Best Western Henbury Lodge Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Ideal for the recent business trip. Reception staff was very friendly and helpful, even showed me to the room. Nice compact room, excellent shower, a comfortable bed. Floor boards creaked a bit, but it is a 300 year old converted lodge. Excellent cooked breakfast the following morning, everything cooked to order. Would definitely stay again if working in the area.

Nice staff, clean rooms that require modernising-especially the wood chip on the walls, superb showers, good food, well located, easy car parking and safe. We found the prices for the evening a tad pricey so ate out in Bristol although there is a nice chippy five minutes away.

Not a bad place parking easy out front . Rooms are accessible by lots of stairs so be warned. Room was large and bathroom very clean . Bed nice but a bit soft for me . Small bar and staff friendly. Local pubs near by and nice to walk to . In all not to bad at all .

I was looking for a hotel for 1 night (3 rooms) close to Bristol city centre and everything was very expensive and did not include free parking. I found this hotel which was a 20 min drive and with free parking at a reasonable price. The rooms were lovely with very clean bathrooms. The rooms are slightly dark but it was for only 1 night so served our purpose. The lodge itself is lovely and not far from the castle. The lady at reception was very friendly. I would stay again.

I stayed for one night on business. Positives: Very comfortable bed Clean room, well equipped Free fast wifi Quiet Friendly helpful staff Lovely old house, pleasant gardens Refurbished bathroom, great shower Room service fast, good value meal Could be better: My room was up three steep flights of stairs, no lift, so not suitable if you have limited mobility 30 minutes from the centre of bristol, I didn't realise it was so far out. Limited menu I would stay again, good value for money.

Booked last minute as visiting friends. 20 mins away by car and it was really quite. Check in nice and easy, staff we encountered were friendly. Rooms are modern and spacious. More like an apartment then a room. Comfy beds with memory foam mattress, proper shower with decent pressure. Even power sockets by the bed. Only downside was only 2 coffee sachets. But you can get more from reception. Overall a fantastic overnight stay and will defiantly stay there next time we are down in the area.

Arrived on Sunday when restaurant does not open ( central reservations didn't mention that!), but fortunately the bus stop right outside has excellent service into Bristol (about 30mins) so spent evening there.... actually a good plan. The hotel is a lovely old building, but 4 flights of stairs to our room... bit put out when found TV remote not working, ended up swapping with another room, but too old for up & down stairs all evening!.Staff all very friendly (especially Kay in dining room) and cooked to order breakfasts great, An earlier review mentions small tables in dining room, and extension lead wiring in bedroom, both very true but overall was pleasant stay.

This is a lovely hotel. It is quite homely and quaint. It has a beautiful garden and a pleasant, small restaurant. All the staff are super friendly and helpful. We had dinner in the restaurant three times: whilst there is limited choice on the menu, the food served is very good quality and did not disappoint. The cooked breakfast is tasty too, with impressive products. However, the poached eggs were overcooked, but the waitress noticed and returned them. The second lot were perfect.  We stayed on two occasions recently. The first time we were in room twelve which is an attic conversion room. The sloping ceiling was a bit cumbersome for us as we are tall. The second time we stayed, we were on the same floor in a large family room (room 9) which did not have sloping ceilings. However, it was on the third floor and the steep staircase does make it difficult if you have a lot of luggage. If I were to return, I would request a room below number eight, thus being on the lower floors. It is quite an old building, with very creaky floors. However, the bathrooms have been refurbished and are great, with fantastic showers. The rooms where spotlessly clean on both occasions.

Seven of us had afternoon tea here, it was very good. Delicious sandwiches, cakes and tea! With an option of alcohol is required! We were seated in the small lounge so had the room to ourselves. The lady who served us was terrific, very friendly. She also showed me around the garden as she could see I was interested in taking photos of the beautiful old building.

Stayed 3 nights, a mixed experience, hotel very pleasant but is small and furniture and fittings strange in places, with emphasis on mirrors and quasi Asian feel. Dined saturday evening, small dining room, very limited menu and pricy, but very good food. Only one other couple dining, no atmosphere. Unfortunately the dining experience is spoilt by Tables with inadequate leg room. Excellent breakfast, best granola I have ever had, but one morning the delivery of yoghurt etc had not come so things missing. Bar has limited opening hours, but garden is lovely for a drink if weather good Location is well out of the centre, a £15 daytime taxi ride to Clifton arranged by reception a ripoff, but on a good bus route to the centre, pity the first mornings receptionist was unable to advise on this, but other mornings better advise. It is near a very large park, the Blaise Estate and its beautiful village houses. Bedroom very comfortable bed and with stunning bathroom, even if glass sink not ideal. Unfortunately basic decorating, uncomfortable chair, poor wardrobe space and wiring an issue. Particular concern that all wiring is based on trailing extension cables which were a trip hazard and overheated iPad charger. Possible risks raised with receptionist on leaving, and the reason I would not stay again, safety more important than a flashy bathroom
