Bath gains 5-star hotel

Accor is getting ready to launch its second UK MGallery hotel.  The Francis Hotel Bath is due to open in May.  Last October it very successfully introduced the St Ermin’s Hotel in St James’s, London.  The MGallery Collection started in 2008 and today encompasses almost 50 upmarket hotels in 18 countries around the world.

The 98-room Francis Hotel is a Georgian Grade I listed property located in Queen Square, part of Bath’s World Heritage Site.  The opening follows an intensive £6m refurbishment transforming what was previously the Mercure Bath Francis Hotel to its former glory.
Jonathan Sheard, Managing Director Operations for MGallery and Mercure Hotels, commented: “The opening of our second MGallery hotel in just six months is further evidence of Accor's commitment to growing the MGallery collection in the UK."
"The MGallery collection stands for quality and distinction, and this hotel has both as well as being located in the centre of historic Bath.  Guests who stay at the Francis Hotel will experience the truly special personality of this totally transformed hotel.” www.mgallery.com
