This is a nice and basic, but clean hotel we stayed in for one night. I enjoyed the availability of Twining's Tea in the bedrooms (green and white). The croissants in the morning were nice, and vegan options were available.

Well located away from the bustle of Bristol, it's a small private hotel run by friendly owners Francois and Wendy. We had room 3 which was not en-suite but 2 loos and shower room over the corridor, so no problem. It's quite basic, a typical English hotel well situated in the North of the City in a nice old building.... More

Whenever I return to Bristol, I choose this hotel for my stay. I have to book it weeks before my trip, and I know that in summer they are full. I like the small garden in front of the main door, well – it is not so tiny for a town but I am somewhat used for larger spaces. The... More

I have stayed at the Arches Hotel three or four times now, as it is convenient for visiting family who live in Bristol. The owners are very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is basically continental and good. Rooms are basic, but very clean and comforatble. All in all you get good value for money.

Stayed two nights in September and fully intend to stay again next year. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and nothhing was too much trouble. Continental breakfast was very good and catered also for my friend who is vegan, even bringing soya milk and vegan biscuits to her room. Rooms were dated but very clean and comfortable. Only minor...

All our family came to Bristol from all over Europe for an extremely important celebration recently. Some of the family stayed at the Arches House on Cotham Brow. The owners, Francois & Wendy, were friendly even when we over-slept! It was refreshing not be chased out of our rooms early on a Sunday morning. The rooms were fair & reasonably... More

I was looking for a quiet B+B close to the venue of the British Masters Weightlifting championships 2013 and at a distance of 1 mile this hotel looked an ideal choice. I was greeted very warmly when I arrived on Friday 22nd March after a 190 mile journey. The room I was given was large having a double and single... More

Very friendly and warm welcome. Clean but old fashioned room worth very small ensuite. Great for us as we were going to a party locally so could walk. Very nicely presented continental breakfast that catered for many dietary requirements.

Stayed here very recently. Would highly recommend it. Cosy and warm. Very jovial and friendly, helpful owners. Good free WiFi all over and a great location, being very close to the centre. Very close to loads of shops and restaurants. Parking right outside.
