I was really looking forward to afternoon tea at Emily's tea rooms, the website which described all the different options available (gin infused, savoury or traditional) was so appealing. We chose the venue based on this. We should've gone elsewhere! To start with these options are no longer available & haven't been for some time. We should have been made...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 April 2017

Just got back from 2 nights in this comfortable hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful; it seems that nothing was too much trouble; everything was done with a smile and a cheerful word. The bedroom was clean and the bed comfortable, with a nice shower room. We had a room at the front with a view over Queens Sq,...

We booked one night on a "Secret Escapes" deal and were very impressed with the hotel from the moment we arrived. It was POURING with rain yet a young man nipped out as we drew up and offered to take our bags and park our car (£15 well spent!) and the cheery reception staff soon got us checked in and...

Very central for everything. Room clean. Not big & bathroom a bit small, but good shower. Quite expensive & parking a bit expensive at £15 per night ! Car is parked for you which is a nice touch. Everything is close by so probably worth the cost. Also has a really nice restaurant

This hotel is situated close to the centre of Bath ,but positioned on a street overlooking a park area, therefore the best of both worlds Hotel and rooms we're excellent, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated Staff helpful and friendly.

My recent three night stay here was nice enough, good sized room and comfortable bed. The hotel is located on a lovely square and is very close to the high street, so convenient for pretty much everything. The restaurant doesn’t seem to be affiliated with the hotel which is odd when you try to charge things to your room, I...

My husband surprised me with a weekend away at this beautiful hotel for my birthday. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel like royalty. We arrived early but this wasn't a problem as our room was ready. Our car was parked for us and our bags taken to our room. You do have to pay for parking...

We came to the Francis hotel on a group tour. Even by European standards the bathroom is tiny. The lighting in the room is awful, barely enough to read a book. The beds are hard and lumpy. Restaurant is mediocre. Don't recommend and we won't return.

Dear travelarteest. Thank you for taking the time to post a review following your recent stay with your tour group. With a wide variety of room types in our hotel i'm sorry we were unable to provide a bathroom size comparable with others in your large party. Thank you too for your constructive feedback regarding the restaurant. I wish you...

Hotel is perfectly situated, room is very comfortable although the bathroom was quite compact. Car parking could be an issue if you don't get there early since spaces were limited. Decorated beautifully with a modern take on regency style. Great cocktails in the bar which we took full advantage of! Avoid the restaurant for breakfast or dinner. Coffee was atrocious...
