Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery by Sofitel
Ranked #17 of 34 Hotels in Bath
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 16, 2014

I would highly recommend this hotel in central bath. It is a few minutes walk from the main attractions. Is clean, comfortable, 'well turned out' and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Wait for a deal though as it is a bit pricey.

This was our second visit to this charming luxury hotel. Because of the nature of the Georgian building the rooms may be smaller than expected but they are well presented with every amenity you require. The staff are warm and friendly. Whats was a lovely touch was that they remembered us from our last stay last year and left a personal welcome note in our room. The public rooms are well decorated and very comfortable for relaxing, having a drink or even afternoon tea. The Brasserie Blanc is an excellent restaurant addition to the hotel.

I was very disappointed with this hotel. Its rated as 4 star and it was quite pricey. We paid extra for a more superior room. It was clean and comfortable but I just didn't get the feel that it was anything special. Staff were fine ......can't really explain why I wasn't overly impressed. It is a hotel that is in a great location but not sure that justifies the cost of their rooms. It seemed to me to be a nice clean three star at best......suppose that's bath for you though.......

in summary a clean comfortable hotel in a very nice location....

I was so sad leaving the hotel, my stay was absolutely perfect and lovely. I was in a room so nicely decorated and nothing went wrong. I love the shower with the picture of the Roman Baths, the old telephone, the little sofa and the comfortable bed. Lot of choise for breakfast, à la carte English breakfast + continental buffett... do not miss it!
Francis Hotel MGallery exceeded my expectations! I can't wait to be back. Thanks, Michela

We took two rooms: A double and a twin.
The plus side: great location, funky design, pleasant staff.
Not so brilliant: The rooms have been designed in a quirky mix of traditional and tongue in cheek but the practical side lets it down. The rooms don't seem well thought out. Apart from the cupboard no real place to put clothes. The bathrooms are tiny - no space to put your toiletries. IAlso not all feature rooms have baths. For two people we were provided with one towel and had to hunt for the other. One only room in the bathroom
It is noisy to sleep on the park side - though pretty; quieter but not pretty on the parking side.
Overall a pleasant stay but with lowered expectations.

Thank you for your feedback; I’m pleased you found the staff to be pleasant and liked the location of the Hotel. All the Feature rooms in the Hotel have showers only, although the bathrooms can vary in size; the second set of towels is placed in the cupboard. Should you return, request a room at the back of the hotel at the booking stage and we will do our best to make your stay with us a comfortable one.
