Was very surprised by how nice this hotel turned out to be. As a 'City' hotel, sometimes they are not always that brilliant. This hotel is lovely. We had a lovely large room, with the most comfortable extra-large bed. Interesting views of the Canal, street-life and surrounding roof-tops and distant hills. Very clean. Bathroom was very clean too. Had fluffy... More

What a fantastic experience at The Bristol Hotel. Really nice room thanks to a complimentary upgrade. Really friendly attentive staff at the front desk. Free parking. Right in the middle of the harbour bars and restaurants. Reasonable room rates. Couldn't ask for much more.

Not a cheap hotel - and so quite frustrating when lots of little details add up to make this a disappointing experience. Leaking shower screen, inept/grumpy staff, noisy rooms (river view = facing a noisy nightclub). Great location but felt slightly ripped off - even more so when breakfast is another £12 each!

I stay at the Bristol 2 or 3 times a month and find it a welcoming and enjoyable experience. The rooms are comfortable and smart, the restaurant overlooks the Bristol waterside which is nearly always buzzing with activity.

I stayed here on business 11th September. The room was beautiful and the restaurant over looked the canal river with all glass walls. It is one of the best hotel restaurants I have been in and food was exceptional including the service. 5 star in everyway

Stay as a treat for my partners birthday, booked online in advance and found the bubbles and berries package which included free bottle of bubbly with berries on arrival, the nights stay and breakfast for cheaper than one nights room rate which was a great start! Very welcoming upon arrival, and got a complimentary room upgrade! Room was lovely, well... More

At check in, the offered me a choice of a quiet room, which I appreciated as I'd travelled from Pittsburgh and had two plane changes. The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from St Mary Redcilffe, which is where the airport bus stops (maybe a 15-20 minute ride from the airport), and is close to @Bristol, where my conference was... More

Very good hotel in a brilliant position, couldn't ask for better. Bristol Centre right on the doorstep. The city has many of festivals, including music and food weekends. Would definitely stay there again.
