Staying at the historic Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery by Sofitel is an experience steeped in history in the city center of a UNESCO World Heritage Site: Bath, England. This four-star hotel was originally built in the 18th century by a native Bath architect, John Wood the Elder, as part of a row of Georgian-style townhomes in what he called Queen Square. This historic square was created to rejuvenate the popularity and community Wood believed Bath had enjoyed in ancient Roman times, and he was correct. Wood himself lived in house No. 9, which eventually became what is today known as the Francis Hotel. After his death, the house was purchased by Soloman Francis and was turned into a boarding house. Francis’ wife continued purchasing the properties around No. 9, officially opening the Francis Private Hotel in 1884. It was severely damaged in WWII during the Bath Blitz, but the façade was rebuilt in the 1950s and the hotel still stands in all her glory today.

The hotel has 98 beautifully decorated guestrooms that offer luxury amenities to each guest. Exquisite, French-inspired dining is available at the hotel’s Brasserie Blanc, which serves traditionally-inspired cuisine with a twist. The restaurant also features a bar where the hotel’s own special champagne is served. The Francis Hotel is a great escape into the English countryside and offers a cozy, romantic atmosphere that is a perfect base for traveling in the area. Two well-appointed meeting spaces are available at the hotel for conferences or meetings and can also be catered by the delectable cuisine from Brasserie Blanc.

The historic city of Bath has much to offer for travelers seeking a unique and exciting historic destination. Guests to this destination will be able to experience the history of the famous Roman Baths and the spa tradition of this small town. Literary history buffs will enjoy learning about famed author Jane Austen and can retrace her steps through the city by visiting the Jane Austen Center museum. A short walk from the hotel, guests can stroll through the meticulously maintained Royal Victoria Park with the family or browse the Bath Guildhall Indoor Market. The Francis Hotel is perfectly situated to grant guests easy access to the wonderful attractions that make Bath a vibrant, thriving city.
