From start to finish our stay at The Bristol Hotel was perfect. Firstly it was a bargain, very reasonable for the price. Then when we arrived we were told of free parking in the NCP in the same building! The reception staff were total professionals; friendly and informative with very good attitudes. Design and finish of he place was ideal... More

The location of this hotel is brilliant especially if you want to visit the harbour side which is what we did to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. We were given a free upgrade on the top floor overlooking the river which was lovely and spacious and had everything we needed. We ate in the hotel on the sat evening in... More

My partner and I booked 2 nights to stay in Bristol to discover the city. This hotel is located right in the town centre, near the river and within a short walk to the shops. The room was not very spacious but there was sufficient space for the 2 of us - the storage was a bit limited dues to... More

Just spent a night in the Bristol Hotel as we were celebrating our twins' 40th birthdays in Bristol. The experience here was so much better than bedding down at our daughter's house which is what we usually do. Everything from the friendly welcome to the amazing breakfast buffet was wonderful. We appreciated being up-graded to a deluxe room. A comfortable... More

Having just read some negative reviews I felt I must add our positive review albeit a few weeks late. My husband and I stayed for one night on our 30th Wedding Anniversary earlier this month. We could not fault the Hotel or its staff in any way and we have stayed in many hotels. The room was clean and plenty... More

The hotel is fantastically situated, the rooms are comfortable and clean, although the bathrooms are somewhat small. Bar and restaurant good and staff attentive and friendly. They just need more staff at the reception desk at known busy times - i.e. at 1030 when they can anticipate people will be leaving, we had only 1 person serving so it was... More

My husband and I and two friends spent three nights over last weekend at The Bristol Hotel. The service was impeccable, the hotel clean, the staff helpful and polite and the breakfast excellent. The location on the quayside and yet within easy walking distance of the centre is perfect. If we stayed in Bristol again we would choose this hotel,... More
