November 1, 2021
royal crescent hotel bath guest review

We were delighted when guest Mr Lee Ruddin (pictured below) offered to send us a write up of his stay recently, and so we decided to share his experience as an RCH guest here in our blog!

Mr Lee Ruddin

“A Dacia-driving guest could feel like an interloper when pulling up outside The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa given the number of Range Rovers and Teslas parked at the apex (Nos. 15 & 16) of the semi-elliptical curve of 30 Grade I-listed townhouses. Yet Head Concierge Mark Hanks instantly made us feel at ease when retorting that the Sandero was probably worth more than the valet chit – exchanged for car keys – depending upon how much petrol it contained! (There was a fuel crisis in late September due to a lack of tanker drivers delivering to forecourts.)

national poetry day 2021

A peaceful night’s slumber for each of our guests is of the utmost importance to us, so we decided to celebrate this National Poetry Day (7th October 2021) with a selection of some of our favourite poems about sleep and dreaming.

Whether you are reading this under your own roof or right here with us, we hope that these poems inspire a perfect night’s sleep tonight…

Monna Innominata [I dream of you, to wake] – Christina Rossetti 

I dream of you, to wake: would that I might
Dream of you and not wake but slumber on;
Nor find with dreams the dear companion gone,
As, Summer ended, Summer birds take flight.
In happy dreams I hold you full in night.
I blush again who waking look so wan;
Brighter than sunniest day that ever shone,
In happy dreams your smile makes day of night.
Thus only in a dream we are at one,
Thus only in a dream we give and take
The faith that maketh rich who take or give;
If thus to sleep is sweeter than to wake,
To die were surely sweeter than to live,
Though there be nothing new beneath the sun.
