I stayed here for one night over the weekend. Seeing as the previous reviewer slated the place, I sympathise strongly. I actually was in the bar underneath the building at the time and it is good..... .....but I was very worried that my room might be above it. Thankfully it wasn't so my review is more favourable. For anyone booking... More

This Hotel is great if visiting Clifton. Parking can be a little difficult during week days but not at weekends as the permit scheme does not run. The receptionist was extremely pleasant and helpful and the booking in and out process was very quick and efficient. The room was very clean and came with fresh fruit and good tea and... More

I usually like to use Tripadvisor to leave positive reviews of places I have enjoyed, but felt the need to share our very bad experience of this hotel. My partner and I recently stayed for two nights. The room was absolutely tiny, with a very small double bed (we think it was only 4ft wide) and a miniature bathroom. There... More

Situated in the edges of Clifton village, with easy access to all the amenities Bristol has to offer. With good walking distance to the Harbour with its multitude of bars, restaurants and clubs this hotel ideally located. The ambience, rooms, service and staff were impeccable. The meals were all freshly cooked and well presented and we had one of the... More

Small window which I kept open the whole duration of my stay due to the tropical like feel of the air!! It... More

I nearly posted a very negative review straight after checking in but thought I should give a more considered opinion after a nights sleep. My main frustration with the hotel is the utter lack of parking. I know that at the moment they're re-furbishing their car park but there was no indication of this when I booked directly with the...

. Ideal location for a city break though limited parking could be a problem. Superb value for money,though the good breakfast was extra. Staff were all friendly and very helpful.Would recommend it without hesitation.

At £45 for an Executive Single for the night, it would be unfair to expect 5 star rooms and facilities. That being said, my experience was not great and suffered from a great lack of attention to detail, which for me is a basic requirement of any hotel stay, regardless of price or rating. I hardly slept due to both... More
