The hotel was ok. The service not so good. They didn't warned about a WiFi outage that was planned, so we ended without internet during one of the days. They also require a deposit, and so far we didn't had the deposit back, despite all the calls... Really poor customer service.

Me and my wife stayed here for 1 night for our anniversary. We had an amazing room with a balcony which had a good view of Bristol. The room was very clean and spacious and had the most comfortable bed. We both loved how housekeeping made swans and love hearts with the towels. All the staff in reception and the restaurant was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is walking distance to shops and restaurants aswell. I would highly recommend staying in this hotel to everyone. Thank you to all the staff in this hotel for making our night very special. Breakfast was very tasty too!!!

Warm welcome on arrival, large spacious and very central to shopping eating and drinking. Large well equipped bedroom with iron etc. plenty of coffee and tea available Mini bar is empty as you have to ask reception to fill it with your choice ( a good idea ) Breakfast was first class Buffet service but plenty of choice for all tastes and unlimited served tea and coffee.

With the knowledge that I would be arriving in Bristol in the dark after a long ferry and rail journey my first priority was to be able to find and locate a good hotel easily. This would be as close to the rail station as possible. This hotel filled the bill and it was reassuring to be able to spot the green HOLIDAY INN logo on a building within sight of the Temple Meads Station concourse. It was then just a few minutes walk to the hotel. The hotel was all I required for a comfortable 1 night stay. The bar/dining area could provide food and drink so that it was not necessary to go out again.

- had one friday night in bristol - room seemed soundproofed inside and out - save for the sound of pigeons cooing on the window ledge... - big comfy bed - high quality bathroom and huge powerful shower - check in check out like at holiday inns all over is always quite slow but not a big deal (busy times might be an issue) - good location for restaurants and bars on Gloucester / cheltenham road - about 15-20 min walk to temple meads

Located 5-10 mins walk from the centre opposite Bristol Temple Meads station. Parking at rear- use the NCP if the hotel car park full; NCP a lot cheaper too. Reception helpful, friendly staff. Good decor throughout. Bedroom comfortable, a tad small maybe. Very clean and quiet. Good air con. Breakfast buffet was perfect, the right hot choices and continental too. Nothing too flashy. Very nice helpful staff. 4 stars as a bit pricey!

Stayed here on business as we were advised to use this rather than the Holiday inn express at Bristol North. Although this meant a longer journey to work each day, the hotel is located in the centre of the city so we were only a short walk from many of the shops and restaurants (the quay area is a 10 to 15 minute walk). I've stayed in 3 different rooms so far and can recommend not having a balcony room as there was a lot of traffic noise leading to a restless night. Other rooms, and especially the executive rooms, are very good. The Hypnos beds are very comfortable and the rooms are well equipped.

What an enjoyable experience to stay there last weekend. Lovely staff, helpful and friendly, and really excellent rooms. Another hotel chain calls themselves Premier, but they are not. Stay here for a MUCH better experience at a lower price!

I recently stayed at this Holiday Inn where I had 17 rooms for a group booking. Firstly I wish to say that the whole process of booking the group was very easy and the service from the team was great. The stay itself was also great, lovely rooms, breakfast was tasty and there was a good variety and the location is excellent for the nearby Cabot Circus. I’d like to mention Katie in reservations who really looked after us when some of the group had our flights Home cancelled and we needed to stay an extra night. I highly recommend this hotel for couples, families or groups. My only complaint is that as an IHG loyalty customer I didn’t receive my points as promised.

We had just come back from a late event somewhere in the Bristol area. Mcdonalds was closed and my friend was so upset she tripped over the road and grazed her knees. We walked into our hotel to be greeted by the lovely Aaron, he supplied us with first aid and gave us the details of the local Dominos so we could order our well deserved food. He was charming and such a delight. I wish everyone was like Aaron. Also the showers are incredible, I think Aaron is responsible for how great they were.
