It was mostly an enjoyable visit. The staff were excellent and the hotel was in walking distance to good bars and restaurants. The hotel itself does need some sprucing up; looks very worn in most places. You can hear what's going on in other rooms, so bring ear plugs. A nice hotel, that could be much better with sound proofing... More

A friend and I were in Bristol for a concert and booked the Washington Hotel for an over night stay. It was excellent value. We received a warm welcome from the staff on reception, who also helpfully told us how to get to the venue for the gig. Our room was comfortable and was perfect for our requirements. The breakfast...

I am currently staying in a single room that is like a prison cell - small dark and gloomy. My room is literally on top of reception so is constantly noisy - I can hear conversations word for word so a reasonable nights sleep is out of the question. There is also only a little lamp in the room, no... More

Dear Clarebobo, I'm very sorry to read that you were not happy with the room you stayed in at the Washington over the weekend. Room 15 is one of the rooms that we allocate last due to it's location next to reception - unfortunately, however, we were full for the nights you stayed. That being said, reception remember you and... More

Delicious people to welcome one, excellent service - but with chipped paint and unfresh decor the place needs to brighten up. Breakfast grill? Looked fine, but had little taste. I needed ham and eggs at home to remind me how fried food should be ...

You won't get a better value place to stay in Bristol. With all attractions minutes away and a wide range of restaurants nearby, the Washington is very good. A bit annoying to have to pay extra for WiFi and parking.

I chose the hotel as the cheapest hotel in central Bristol that I could find. I was delighted with the hotel; the staff were friendly but professional, the room was clean and the full English breakfast was very good. The only minor negatives were that the room was too small to have an armchair, the free wifi for booking online... More

A good place to stay if you don't mind a small single room. The breakfast service was really good and the receptionist on the day was lovely. Check-in and check-out time are really convenient. Would probably stay there if I visited Bristol again. :)
