This hotel is only five minutes walk from Bristol Temple Meads Station and about a 15 minute walk from the City Centre. So it is well placed. It has a slightly antiseptic feel, almost like a modern hospital, in the reception area - lots of marble and gleaming chrome. Reception was efficient, although not overly friendly. Some people were being given cookies on arrival (I am not sure why I was not…)
The hotel does not have a pool, but it does have a gym which, I am afraid to say I neglected to use (perhaps that is why they did not offer me a cookie!) One excellent feature of reception is the free use of two computer terminals that are attached to a printer. There were also complimentary copies of The I newspaper.
The bedroom was lovely. The hotel was completely refurbished two years ago and to a good standard. The bed was super comfortable. The room was well lit, with a good work station. The wardrobe had an iron and ironing board. The room had its own safe. There was a large, flat screen TV with a wide range of Freeview channels. It would have been nice for the room to have an easy chair. There was an odd window seat, which was comfortable, but not for lounging.
The shower room was lovely, with a large rain shower head. The towels and toiletries were both good quality. There was even the luxury of a heated mirror so you could shower and then shave without having to wait till the steam disappeared.
My only real disappointment about this hotel was the breakfast. It has a good range of items in the buffet and the quality of the food was good, also. But the plates are not warm. There were no "lamps" over the dishes and, as a consequence, my breakfast was quite cold by the time I got back to my table. The coffee was also quite weak.
