well suited for that distinctive traveller. Whether for a romantic weekend or a quiet retreat from a busy workweek, this setting is a very special haven for the discerning individual.

                I booked the apartment as part of a celebratory surprise for my husbands 30th birthday. We love Bath and have always wondered what's it's like inside a Royal Crescent building so this property was ideal. From the moment I contacted Pam she was 'on the ball' and provided me with all the relavent information. I knew the break away and the surprise would be worth it. The property doesn't disappoint, it's wonderful and as the title says "magical". As soon as you walk in you feel the vastness of the place. The room is huge, one luxurious 1 bed pad, it's great. The kitchen is well equipped and Pam and Tim add nice touches like fresh milk, bread,jam, juice, butter, biscuits and wine. The bathroom is also lovely. I would certainly recommend staying here when visiting Bath. We ate at The Marlborough Tavern which is a short walk from the apartment (to the right) and the food and atmosphere is nice. Worth a visit.

                This Royal Crescent apartment is absolutely stunning. It is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Pam and Tim met us to let us in and showed us around. The location is excellent. We walked to everything. We sat outside in the garden and enjoyed the wine that Pam provided. Hot air balloons flew directly overhead more than once. The kitchen is adorable and fully equipped. Pam had the refrigerator stocked with eggs, milk, butter, jam, orange juice and wine. The bathroom has a great tub and a rain shower. We loved returning to the apartment every evening after sightseeing. I referred to the apartment as "The Palace",

                I have just enjoyed three amazing nights in this exquisite studio apartment. All of my initial enquiries were promptly and professionally answered and Pam was there at the agreed upon time to let me in to the apartment. Everything not only met but exceeded my expectations. The apartment was not only stunningly beautiful but also clean and I was pleased to find so many lovely personal touches such as a fresh bouquet of sunflowers and a bottle of wine waiting in the fridge. I hope to stay here again in the future.

                We are older married and with energy to walk everywhere. This flat is beautifully appointed, we were able to cook a gourmet meal as well as walk to so many of Bath's attractions. This flat is superb. We would love to return and will recommend this flat to our friends. The photos are exact as to the opulence of the falt.

                Outstanding location and absolutely brilliant ambiance. The romantic elegance of Bath is skillfully paralleled by the opulent décor of this gorgeous Georgian flat. The private garden and the impressive Royal Crescent Hotel (a few doors away) only add to our desire to return

                My wife and I along with our 3 yr old boy stayed in this Royal Crescent flat for a week and enjoyed every minute. Within easy walking distance of downtown Bath, this classic example of Georgian architecture is a dream to stay in. The well designed kitchen is small, but beautifully furnished with modern appliances. Since the flat is on the ground floor there is a walled private patio, great for a brunch, tea or a glass of wine. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

                My daughter and I visited this flat first in autumn 2009 and loved it so much we made a return journey from Arizona on April 1, 2012 for a two week stay. What a delightful flat this is. The original wall decor and moldings are amazing, the garden lovely, and it was so much fun telling the cabbies to take us to the Royal Crescent. It is an easy walk to all of the sights in Bath and there is so much to do. My daughter took runs each morning through the park out front. The apppointments in the flat are perfect. The kitchen small but extremely functional. We had breakfast each morning and at least half of our dinners at the flat. Dining looking out at the garden was so pleasant. The huge windows let in the morning light giving us a marvelous start to each happy day. We absolutely love this place and will return again some day.

                We spent three fabulous nights in this beautiful Georgian apartment which was all and more than advertised. Elegantly furnished with a small but ultra modern kitchen and beautiful private garden, we felt as though we had stepped back in time without loss of modern conveniences. Charming, comfortable and extremely well located (adjacent to the five star Royal Crescent Hotel), this property is a one of a kind and was the highlight of our two months of travel. We highly recommend this property. The only drawback was that our stay was too short. Spend at least a week or maybe two as the properrty and it's environs are deserving of a more leisurely experience!
