We stayed at Holiday Inn Express, Temple Gate House, Bristol for a weekend in February. The hotel was easy to find. It’s right opposite the railway station. Check-in was quick and we were given Room 507. It was a quiet room overlooking the car park at the back of the hotel. Not a splendid view but we were not bothered. I’d rather have a quiet room than a great view. The front of the hotel faces a busy road so I am not sure how quiet these rooms would have been.
Our room was typical of a Holiday Inn Express. It was clean, moderns with just about enough storage space for your belongings for a weekend. There was a TV, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities in the room. The bathroom was clean and modern with a large walk-in shower. As with Holiday Inn Express, you do not get a selection of toiletries but you do get a choice of soft or firm pillows.
Breakfast had an adequate selection of hot and cold buffet.
The staff were polite and friendly throughout our stay. During both the Saturday and the Sunday I could smell cigarette smoke from a room along our corridor. When I mentioned this to the reception desk on the Sunday morning, the Manager shot up there with her keys to find out who had been smoking. I was really impressed how seriously she took this matter. Not sure of the outcome.
There is a limited number of car parking spaces allocated to the hotel in the car park at the back but, on the weekend we stayed, there was no problem with parking. However, it does cost you £6 per night.
I would certainly recommend this hotel if you wanted to stay in Bristol. It was just
10 – 15 minute walks to the centre of town.
