I stayed for 1 night in July 2014 on business. The hotel is lovely and modern with beautiful rooms. The front of the hotel overlooks the river and the back a multi-storey car park so there is no traffic noise to wake you up. There are nice little touches added to the rooms such as locally produced shortbread and when... More

Stayed there over a weekend recently. Hotel is located on Welsh Back right on the water so perfectly located for central Bristol. Numerous pubs and restaurants nearby as well, SS Great Britain etc. in walking distance (allowing for the ferry crossing also). Room was on the 3rd floor and right next to the lift. But we didn't hear the lift... More

The Mecure Bristol Brigstowe is fantastic value when you get the room for £65-70 a night excluding breakfast. Much nicer than a Premiere Inn for not much more. This hotel is right on the side of the Avon river with small boats constantly going up and down stream and providing a very jolly backdrop. The river bank is great to... More

Staying in Bristol over the weekend for the Balloon Fiesta. We'd pre-booked the hotel a few months earlier (to get a better internet rate). Our room was on the sixth floor at the rear, so no river view, however very quiet. The room was well laid out, spacious, had a couple of extra seats, safe and a big, comfortable bed... More
