Basically very clean but, check the TV remote has been cleaned.
Our bed was very hard, what they used to call orthopaedic. This may well suit some people that like to sleep on the floor, however if you prefer a softer option a mattress topper may be a consideration.
Staff are lovely.
The hotel is being refreshed and some rooms smell of new paint and the area outside the breakfast area is full of busy workmen.
Hotel is on a noisy roundabout, but this is not a problem as you can keep the windows closed and use the aircon
Breakfast is filling and options include a range of items, but it's a good value for money option, so don't expect too much choice.
There is a pub next to the hotel and McDonalds just down the road and a big supermarket opposite, so you will never be short of options of food and drink.

Room Tip: Basically very clean but, check the TV remote has been cleaned. Our bed was very hard, what they use...

Thank you for your comments on your recent stay, I will pass your positive comments onto the staff. We are currently having a refurbishment in the hotel, I am sorry that the smell of paint was present in your room, we are working hard to try to keep disruption to a minimum for our guests. There are some developments happening next to the hotel which are separate to our refurbishments. The builders are continuing to liaise with us and we are making sure that this does not disrupt our guests experience in the bedrooms but unfortunately they are visible from the breakfast area. I am glad that you enjoyed the food at breakfast. We look forward to welcoming you to the hotel again in the future,
Kind Regards
Erica

we decided to stay in bristol as we'd never been before,we knew this particular hotel was on the outskirts (about 5 miles out) but that was not a problem as we knew the parkway train station was close by,we spoke to the young receptionist who was really helpful ,and she told us that in fact there was a closer station about a ten minute walk called abbeywood station ,the train journey only took 9 mins and very frequent £3.50 return,the second day we took the bus which stopped almost outside the hotel. that journey was about half an hour .The pub next door to the hotel was nice but the food was very expensive up the road past mcdonalds ,was a nice pub just re-opened ,called the king george the landlord was telling us that from this week they will be starting doing mealsl about half what the fox dene charge all in all a really enjoyable stay and would certainly stay again

I was looking for a cheap hotel near to Bristol for my brothers and I for a stag party, and found a great deal on this hotel. OK so it's not in central Bristol, and for £47 per room I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised.

The rooms are clean, spacious, and well equipped, and the beds were comfortable. The staff were also great, and fell over themselves to help. Also, noise didn't seem to travel between the rooms, which is good - I'm fed up of staying in hotels with paper thin walls and huge noisy TVs, but this definitely wasn't one of those!

Breakfast was a little disappointing - full English consisted of overdone sausages, scrambled eggs and beans, and the coffee was the worst I have tasted for a very long time, but for the money I really can't complain.

So in all a great value budget hotel. I'd definitely stay again if we're in the vicinity.

Room Tip: All pretty good, from what I saw.

Stayed overnight on a Sunday. Very clean, spacious room and en suite. Nice cool air conditioning which is a must given recent hot nights. Comfortable bed - and unbelievably, breakfast included in the very reasonable price. The entrance was a bit difficult to find when the sat nav led us astray but that's the only downside I can think of. Overall, a hotel that provides good value for money.

We stayed here for one night last week as a stopover on the way to our holiday in Devon. We had never stayed in a Holiday Inn before but we definitely will in the future.
The hotel was very clean and modern. The room was very comfortable and spacious, the air con was amazing. You get free wifi throughout the hotel and breakfast is included in the price, with a varied selection of hot and cold food to choose from, the warm muffins are good! there is free parking too.
Although we didn't eat at the adjoining pub it did look nice from the outside.

Lovely friendly staff, spacious clean room & bathroom. Huge selection for the free buffet breakfast & all for a good price. Used it simply as a stop off halfway to our final destination so can't really comment about location
