“Short break”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for 2 nights using a Buy-a-gift voucher which was for bed and breakfast. Having read the mixed reviews we were not sure what to expect.
The room we were allocated was very dark and depressing and overlooked the fire escape and part of the building, this meant that I would not feel safe leaving the window open. After speaking to reception we were offered another room which was at the front and much brighter with a view of the park.
As previous guests have said the hotel is very "tired" looking and needs decorating but I understand this is happening. The room was very clean and the bed linen and towels were good quality. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows needed to be firmer. There was tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits on the first day but only tea and coffee on the second day, would have thought both days should have been the same?
We found breakfast to be very good, one of the best hotel breakfasts we have ever had. There was the normal continental choices and hot breakfast was freshly cooked to order using quality ingredients and perfectly cooked.
There was free wifi but found it very slow.
All the staff were very friendly and we had no problems with noise etc.
Not sure if I would stay there again, partly due to the fact that the hotel is situated on a busy road and a few miles out of the centre of Bristol and does need modernising.

Room Tip: Front, upstairs.

We stayed at the Arnos Manor for a two night break on the 29th & 30th of April, we were a little worried by some of the reviews that we had read prior to our visit but we needn't have been concerned. The staff were friendly and welcoming and we were upgraded to a room with a spa bath. The room was very clean and spacious. I understand what others have written as the decor in the hotel is a little tired and in need of an update and there was sometimes an odour of drains but this did not detract from our enjoyment of our two night break. The hotel is in a convenient location being a short bus ride from Bristol City centre, breakfast was plentiful with a good choice of both hot and cold food. We would certainly stay here again.

We stayed here on a hen do. The hotel is lovely from the outside and checkin wemt well. The room is dated and in need of modernisation. The handle on the bathroom door was missing with a screw sticking out. ..we told a staff member who's attitude was poor and said he'd contact maintenance...but couldn't promise anything. (It wasn't fixed and someone else made a note of it on check out and gave apologies). We also noticed a few odd dirty patches along edges of room. The beds were ok and soundproofing seemed good. This hotel does give a good breakfast we really couldn't fault it at all. Let down by poor service...

We stayed for two nights. The hotel is in the process of being decorated but our room was very clean and the bed very comfortable.

We dined in the restaurant both nights and the food was excellent and good choices. Nothing was too much trouble for the waiting staff - Jane and Adrian. They made us feel very welcome.

Nina in reception helped us with all our queries for places to visit as this was our first time in Bristol. An amazing city!

Room Tip: floor two, overlooking restaurant

Tayler is very helpful to brides and groom to be showing them around the lovely various events rooms which are of different sizes to cater for all your differing wedding party needs. Highly recommend going for a look around.

This is an old (some say haunted, room 160 if your into that kind of thing.) manor. It's clean and had a comfortable bed. Had a little TV in the room. The wifi was a bit rubbish. Breakfast was nice, the coffee was okay, the staff were lovely.
