Lovely staff and nice hotel but you can tell it's had better years. The walls are very thin so I'd ask to be on a floor with less people possible. Excellent location though which more than makes up for any issues we had.

We had an enjoyable stay at The Bristol Hotel. Our room on the 5th floor facing the water was attractive and well maintained, the beds extremely comfortable, modern walk in shower room. You do get late night noise from the bars below but quite honestly this did not trouble us. The lounge and bar were inviting , the breakfast was... More

The first room we were shown after a fairly long check in, was tiny! There was no way it could have been described as 'superior' which was what I had paid for. The bed was a very small double. When my husband lay down, his legs were hanging off the edge. Now, he is used to his feet popping out... More

I stayed overnight last time I was in Bristol and thought that room quality was good, if a little small, and very clean and modern-feeling. Pleasantly surprised by interesting design features in the public areas, and genuinely surprised at the good quality bathroom toiletries in the room. What a pleasure to have proper shampoo and conditioner in decently sized tubes.... More

We're very pleased with our choice. The hotel was very nice, in an excellent location near the Harbourside, a lot of pubs, the heart of Bristol city centre, and Cabot Circus (the main shopping centre). We'll certainly return!

Perfect location to visit the main monuments, the old city and to go for some shopping as well. From here you can also easily reach the train station by foot in not more than 10 minutes. The rooms were very nice and clean and the staff very kind and professional. We will come back here!

Very welcoming reception staff. Room was large, clean and comfortable with all the extras you would expect but more! Bed very comfortable. Breakfast was varied and excellent and again very helpful staff, with the added benefit of a view of the water front.
