Our experience was fantastic. We were upgraded, received a personal message from the duty manager (hand-written card) and had a free hot chocolate with marshmallows at reception. The room was beautiful with a stunning view of the Watershed. Excellent value - I will be back.

In Bristol for son's graduation at the cathedral. The Bristol Hotel was very convenient, staff were helpful and polite, room was clean. We could hear music outside until late which disturbed us rather but everything else was good including breakfast.

Stayed here with a group for the weekend. Very helpful staff at all times. Plenty of space for the groups' needs. Excellent car parking next door which was free for guests. This was a great money saving plus. Fantastic city centre quayside location. Can easily get to shops, bars and attractions etc. 60s hotel with rooms that are now small... More

We went to the bristol for a birthday treat, and having researched online we decided that the Bristol, was the best place to go, as it offered a special " festive afternoon tea" so we would combine my birthday with a Christmas theme. What a poor choice! The venue itself is very pleasant and comfortable, and the staff were very... More

I stayed at the Bristol while on business. I chose the hotel because of its location and I wasn't disappointed. Anywhere in the city centre is 5-15 mins walking distance. The hotel overlooks the canal, although the room I was put into overlooked other rooms and they declined to give me a canal facing room...disappointing. The things I didn't like... More

Yeah, good spot, very clean, free wi fi, free parking and affordable too. Spacious room, though the bathroom was a touch compact! Helpful check in and check out. all you need for a one nighter. The location is fantastic, and a very short walk to the finest area of Bristol. Worth pushing the boat out ( only a little) versus... More

The Bristol Hotel is in a great central location. It doesn't look too appealing from outside, or reception, but the rooms have been good both times we've stayed. I was offered a river view room at check in, but opted for a quieter room facing inwards. It was compact, but fine for one person for the night, and stylishly decorated.... More

My other half booked this hotel, last minute when going to the balloon fiesta in 2013. He naturally went for the most expensive deal online as he was planning in whisking me away for a long weekend to propose in a hot air balloon. When we arrived after the 4 he journey... The hotels appearance from the road was not... More

We stayed for a weekend and found it was a great location for all we had planned. Right on the floating harbour with plenty of eateries and king st with lots of old buildings and pubs. Cabit circus was a 15 minutes flat walk, also near to the theatre. We were on the 6th floor and found the room clean... More

The public multi-storey car park is right next door, and reception give you a free exit ticket, so free parking !!. I enjoyed a first class meal in the restaurant, with excellent service. The room was modern and comfortable with good free wifi access. The buffet style breakfast was very nice with good service too. Overall a very pleasant stay... More
