Accor to open second M Gallery property in the UK

11 Apr 2012 by BusinessTraveller

French hotel group Accor is to rebrand the Mercure Bath Francis Hotel, following an “intensive £6 million refurbishment” project.

The property will be renamed the Francis Hotel on May 28, joining London’s St Ermin’s Hotel under the M Gallery brand (see online news March 16).

The Francis Hotel is housed within a grade 1 listed property in Queen’s Square, and features 98 rooms, a lounge and bar, “front parlour and breakfast room”, and on-site parking.

Interiors have been revamped by architectural and design firm Househam Henderson, and there will be Brasserie Blanc restaurant adjoining the property.
