I booked a standard room, which was somewhat of a disappointment. It had a very comfortable bed, but storage space was inadequate. Also, the bathroom had been designed for the residents of Lilliput. That said, the Francis Hotel is a nice residence, very clean and nicely appointed. It you can splash out, go for a larger room.

We visited the Francis Hotel on 27 November for 3 nights in order to visit Bath’s Christmas Market and explore the sites of the city. We arrived at 12 noon and managed to get one of the last parking spots in the car park. Like most city centre hotels parking at the hotel is limited. We were very warmly welcomed... More

My partner and I stayed for two nights in Ocotber. We booked a superior room. When we checked in we were told that our room wasn't ready- even though I had emailed before to advise what time we would be arriving. When we eventually checked in, our room was extremely dark and very small. I phoned the front desk to... More

We visited the hotel for a drink in the bar at about 5.30 pm. It was not busy and we thought it would be a peaceful place to have a drink away from the extremely busy Bath Christmas market.

Our second time to stay. The location is perfect - a couple of minutes to the main high street and the Royal Crescent. The rooms are quite big with huge beds and I love the black and white tiled bathrooms. We found the staff were attentive and helpful.

Stayed here over the weekend, the hotel was good, staff helpful and bed comfortable and room clean. Couple of things which stopped me from giving 5*'s.

Some people are very hard to please. Having read some of the nit picking reviews from previous clients, I nearly didn't book this beautiful hotel. That would have been a tragedy.
