We stayed in The Mecure Bristol Brigstow Hotel for one night after booking it though LastMinute.com as one of their "Top Secret" Hotels. We paid £60 for one night which we thought was reasonable.
We got to the hotel after a two hour drive, and due to road closures and one way systems, it through our satnav off completely and we couldn't find the NCP carpark for love nor money. We ended up phoning the hotel to ask for directions but was told that nobody drove so they couldn't help us. Cue a 1/2 hour drive trying to find the carpark.
We got to the hotel and checked in to be advised that if we wanted breakfast in the morning, we could either pay £10 now each, or pay £16 each in the morning. Breakfast was good but not worth the £32 we would have paid on the Sunday had we not preordered it.
We then ended up paying £15 (after the 20% discount) for the parking. So in actual fact, our, good value £60 hotel room cost £95. Not good value really.
The room was ok, it was clean but had a bit of a musty smell - my husband said it smelt like someone was trying to cover up cigarettes?
The TV in the Bath didn't work when we arrived, so the maintenance man came out really quickly, and fixed it - the response time was excellent.
The pillows were like bullets and the room bordering on chilly, but it was quiet, we didn't hear anything throughout the night.
The hotel was average, I think we could have probably found a nicer hotel for almost £100 but you live and learn. Would I go back? Yes, as long as the "extras" were taken off.
