We stayed here in February for two nights. It is convenient for Temple Meads station, St Mary Redcliffe church, and the city centre and there is on-site parking. Bristol is continuing to develop that part of the city and so your satnav might have to be ignored as you wend your way through the road closures and changes to routes. The room was warm, quiet and pleasant with a lovely view of St Mary Redcliffe opposite. The beds were comfortable and there was a chaise longue instead of the usual armchair. The bathroom was adequate with a decent supply of toiletries and thick towels. Unfortunately the public areas are not attractive. The reception area is in a wide open space leading onto a bar and seating areas. The colour scheme is dull and the furniture does not look comfortable. It needs to be made to look and feel more cosy in order to tempt guests to spend any time there. In the 17th century, Bristol was one of the most prosperous cities in England due in part to its glass-making industry. We had breakfast in the Kiln restaurant which celebrates this history. It is a huge conical shaped room and was staffed by pleasant waitresses, but it too feels functional rather than comfortable.
All the comforts of home, well situated in the Bristol City Center. The hotel is easy walking distance to the train station as well as many interesting tourist attractions, shopping and dining. Rooms are very comfortable with real A/C for those times that mother nature doesn't behave. The fitness studio, bar, and a restaurant give you all the comforts of home.
Stayed here for 2 nights on 13th and 14th of April. Booked through booking .com because it was cheaper than booking it through hilton honours, although I am a member. Paid £309.90 for 2 nights bed and breakfast in a deluxe king room. Not worth it. On check in I was told I would not be receiving any points on my hilton honours account because I hadn't booked it through them. I was not told where the restaurant was or what time breakfast was. The room was disappointing, the shower cubicle was just inside the bathroom door and was tiny, in order to dry you had to step out of the shower and go further into the bathroom leaving puddles on the floor because there was no room to dry in front of the shower. Reception/bar area was cold, as was the restaurant. Good points, bed was very comfortable and we slept well, breakfast was very good as was the evening meals, staff in both the restaurant and bar area were very efficient and friendly. Hotel is only 5 minutes walk from the harbourside and 5 minutes walk from the city centre.
The room was small but clean and comfortable and contained everything I needed (including Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries!) I was here for a conference and the conference room was great, bottles of water were replenished, drinks and snacks at breaks and a varied buffet at lunch (with a good selection for vegetarians, although not labelled which would have been useful). It was great having the gym to use after being sat in lectures all day, it's Small, and I'm not a regular gym goer but it did what I needed (could have done with better air con). Breakfast was Lovely, so much to choose from! It was nice to sit in the bar to relax with a drink (but no fevertree tonic 😉). Loved the cookie you got at check in... can I have one when I check out?!
Stayed one night in this hotel, with my daughter. Tried to book a twin room but none were available. Received a call from the hotel encouraging me to upgrade to a king room, then we would have more space and the bed could be split. This was at a cost of £20. Slightly disappointed on arrival as the room didn't feel especially spacious, the 'split' between the beds was a matter of inches (which was fine, but not £20-worth of a split). Apparently the upgrade also included the coffee machine and some bottled water. I heard someone else checking in to the hotel who also wanted a twin room, who was also being encouraged to upgrade. I have queried this with the hotel, and apparently there are 30 twin rooms. So, just a heads up, to get in quick if you prefer a twin, or your only choice will be a £20 upgrade, which must be quite easy money for Hilton. Other than that, room was quite comfortable and staff were polite. Well located if arriving at Bristol Temple Meads.
For my first ever trip to Europe/England/etc I was slightly nervous, thankfully the staff were absolutely INCREDIBLE! From checking in, to the hundred questions I had over 6 days there they made me feel completely welcome. Absolutely would only stay here for next trip to Bristol.
Stayed at the hotel overnight last weekend after seeing a show at the Hippodrome. The hotel is well situated for the harbour side and it's amenities, is comfortable and spotlessly clean. The welcome from the reception staff was great and the warm chocolate chip cookies we were given on arrival a nice touch. I had requested an early check-in as we would be attending a matinee performance at the hippodrome Theatre and received an e-mail to state that if a room was ready then this would be accommodated but that they would store our luggage securely in any case. As it turned out there was a room available which was very nice, comfortable bed and pillows, great bathroom etc. Breakfast on Sunday had lots of choice, cooked, cereals toast etc and the dining room staff were great. Definitely stay again.
Stayed here with our sons for a short break in executive rooms which were very nice and well equipped. The staff in this hotel are some of the friendliest we have come across particularly at breakfast. We didn’t try the restaurant but had breakfast here. Good selection of food including a hot buffet which whilst tasty was not hot. This would be my only criticism of the hotel but appreciate that on a buffet it is hard to keep things hot. If staying again I would ask for a view of the church.
Booked using my points, as a Gold member I got the VIP treatment, cookies on arrival, drink vouchers on arrival and also free parking (otherwise there is a charge of £15), all in all a great place, I would like to pass my compliments to the GM and his team, from reception staff to the breakfast staff, from bar staff to the housekeeping staff, everyone was vigilant, thumbs up !
Booked here for a weekend break in Bristol. Hotel is lovely, staff are friendly & efficient. We did have a problem with our room, no heating, rang down to reception within minutes a guy came up & offered us a radiator & second key to keep it warm whilst we were out, brilliant, unfortunately then the shower drain was extremely slow to drain so rang down to reception again who moved us straight away with an upgraded room. Breakfast was really good, plenty of choice. Location - convenient for trains, buses, walking, will definitely return
