“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Booked well in advance and paid £45.00 per night for 3 nights between Xmas and New Year.
2 adults and 2 kids (7&9) all in same room, room size was adequate as were facilities.
Room was spotless on arrival and daily maid service kept it that way throughout our stay.
Express breakfast was much better than expected - cereals/muffins/toast/croissants/sausages/srambled egg/beans/yoghurts/fruit/bread rolls/cheese, area was well stocked each morning definitely no complaints.
We were visting family in Bristol and know the area well - hotel is ideally situated for easy access to City centre and many of surrounding places of interest.
Good local amenities.
All in all couldn't fault our stay and would definitely stay there again.

I have stayed here several times whilst on business, rooms are well kept and clean. Breakfast is good, there are a few hot items to choose from. The rooms are basic but you get what you pay for. There is a nice pub next door that serves good food.

Needing a hotel for one night in this area of Bristol, the Holiday Inn Express (North) was perfectly located.

Room was comfortable, clean and rather large to be honest. Breakfast was sufficient with a self-service choice of fruit, cereals, rolls and cooked food.

Ok, it could be classed as expensive, but as I had a meeting only 5 minutes walk away, it saved on sitting in the appalling traffic jams that haunt this area of Bristol. I also asked if it was ok to leave my ar in the car park whilst I went to the meeting and there was no issue whatsoever.

There's a nice pub next door called The Fox Den who serve great food and beer.

Would be happy to stay here again.

We travel using IHG hotels often, so when we had the opportunity to stay at Holiday Inn Express, Bristol, using our Priority Reward Points, we were delighted. The hotel is in a great location, and allowed us to visit Bath, Cheddar Gorge, Weston-Super-Mare and numerous other small villages close by. The hotel is delightful, easy to find, and has a good size car park. The rooms are spacious, well equipped, and we opted to pay additionally for WIFI in our room.
The complimentary breakfast is lovely. Offering cold and hot buffet, and rather nice that I could send my husband down to retrieve breakfast to have in our room.

Paid too much, accomodations sterile and uninviting. Room was cold, not just burrr, but no personal touches at all. Cold breeze blew in from window all night, the place was not easy to find for us, since we were not from the area. Parking lot entrance was hard to find on GPS system. There is a good breakfast, continental style in the morning, but the coffee was from a dispenser, with powdered lattes :( from a machine. The only disappointing night we spent in the UK. Sorry, but it's the truth.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else if possible. At least 20 pounds overpriced a night.

I have been staying in the HIX for three days a week for the last three months,
Rooms are impressively cleaned to a high standard and well furnished for the business traveller (only notable exception is no trouser press!)
Breakfast included is somewhat limited but sufficient
Its convenient location for businesses north of the city is a winner - less so if you intend to use it as a base for visits to central Bristol
Very helpful and accommodating staff - real above and beyond the call of duty attitude is a winner for the business traveller.

Room Tip: Remember to switch off AC before going to bed (control unit by door)

Stayed for 1 night at HI Express North Bristol.

The rooms were clean and the bed's comfortable. Shower comes with soap and body/shampoo gel in dispensers. Towels were clean, and there was a choice between soft/firm pillow. Heater worked well too.

It would have been good if there were disposable bedroom slippers, but as I said, it's frills-free so it wasn't included.

It's convenient that there's a huge Sainsbury just 3 minutes walk away, and a good pub/restaurant just next to the carpark.

Breakfast was alright - nothing to shout about, but it had bread, cereals, fruit, and some hot food. Comprehensive!

Service personnel (only had interaction with front-desk) were brisk, but not rude.

I stayed as part of a tour group and I saw the daily rates on the board. I'm not sure if it's worth a GBP140-150/night stay though.
