    We only stayed one night at The Francis Hotel but everything was as it should be. Friendly staff, clean room - particularly liked the lilys on the stairwell. Nice and central, Grade 1 Listed building. No complaints - would recommend.

    I didn’t see any pets in the hotel. It didn’t seem to me to be somewhere to take a pet. I’m not sure I would take my dog to Bath as a destination though. Not much scope for them to come with you into anywhere in town
