Just back from a visit to my old Uni town, Bristol. Though the staff at the hotel were very charming, friendly and helpful the room we were given was right at the top, ventilated only by a small window and very hot and cramped. The shower in the bathroom was a two person job (one to hold while the other... More

Was here for couple of nights while attending a conference in Clifton, so the location was perfect. The staff could not have been nicer - friendly and helpful. My single room was very small, but bright, clean and comfortable. The only drawback was that the continental breakfast was too pricey for the quality offered.

My single room was booked for me for one night by Bristol University. I found the hotel staff friendly and helpful, and they pointed out a very good local restaurant, the Cow Shed, which has excellent fare. The hotel's own dining room serves only breakfast in the morning, and I just had cereal and fruit so I can't comment on... More

I had a couple of nights here and enjoyed my short stay. Room was clean, tidy, and comfortable. Wifi worked well. Staff were friendly from the front desk, to the kitchen staff who chatted to me while I had breakfast. There is a very good pub opposite that has good food. The Hotel is a short 3 minute drive to...

When you enter this hotel it does feel really grand and you can tell that the owners are trying very hard. However once you climb the stairs they have cut a few corners. The rooms are really small and they have just crammed too much in. To turn around in some of the bathrooms you need to come out and... More

Booked this hotel quite late but got a very good value deal. The hotel is quite small but the reception staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to some of the tourist attractions in Bristol including Bristol Zoo and Clifton Suspension Bridge. There is free off street parking close by but be warned if you park on... More

I booked this hotel at the last minute as it was pretty centrally located. On the plus side the receptionist was friendly and very helpful, the room I had was very small but clean and comfortable (if a little basic) and it was easy to find (this was before I moved to Bristol so that was important). Having said that,... More

The hotel is well placed with cafes and bars etc a short walk away. The room was clean as were the communal areas (that I used). The room was described as 'superior' but was a bit on the small side and although tea & coffee making facilities were provided I felt that there could have also been mineral water. I... More
