Francis Hotel Opens in Bath as Part of MGallery Collection by Accor

The Francis Hotel, which is located in the historic city of Bath, England, has opened on completion of a renovation project.

The hotel was opened to the public on May 28, 2012, as the Francis Hotel Bath, a member of the MGallery collection by Accor, a brand of hotels from Accor, a French hotel company.

MGallery is a portfolio of a luxurious hotels owned by the Accor group, which operates around 4,200 hotels and has 145,000 employees in 90 countries.

All MGallery hotels offer their guests the chance to experience a ‘Memorable Moment’, through a special activity intended to provide added guest satisfaction.

The historic Francis Hotel, which neighbours the city’s main attractions, the Roman Baths, Pump Room and Thermal Spa, has undergone a meticulous £6 million refurbishment to provide 98 distinctly styled bedrooms, as well as a luxurious lounge and bar, and a front parlour and breakfast room.

Karen Bassett, the hotel manager, said, ‘We’re very excited about the refurbishment and look forward to welcoming guests to experience our beautiful new hotel. It’s fantastic that the Francis Hotel is being honoured in this way and being brought back to the impeccable standard of its heyday.’

The hotel room rates commence from £109.00 per room, per night.

The Francis Hotel Bath was originally constructed from seven houses, joined to create a hotel by local hotelier, Emily Francis, in 1884. Architectural firm, Househam Henderson, has designed the current hotel interiors.
