We stayed for 9 nights at The Clifton Hotel. The staff were extremely friendly. The beds were comfortable and the coffee/tea facilities were refreshed every day with 3 pieces of fruit every day. However, some inconveniences. Both room and especially corridor were extremely hot. A ventilator was provided and we used it, which helped somewhat. The bathroom was OK, but... More

Stayed here for a week whilst with the Devon Golf team. Our room was lovely and the housekeeping staff very pleasant when we bumped into them. It must have been a nightmare trying to sort out out team for dinner every night as we had to pre order every day for that evening. quite a few times they got it... More

The room has all the necessary elements one needs for a short stay. Personally, a mini-fridge would come handy, but is really not a necessity. Furniture is starting to show signs of (miss)use, but nothing relevant. Good restaurant, and good breakfast service.

Last week I stayed in the hotel for a couple of nights. I absolutely loved the breakfast, I must say that I am a big breakfast lover so it was a good plus. The rooms where fine and spacious. The receptionist was really good, and friendly with a big welcoming smile. In summary good place, great location good price.

A reasonable budget hotel close to centre of Bristol. Staff helpful and bar (in basement) good. Probably best for younger people (am not 100 despite sounding like it!??!?!) No air conditioning and opening windows was noisy

Compared to other places we stayed this one was more expensive for just a "nothing special" hotel. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and room was fine. I can't remember our room number but the shower leaked/dripped and we could not get it to stop so one of us didn't sleep well at all (but we also didn't... More

We stayed for 3 nights in August. the room was badly in need of decoration. The window was in such a bad state that i thought the glass may fall out. A previous TV bracket point had not been filled or decorated over. The curtains were threadbare and had holes in the linings. There was an astronomic charge for the... More

Plus points:friendly helpful at reception. Hotel has a relaxed vibe with a nice coffee bar and bar downstairs (Racks) with good atmosphere inside and nice terrace for sitting outside. Good location as it is walking distance into Clifton and Clifton village (suspension bridge) and walkable to cathedral/harbour as well as long as you don't mind a good walk. Minus points... More

We booked this hotel after a friends wedding and were impressed with the good service from the staff, having a very spacious and quiet room and the good location.
