The Royal Crescent Hotel

— Bath, Somerset

Designing a fresh interior for the renowned Grade I listed Royal Crescent Hotel.

It was a privilege to design a fresh interior for the renowned Grade 1 listed Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath. We worked closely with the owners to bring light and warmth to this historical World Heritage setting. With thanks to Pete Helme for photography.

The sensitive juxtaposition of period and modern furnishings preserved the traditional feel that gives this architectural spectacle such character, and the bright colour palette and geometric patterns bring it squarely into the 21st Century.

Delivered in seven phases, the scale and scope of the whole project was vast and took over two years to complete. We designed and delivered all public areas and private dining rooms as well as all 46 en-suite bedrooms and suites, each designed to be entirely unique.

“The complete refurbishment of all 45 bedrooms and suites and all public areas at The Royal Crescent Hotel were carried out to perfection by Clayton & Company. It was a massive task and from winning their pitch against other top London designers, through to the completion of the work two years later, every aspect of the job was handled professionally, efficiently and with patience and humour. It made a big difference working with designers who actually made the window treatments and soft furnishings in-house and who have their own fantastic fitters and installers.”
