Recent guest reviews

The bedrooms are are a good size but are tired and could do with updating,bathrooms are small and cramped.The restaurant is expensive considering the food on offer and if you want a bottle of wine be prepared to pay an extortionate price.The airport shuttle is a good service but considering you’ve stayed at the hotel it would be a nice touch if it was offered as a courtesy rather than a charge.

My first hotel review. How exciting, they had mulled wine and mince pies out for guests on arrival. I don’t think it was alcoholic, but I guess that’s for the best. I’ve stayed in my room and was able to make a good start to my novel. “Memoirs of a Henchman”. I bet you want to know more about the hotel, well, read another review. (A positive one). Chapter one sees our protagonist at the run down nuclear power plant, guarding the door to something most probably important. He can only assume, since in the 63 days on the job, it has been manned 24/7 and only been used 7, no wait, 8, no, sorry, it was 7 times. He thought it was 8 because of that time an engineer was going to enter, then after patting his pockets, realised he was supposed to be in another part of the plant. So 63 days, 7 times. That makes it less than - what was that - anyway, that’s around once every. ‘Thunk’ a heavy, almost steel like palm had struck his neck and he dropped like a stone rectangle. As his eyesight dimmed and he drifted out of the conscious world, he saw a glimmer of the yellow cape worn by... That’s as far as I got. Food’s arrived and looks pretty good. Burger me. 5*

Tired, dated and smelly rooms, staff who were not very helpful and struggled with their English and absolutely no mobile phone signal (perhaps they should get a booster?). Holiday Inn is such a variable company from the excellent to poor - this is at the wrong end of that spectrum!

Stayed for a weekend for a nearby family wedding. The location is remote and taxis are hard to come by. We stayed in a ground floor room just past the gym. When we laid in bed, we could see a thick layer of dust on the wall where previous guests had written 'clean me' and other witty one liners.... Breakfast was ok. Would not stay here again.

Arrived for an overnight stay after a late flight into Bristol Airport that had been delayed 2 hours, so we did not actually check in until the early hours. The receptionist was friendly and helpful and we quickly got to our room . The room itself was in a poor state with badly stained carpet and a generally poor standard of housekeeping. I also found that sleep was difficult with poor pillows and a mattress which appeared to have a spring digging into me. In the morning I also discovered some sort of biological deposit on the bed base. As a IHG Club platinum member I have stayed in IHG hotels all over the world and I must admit that this was one of the worst in terms of room quality. I reported my concerns to reception the next day and admit that the receptionist was very apologetic and helpful. As the only IHG hotel anywhere near Bristol Airport I feel that it needs to up its game and certainly a refurbishment of the rooms and an improvement in housekeeping standards is called for.

Arrived late on a wednesday night for overnight with parking for 4 days. Booked "Executive Family Room" for family with 2 kids. Receptionist was somewhat random with no real idea of our parking dates: having filled in numerous forms we finally checked in. Room was small and very basic, double bed was rock hard and the pillows perhaps the most uncomfortable I have ever slept on (I travel weekly worldwide on business): kids were on a sofa bed circa 1975 which was well worn with visible springs. Bathroom had the most basic amenities with the added extra of a used earbud on the sink. In the morning we checked out: no one informed us of breakfast availabilty at 6.30 am. Breakfast room was deserted and in semi darkness, zero staff and totally uninviting. Frankly given the price (£195) one can do far better in Bristol area.

first class service from reception staff to bar staff. food was first class and excellent service from Katie the waitress from time we sat down till the time we left, always a pleasant smile on her face. would highly recommend thanks guys

Paid £101 for one night with parking. Check in fine. Room was ok. 2 single beds which I felt were like being on a boat. Very rocky. Not too much comfort. Good choice if pillows however. Food was ok price n tasted overlooked back of hotel so could hear kitchen staff chatting at times. Otherwise quiet. Chose for location n probably ok if get double room but never book a twin again.

Well, I have my day in court coming up. I was a genuine customer of the hotel, never again will I ever step foot in that 'Rip Off' piece of Britain. Hotel wouldn't help even though I was there using their facilities and paying for it, oh and of course they pay ParkingEye to target their customers and try and get an extra £100 off them.

Hotel set in peaceful and green surroundings. Recepcion desk staff were very friendly. Room was nice and quiet. The bed was very comfortable. Great location for an early flight. The proximity to Bristol Airport is great. Furthermore there is a shuttle bus to airport very helpful.I'll recommend. Very pleased.
