The annoying part was our room card didn't work 3 times until maid came to check with master key and kicked our door until the card worked and the... More

We stayed as a family with two rooms for two nights. Despite the initial issue with trying to charge us for the room we already paid for and a cot missing our stay was really good. Location is good with restaurants, aquarium, planetarium all within walking distance. Rooms were large, hotel staff were friendly and polite. Breakfast was very good... More

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights at the end of August. The hotel is perfectly situated near the centre of Bristol within walking distance of bars, shops and restaurants. Our room on the 5th floor was roomy, comfortable and quiet. We didn't eat in the hotel but the bar and restaurant looked very nice. Staff were... More

Just returned from a one night stay in Bristol and we chose The Bristol Hotel due to its location and position on Trip Advisor. As with a previous reviewer we opted for a deluxe room and I too was surprised by its size - I can't see how a cheaper room could be much smaller. We had issues with housekeeping... More

Stayed for one night over Bank Holiday weekend. Hotel is located on the waterfront and the main benefit is the free parking at the adjacent NCP. Reception staff very friendly and helpful both at check-in and check-out. Paid for a superior room which was clean and functional but quite small. Our room over looked the waterfront which is quite a... More
