Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery by Sofitel

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • A "jaunty, neo-Regency style pervades the hotel", located in early 18th-century, Grade-I listed Georgian townhouses on Queen Square, "one of Bath's most notable architectural set pieces" (The Daily Telegraph)
  • Some of the city's top sights, such as Bath Abbey, Thermae Bath Spa and the Royal Crescent are all within a 10-minute walk away from the hotel
  • The on-site brasserie, where "the service is diligent and friendly", has been created by Raymond Blanc and offers a "French menu with some international elements" (London Evening Standard)
  • Guestrooms come with fine Egyptian cotton sheets on beds, fluffy bathrobes and luxury toiletries

"The location and attention to detail within the rooms."

Overlooking Queen Square in the centre of Bath, the Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery Collection is spread across a row of Georgian townhouses. The hotel's design nods to the buildings' history, with richly coloured wallpapers, a mahogany grandfather clock in reception and historic blue plaques. Original black-and-white photos and 12 hand-drawn illustrations of life in the 1800s tell the story of the buildings.

Bath's top attractions, including the Thermae Bath Spa, Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths, are less than 10 minutes' walk away, while Bath Spa station is half a mile from the hotel. Queen Square has its own enclosed garden, with an obelisk in the centre that was erected in 1738 for the Prince of Wales.

You can opt for afternoon tea in Emily's Tea Room, which features velvet Chesterfield sofas. Dine in the chic Brasserie Blanc, where the menu showcases a range of classic French dishes created by Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc -- breakfast is also served here. 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 connection, and offer tea- and coffee-making facilities and mineral water.

Location, reception rooms and staff generally were excellent
Other Comments
We thought that the restaurant let this hotel down. The quality of food was very good but the dishes lacked any extra touches e.g. soup without bread unless we paid extra for bread. A fillet steak costing £24.90 with nothing else on the plate not even a lettuce leaf or two unless we paid extra. Other good restaurants in the area offered great food at similar prices or less which included garnish and vegetables. Further, it was very noisy in the dining room. We dined elsewhere after the first night and had a lovely meal in a quieter place for much less than at the hotel. I would recommend the hotel but suggest dining elsewhere in the evening. There are many good restaurants within walking distance.

Our room 215 was full of character but creaky floorboards in room above, draughty windows, traffic noise and nowhere to hang wet coats.
