  • The hotel's Brasserie Blanc restaurant features "diligent and friendly" service and a menu of French classics created by Raymond Blanc

"This was our third visit to this hotel and we will visit again. We love that it is so central, has parking, very friendly staff and comfortable rooms. We stayed in a classic room this time, which gave us everything we needed, but probably would book an upgraded room next time just to have a bit of extra space to relax."

Overview

Situated on Queen Square in the centre of Bath, the Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery by Sofitel occupies a row of seven interconnecting Georgian townhouses. The hotel's design nods to the buildings' history, with richly coloured wallpapers, a mahogany grandfather clock in reception and plaques that give information about the houses' first owners. Original black-and-white photos and 12 hand-drawn illustrations of life in the 1800s tell the story of the buildings.

Queen Square has an enclosed garden, with an obelisk in the centre that was erected in 1738 for the Prince of Wales. It's in the city centre, less than 10 minutes' walk from Bath Abbey, the Roman Baths and Thermae Bath Spa. Bath Spa railway station is less than 15 minutes' walk.

The Circus and the Royal Crescent are less than 10 minutes away on foot. These streets of Palladian-style townhouses are the grandest in the city. Head to No.1 Royal Crescent to learn about life in Bath during the 18th century. Literature buffs can visit the Jane Austen Centre (five minutes' walk from the hotel) to learn about the author's life and times in Bath.

Afternoon tea can be taken in Emily's Tea Room, which features velvet Chesterfield sofas and wingback chairs. Meals, including breakfast, are served in Brasserie Blanc, which has a menu designed by Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc featuring a range of classic French dishes. The bar offers more informal food, including sandwiches and salads made with locally sourced ingredients.

Classic Rooms come with Egyptian cotton sheets, fluffy bathrobes, luxury toiletries, Wi-Fi, mineral water, and tea- and coffee-making facilities.

The restaurant Brasserie Blanc is also great for breakfast and dinner and seems to be very popular.

The hotel is lovely , shame they franchise out the restaurant since we last went , the standard of food has dropped dramatically, the hotel is still nice , wouldn’t recommend the restaurant, the quality of food is poor & prices high, you can get good food in nice restaurant for what they charge , also we paid to park our car in the hotel car park , thinking it would be safe secure parking , unfortunately our car wash broken into over night , & many items taken , & damage to the car , hotel manager was helpful & police were called , unfortunately other people car was also broken into , so the hotel car park isn’t as secure as would think , considering their £17.50 per night fee , We would return the Francis hotel tho as we have been going there for 15 years ,
