What are they thinking with 9x9 "Executive" single rooms (incl en suite)? The owners need to covert this room (29) into a small storage cupboard! Even the staff seemed embarrassed by the standard of room.

Have just returned from a 3 night stay with my partner and I have to say that we had a lovely time. We arrived and we were lucky enough to get a parking spot outside; being the weekend there was no charge. Nice, light bright reception to the left with a coffee bar and comfortable seating to the right. The... More

Lets start with the positives...well positive...the car parking is great. off site and very secure. Unfortunately this was the high spot of my stay. If you have a cat then don't bring it as you won't be able to swing it. The rooms are also very dated and could do with a refurb. The TV didn't work and there was... More

Very simple room (getting used to this when travelling in the UK...), but the room is clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Also the neighborhood is nice, with nice restaurants.

I was flying out of Bristol Airport early in the morning so I just needed a place to crash. The first room they put me in was small, dirty and smelt of damp. I figured I would only be there a few hours so contemplated putting up with it until the damp made me feel ill and affected my asthma.... More

Great location in Clifton, close to Whiteladies Road and Park Street; it's an old building which they're trying to make modern and funky but not quite making it! clean room; comfy bed; some quirky 'extras' such as cafetière and fruit, but one of the worst hairdryers in hotel history! I think it was a bit expensive for a 2* hotel.... More

We've stayed here a number of times over the last 3-4 years and are always very happy. The location is fantastic with Whiteladies Road, Clifton and central Bristol all a hop away.

I stayed 5 nights, I changed rooms when a friend joined me to stay for the last 3 nights. Both rooms were clean and comfortable but a bit shabby.

I have stayed at much nicer hotels in Bristol, so although nothing went wrong with my stay, this hotel was just below my standards and poor for the price.
