We stayed at this hotel for a weekend and were delighted with the room and location. The room was trendy, very comfortable and well appointed. The location right in the heart of Bristol was great, with city centre restaurants, shops and theatres nearby. We parked at the NCP car park next door which was free of charge (the reception staff...

This is a wonderful hotel with extremely accommodating and warm staff and beautiful breakfast room setting. We were unfortunate to discover that the walls between rooms are pretty thin. We could hear drunk conversations in both adjacent rooms at 2am in the morning on our first night. This was easily remedied with a set of earplugs on the second night.... More

Trip for wedding anniversary. Perfect central location, within walking distance of the waterfront and lots of lovely bars. Room was compact but had everything you'd need. Very clean and modern ku decorated. Lovely comfortable bed and good black out curtains. Was pretty hot in the room but that was probably more down to the weather. Staff were helpful and friendly...

When we arrived to check in at roughly 19:30 my partner and I were told that they had experience a 'system error' and were double booked so were unable to accommodate us for the night. We had booked in advance for a birthday occasion, the hotel being in a perfect location etc. The guy on reception briefly explained that they... More

We stayed here for two nights to facilitate a family visit. I think the hotel is a conversion of a sixties office block so the ceiling heights are not great, as a result of which the rooms are hot (or at least our room was). It was described as "superior" but it was a fairly average business hotel room with... More

Chosen with the location in mind, the hotel was perfect for seeing all the sights that Bristol has to offer. We had a lovely room on the 5th floor facing away from the harbour so we didn't have too much trouble with noise (the revellers in the harbour front bars below do get noisy at night). On booking, we were... More

I was speaking at a conference the next day, so booked in for the night with my partner. The bed was very comfortable, the staff were friendly. I was a bit disappointed, since I had a business colleague join us for breakfast, that the bacon was stone cold at breakfast. The location was just great, next to the old docks.

Not much to complain about with this hotel The city centre location is excellent and easy to reach by public transport from the Airport. The staff are friendly & helpful probably because a lot of them are not British. No surprise there then Our room on the fourth floor was a good size with a big comfortable bed. It was... More

This is well located by the waterside. Lots of pubs and bars and restaurants. The rooms were very well equipped with irons and hair dryers etc. the rooms were spacious and well laid out and a great selection of teas and coffees in the rooms. The lobby area and restaurant were great. We were moved for breakfast on the weekend... More
