A truly unique establishment in central Bath
With a central location in the beautiful city of Bath, the Francis Hotel Bath offers the whole package. Recently refurbished and now standing proudly as a glorious townhouse hotel, the Francis Hotel Bath is highly individual, both on the inside and outside, and promises to be a truly unique stay for guests. The France Hotel Bath’s location is fantastic, as it’s in the heart of the city, meaning the major places to visit are easily accessible. When it comes to facilities at the Francis Hotel Bath, they’ve got everything covered - a bar, lounge and the sumptuous Brasserie Blanc.
3 reasons to stay at Francis Hotel Bath
  • Beautiful townhouse architecture
  • Close to train station 
  • Central location for attractions 
Places of Interest
Ever tried your hand at falconry? It’d be foolish to visit Bath and pass up the chance to visit West of England Falconry! This is a great day out whether you're participating or simply watching, and it’s a fantastic idea for a birthday present. Heading back into the city, another quirkier option is Mr B’s Book Emporium, a unique store to take a look around - no book purchases necessary! For a more traditional activity, Bath’s abbey is highly popular, as are the wonderful grounds at No. 1 Royal Crescent. Another excellent walking option (with picturesque scenery, of course) is Prior Park Landscape Gardens with its lush greenery trails.
Rooms at Francis Hotel Bath
Personality is valued extremely highly at the Francis Hotel, and as a result, guest rooms are individually designed. What is guaranteed is contemporary style, space and comfort! The hotel has a real array of rooms: single, twin, double, deluxe and superior. When it comes to features, regardless of the type of accommodation, guests can enjoy Egyptian cotton sheets, sumptuous toiletries, a safe, complimentary Wi-Fi and a plasma screen television. There are 98 guest rooms at the hotel and in keeping with the relaxed ambience, some of these rooms come with breath-taking views of the city.

Gorgeous Hotel

This hotel is what you expect with a quality hotel. The detail in design of the hotel is so quaint and an art of work in itself. The room was a bit small but that may be because we paid for the standard room. Our shower was clogged and we couldn't take a proper shower unless we wanted to flood the hotel room. Besides that the concierge, Andrew, was amazing. He told us exactly what we needed to know and this is what you expect with good service. So that made up for the room.

Lovely but small

The room was comfortable and the bathroom was very nice. On the other hand, for the amount of money we paid, the room was fairly small. Also, the shower water tends not to stay in the shower, but that was just poor shower design. The shower did have a beautiful view of the Roman baths printed on the wall.

Great wedding day stay

Perfect location for attending my nephew's wedding. Centre of town close to the shops and attractions. Friendly helpful staff, comfortable rooms and good food. Could do with more hotel parking.

Great Location

I have stayed at this hotel many times before, but now the total renovation has been completed it has become a nicer place to stay. The location is perfect, as all the best shops are only a couple of hundred yards away. There is parking at the hotel for £15 a day but that is quite good value compared to city centre car parks. Our room was very comfortable, refurbished and well equipped. Mattress toppers on the beds are a good touch. Staff are friendly and well trained. We will be back!

Good location and value

Even if this hotel had the lowest star rating of all the hotels we stayed at during our trip, we nevertheless had a good experience at the Mercure and were very happy with our stay. We would certainly return on another occasion.
