Basic Hotel, view of car park which can be noisy in morning. You get what you pay for. Okay for overnight or two day trip. Next time would book Holiday Inn, not Holiday Inn Express. Shopping great though.

Great location right in the centre of Bristol, opposite the train station. Not a very inviting building, but soon brightened up once your were through the front door. Unfortunately parking was extra, either gated at £12 overnight or open at £4 overnight. Rooms are clean and pleasant but the bed was too soft. No food served at night apart from... More

Ok place. Clean and fairly comfortable basic room. Proper shower gel and soap in dispensers rather than the silly little tubes designed for tiny people. Good location close to the train station. Only pizza for food at night but this is a HI Express so fair enough. Restaurants nearby.

So lovely to get off the train at Bristol Temple Meads and see the hotel right in front of you. Fast and friendly check in. Clean and comfortable room. The continental breakfast was a bonus as it included sausage, beans and scrambled eggs, much to my husbands delight. Easy to pick up busses outside the station to get around the... More

This Holiday Inn express was brilliant, right in the middle of Bristol and not much noise from the road, right across from the railway station as well which helped. The staff were all lovely and breakfast is included in your nightly stay, what more can I say! I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is about 5 minutes walk from Temple Meads station and is therefore handy for the station, although not so much so for the City Centre or the docks area. It appears to be converted from an office block and is on a busy road, although the sound proofing seemed reasonable. The rooms were fitted out in the usual... More

Wanted to stay near the Railway Station because once in Bristol we intended to ditch the car & use the station to visit Bath. Great location for this & the harbourside/City Centre is also only a 10 to 15 min walk away. The staff very efficient & friendly. Tea & Coffee making facilities in the room & no problem getting...

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.
