Pride of Britain Hotels has reached its self-imposed capacity with the election of The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa in Bath into the consortium.
The collection of independent, often family-owned luxury properties across the UK has announced the five-star Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa as its newest member, taking the Pride of Britain Hotels consortium to its 50-hotel limit.
The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa is owned by Topland Group and is operated by general manager Jonathan Stapleton who has been at the property since October 2014.
The hotel comprises 45 bedrooms and suites and is the only hotel to be part of the iconic Royal Crescent in Bath. Topland Group carried out a £5m renovation across the property soon after acquiring the business and in 2016 the hotel was awarded five AA Red Stars for its excellence.
General manager, Jonathan Stapleton says: “We are so pleased to be joining such a well-established and respected brand, which represents some of the most prestigious properties in the UK.”
Peter Hancock, chief executive, Pride of Britain Hotels, says: “We are delighted to welcome The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa into our collection of independent properties around the UK. With its outstanding architecture and fine location in the centre of Bath, it adds greatly to Pride of Britain’s offering, which now spans 50 amazing places to experience the very best of British hospitality.”
Hotels in Pride of Britain range in size from 11 bedrooms to 130, with properties such as Lucknam Park. Gravetye Manor, Seaham Hall and the Grove of Narberth part of the portfolio.
