The rooms were very hot but a fan had been left for us. There was very poor noise insulation ; you could hear everyone turning on a tap, flushing the toilet, walking passed the door (the other guests were talking in hushed tones, but you could hear every word). We had the window open all night, room at back of... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the years, and I'm now wondering why ! It's very handy if you want to eat or drink in Clifton, but there are better hotels at better prices if you're prepared to stay in Bristol and taxi up. We stayed on the night of 18th August for a works get together.... More

The hotel is fine, the staff nice and the food and drink (for the wedding) was grand, it was just the rooms which were flakey to be honest. I know they advertise them selfs as a budget hotel - and thats fine but the double room was so small that it was a squeeze to get into the bed. In... More

A shame really because the staff were lovely. But.... Air conditioning was an open window onto a very busy road opposite a taxi rank. Room was tiny and breakfast disappointing. Car parking complex and additional charge

We booked this hotel as it held the reception of our nephew's wedding. We were allocated room 01 which was down some awkward stairs next to the Gents toilet. The room was spotless and adequate but the large black-tiled windowless bathroom was depressing. On the morning after the reception there was no hot water. On pointing this out we were... More

The Rodney is situated in the heart of the lovely Clifton area so that's a great start. Beautifull building with a nice bar and lovely garden. Friendly and caring staff so that's nice aswell.
