Bath’s historic Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa this September celebrated entering a new chapter in its prestigious 250-year history by emerging with a fresh and unfailingly luxurious new look, thanks to the expertise of Woodhouse & Law. We delve into how the creative work of the brand helped to reimagine the luxury interior of the hotel’s spaces.

An award-winning local interior and garden design company with a specialism in modernising listed and period property in the city, Woodhouse & Law were appointed to transform the bedrooms, drawing room and lobby of the landmark Bath-based building.

A wealth of experience across the high-end residential sector can be seen in the beauty of the finished bedrooms, inviting and warm, imbued with new energy, while retaining the integrity and elegance of the original architectural features.


Step Into The Lobby

Seeking to connect the lobby with the reception, bar and restaurant, Woodhouse & Law looked to the hotel’s beautiful gardens for inspiration. Architectural lighting highlights the handsome pediment over the entrance to the drawing room and armoires to either side of the fireplace. The fresh, vibrant palette lifts the space, creating an impactful, welcoming and truly memorable entrance to the hotel.


Feel At Home in the Drawing Room

The drawing room of the hotel is a wonderful space, with ornate plasterwork and triple sash windows; details the Woodhouse & Law team wanted to bring to the forefront. Original antique portraits are contrasted with an invigorating contemporary piece in bold colours, which brings fresh energy to the room.

Occasional tables create cosy, intimate spaces, while fringed ottomans provide versatile additional seating. New window treatments are in keeping with the classical style; designed to dress the window neatly, without obscuring the views.

The room is accessorised so that the grandeur of the space is offset by softer touches. Architectural lighting subtly highlights key details, with the likes of an LED showcasing the pediment over the door and uplights accentuating the beauty of the marble fireplace.

An integral space for the reception team at check in, guests immediately feel relaxed and at home for their stay. The new scheme seamlessly complements the contemporary, elegant feel throughout the hotel, while celebrating the intrinsic link between its history and location.


Discover Bedrooms Bringing the Outside In

Woodhouse & Law relished the opportunity to refresh and modernise each space, ensuring that rooms offer a luxurious, comfortable place for guests to escape to. Woodhouse &Law adopted a playful approach to each scheme, with contemporary furniture and lighting sitting alongside restored antique armoires.

As befits the modern five-star experience, bespoke new cabinetry by a local maker in each room houses refreshments, while USB ports enable quick and easy tech charging for guests.

The hotel’s decision to invest in rejuvenating their space, will in turn create a unique marketing opportunity, entice new guests and ultimately lead to an increase in bookings.
