I have just moved to Bristol for a new job and I stayed for 2 nights at the Arches recently whilst I was moving between flats, and I have to say it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had whilst I've been in Bristol! Francois and Wendy were incredibly nice and friendly people and made me feel very... More

I stayed in the hotel for one night as I had an interview the next day. The host could not have been more welcoming, the room was lovely and the food was very nice. I would definitely stay here again.

Visited my daughter in Bristol University. Francois and Wendy are great. :) Im from NY and not a big traveller - they made me feel so comfortable. I travelled alone and I felt at home. Loved staying with them and love England - such a beautiful country. And have recommended them to family members when visiting. :)

Lovely experience with a lovely warm welcome from the owners. Well placed for transport to town and also Temple Meads station. Comfortable room & en suite. Lovely choice for continental breakfast which is included. There are steps up to the property from the road which may not be ideal with some luggage.

Good continental breakfast with plenty of choice. Overall a nice hotel in great location. One small disadvantage is that the hotel doesn't have its own parking but the owner can provide permits for on... More

I was very impressed by the welcome I received, especially as I arrived in the middle of the day, which the owners accomodated without a murmur. Helpful and comprehensive explanation of the facilities, both in the hotel and locally. The free wifi was a bonus; many large establishments happily charge for the privilege. The location is well placed for accessing... More

A small, warm and cosy hotel in a good location in terms of train station, cricket ground and town centre. Clean, free of noise and comfortable rooms. Owned and run by a friendly couple who really made me feel at home. Would definitely recommend.

The hotel's okay, and the manager friendly enough - but anyone staying there should know that breakfast is continental and served 8am - 9am, even on a Sunday, with checkout time at 10am. We asked if they could at least save a croissant for us, as we probably would not be down for 9am, but were given a firm no.
