Excellent hotel . We had a super room overlooking the harbourside, very large and well appointed room . The only down side was the bathroom which was TINY... so small you couldn't walk out of the bathroom without knocking the loo roll off the holder ( suggestion to hotel if you turn the holder the other way round this wouldn't...

The hotel is based in the city centre, with many bars and restaurants in the area and easy access to many of the tourist sites. Inside the hotel is very smart, and the staff are friendly and helpful. My room was clean and smart, the decor and bed linen was to a high standard. I didn't eat in the restaurant... More

This is the first negative review I have ever posted. I booked this hotel about 6 weeks before I was due to stay and paid in advance. I got a phone call a week later saying I could not now have the room at the rate I booked and they were cancelling my reservation. They refunded the money a few... More

This is a great hotel to visit Bristol with, lovely staff and affordable luxury. This was our second stay at the bristol hotel, the room was a smaller superior double, we treated ourselves to the deluxe last time and it was spacious with a few nice extras such as coffee machine and robes. The superior still had a comfy bed... More

This wasn't the fabulous experience I had expected, and I wasn't sorry that I was only staying one night. Positives: excellent location, helpful & friendly reception staff, pleasant decor, easy access/parking Negatives: very noisy road (there was no air con in our room and it was necessary to have a window open). Our original room was very small (even tiny)... More

Have stayed a few times now and it's consistently good. Friendly staff help to make it an enjoyable stay, rooms are well appointed, public areas very smart. Good breakfast with loads to choose from and it's lovely sitting in the dining room with panoramic views of the harbourside. Excellent location. Lots to like

The Hotel had nice rooms that are comfortable. The location was excellent smack in the middle of the Dock's redevelopment area. There is so much to do and enjoy, so many restaurant's and bars on choice. The area is being regenerated so has a new Mediterranean feel to the place, plenty of open space. The Hotel offers convenient parking and... More

Excellent location in the heart of the citys new dock redevelopment. Very handy parking in adjacent NCP carpark, which is free for hotel users and the ticket is valid for the whole of the day, so you don't have to move your car when you check-out. The hotel itself is very smart and tidy. We had the superior room B&B... More
