One-night stay in Bristol so we didn't want to spend too much on the accommodation. The hotel is conveniently located next to Temple Meads train station and has a paid car park. The rooms were clean and the staff was quite helpful. Breakfast was all right although could be further improved. Other than that, the hotel have no faults really.

You pretty much know what to expect with a Holiday Inn Express - in my experience they are very similar wherever they are. I am a big fan - they have a truly excellent rewards scheme to accumulate points which you can then use for heavily discounted accommodation. I was using some of my points for this particular stay.

Was visiting as part of a mini break with my partner. The hotel is situated directly opposite temple meads train station. Relatively easy to find with the use of sat nav and has reserved car parking to the rear of the hotel, but you have to park in a temp spot and check in before you can park. The hotel... More

Stayed for one night only and the place was perfectly adequate if you just need somewhere to put your head down. Arrived at 10pm and left 12 hours later. HI Express properties vary according to factors such as - is it a new property? Is it a conversion? The franchise operating the hotel can influence the quality level. I would... More

We stayed for one night after a long 2 flight journey from Israel and before continuing to Devon by train. We chose this place due to it great location near Temple Meads station and the excellent price. The room was clean but the bed was uncomfortable, and the cot they gave us for the baby was even worth. Breakfast was... More

Stayed at this hotel whilst attending Bristol University Open Day. The uni runs free buses from the station opposite and this was an ideal location, minutes away. We were able to leave our car in the car park over night and through until our early evening departure. This came as an extra cost but well worth it. The hotel was... More

Great location if arriving by rail (Temple Meads station). Next to a busy main road, we wanted a room at the front of the hotel, overlooking Temple Meads station, which we were given, but if you wanted a quieter room, ask for one at the rear. Breakfast (very good) is included in the room price.

For a quick trip this hotel is ideal. It's clean, serves a hot breakfast as well as continental one at no extra cost. The bed and room were clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The only slight downside was the bed was a bit too soft for us, but that's personal choice.
