Stayed for one night with friends. Fabulous location and really nice hotel. Hotel drinks very expensive. I am not a skin flint by any means but find £40 for an average bottle of prosecco a bit over the top. Rooms very nice and décor excellent throughout the hotel. Staff very friendly. Extra bonus is the car parking in the NCP... More

This hotel had been booked for a wedding party to stay in while attending a local wedding. It was excellent in every regard and the car park being integral to the hotel was a bonus. I was very satisfied with the hotel and the price.

The Bristol Hotel is well placed to visit Bristol and enjoy the waterfront. With beautiful decor and excellent service this really is a lovely place to stay. They offer free parking in the adjacent NCP car park which is a bonus, as you can park your car and leave it for the afternoon or overnight at no additional charge. The... More

The Bristol Hotel is well placed adjacent to Bristols Harbour. Free adjacent car parking allows for you to arrive early and leave your car safely overnight. This is a big bonus in Bristol! The hotel is beautifully decorated and in a superb location for visiting Bristol. The rooms are clean and comfortable, although I found the mattress a bit soft... More

We have stayed at The Bristol before and knew it was in a fantastic location. We asked for a quiet room as last time our room overlooked the harbour and was a little noisy. This time our superior room on the 5th floor overlooked the courtyard and was excellent, so peaceful and quiet it was hard to believe we were... More

Stayed 1 night for an anniversary. Had a deluxe room over looking harbour which was spacious, clean and decorated perfectly. Room service breakfast was of good quality, lots and fresh. The car park beside is perfect and free! Will be returning again

We stayed for one night for a friends birthday. I could not recommend this hotel enough. The staff are fantastic, nothing too much trouble, the rooms are spotlessly clean and well furnished. Central for the pubs and restaurants and shopping! Would definitely stay here again without a second thought for looking for anywhere else.

We had a very comfortable two night stay in room 529 overlooking the river. Although we were opposite the very noisy bar and cafe area, the triple glazing was very effective and cut out most of the noise. The hotel is in a great location with all the attractions of the river and harbour side on the doorstep. We originally... More

We visit Bristol often and have stayed in most hotels. We stayed here under previous ownership when it was Jury's, but The Doyle Collection have much improved its facilities, ambiance and comfort. Excellent all round.

Located right on the quayside so ideal for attractions, restaurants, and not far from the shops. View from room was across the quayside which was great. Staff were throughout a really good balance of professional and courteous whilst also being friendly and engaging. Room was spotlessly clean and well equipped, but not terribly well planned. The power point you'd logically... More
