Apparently this was formerly a Jury's Inn, but don't let that put you off. This medium sized accommodation proves that the best things come in small packages. The plush furnishings, panelling and wallpapers suggest the luxury of the rooms. You will not be disappointed. Even better, parking is free, which is a bonus for anyone who knows how frustrating driving... More

Dear SusanneKU, Thank you for the great review, We were never a Jury’s Inn but we were a Jury’s Hotel (very few will ever know the difference but it is in the star rating), we then became The Bristol Hotel seven years ago and as you mentioned have invested significantly into the property. On a bad day Bristol’s traffic can... More

Lots of things about this hotel couldn't be bettered. Spacious well-equipped room, comfy bed, delicious food and the parking arrangement is the best I've come across anywhere. My only teeny gripe was the size of the ensuite bathroom; anyone of generous proportions would find it a tight squeeze, but that was only one room - maybe others are better proportioned.

This hotel is well located for the centre of Bristol. I was in one of the smaller rooms on the first floor but it had ample room and was nicely decorated and showing little sign of wear. The lobby area and the lifts were similarly smart. The bed was comfortable. When I arrived the hotel was busy and there appeared... More

Dear Thegreatoutdoors, Thank you for the review, I am sorry you did not have a great nights sleep, we have tripled glazed our windows but in this instance it clearly did not have the desired effect. If returning to Bristol, please feel free to drop me through a note and I will personally look after your reservation and ensure we... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on a short break, it was perfect for what we needed. Comfortable hotel, we couldn't fault the room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We will be staying here again next time we are in the area. Many thanks!

It's a nice hotel, comfortable bed, tiny bathroom, sadly the radiator started making a racket at 5.30am and didn't stop for an hour! We were offered (and accepted) free breakfast as compensation. The breakfast was excellent, freshly cooked and lots of choice, really nice bread, but I would have preferred a lie in!

Dear SusanneKU, Thank you for leaving us a review and more importantly reporting the issue to us whist you were here. Unfortunately, that radiator was air locked but we have now re3citified the issue so it does not annoy future guests. I am glad you enjoyed your breakfast offering at the hotel, Sincerely, Mark Payne General Manager The Bristol Hotel More

Stayed here for one night having visited before. Unfortunately booked for dinner having previously booked a table by the window to be seated and told this was unavailable it was clearly available however we were unable to have it. We never found out why. Bad start. It got worse. One member of our party ordered a steak, it arrived looking... More

Had a warm welcome from the receptionist, room was ready when we arrived 2pm, I had requested a harbour view room which we were given,I do think this was a bonus, lovely view of the harbour with several boats passing by.

We stayed for a weekend break in Bristol and found the hotel was perfect for our needs. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet (always important in a city centre) and the bed was comfortable. The hotel was busy during our stay which meant the breakfast service was under a lot of pressure, but the staff coped well, getting tables... More
