The first thing that struck me (not literally, but almost) when checking into our 2nd floor room of the Francis Hotel was the low ceilings. I'm 5'11 and standing on tip-toes my head was a couple of inches from the ceiling, so if you're taller than about 6'3 you might want to avoid this place. Taking a shower (the type where you stand in a bath tub) I had to hunch over to avoid my head touching the bathroom ceiling.
Other than that though it was a nice enough hotel. Room was a decent size in the horizontal dimensions, standard wi-fi was free (and fine for web browsing), with the option to pay if you need a high-bandwidth connection). We liked the Roger+Gallet bath products. Location was fine in that we could easily walk everywhere so the car never had to leave the hotel's car park (which was a bonus, because some of the roads in Bath are pretty tricky to negotiate).
