I was staying in "Superior Double Room" booked through booking.com. 1. Internet is dead slow (WiFi signal is good), probably < 100 kbits/sec. Impossible to use. 3G/4G is much faster. 2. Bath would hardly drain 3. Bed is very narrow. I can't see how it is Double. It is ok for single person, but if two were staying that would... More

Stayed two nights. Good central location close to waterfront. Parking included in room rate. Excellent breakfast with good choice of fruit and pastries as well as cooked. Enjoyed pianist playing during Sunday morning. Room well equipped, clean and good size. Nespresso coffee maker in room. Staff attentive and helpful. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed two nights for a busines trip. The overall experience was very good. The staff offered solutions for any and all questions posed. They were warm and friendly. The rooms are adequate size, quiet and comfortable. The linens and towels are of good quality. The beds are more soft then firm. We upgraded from the standard to have the in-room... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in April. We had a superior room on the top (6th) floor overlooking the waterfront and beyond. Very comfortable, clean and spacious room with a lovely bathroom and toiletries. No noise at all - No doubt this would change if staying on a Fri/Sat weekend as the location is directly opposite many bars and restaurants.... More

We arrived not quite knowing what to expect as we paid a very reasonable price for our stay, you know what they say you get what you paid for. Not in this case we were amazed at the whole experience from the friendly staff to the quality of the room. The room that we stayed in was 413 which was... More

We strayed here for two nights at the start of April. The hotel reception was extremely helpful and friendly. Upgrading our room for no reason, which was a nice surprise. She also put us on the top floor as my partner was worried about the noise. The room was compact, but very well looked after. Shower was great and view... More

As with some previous reviews I read, don't be put off by any photographs of the outside of the building from... More

I booked this hotel using Avios miles (so it was free!) for my best friend and I to have a night away. I called the hotel the morning we were due to arrive just to double check they had our booking and spoke to a very friendly and helpful lady named Rebecca. On checking in, we met the other Rebecca...

I find little to fault with The Bristol Hotel. A great view from the front, not a problem from outside; even on a Saturday night. Only thing there is a little inter floor room noise and carpet could have been cleaner. Very minor quibbles. Nice touches included a great range of teas, in room coffee maker and friendly service. Would... More

Maybe I had read too many reviews before we got there but I had really high expectations for this hotel. When we arrived I was really impressed by the reception/lobby area, it was modern and had a bustling atmosphere. We were welcomed and swiftly checked in. We made our way up to our room and were pretty disappointed. When I... More
