The Bristol Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our room was typically small but very nicely appointed and very clean. The bath had a nice-sized tub/shower and a very clever night light. Big fluffy towels and many quality toiletries were offered. However, if you are a rather ‘wide’ person, you will difficulty maneuvering in the bathroom space due to the configuration of the door and TP dispenser. The breakfast buffet was wonderful!!!

We stayed here for one night and were wowed by the friendly staff and lovely vibe of this place. We arrived at 12.30 (check in was at 2pm) and because our room was not ready - we were offered a (very welcome!) drink in the bar whilst waiting. Within 30 minutes we advised the room was ready (still before the promised time). Our room (number 529) was a twin room and was very well appointed with a view over the water. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed including jolly nice toiletries! We ate dinner in the hotel too and the food was lovely and our waiter was so helpful and chatty. Check-out was efficient and we were given complimentary water to take away. We felt like valued guests and every single member of staff we encountered had the time of day for us. We will certainly return and recommend. A huge bonus is the car part which you can access from any floor of the hotel and the charge is just £5 per day. Be warned though, the entrance and exit are very narrow and I found it tricky in a Discovery.

What fabulous welcome and reception staff the Bristol hotel have warm inviting and charming Jera and javia are lovely The rooms we booked an executive room god only know what a standard room is like because it’s just so so tiny We asked reception if they had any further rooms tor review but unfortunately no !! The rooms are tiny you can barely swing a cat ! Disappointing I do t live in a tiny room yet I spent almost £200 a night to stay in on shame x

This a very good hotel to stay in Bristol. Reception desk is friendly and pretty quick. Although I arrived at 2 am, it took less than 5 minutes from pressing the door bell to get in to my room. Restaurant manager and staff are doing an excellent job. They are friendly, supportive and quick. Good food, a bit of more variation of food would add more value to the buffet. The only issue I had was that there was no floor mat for the bathroom on one day. I guess that it was not systematic and the person may have simply forget it. The hotel is conveniently located. Wifi is easy to connect, working properly and fast. I would recommend to anyone and would stay again in future.

Hotel has got the potential of being really good. there is however some room for improvement a) check in took ages. although there we six people of hotel staff behind the counter, only two were serving and checking in took ages b) although we booked a double there was only shampoo etc for 1 person c) no fridge / minibar d) no info about checking out time anywhere to be found e) list of TV channels listed more than 30 - available were not even 10 f) tv in corner - so that it is difficult to watch in bed good location, good parking, very quite

Stayed for one night for my girlfriends birthday. When the receptionist found out we were offered a complimentary drink at the hotel bar! Cocktails were fantastic and could not have had a better stay.wluld definitely book again!

Stayed here as a surprise for my partners birthday, on check in the hotel staff was friendly and professional and in fact remained so the whole stay, they upgraded our room and when walking into the room my partner had a lovely surprise of a card and a chocolate surprise! Really appreciated the thoughtful touch. The view from the room was fantastic and the whole experience from comfy bed, luxury touches and brilliant shower just made for a lovely stay! Great location and would totally recommend!

The hotel is in good central location for business travel. Reception staff were very welcoming. Room was clean with nice bed linen and adequate bathroom. Room also quiet . Breakfast good in nice location. Areas for felt a bit 'pokey', court yard view mildly depressing concrete monstrosity, room lacked air con and temperature control and could be better sound proofing between rooms. Despite this I would stay again as location convenient and better than average service

I was looking forward to staying at the Bristol, having heard amazing things about its sister hotels. The superior room is tiny but comfortable. The toiletries are some of the best I’ve seen, but the toilet seat was faded, wood warped and stains on the ceiling. The room lacks aircon which is standard at a premier inn let alone a 4star. The view over the courtyard/roof is grim and needs enhancement.

Two nights stay and everything went well. Every member of staff we met, smiled. We thought that was good. The food was excellent and portion size suited us perfectly. Room was comfortable and the walk in shower exactly what we wanted. We stayed two nights and would happily return, however we did get an Easter Deal which included breakfast if not if would have been an extra £20. For us elderly folk who eat little that's quite a lot.
