City hotels often lack ambience but not so in the Bristol Hotel where staff are all very professional and friendly. Parking is easy and the hotel is ideally situated across the canal from bars and restaurants and is a short walk from shops.
On our first stay we suffered noise from over-exuberant guests returning to their rooms in the early hours of the morning. When I mentioned this on the Doyle Survey, I was immediately contacted by the manager. On our second visit he ensured that we had a quiet room and met us on our arrival.
The ambience in the lounge is very pleasant with live music gently playing in the background at diner and during Sunday breakfast. The dining room looks out over the canal.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
