Very good hotel, very easy for the station (literally over the road). Friendly and helpful staff, room very clean and ample, free breakfast (always a bonus). No problems at all - well worth it. Parking behind the hotel which I believe can be done via the hotel but we used the public car park right next door, lit and covered... More

We chose this hotel purely for its location to Bristol Templemeads station as we were doing a train trip the next day and it was an early start and late return. As far as my wife and I were concerned the hotel couldn't be faulted. All the staff we encountered were so friendly and so helpful. Although we had breakfast... More

This HIExpress has a great location next to temple meads station, so you don't have to drag your bags into the centre of town. Aside from that, it is everything you now expect from this chain, nothing more, nothing less. I do think they could better with their breakfast offer at this chain... It is only average. But the rooms... More

Had a wonderful stay with my family in May, staff were helpful and the stay was great the only thing that let it down was the selection at breakfast could have been a little bit more. But every think else was great.

Went and stayed at this hotel the weekend of the 15th August.. Quick and easy check in, even with the slight hassle of parking the car. Our room for the weekend was on the 6th floor. The stairs was 12 flights so took the lift, not a big fan of lifts, it was big enough but it sounded old and... More

Visited Bristol last weekend and stayed here for one night. First impressions of the outside are not great - it's not a pretty building and it's on a busy road which is currently undergoing roadworks. However, as my review title indicates, first impressions can be deceptive. Inside, this hotel is lovely - bright, welcoming, smart, clean and modern. The reception... More

First time staying in holiday inn express, it is brilliant for an overnight stay. It is a 15 minute drive from the airport, and has early morning breakfast for anyone that is leaving early. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms were comfortable, and have plenty of room. The overall service of the hotel is very good, and... More

Hotel is in a good position opposite Temple Meads Station. Rooms at the rear are quiet, beds comfortable, breakfast was buffet style and very nice. There are some good restaurants nearby. East walking distance to the main shopping area and city centre.

Having to check in before parking is a bit of a pain, but as there's a choice probably makes sense. Park in the temporary spaces by the back door. Room clean and everything worked. Breakfast room stuffed full of Spanish tourists so had to fight for a table.
