Before the pandemic, I stayed in Bristol regularly for work and have tried a few hotels and Airbnbs around this area. Victoria Square Hotel was the first place I have stayed since the lockdown, and I'm annoyed I didn't find it sooner. It's much smarter and nicer inside than some of the very shabby local competition. The staff were all really helpful and friendly. I didn't try the breakfast, as they are only doing pre-bookings because of COVID. There is hand-gel at every entrance and staff seemed to be following sensible COVID precautions. I don't know if it is just that the prices have been pushed down by the pandemic, but this hotel is by far the best value that I have found in the area, and I will definitely be back.
Stayed for 2 nights in a superior double room . It was a large and bright room with ensuite shower.This is a 2 star hotel and i must admit the room was very nice, basic amenities, so no frills. Was a bit concerned spied a cotton wool bud sitting under the dressing table but prob the cleaner couldnt see it from a certain angle, and the hairdryer provided was very dirty with hairs on it and a yellow sticky substance on it so shut the drawer and didnt use it !!!The breakfast had to be prebooked the night before and was pretty good.It wasnt very hot but invariably never are after it has been served up on a cold plate. The service was very good by the young lady on both mornings , tea was hot and strong and coffee was good too.The location is great for all the Clifton shops and restaurants the suspension bridge is just a short stroll away. We would stay agsin when we visit our son who lives in Clifton. It offers good value for its location.…
Covid restrictions meant pre ordering breakfast and giving a specific time. Breakfast was ok - but sausages both vege and meat underwhelming - (and there’s no excuse for a poor sausage! )and not generous but perhaps out of COVID things are more generous. Hotel itself is lovely and location is gorgeous. Staff sweet and it’s dog friendly but the dog room in the basement is really small compared to other rooms. Main issue with this hotel is total inaccessibility for anyone with buggies or mobility issues. Total inaccessibility. They said “it’s a listed building” - but in 2020 and on two levels - that is unacceptable. A ramp at least would make it possible.
I stay in Bristol regularly but this was my first stay at this hotel . It is in a fabulous location and the regular bus outside takes you down to the centre . The receptionist was very helpful in letting me leave a small bag prior to check in . The room was very spacious and immaculately clean . Unfortunately, I had forgot to book for breakfast the night before which was a shame as it looked very good . They could not accommodate me due to social distancing but there are plenty of cafes nearby . The car park is a real asset for the area . My room rate was very good and I look forward to returning soon .
The room and the bathroom in particular were tired and not very well maintained with some broken fittings. They were clean however. There was a strange smell that pervaded the hall outside and the room itself including the bathroom. Possibly it was furniture polish but it was quite overpowering. Breakfast was good and the staff were courteous.
