Whenever we visit our son in Bristol, it's a joy to stay at The Bristol Hotel. From the telephone call to check availability, through check-in and during our stay, to finally (sadly) checkingout, we have never been met with anything but a very high standard of professionalism by friendly, helpful staff. Special thanks must always go to the front desk staff, who are polite and informative to all their guests, yes, even the awkward ones!
Breakfast is buffet style in the restaurant, overlooking the water..There is always a good selection of fruit juices, fresh fruit, cereal, cheeses, rolls, croissants, toast and pastries, not forgetting the cooked English breakfast section with a choice of eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms etc. etc. Tea, freshly brewed coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate etc. are also offered.
The hotel has a great location, overlooking the water and is ideally situated for sightseeing, shopping, the theatre, or visiting art galleries etc. Temple Meads station is nearby and there are bus stops right outside the hotel. A bonus too, is the adjacent car park (no hunting around for parking and a long walk back to the hotel with bags!)
The rooms are clean and well maintained, with flat-screen TV, one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, tea and coffee making facilities, a really good, hand-held hairdryer (not one of those annoying ones that are fixed and difficult to use), iron and ironing board. Our room also had a Nespresso machine (delicious coffee!) and the use of robes and slippers. Oh yes, and a very good, strong shower, over the bath.
After a good many visits (and looking forward already to the next one), the manager should be proud of his hotel and especially his staff, who always make us feel so very welcome.
Thank you, once again, for a relaxing and enjoyable stay last night, can't wait for our next visit!
