Dan and I rarely have time to ourselves. Date night? What is that? The closest we get to having to a date, is a curry in front of the TV! But, last weekend we were delighted to steal a night away just the two of us.
The Francis Hotel is a perfect weekend city break. Situated in central Bath, within walking distance of the spa, Milsom Street shops and the Royal Circus, makes it a wonderful place to stay for those wanting a little culture and shopping.
Part of our stay included a twilight tour around the Roman Baths. Now, I have lived in Bristol most of my life, only 20 minutes away on the train, yet I have never visited the historic Roman Baths. Seeing the baths torch lit was pretty magical.
After our tour we had lunch in the Roman Baths Kitchen. A delicious three course meal which we devoured with gusto. With full bellies, Dan and I wandered the city at night, soaking up the Christmas cheer, the lights and stopping for a real ale at Colonna and Hunter.
The hotel room at The Francis hotel, was comfortable and beautifully decorated. The large bed was made with cushions and throws by Welsh textile designers Melin Tregwynt, and soft white sheets and pillows. The only thing I could say that was disappointing was that our room was situated on the third floor (in the eaves of the grand building) and it had very low ceilings. So low in fact, that Dan couldn't stand upright in the shower, or get his head under the shower rose! Something to think about when you book!
Dan and I loved having a night away alone. Time to talk, potter in shops, drink a good cup of coffee at Society Cafe. Bath is brilliant for all of that and more...
Dan and I were gifted a nights stay at The Francis Hotel with a tour and meal at the Roman Baths.
