DoubleTree by Hilton Bristol South - Cadbury House

Reviewed March 2, 2013

I thought for the price it was on the top side for this hotel. The staff were nice and the room very clean. I would of thought though for the price we would of had a mini bar in the room. The only drinks were tea or coffee and would of been a nice touch to of had cold drinks of some sort without having to use tap water. We did not use the restaurant due to being at a wedding in the hotel so could not comment on that side of things.

I have stayed at this DoubleTree several times. Overall it is a very nice hotel and the staff are generally pretty good. However, be warned that most weekends they have functions on. I realise that functions are very lucrative for hotels, but the Management team at this hotel doesn't seem to show any interest in ensuring regular hotel guests get a peaceful experience.

At the end of every corridor there are doors that bang loudly (twice for some reason!) whenever anyone goes through. So if you get a room near the end of corridor you can expect to be kept awake into the early hours as other guests go to and from their rooms and early in the morning when the first people start going to breakfast. The bedroom doors also don't seem to have much soundproofing either (you can hear every word of conversations in the corridor). I had mentioned the problem with the doors on previous visits, but nothing has been done about it. Despite the fact my Hilton profile clearly states that I prefer rooms away from the elevators they allocated me a room next to the elevators and right next to one of these banging doors!

Very late at night there was a group of people having a loud argument at the front of the hotel. Not sure if they were coming out of the restaurant or the function. I realise the hotel cannot be held responsible for every guest's action, but this happened within feet of both the bar and reception. I would have expected the Duty Manager or other staff to step in deal with such a problem swiftly, yet it was allowed to go on for some time. Our windows were firmly closed and we had earplugs in, so that tells you something about the soundproofing and level of noise.

I did provide feedback on all these issues to reception. They said it would be passed on. As a regular guest with both Hilton group and this specific hotel I thought I might receive a follow-up from the Hotel Manager, just by way of an apology if nothing else. But no. Nothing. I really don't think they are bothered.

We stayed here whilst looking for a house in Bristol. It was very comfortable and as we booked it through Last Minute it was a very reasonable price. We took full advantage of the leisure facilities which were excellent. Both the hotel resturant and the Marco Pierre were fully booked, but we ate at the leisure centre and the food was brilliant and very reasonable, the service was also very good.

The only problem I had was that I got lost, there are 2 lifts and they don't both stop on all the floors, so make sure you take notice how to get to and from your room.

Good, modern rooms at the top end of Doubletree standard (understanding that UK hotel rooms generally seem to be a little on the small side). Breakfast also as one would expect... good 3*/4* buffet (but do not expect fresh orange juice or gourmet sausages!).

Try to avoid rooms near the lifts / fire doors (which are unfortunately the largest rooms), as you can expect to be disturbed by the poorly-adjusted fire doors slamming closed throughout the night.

2nd stay at the hotel on business. I found the hotel clean and the staff friendly without being OTT, warm cookie on checking in a nice touch. I ate in the bar area and the bar food was ok, they do have a thing about serving chips and side dishes in little copper pans which does hide the fact that these portions are small for the price charged. The lighting in the car park area and bedroom is poor especially if you want to do some work. There is a good selection at breakfast but if you want toast then be prepared to wait as 1 of the elements is broke on the rotary toaster and has been since my 1st visit a couple of weeks ago.
