4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here on business and the hotel accommodation and food was as good as it always is however my room was on the second floor overlooking the busy side road to the harbour and it was very busy and noisy throughout the night. I pointed it out to the receptionist in the morning and she recommended I ask for... More

Stayed for a 2 night mid week break. Don't be put off by drab outside, rooms are well appointed, clean and well maintained. Room overlooking harbour as requested a bonus and great for people watching and surrounding view. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby so not restricted to hotel choice. Free parking in NCP car park included. Would... More

This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in for a long time and we go to quite a few every year. For a visitor to Bristol the location is ideal: close to the Hippodrome and Old Vic theatres, and to the harbour ferry terminal from which one can go by water to the S.S. Great Britain. The... More

Stayed here for a weekend away in Bristol. Great location in the city and walking distance from the bars, restaurants and the city centre. We rung up beforehand to upgrade to a harbour-facing room and they accommodated free of charge. Great service and a lovely hotel - will definitely be returning.

Everything was first class, good choice at breakfast, room comfortable and staff very obliging. Ideal location for bars & restaurants on the Waterfront. Our room was overlooking the waterfront but wasn't at all noisy. ideal parking with direct access from the 'free' car park. Would definitely stay again.

We checked in early at about 11.30 and reception was quite busy so had a little wait but happily our room was already available even though we were advised it would be after 2pm. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Deluxe room on 6th floor had a wonderful view of the city, attractive furnishings and temple spa toiletries. In... More

Stayed one night at The Bristol Hotel with my wife to see a show at the Hippodrome.Everything about the hotel was 1st class in my opinion, but the location is the best thing as it is close to all the bars and restaurants on the Waterfront and the Hippodrome and Colston Hall are just a short walk away

We stayed one night for a family wedding anniversary. The hotel staff were very helpful, let us check in early, and arranged for flowers and wine to be provided as a gift in a room. The rooms with waterside views would be very noisy, we faced the street and it was quiet.

Hotel simply stunning, choose the hotel for its location. Easy walking distance for the shopping centre and the bars. Decided to eat at the Bristol grill, certainly not disappointed. Would highly recommend this hotel.
