It was a delightful week at the Francis. Impeccable staff and cleanliness. All within a few steps from all the Bath attractions we wanted to visit. The room was warm, quiet and clean. I will be back at the Francis for my next trip to Bath.

We have stayed here for many years and there are many reasons why we always return - the traditional warm atmosphere, the central location, the comfortable rooms. Had mentioned that it was my birthday and they had kindly welcomed me with some chocolates - lovely touch! Thank you.

Good position for the sites of Bath

Great place. Housekeeping a little poor in the room. Breakfast difficult to get in at a reasonable time. Hot breakfast cold plates and food not that warm. Staff very attentive and pleasant.

Well located, not a good stay

Don’t believe the photos, this is a basic hotel with pretty small rooms. The doors do not fit too well and my room Was flooded with light from the hallway all night. This hotel had photos of a pool and a gym but they don’t have a pool or a gym nor are they affiliated with one.

Not good excellent location put in a room on ground level no heating working and people eating outside and I had paid extra for superior room and I did not consider it superior then offered a room on top floor the furthest away from stairs and lift not working but we did not want to cart luggage anywhere else. Then on leaving we were overcharged and I had to make several calls to get sorted they compensated cost of parking for problems with room but to overcharge £212 was not good but now refunded. I asked for a new print out of bill twice but to date still havnt received so spoilt our stay and this had been a present

Excellent location

Great reception team welcomed us on arrival - explained the hotel and local attractions. Squeezed us in for breakfast despite arriving late evening.

The Francis Hotel was everything and more. Firstly the beautiful architecture outside, secondly are beautiful decor inside. The staff were incredibly welcoming and couldn’t do enough for us. When they realised that one of us had a birthday, they immediately placed a happy birthday message in chocolate and a small box of chocolates in our room…. how wonderful is that! Furthermore the rooms themselves are absolutely gorgeous clean and the beds were so comfortable. I cannot fault this hotel at all. And the service for our drinks etc was also great. Thank you. We will definitely be back.

I have stayed at the Francis many times and the experience was similar to previous stays. Unfortunately, the lift was broken when I arrived - luckily my room was on the first floor - and the room was freezing. I mentioned this, and the solution was to use the air conditioning unit to heat up the room. I think it is time to instal central heating.

Lovely hotel

K R. Couples - 14/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Comfortable rooms, friendly staff and a lovely breakfast. Due to limited childcare arrangements we could only manage 1 night away. The Francis was the only central hotel in Bath that would accommodate this on a weekend, so thank you Francis for understanding that some people are unable to get away for 2 nights. Highly recommended

Mid week stay

ds212021 Business - 14/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Great hotel, clean and comfortable. Nice décor and friendly and supportive staff. I would give the hotel a 5 if it wasn’t for the breakfast which is a real disappointment. Beautiful setting however the quality is that of a much cheaper b&b.

Could do much better

Jeb Friends - 13/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is well located but on a very busy square. I asked for a quiet room but was told that all the rooms at the rear were occupied (even though there were very few guests) and so was given a very noisy one at the front of the hotel which meant I wasn't able to get much sleep. The bed was lumpy/uncomfortable, the drain for the shower was blocked. The room was not properly cleaned despite the so-called "enhanced cleaning protocol" during Covid. The breakfast was poor quality and not good value for money. I was really disappointed with this McGallery hotel, lots of room for improvement.

Brilliant location

A very comfortable, enjoyable stay.

Good location for theatre, and a convenient meeting place.

M. H. Families - 12/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very helpful staff in the main hotel and well provided with facilities. The bedroom was a bit cold and we could not find a way of increasing the temperature. The organisation of the breakfast was not straightforward (coffee and toast seperate from the hot dishes) and there were some language problems. But overall a good stay in an elegant ambience.

Excellent stay! (But what's with the horse?)

Four friends recently enjoyed a two-night stay at the Hotel. Perfectly located just a short, level walk from the City centre. The rooms were well appointed, clean and the beds comfortable. Extensive choice for breakfast and the restaurant evening menu also had plenty of choice. The only downside on this occasion was that the lift was broken, however the Service Lift was available if needed. Helpful and friendly staff contributed to its ambience. The life-size 'plastic' horse (named Oliver) in the dining room was superfluous and no-one seemed to know why it was there! Adequate parking to the rear seemed costly but probably compared to public carparks. A very pleasant stay!

We were allocated room 216 on our arrival…a tiny room with the double bed against the wall which for 2 older adults one of which has mobility issues wasn’t ideal. So we asked to be moved explained the issues and were given room 8 which was ideal….Olivia was extremely helpful she helped with our luggage and took time to make sure the room was satisfactory….thank you Olivia.

LOVED the location! Quiet spot yet just minutes away from the Pump Room, the Abbey, restaurants & shops. The hotel has so much history & beautifully decorated. The room we stayed was not huge but enough room for two.

A Pleasant Stay

Relax10480887756 08/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

We had a good large room, with a comfortable kingsize bed and bedding. Very good to have sparkling water instead of the usual still, good selection of tea and coffee, cups and saucers rather than mugs - thank you. The main lift was out of action but the staff took us up in the service lift.
