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.

Room and bathroom clean and air conditioned , not noisy even though on second floor above busy street (double glazing did its work). Car parking was £12 per day. Good value for a double room - paid around £80 per night. Only gripe was the grey and probably reconstituted muck that masqueraded as scrambled eggs , runny beans and low... More

Breakfast was good, beds comfortable and staff attentive. I didn't find it noisy although by train station. Also very convenient location close to the station and to town centre. I recommend this hotel!

Whilst this could be considered a bland corporate offering, it was good to go somewhere where the presentation and decoration of the rooms was modern and in good condition, there was a working air con unit (no issues here with listed status) and the room was clean and tidy. Food was not quite as good as there was no evening... More

A very clean and tidy hotel, great location and helpful staff. Rooms are modern and cleaned on a daily basis. Secure car park which is cheaper then any other in the area. Opposite the train station and within walking distance to shopping, parks and nightlife, great value hotel for what ever you need.

Busy hotel with combo of couples like us, families in town for harbour festival, plus a couple of stag & hen do's. Lots of people having a good time but impressively quiet! This place great... More
