« Great Hotel, Convenient Location »

The Hotel was very clean, with spacious rooms. The staff were very accessible and helpful. Excellent service in the dining room. Hot breakfast available, made to order. Extensive continental breakfast available as well. The bathrooms were clean and numerous toiletries available.

« Fantastic hotel, staff and location - didn't want to leave! »

We highly recommend this hotel. I have limited mobility so needed to be close to the centre of Bath and had to bring my car. I pre warned the hotel and was allocated a free parking space for the duration of our visit. When we arrived a member of staff spotted us in the car park and instantly came over to offer his help. This was the pattern for our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff all seem to be genuinely happy in their roles and positively enthused by helping guests! The hotel has been created from a number of traditional Bath town houses so has a quirky feel. The decor changes as you walk through the different 'houses' but each one has been appointed beautifully and sensitively - there's also a lift! We had the basic 'Classic' room which wasn't huge but was certainly spacious enough for two, lots of luggage and a wheelchair. I suffer from fibromyalgia so usually find that hotel beds leave me very achey but the double bed was incredibly comfortable and I slept better than I do at home - amazing. The location was perfect. Close to the Roman Baths, Thermae Spa, shops and many, many cafes and pubs. (Some of the Bath pavements are a bit tricky for those in wheelchairs but it's a friendly place and several passers-by offered to help us negotiate the odd obstacle we encountered.) We didn't take breakfast at the hotel so we can't comment on the food offered but the cocktails we tried in the lounge bar were lovely and so was the lady serving them. Finally, we must mention how touched we were by the kindness of the hotel staff and management - we were celebrating a 50th birthday and the cleaning staff must have seen the cards in the room because we arrived back after a long tiring afternoon to find a half bottle of champagne on ice, some petit fours and a lovely card from the hotel staff. Plenty of hotels are comfortable and well placed but the staff here make the Francis Hotel something really special. We can't wait to come back - thank you everyone for making us feel so welcome.

Dear clarity2016 We are delighted that we were able to make your celebratory stay in Bath an enjoyable one and thank you for sending in your feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip to Bath. Kind regards Mads Nielsen

« Beautiful Hotel »

The hotel is lovely. The rooms are massive and very nicely decorated. The staff were very helpful and professional. This is probable the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The only negative point is that the car park is expensive.

FrancisHotelBath, General Manager at Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery by Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear John B Many thanks for you review. It is fantastic to read that you think it is the best hotel you have ever stayed in! I am sorry that you found the parking charges to be high. Unfortunately, due to the lack of space in the centre of the city, parking is at a premium throughout Bath. We are very lucky to have a small car park at the hotel with charges that compare favourably with our competitors. We hope to see you again soon at The Francis. Kind regards Mads Nielsen

« Very enjoyable stay »

Attentive, courteous staff - would definitely stay again. The rooms were clean and well furnished and the location is perfect for going out. When we checked in, there was a small delay but we were offered complimentary coffee/tea and extended parking.

FrancisHotelBath, General Manager at Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery by Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear MrH186390 We do appreciate you taking the time to send in such positive feedback following your stay with us; it is appreciated by all. I hope we get the opportunity to welcome you back very soon. Kind regards Mads Nielsen

« Old World Charm »

Great Location, Great Front of House staff , charming property with lovely rooms, only let down by somewhat erratic service in the dinning room. Service front of house was excellent from staff who clearly enjoy their job. Even trainees were excellent . Will certainly return.

FrancisHotelBath, General Manager at Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery by Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear AlanLooney Thank you very much for your feedback following our recent stay. It is great to see that you were impressed with the Front office Team; they are delighted to have been mentioned and it has been a boost in confidence for the new members of the team. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Francis at some time in the future. Kind regards Mads Nielsen

« Friday Night at the Francis Hotel Bath »

An excellently positioned hotel right in the centre of Bath. The rooms were spacious given you are in a very popular tourist city. The towels were the finest I have experienced for a long time! The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.

Dear jeffsN3891WN Thank you very much for sending in a review following your stay with at The Francis Hotel Bath. Your comments are much appreciated by all the team and we do hope to see you again very soon. Kind regards Mads Nielsen

« Nice in the front and then... »

Hotel looks great from the road and the front of house staff were very welcoming and efficient. Same could not be said for housekeeping who did not acknowledge guests and they busied away - trolley edging into corridors and towels here and there.; even Premier Inn have worked on that and got it right. The hotel itself is very bland; long dark corridors and a room with a weird purple characterless decor. Room was spotless and comfortable, but fire doors bumped all night and mysterious fan and pipe noises made for a broken night's sleep. Would not stay there again - trip to Bath needs more than just another corporate hotel.

FrancisHotelBath, General Manager at Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery by Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear WillD941 Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent visit to The Francis. I’m pleased that you like the look of the hotel and the welcome you received on arrival. It is disappointing, however, that you found the housekeeping team to be less friendly. This is unusual as we are used to having positive feedback about the team. We treat all remarks with the utmost seriousness and have also noted your comments regarding the trolleys and towels which we are addressing. It is such a shame that you didn’t get the feel of hotel and its rich history. All of our rooms vary in size, shape and décor; perhaps a different room would have been more to your liking? I do hope that you will re-consider staying with us again if you are in Bath. Kind regards Mads Nielsen

« Lovely base for a visit to Bath »

Charming hotel with charming staff. Great location for a visit to Bath. Small car park. Breakfast was very good - interesting selections. Only minor comment would be attention to detail in the bedrooms. It was clean and tidy but looked as though it had been rushed - things not straight, a piece of paper on the floor under the sink not removed. But we had a very enjoyable stay. Many thanks

FrancisHotelBath, General Manager at Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery by Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear Chris C I am glad you enjoyed your stay but disappointed to read that the attention to detail in the room was not as it should have been. We have recently employed a new Housekeeping Manager and I am confident that the high standards that we strive for will be restored. Kind regards Mads Nielsen

« Brilliantly located boutique hotel »

Fantastic service from the minute we arrived. Nothing too much trouble. Lovely bedroom and bathroom, and the hotel itself is quirky and welcoming. Very comfy beds and bedlinen, nice extras such as bathrobe. Breakfast was excellent too. We'll be back!

FrancisHotelBath, General Manager at Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery by Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear Sarah B It is great to see you have had such a good break with us and hope to see you again very soon. Kind regards Mads Nielsen
