Everything about this hotel was excellent, with the breakfast having THREE types of meaty sausage. My only gripes are that it was a little hard to find the hotel in the first place and that the bathroom door had opaque glass in it instead of a solid door - very European, but not to my taste I'm afraid.

Just stayed for one night at the Bristol Hotel and had a very lovely time. I am not quite sure why perhaps our room wasn't quite ready but we were upgraded from a basic double to a larger very comfortable room on the 6th floor. The decor contemporary, nice bathroom and very comfortable king sized bed. The breakfast room overlooks... More

This hotel is worth paying a little extra for, and actually it's quite reasonably priced. It has a lovely relaxed and stylish feeling and the location is fantastic - central and in the heart of the harbour. The rooms are very clean, of great standard and size and with their own coffee machines! My only grumble is that in comparison... More

Very efficient Reception staff and good service in the Restaurant. A good and relatively central location with Bristol having much to offer. Very good car parking facilities adjoined to the Hotel. Absolutely does what it says on the tin and a bit more

Helpful staff from booking connecting rooms onwards. Great location on the docks. We enjoyed the Shaun the sheep trail! We stayed during the harbour festival and it was quite noisy but the good windows and curtains helped and we all slept fine.

This is excellent venue to hold a family reunion. Ideal for overseas cousins to enjoy the facilities and attractions in Bristol. All the party enjoyed themselves. The staff went out of their way to ensure that we all had very good time.

We stayed here for a couple of nights sightseeing in Bristol. The location was great for our purposes with all points of interest within walking distance. The welcome was good, friendly and efficient. The room was roomy and well laid out (not sure about a frosted glass bathroom door though). Good choice of coffee and water provided. The breakfasts were... More

Can't remember the last time I stayed in a hotel with such small bedrooms - if someone had indeed tried to swing a cat, the stains would have been all around the walls. The staff are ok if a little stand-offish! Our room overlooked an alleyway which seemed to echo with the noise of all the evening resellers. The bed... More

Spent 1 night at the end of June,excellent location with the Bristol nightlife on you're doorstep,had a harbourside room,after reading other reviews I expected it to be noisy but the room was very quiet.The carpark adjacent to the hotel makes parking very easy.Breakfast the next morning was excellent,would stay again if we were in Bristol for the night.
