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 20 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.

Breakfast is served in the oak-floored dining room, with its burnt-orange balloon-backed chairs and brick-red fireplace. Enjoy afternoon tea in the first-floor lounge, which features velvet Chesterfield sofas, or dine in the chic Brasserie Blanc. The menu showcases a range of classic French dishes created by Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc. The bar offers more informal food, including sandwiches and salads made with locally sourced ingredients.

The bedrooms have been recently refurbished and Classic Rooms come with Egyptian cotton sheets, fluffy bathrobes, luxury toiletries and free Wi-Fi. Many look out over leafy Queen Square. Upgrade to a Feature Room for a 4-poster bed, striking black-and-white wallpaper, an espresso machine and a vintage telephone.
