Reviewed March 3, 2013

I picked this hotel without realising where it was - but the hotel location was amazing - so central and easy walking distance of the city. It was really lovely inside - very new, very clean and well equipped. We thought it would be noisy as groups of people were checking in, but the sound proofing was perefect. The breakfast was good and hot. I would certainly recommend this to anybody, and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The garden rooms have a view over the Temple Gardens and are very quiet.

I stayed here with two other colleagues on the Wine & Dine package available on Hotels.com for only £80. We were actually eating elsewhere that evening but asked if we could just have our wine in the bar before we went out. To our amazement we were offered one full bottle of wine/prosecco with each room. We could not believe how good this offer was for the already discounted rate we had for the room! We were also given a selection of starters and nibbles in with the price.

Hotel was being rennovated whilst we were there so smelled a little of paint, but can't grumble at all due to the price we paid!

The hotel had excellent facilities, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The imac in the room was amazing. The room was very peaceful and very comfortable and there was no noise pollution from the busy road outside. It was in an excellent location.

We stayed at the Garden Inn for 2 nights in early March. It is well located for central Bristol, close to the waterfront and in easy walking distance of everything in the centre. Staff are pleasant and welcoming and the bedroom on the top floor was spotless. While overlooking the dull dual carriageway it was quiet and no noise carried. It had 8 hangers in the wardrobe - an area so many hotels pay little attention to, an imac, and free wifi without any connectivity details required. All of this made a very good first impression The toilet was a bit small, but hardly a complaint.

What let the hotel down in our view was breakfast and parking. Let's start with the latter. when we arrived on Friday we nabbed the last place outside the hotel in the electronic barrier controlled parking and that was fine. The charge is £10 for 24 hours which seemed perfectly reasonable. On our second day in Bristol we took our car and returned at 5pm when there were no spaces and we parked on the street. We went out again across town, and on return at 11 p.m. there were still no spaces and we parked for free on the deserted street one block away and did not feel comfortable leaving our car in that area. The hotel has inadequate parking facilities.

Breakfast is not good. Inadequate facilities for number of guests - scrambled eggs were cold as last portion- when they ran out there was no replacement. Choice of bread is white sliced or brown sliced. Best not to dwell on it, but in comparison to the other Hiltons at which we have stayed this was a huge disappointment. We would recommend not paying for this meal.

Well, theTV is an iMac! The carpets have tread inches deep and the room was as smart as any hotel I have ever been in. Quiet rooms, comfortable ambience. Could not fault it. Breakfast was as tasty as I have ever had in a chain hotel. Impressed and very good value, with on-site parking only £10. Recommended.
