Francis Hotel, Bath – MGallery Hotel Collection

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 less than 10 minutes' walk 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

"Lovely building. Good selection for breakfast."

Situated on 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 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. You can also 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 there. 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, and tea- and coffee-making facilities and mineral water.

The hotel is very nice and in a fantastic location, only a short walk to the town center, easy parking in the back of the hotel. All staff very friendly. We also had a dinner in the hotel restaurant and I cannot recommend it enough, both dinner and breakfast very tasty. The only minus for me was that the room was cold and even though we had the heating on constantly it did not seem to make much difference. I would come and stay again.

Our room had recently been renovated and there was still a strong smell of fresh paint. The bathroom had a few problems: the toilet seat was very wobbly, as too was the hot water tap and the hand towel holder came away from the wall. Also I did not take a shower in the bath as I felt too insecure without any gripper bars and having to climb over the bath sides - definitely not good or safe for more elderly clients.

Enjoyed the Raymond Blanc Brasserie in the hotel and their delicious cheese shuffle. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a good deal. Have not yet tried the complimentary bottle of wine.
