Don't let the external appearance of this hotel fool you. The attentiveness and quality of service is exceptional. Clean and comfortable rooms with free wifi. Excellent food and comfortable social areas. Excellent location for central Bristol and close to bars and restaurants that line Harbourside.

Stayed Saturday and Sunday night. Room was clean and a good size. There is no parking at the hotel of in the street outside but the hotel is adjoined to the NCP next door and you can get your parking refunded but remember to ask.

The Bristol's location might be described as "central to Bristol" which translates to "no where near anything" but what a great place to stay! The staff were attentive, offered advice and opinions about both the local ales on tap in the bar and the "dish of the day" - it was all spontaneous - not a rehearsed act. My advice... More

Lovely modern fresh linen smelling room with soft beds and duvets..that's all I ever need...cleanliness with softness. That luxurious feel...and the free car park was a bonus. Lovely harbour side area beside loads of restaurants and wine.
