The hotel is very near to Bristol Temple Meads Train Station which makes it very easy for travelers like us with children taking trains. The breakfast is sumptuous with wide variety. The bed is very comfortable. The staff are always ready to answer your questions with a smile. Value for money. There is also an Italian restaurant besides the hotel... More

We spent five nights here and were very happy with our comfortable accommodation. The location was ideal for us - just across the road from Bristol Temple Meads station and a short walk to the city centre. Our spacious top floor room was at the front of the hotel. On check in the receptionist asked if we were happy with... More

Hotel is well located in front of Temple Meads train station. The rooms are good and the bed is comfortable. Breakfast is included and meets expectations. Almost next to the hotel you can find a nice italian restaurant with reasonable prices.

Stayed for three nights recently and honestly couldn't fault it. Beds were extremely comfy so had excellent nights sleep. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Location was great and so close to temple meads train station. The breakfast was lovely sausages, scrambled egg and beans plus continental! Would definitely stay here again!

I stayed here with my 2 friends for a weekend in May. Great location. Just a short walk from the harbour, old town and shopping area. Nice and clean with a powerful hot shower. Breakfast was included in our room rate which was nice. But no bacon. Overall, a good place to stay.
