We booked into this hotel for the second, and definitely last time, during our son's time at uni in Bristol. It was during the heat wave and our room was unbearably hot; we were equipped with a fan which was so ridiculously undersized that it was only beneficial if you stood directly in front of it within about 10 inches...

The hotel is in a lovely location. We booked several months prior to our stay, for a family wedding celebration. We specified we would like quieter rooms and paid extra for this. Unfortunately, the room was neither quiet or what we were expecting- having looked at the website which says 'luxury' .... The room was rather pokey, stained carpet which... More

I arrived early at 12.45 and asked if I could check in on the off chance the room was free. I was told no. Now this isnt a problem but no effort was made to look at the reservation, call housekeeping or making any effort to accommodate me. Felt let down by this lack of care. Overall great location and...

This is a good budget choice for those who want to be near the centre of Bristol. The single rooms come in shoebox size - they are basic and decent, yet far less swanky than the restaurant and bar decor would lead one to believe. Breakfast is good, service was somewhat slow but friendly.

Set in the beautiful, leafy Berkeley Square our expectations were high as we entered. Sadly the reception area was very small and people were checking out as we were trying to check in - not enough room for us all with the respective baggage. The room was well equipped but very small and although we shouldnt expect it - no... More

Fabulous gem of an hotel, tucked away on a quiet square that you can't believe is so near the centre of Bristol. Excellent, attentive and friendly staff made me, as a solo traveller on business, feel safe and very comfortable. The garden and downstairs have a bohemian feel which extends the friendly feel. I was able to park my car... More

We did not stay at this hotel but visited for the restaurant, based on very good word of mouth recommendation. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. The service is very good and the staff are helpful and friendly. The loos are rather tatty, however, and could do with some redecoration.

My son lives in Bristol so we stay often usually at the Grand Thistle Hotel. Unfortunately this hotel was full so I opted for the secret hotel on Last Minute.com. We arrived and were checked in quickly to a basement room which was small but cosy. It had been a terrible day weather wise and there was no heating on... More

Brilliant little hotel hidden in an oasis of calm in the middle of Bristol. Part covered terrace at the rear of the basement bar ideal for smokers. Cracking restaurant. Chic ambience.
