The Bristol Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed overnight at the Bristol as my husband and I went to see wicked at the theatre. We have stayed here previously and again it didn’t disappoint. Check in was very quick and we were given an upgrade which was a nice surprise. Our room was on the top floor with city views, it was a very comfortable room with a nespresso machine which we loved! The hotel is so central to most places so great for exploring Bristol. Breakfast was great and the staff were really attentive again. I would again recommend this hotel and if we ever needed to stay overnight on Bristol I would definitely go back again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

I booked this hotel because of the high rating on and I am glad I did. The hotel is very central, 2 minutes walk away from the city centre with plenty of bars and restaurants to keep anyone occupied for a week! The hotel itself does not look much from the outside, but step inside and it’s a different story. Very clean, really friendly and helpful staff, the corridors are clean and don’t smell dusty. The room I booked was the cheapest available but it was more than good, the bed is very comfortable, there is a decent sized desk to actually do some work, internet connectivity was amazing, almost 60 Mb/s up and down. Bathroom is a good size with a bath tub and a good powerful shower. The only slight downside is that my room (421) backed on a side street which was quite noisy at night despite the double glazing. Overall, a well deserved 5 star rating!

This is such a good hotel, in a great location overlooking the dock with its bobbing boats, wealth of maritime history and wide selection of eateries, cafes and bars. It's especially pretty at night with lights on the bridge and along the dockside as well as on the restaurants. Our room had a great view and was 'only' a double. It was cosy, clean and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay, robes, slippers, a wide variety of teas and coffees, hot chocolate and bottled still and sparkling water. Staff are friendly, helpful and really care that you have a relaxing break. The breakfast was amazing with a capital A, so fresh and so nicely presented. A wide selection for all tastes, traditional full English, veggie options and a juice 'special' as well as a smoothie of the day, nuts, seeds, dried fruits, all kinds of cereals and a creamy Porridge. We could go on but there is too much else to list! Try the cocktails which are fabulous with the evening view across the water. The floor to high ceiling windows of the bar and grille make the most of the surroundings and even make the Brizzle drizzle look good. Excellent value for money, central for lovely pubs, museums, galleries, the old city, the rest of the docks, the cathedral, Park Street and the modern shopping centre. We will def visit again and highly recommend 😊 ps couldn't get 'hotel ratings' to work but it's 5 all the way

Good quality hotel, very friendly staff and lovely bedrooms, many restaurants to pick from in the local area - albeit the food at the hotel is good - I would recommend this hotel. Great location within Bristol City Centre and Parking as well at a very good rate for a city stay.

The Bristol Hotel is in a beautiful spot very accessible to exploring the area. Lots of good pubs and restaurants nearby. Staff was very nice and the rooms comfortable. Would definitely recommend this hotel!

My wife and I arrange an overnight stay at this hotel after it was recommended by a friend of ours. Parking was next door in a NCP, cheap at only £5 for 24 hours, check in was pain free and we had a room on the top floor over looking the harbour with great views. We only had breakfast in the hotel and glad we came down early as it soon got very busy, but the food was of great quality and plenty of it and the staff very friendly and helpful in recommending a lovely walk around the harbour on this cold but sunny Sunday morning. The location is perfect for the Hippodrome and there are so many restaurants to choose from and many bars. Only minor issue with the location is that it could be a little noisy at times, but what do you expect being on the harbourside. We would certainly consider staying there again on our next trip to Bristol.

Stayed here on a Saturday night & although it was very busy you weren’t aware of it in the hotel. Very good service & easy check in. Spacious clean room with a nice view. Very central & easy walking distance to all city centre amenities. Also easy access to car park next door. It’s an NCP so quite expensive ! BUT if you stay in the hotel it only costs £5 for 24 hours. Try & find cheaper in central Bristol !

Nice clean room we were upgraded to a deluxe. Parking in NCP car park is £22 for 24 hours a bit excessive. Good facilities in the room and hotel. Thicker duvet needed but I’m a coldy. Good room service menu. Felt a little strange as it seemed to have more business people staying than non business. Good location. Easy to find free wi fi fast speed too. Bathroom grout/ silicon round the bath needs redoing as a little moldy. Good stay so far.

Stayed for one night on business but walls very thin (so not great for sleeping before a bit meeting). I had to ring down to reception at 12:45am to ask them to ask the person in the room next to me to turn their TV down. Which they did. Ordered room service. The wrong thing came to begin with. Pretty cold, uninspiring and very expensive for what it was. Conference facilities good. Room clean. Good extras like ironing board etc. But nespresso machine mentioned on website but no evidence of one in my room

Had a great stay at The Bristol. Great location and parking was a real bonus. Room had everything we needed for an overnight stay. Didn’t eat in but had a drink in the bar and staff were really friendly. Will definitely stay he again on our next visit to Bristol.
