Stayed here for a sat and sun night recently with my wife as we were celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary. Booked the mint on tripadvisor reviews and price as was only using as a base to help us to explore Bath with a half day exploring Bristol penciled in also.
The location was good for temple meads station which we used to get to Bath and airport bus but a bit of a walk into town. We had previously stayed at the london city inn and liked the contemporary rooms and decent value but this place was way insuperior and i have also been in the bar of the glasgow city inn and again this place didnt seem to match up. I asked for a nice room in advance and we were given only 1 floor up looking out onto the heads of the smokers from the bar so was noisy and was woken at 4am on the sun morning by a stag doo returning. It felt no more than a fresher premier inn to be honest, the noisy fire doors in the corridors also kept us awake. Went for a drink in the hotel du vin on one of the nights and wished we maybe should have opted for there but i know it was a bit more cash but prob worth it. We only got 1 towel changed over even though we left 2 in the shower which was annoying. My wife thought she had ruined her dress from the iron as it kept leaking, i almost burned a shirt as the base had someone elses melted top on it......replace the £3 plastic irons with decent ones!
I liked Bristol & really liked Bath which was a shame as the accomodation didnt match up. If we ever return to this neck of the woods again i think wel opt for a Bath guesthouse
