The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa Bath has been awarded the AA’s most prestigious hotel rating, five red stars.
Rated and awarded by AA’s professional inspectors, the news was announced at the AA Hospitality Awards in London on 26th September. The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa is one of only five hotels across the UK to receive the coveted accolade this year.
Spearheaded by GM Jonathan Stapleton, The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa is a five star, 45 room and suite property set within a Grade 1 listed Georgian townhouse on the world-famous Royal Crescent in the historical heart of Bath.
With a proven track record in the luxury hospitality industry, this is the second hotel that Jonathan has taken to five red stars having previously managed The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in St Andrews.
Jonathan Stapleton said: “We’re delighted to be one of only five hotels to receive the AA’s five red staraward this year. 2016 has seen the opening of our newly revamped The Spa & Bath House as well as our beautiful walled Wedding Garden so we can’t imagine a more appropriate time to be recognised. We also have the 250th anniversary of The Royal Crescent coming up in 2017 so there’s a lot to celebrate.
“The staff have shown such determination and dedication in meeting the first class standards required for this award – I couldn’t be prouder to be working alongside such a team of professionals to deliver the very best of British hospitality.”
