I'm relocating to Bristol with work and have stayed here a lot since January while I find somewhere permanent. The location is great, the views stunning, the village has great restaurants and shops - in short everything you need. But, but but... The hotel itself is the epitome of faded glory; the price of rooms is punitive for what one gets. Last night £95 (approx 145 euros, 185 USD) bought me an afterthought of a twin room at basement level. The TV signal was Soviet-quality, there was only one power point (the management may not be aware that the average 21st century business traveller has a laptop, mobile phone and MP3 player that all need plugging in). The breakfast selection is very poor and the waiter wanted to charge me for an espresso rather than the "free" opaque filter coffee. I don't approve of this penny-pinching, considering my company is leaving the best part of £2k with the Avon Gorge putting me up there. They also tried to charge me for a Sunday Guardian [sic!] and then argued with me when I informed the lady that a) the Guardian isn't published on a Sunday, and b) even if it was I didn't order it! From now on, I will insist that our travel service books me in to the more consistent, higher quality and believe it or not, cheaper, Marriott in central Bristol.
