We spent my wife's BIG birthday weekend at The Francis Hotel with our son and daughter, their other halves and their four children. The hotel has a wonderful balance of correctness and friendliness. Nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are good. Restaurant is good. Location is perfect for visiting all the attractions that Bath has to offer. It is very...

I really don't think I can fault the Francis Hotel. It's location is absolutely ideal. Right in the town centre, no more than a 10 minute walk from any of the key attractions. Yet once you're inside, it's lovely and quiet. The decor is just lovely. Beautiful wallpaper in the public areas and the hotel has a signature scent which...

Everything fine except the BBC TV picture was pixalleted. Put down to bad weather on the night in question. Even after reporting it was improved but still difficult to watch BBC. Other channels were fine. Surely a large hotel can improve this and not be dependent on the weather!

What a stunning location. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Rooms beautiful looking out on the square. Just walking into reception you feel the history of the hotel flood over you. The plaques telling you who used to live in each house really does make you feel you are walking back in time. Close to all the attractions nothing is very...

Stayed here with friends who had booked. Very comfortable hotel, managed to have the car parked in the carpark, reception staff excellent. Great position to explore Bath from. Bar stayed open till late. Breakfast was ok, overall very good if expensive, they seem to up the prices when the rugby is on, waited ages for our car to be manoeuvred...

Whilst the place looks good and stylish, that cannot be said for the lunch service and food. Incorrect information given about gluten free food which could have been extremely unpleasant, long wait for first and main courses, and inedible food had to be returned. All in all a poor experience and we will not be returning.

Great hotel with fantastic location. The staff at the hotel are extremely helpful. The best part about the hotel is the historic tea room. you will be blown away by the tea range and the quality of the cakes.

So, first I'm well aware that there's a balance to everything, and I would like to start with the positives. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the location couldn't have been more perfect where it wasn't in the center of town so not too much noise, but still very close to everything you could possibly want to visit....

This very central hotel was quite good value. The wifi in the room worked well and the room was comfortable. There were though some things wrong that have left me feeling pretty dissatisfied. The room was not super clean- not dirty but grubby in the corners especially the bathroom. I mentioned this on check out. But the worst aspect of...
