Charming! We had an absolutely perfect stay over New Year’s Eve & Day. The room was shockingly spacious, super quiet, and perfectly appointed - including free still and sparkling water refreshed every day, as well as a small bottle of fresh local milk in the fridge for coffee and tea in the morning. We hated to leave and can’t wait to return!

The Francis Hotel is in an ideal location for a visit to Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths, and to tour market stalls and Bath's great architecture. The hotel staff is great and it has a very good restaurant on site.
