After a year of planning, The Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa has unveiled its new Walled Garden space, designed to attract more private event bookings to the business.
Measuring some 66-square-metres, The Walled Garden at The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa is the first of its kind in Bath.
With a pergola designed by local architect Nick Shipp, the space uses pennant stone and a muted palette of whites and greens to give a neutral feel.
Bath landscape designer Alison Jenkins was responsible for the garden’s creation, having previously worked on the hotel’s Taittinger Spa Garden in 2015.
The garden also comes with its own dedicated events team, who will be on hand throughout an event to serve guests.
The Royal Crescent’s four-bedroom Garden Villa backs out onto the Walled Garden, and able to accommodate 10 guests is bidding to attract exclusive-use bookings.
General manager, Jonathan Stapleton, comments: “We are thrilled to finally be unveiling The Walled Garden, and to be able to offer guests a truly unique outdoor venue in the city, perfect for bespoke private functions and celebrations in the heart of Bath. This dedicated walled venue paired with the expertise of our expert events team offers a personal experience which is all part of the bespoke celebrations and events offering available at The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa.”
Chairman of Topland Group, Sol Zakay, adds: “The Walled Garden has created an excellent space to complement the new facilities of the hotel. I am very pleased to see this phase of Topland’s investment conclude and add another great space to the refurbished hotel and spa. The hotel continues to receive commendations and no doubt guests will have a great opportunity to enjoy this new space.”
The five-star Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa is home to 45 bedrooms and set in a Grade-I listen Georgian townhouse on the famous Royal Crescent in Bath. The property was purchased by the Topland Group in 2012 and underwent a major refurbishment programme before unveiling a new look in 2014.
