“Good Central Bristol location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I used the auto check in machine so very fast staff member asked if everything was OK and gave me directions to local M&S food. Beefeater Restaurant next door but didn't sample the food there.

It is a very tall building (17 floors), there are 3 lifts and I was on the second floor however I have heard people say to ask for higher floor as the view is quite spectacular. Couldn't get the heating right and so was a bit cold. A good nights sleep and room quiet despite being in the centre of Bristol. I think it's time for free WiFi for guests now too although I have my own Mi Fi.

Close to Cabot Circus for Shopping, It took me 20 minutes to walk from Bristol Temple Meads railway station but I am a slow walker.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to sample the view

Overall a good experience. Not many places would have accommodated a family of five in one room. Excellent standards of cleanliness and good value for money.

Car parking, as mentioned elsewhere, is a pain. A better discount for NCP would go some way to compensate for the inconvenience.

Thank your for your feedback on your stay with us here at the Bristol Haymarket.

I have tried to get more discount from the NCP but with no luck. It will be something I bring up at our next hoteliers meeting.
There is a secure car park at Cabot Circus who charge around £9 for 24 hours. It is a 10 minute walk away from the Premier Inn but if you don't mind the walk, please drop off your luggage first which will save you having to carry it back. Then you can park the car and have a nice walk through the Cabot Circus shopping area back to the Premier Inn.

Thank you again.
Dawn and team.

The location of this hotel is excellent, beside central bus station,Great coming and going to the Airport , Cabot Circus shopping centre and Beefeater restaurant.
The rooms are very clean and very comfy beds and good shower.
Tea and coffee making facilitys are provided in room.
All the staff are friendly and helpfull
Only complaint we have is you cannot get a nice cup of tea with your breakfast as the water is from flasks that are provided in self service breakfast area. It would be much better if staff provided pots of tea made from boiling water directly from kitchen

Room Tip: Dont book the breakfast as you can get a freshly cooked breakfast across the road in Cafe Mocha for...

I glad to read the location was good for your needs.

I am sorry about the quality of tea on your breakfast. I have spoken with the General Manager of the Beefeater about your comments on this. They are awaiting a new boiler to be installed which will give a constant supply of boiling water and freshly brewed costa coffee.

Thank you again.

Good location as next to the coach station and close to the shopping area. Clean and tidy as usual. Sound proof is also good. Nice view from higher floor.
However the white thin curtain is placed between the two glasses windows ( to minimize the sunlight directly to the room) and it could not be move as the windows could not be opened which block the beautiful city view. Suggested the outer window cannot open (for safety) while the inner window can open to move the white thin curtain so as to enjoy the city view while in room.
Parking space is limited and chargable if you drive car.
Breakfast is good (Full English Breakfast) and dinner for steak are also great.
Overall, will come back to stay .

Hi A L,

It's nice to see you will be coming back to stay with us at the Bristol Haymarket.

When you come again, if you stay on a high floor please ask for your net curtain to be open. The inner windows can be open and we can get a team member to remove the net curtain for a better view.

Thank you again.

Just returned from a weekend in Bristol where my sister is at Uni, my friend and I booked into the Premier Inn to have a bit more room than staying in the student digs! We had a lovely time, all the staff very friendly, polite and helpful, the room was comfortable and spotless and quiet considering the central location, we went everywhere in the 3 days we were there, with my sister as our tour guide and the Premier Inn was a great base not too far from anything. Would defiantly recommend if staying in Bristol.

I can see buy your great feedback you had a brilliant time in Bristol. It is a great city to visit for site seeing and with the bus station being behind it good to get buses to the surrounding areas.

Students do miss there family when away from home so I'm sure it was good for your sister to get a visit from you.

Look forward to seeing you again.

If you are visiting Bristol and want to be in the centre and near Colston Hall for a concert (which was why we were visiting) then you cannot do better than stay here - £39 for a very nice room with everything you need for a pleasant and comfortable stay. The room was clean and the staff friendly. There is no parking at the hotel but there are two or three car parks within about 2-3 minutes walk. At the moment they are putting in new lifts (two completed and one in the process of being worked on). You can just about hear the noise from the 15th floor where we were but as the work does not start until 0900 it is not a problem. Also you cannot open the windows, which we like to do at night, although this was not a problem either as the air conditioning was very efficient. We would certainly be happy to return here again.

Room Tip: If you don't like getting into a lift then this is not the hotel for you - it is a tower and has...

Thank you for your comments on your stay with us.

I hope you enjoyed your concert at the Colston Hall?

We are very fortunate being so near the Colston for music and the Hippodrome for shows and all within a 5 minute walk from us.

Look forward to seeing you again.

We went for a weekend break to Bristol and when I heard my Wife had booked a Premier Inn right in the city centre I was not impressed. We were taking our two primary school age sons and I was worried we'd share the hotel with Stag and Hen night parties. Nothing against the Stags and Hens, I've been on enough stag do's in my time, but not keen to share accommodation with them when I've got the family with me.

I needn't have worried. When we arrived the very friendly and pleasant staff assured us that "they are all up on the 17th floor" as we were given our key for a room on the first floor. The room was perfectly clean and comfortable and really good value for the rate we had paid.

Parking was no problem at all, I don't know what that previous reviewer was on about. We passed the ncp Rupert st car park and turned into the Premier Inn's car park which displayed "spaces" even at 9.30pm on a Friday night (late due to good old M5). Parking was a bit tight but fine and it cost £16 from Fri night to midday Sunday. Not bad at all for a city centre for the whole weekend.

We had bought the "all you can eat" breakfast vouchers and breakfast was served in the Beefeater Restaurant next door but connected by an internal door to the Premier Inn reception. The breakfast was great, the restaurant was pleasant and the staff were amazing considering they had to have the patience of saints given the large numbers of surly hungover groups they have to cope with. Both mornings the waiting staff were cheerful, friendly and efficient. We were even asked if we wanted eggs cooked especially (we asked for poached eggs which were really good).

The hotel is in an excellent location in Bristol City Centre, a short walk to the shops and harbour side. The kids loved "@ Bristol" the science museum. Bristol is a great city, we loved it. I think the stags and hens did too!
