Actually quite impressed with the hotel. It's location is directly across the road from Temple Meads station. Didn't try to walk into town to go shopping, just got a taxi instead, so can't comment on how long that would take. Room & bathroom clean & quite impressed with the size of both. Shower was a walk-in type & was very... More

This hotel is a clean and tidy budget hotel, with friendly helpful staff. The breakfast is the standard Holiday Inn Express style; cooked items are a bit average, but the cereals, yoghurt, fruit, toast, etc. are always good. The location is good for eating out in the evenings, an easy 10min walk into the town centre where there are lots... More

We chose this hotel because it had airco - that worked, but the stream was directed in such a way that I had a stiff neck in the morning. Breakfast is OK, but gets boring after a day. Staff is not very friendly. Rooms are very small. The hotel is next to a very busy road, but there is no... More

Located directly opposite Bristol Temple Meads Railway Station, it was ideal for a planned 06-00 departure for an excursion which was unfortunately cancelled at the last minute. However we stayed two nights and in all were quite happy with our stay. It's a busy Hotel, and full of Students (?) on Saturday night, so breakfast was busy on Sunday morning.... More

Check in was excellent as was parking, we used the attached NCP with voucher from reception - total £4.50! Room was clean & spacious, shower big and water hot. Breakfast said continental but also had sausage, beans and... More

I stayed at this hotel in July, 2015. If you are looking for a hotel close to the train station, this would be a good choice. If you want somewhere close to the city center, there are better places to stay. Although many Express sites are modern and comfortable, this one is not. The internet didn't work. The door leading...

This was an overnight stay in Bristol and I was looking for a central hotel close to the station in order to pop through to Bath for part of the day. It looked like a sixties cement exterior but was perfectly Ok once inside. The staff were helpful. In terms of location it more or less faces the main railway... More
