Good location for a stay in Bristol. We did the Bubbles and Berries package, not that great, berries came in a sugar basin and bubbles were Cava. Room was a "Superior" room, in fact it was ok, rather compact and on that particular weekend it was very, very hot. A/C was not working very well so not very comfortable. Breakfast... More

Went to this hotel to meet up with family as we had not seen each other for some time as we all live far apart. I am so glad we picked this hotel. Staff were very friendly on arrival, check in was very easy, and bonus we got up graded for free. Room was very clean and had everything that... More

My trip to Bristol at The Bristol Hotel wouldn't of been the same without the hotels location!nits so close to everything! Front he morning and evening restaurant you are looking over the floating harbour and just behind that are all the museums and it's barley any distance from St Nicholas Market. The hotel staff were very welcoming! Don't forget to... More

The Bristol Hotel is located in the center of the city, and therefore everything is within a walking distance. Sadly, there were 2 problems- the room was too hot, and the air conditioning could not cope with it, also the air conditioning unit was overgrown with green mould (the openings of its wooden casing).

We stayed as a couple for a weekend for daughters graduation. Fabulous entrance and pleasant and helpful staff on the desk. We were allocated a room at the front of the hotel looking out at the waterfront, which was lovely. Room was so lovely, spotlessly clean with a huge bed, which was so comfortable. There was a large swivel chair... More

Ok, so maybe the weekend of 26/27 July 2014 was quite warm, but surely Bristol gets other hot days during summer. We were "upgraded" to a superior room on the 6th floor which was large and of fair quality. Shower and bathroom essentials all nice and modern, good selection of shower gel, shampoo's etc. Decent Nespresso machine, shame the aircon... More

I stayed at this hotel recently and found it to be a lovely comfortable hotel on the waterfront with bars and restaurants in very close proximity. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast very good. During my stay I had a problem with the temperature of my shower and within 30 mins of reporting it to the deputy manager I... More

We booked the hotel for a weekend stay. We upgraded to a superior double room. I use a lot of hotels on business so I have a good idea of room quality. In summary the weekend was spoilt due to the room and the entire floor being so hot it was impossible to use. I'll be as fair as I... More

We stayed at a The Bristol Hotel for one night and were very impressed by the service, the quality and the friendliness of staff. The hotel car park is right next door and completely free, which is rare for a city centre hotel. We were given a complimentary upgrade on arrival, our room was; fresh, large and well equipped. Only... More

Stayed in the Bristol Hotel for the first time. Have stayed in the Radison Blu previously. Would certainly stay in ther Bristol Hotel again for the location is perfect, the River Grill Restaurant is a beautiful setting. The hotel is reasonably priced and staff were all respectful and courteous. Had a wonderful weekend in the city.
