About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- A "jaunty, neo-Regency style pervades the hotel", which occupies seven interconnecting Grade I-listed Georgian townhouses on Queen Square, which is "one of Bath's most notable architectural set pieces", according to The Daily Telegraph
- Many of the city's top sights, including Bath Abbey, the Roman Baths, Thermae Bath Spa and the Royal Crescent, are less than 10 minutes' walk from the hotel
- The hotel's Brasserie Blanc restaurant features "diligent and friendly" service and a menu of French classics created by Raymond Blanc
- Guestrooms come with fine Egyptian cotton sheets on beds, fluffy bathrobes and luxury toiletries
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.
