We only had a brief stay in Bristol and were looking for somewhere central that was reasonably priced - the Bristol Hotel fitted the bill. What was quite unexpected was how well appointed it was and much more superior than our expectations!
It's a large, modern hotel but has been decorated & furnished with more than a nod to the current trend of the more exclusive 'boutique' hotels. The reception, bar and public areas area elegantly appointed and the room itself was lovely - lots of pillows, fluffy white towels and a Nespresso machine! We opted for a room overlooking the lock which we were advised could be noisy on a Saturday night but there was no noticeable disturbance in the room. The bed was very comfortable, the room had plenty of storage space for clothes/luggage etc. and everything was spotlessly clean.
I would certainly recommend this hotel for a short break but it is comfortable enough for a longer stay. And I also recommend Bristol for a longer stay! It is a great city and worth visiting.
