The Francis has tried to merge the grandeur of the Victorian with a modern twist. And I can't deny it has done so well! Knowingly ostentatious, the hotel’s recent refurbishment includes wallpapers with felt portrait silhouettes, Victorian ladies painted on cupboards, thick royal blue carpets and red velvet chairs, alongside bright gilt framed mirrors and black laquerware desks. I found the black and white chequered bathrooms to be cool and un-cramped. In the feature rooms -wait for it- pictures of sheep are on the ceiling above your bed, to help you drift to sleep! Such touches are quirky and daring. Still remains the lovely traditional wrought iron entrance way with wooden revolving doors - I always find them a pleasure to walk through. Also, each of the 7 townhouses making up the Francis, contain a plaque describing who has lived there in times gone by. The staircases display photos from the Bath Historical Society: including one of the Beatles, who also stayed in this hotel. These homages to history are a nice touch and perhaps my favourite thing about the Francis is that among the proud modern flair there remains the unchangeable wonkiness of the corridor floors, warped by time (watch your step!)
