“Is this Hotel too popular?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

If you like a Hotel that you can feel at home in, this one ticks the box. There is Fine Dining, small Pub atmosphere with small screen and good service to rooms. If beige is your colour, the rooms are nice uncomplicated in decor - and not too compact. TV in room is also computer MAC - so you can Skype or facebook if you wish! Here is the not so good points: Parking is ten pounds a night and incredibly tight to park. Location is business area, so little in the way of immediate night life. Very very busy during the two nights I stayed and service at main desk is a little slow.. The rooms are quiet so you can relax. If you eat in the "Fine Dining Restaurant" you could be hungry afterwards (I suggest the bar and add more to the menu it is the same kitchen). I would definitely recommend this Hotel.

Room Tip: Book early as this hotel tends to attract coach parties.

Booked this hotel as I had an interview in Bristol, Got a deal for about £60 which included breakfast for two.The rooms are brilliant for young people, couples, and those on bussiness.
Each room has an apple mac PC with free internet to use, this doubles up as the TV and Music player. There is a large desk if you need to work, the room had a great amount of natural light and the bathroom had a large shower with toiletries and plently of towels.

Wernt expecting that much from breakfast but we arrive to the largest selection I've ever seen, all types of cereal, toast, fruit, cheese. There was also a menu of cooked food to order. I had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs which were delicious, as I was in a rush I asked if there was any chance this could be made asap and the staff were all very friendly and ensured I was not late for my interview.

Excellent, good location too only a 5-10 min walk into Bristol. Definately recommend!

This hotel is great if you want to be in the heart of Bristol. My husband and I stayed here and we were able to walk to all the places we wanted to go - nothing seemed far away. The room was lovely and althought the view wasn't great, we didn't expect anything else being in a city!! The room had a computer and wifi which was useful.
The bar was quite expensive and so we went out rather than staying at the hotel for a drink. The food was good, but again, wasn't cheap!
The breakfast was great - a massive choice and plenty to eat. The waiter/waitresses were all very helpful and polite which was lovely.
In fact, we found all the stff to be helpful.
We couldn't fault the hotel and will staying there again!!!

Rooms were clean and spacious. Nicely decorated. Location was excellent. Just 5 min walk to Cabot circus shopping centre and next to pretty gardens. Harbour is about 10 min walk away. Breakfast was ok, plenty of choice bar staff were really chatty and friendly. Restaurant food was excellent. Would recommend.

We only stayed for one night recently but I was very impressed with the room overall. It was clean and the bed was comfortable.
The furniture was modern as was the Apple TV. The bathroom was very nice, albiet a little small but perfectly functional.

The bar and food prices were a little steep, but you would expect this in any city centre hotel.

All the staff were extremely pleasant.

Short walk to both the train station & town centre so we picked it mainly on location.
Room a little small but was pretty well kitted out (though the iMac didn't always want to switch itself off !) and decor was neat.
Friendly enough staff, did not try the restuarant but did try the bar and it was surprisingly busy & relaxed, our room was just above the bar but must be pretty well sound-proofed.
So overall pretty well recommended !

We stayed at the Mint Hotel on 15th and 16th September- the Hotel overall is very modern and clean but lacking in the 'final touches'.
We had a room for two but only one bathrobe was supplied also one tiny little bottle of shampoo was left in the bathroom for both of us!!!.
The tissue box was only topped up with a dozen or so new tissues (what's wrong with replacing with new).
The bottle inside the shower ( which i assumed was shampoo) was actually handwash.
And the real sting in the tail came when we were checking out - the hotel gives the impression that parking comes with the Hotel rate - but the cheerful man on the check out desk asked me if I had a car in the car park and when I told him I did he asked for ten pounds!!!
Mint still has a few things to learn about attention to detail.
