I had a lovely stay here as I was attending a wedding just up the road at Bristol Zoo. The room was old style comfortable and really convenient to Clifton Village, with it's great little shops and cafés and the Suspension Bridge. The bathroom was compact, but adequate enough. The check-in was efficient and fast, parking @ £5 a day... More

The hotel location is good. But that is the only good part. There is no lift and stairs ate narrow. The staff are not very helpful. I carried all bags in without any help offered. Double beds are 2 single beds pushed together, not comfortable. All the room decor looks terrible. The bathroom looks so bad, tiny plastic cubicles with... More

Clean hotel, staff very welcoming. Great breakfast . Good position. Had one of the Garden rooms which was nice. Could hear other guests walking around in the room above but not too disruptive. Parking on site is first come first served but quite a few spaces available, Charged at £5 a night.

Although this Hotel is in a great location, fairly quiet and with a nice park across the road, as well as being close to Clifton Village, Clifton Suspension Bridge and within easy access to the City Centre, I was somewhat unimpressed. Our room was small, very small, the bathroom even smaller - The shower, you literally could never swing a... More

Possibly stay number eight at this excellent base for Clifton, Bristol and surrounding area! Spacious rooms available; very beautiful garden with lots of blooming flowers; extremely friendly staff and most wonderful delicious selection for breakfast - highly recommended!!!

Great location, walk to city centre and the bridge-all the add ons though make it expensive £5 parking £8 breakfast -but given the area its going to be around £100 per night-Bristol is great place to visit

I tried to 'phone this hotel several times on the morning of arrival but with no reply. The room was single but without space to literally swing a cat. One cup, no glasses. Minimal tea and coffee. Minimal hanging space. Had I paid the current asking price of £126 there would have been discussions, I paid £86, which was still... More

great breakfast, friendly staff and while the service was slow at times it was perfectly pleasant. The showers were not the best in the en suites. Many fo my friends complained to each other about them. Parking around the back of the hotel was a godsend - many in my group had travelled by car and parking in the centre... More

Nice hotel. Friendly staff and service. Only a gentle stroll to the waterfront. Parking limited but I got in. Room nice and a comfy bed. Only issue was the shower was little more than a drizzle. Could have done with more oomph. That said I would stay here again If down here on business.

Stayed here for 2 nights recently and was pleasantly surprised. We usually stay in the city in one of the modern hotels but on this occasion we needed to be in the Clifton area. Unfortunately we chose the wrong week as it was student Graduation time so almost everything was full. Managed to get into the Victoria Square, which is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Victoria Square Hotel is spread across two gracious Grade II listed buildings situated on a Georgian square in the most sought-after area of Bristol. Join us to experience authentic hospitality in a unique destination. Clifton Village is home to period architecture combining ornate terraces, luscious gardens, and vibrant streets lined with boutique shops and cafés. Whether you like outdoor activities or you lean towards fashion and food trends, Clifton has just the thing for your individual taste. Located near Brunel's iconic Suspension Bridge and Bristol Zoo, just a couple of minutes drive from the centre and with excellent links to Bristol Temple Meads Train Station and Bristol Airport, we are ideal for both business and leisure. We have a first come, first served car park with limited spaces. Parking is charged at £5.00 per day. Since the introduction of parking restrictions to the Clifton area, to park on the local roads you will need a parking permit from the hotel also charged at £5 per day. Free parking is available on Sundays and bank holidays only. Ranging from intimate to spacious and superior, our 41 bedrooms showcase the timeless Victorian elegance of high ceilings and expansive sash windows, most of which enjoy leafy outlooks. We offer home-away-from-home comforts including free Wi-Fi access and tea and coffee making facilities. ... more   less
