The entire team at The Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa work incredibly hard to ensure an unrivalled guest experience for every moment of their stay with us. Our housekeeping team are no exception, continually pushing themselves to ensure every single bedroom and suite is pristine and ready to wow our guests.
This summer has been especially challenging for our housekeeping team owing to COVID-related recruitment issues, and so to show how much we value everything they do this Housekeeping Appreciation Week, we arranged for seven surprise treats for the whole team, to reward them every day this week!
We want to share our hidden acre of gardens with as many people as possible, so this year for the first time we joined The National Garden Scheme to open our gardens to the public in exchange for donations to the Scheme’s various nursing charities. Our two open days, on 5th and 6th July, raised over £900 for the Scheme, through online and cash donations.
We hope everybody is having an interesting week so far. As for us, we feel like we have woken up in an episode of Hedgehog Bridgerton!
We had a hot tip from Lady Whistledown that an amorous local male hedgehog has been paying our rescue hedgehog Daphne unchaperoned visits, resulting in four very cute baby hoglets. Check out this footage of our newest guests, captured by our Night Manager Patryk and our Server Lukasz.
Four weeks ago, we welcomed three baby rescue hedgehogs – Daphne, Jane and Beatrix – into our quiet acre of gardens. Unsurprisingly for nocturnal wild animals, sightings have been few and far between. So we were delighted to welcome wildlife photographer Ian Wade to our gardens one evening, to capture the girls in action!
As our new General Manager, Ben Danielsen, enters his third week, we are all celebrating retaining our Five Red Star Inspector’s Choice status, along with 3AA Rosettes and a Breakfast Award for the Dower House Restaurant.
