In my opiinion location, standard of furnishings, helpful staff, quality of food all deserve 5 stars. However the room we had at the side of the building on the 4th floor was the smallest we have ever experienced. The distance betweeen the bed and the walls on both sides was about two feet!. We are seasoned travellers (at least 6... More

Stayed on a Friday night, lovely 6th floor room overlooking the harbour. Room was clean, spacious and comfortable, loved the little extras and special touches. Bed was soooo comfortable, slept like a baby! Staff were great, nothing too much trouble. Free car parking next door was a big bonus! Didn't stay for breakfast but restaurant looked lovely. Will definitely stay... More

Despite the outside, the inside is very smart and well done. The free parking in the NCP next door is great. The rooms are lovely - we had a great view over the harbour, but I imagine that the view is not so great from the internal rooms so make sure that you get an outside room! The sound proofing...

Nice staff, check-in was easy and efficient. The bar looked small (didn't use it) but okay. Rooms were alright, quite comfortable, but noise from the road outside was too much. Double glazing clearly wasn't working and only being on the first floor meant we were nearer the source. Probably better in rooms overlooking the dock. Free wi-fi though, bathroom clean... More

Stayed here for 1 night, the location is very good, Central to bristol and great views of harbourside. Rooms are costly (£170),. Rooms very clean and bed extremely comfortable. Handy multi storey car park attached to hotel.

This was a first ever trip into Bristol, which was to attend a charity event to get the HMS Balmoral working again! The hotel's location is right on the waters edge, in a very central position and is extremely prominent. I booked the hotel based on the other reviews and was not disappointed! Tu Anh was brilliant when making the... More

This Hotel is spot on. A friendly welcome one feels that nothing would be too much trouble for the staff here. The rooms are v good and the bed is like sleeping on a cloud !! The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice for vegi's. You can park next door and the Hotel give you a ticket so the... More

Me and my partner stayed at the Bristol Hotel last weekend on a trip to Bristol. We booked the hotel through a third party website, so were surprised to hear that we had been upgraded to a superior room on our arrival! The hotel doesnt appear much from the outside (think dated concrete architecture!) but this in no way reflects... More

Stayed at the Bristol for midweek using it as a base for going to Cheltenham races and it wasn't a disappointment. Easy to reach from station or there is plenty of parking adjoining hotel. Nice greeting and got an upgrade to a room overlooking the harbour-side which was very pleasant viewing and a good sized room as well. Great bed... More
