We stayed two nights. The staff were friendly and helpful so no complaints on that score although they did not understand the local parking regulations (notably immediately outside the hotel which has very little parking itself). The room was distinctly shabby (drawers slid out, shower screen was dirty, broken floor tiles in bathroom, windows would not stay open and badly... More

Dear Hugh T, I am terribly sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your recent stay at the Rodney Hotel. I am encouraged to read that you were pleased with the levels of service offered, despite the lack of parking knowledge. There are unfortunately a lot of different restrictions in the village, but I will of course be ensuring... More

The staff were extremely helpful and made me very welcome. They went out of their way to deal with all my requirements, including a food intolerance. Any problems that arose have been addressed and I have been very impressed with their desire to ensure that their guests are completely satisfied, both before, during and after their stay. The location of... More

This was our second attempt to stay at the Rodney having been 'relocated' last year to their sister hotel the Clifton. So pleased we persevered and booked this short break. We were made to feel welcome from the minute we walked in the door. Knowing the difficulty finding parking in Bristol it was worth the £6.50 per day parking to... More

Stayed 2 nights. Nice staff. Single room was tiny, but both the room and the hotel very clean and well designed & furnished. Food was very good. Only negative was car parking - it's a nightmare! Lots of cafes, bars & restaurants nearby

Stayed here for one night on business. Could not fault the staff - helpful and friendly at all times. Managed to park immediately outside the hotel. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent. The room itself, though, was poor. It was clean and reasonably well equipped. But it was small. On the third floor without any lift. The floor in the... More

Excellently situated in the heart of regency Clifton Village. Parking no problem - what a change! Sadly I was only staying for one night. I had hoped that the weather forecast would lengthen my stay but no luck. I was greeted by two charming receptionists (one a very competent trainee); they were only too pleased to help and answer my... More

Real mixed bag from staying at this hotel - I have stayed 4 times for 2 or more nights now and each time something goes wrong... Firstly the pros - the location is perfect for Clifton and generally you can get parked outside the hotel or close by down one of the free streets. Cleanliness was very good in the... More
