Stayed for one night after Glastonbury so was looking forward to a bit of luxury. Was quite surprised to see how small the room we booked was, picture on booking.com was very misleading. Very little room around the bed. Bathroom also very small and shower door was basically useless as water went straight through the gap at the bottom. On... More

I stayed at the Bristol hotel last week, normally I stay at the Radisson Blu but this time they where asking silly money to stay there. The reception was highly efficient and the room was super comfortable and super quiet which for a down town location can sometimes be a challenge. The Bristol Hotel really is one of the best... More

It was a short visit, but I was extremely impressed with the quality of the rooms and the wide range available for breakfast. The location by the river for breakfast was lovely. I would definitely visit again.

Lovely place. Room was clean and well-kept. Bar staff were very polite and friendly. Drinks were expensive but no more than you'd expect from a hotel. Great location and views of the quayside and restaurants.

The room was so hot, we considered going home! It was also very noisy with the windows open - just a little bit. We had 2 rooms on the 5th floor facing the road at the front of the hotel. The rooms were a decent size and well equipped although the bathrooms are tiny. Could you actually sit on the... More

We booked the hotel for a theatre visit to Bristol. The hotel is ideally located, not too far the theatre but not right in the city centre. We took a package deal with pre theatre dinner. From start to finish everything was excellent - the booking, parking, check-in, room, food and service. This is the second time we've stayed -... More
