We stayed at this hotel for one night. We chose it because it had a restaurant, but when we tried to book, we were told it was not in service on a SATURDAY night. This was a complete misrepresentation to what they advertise on their website. When we got to the room, I was very relieved that I had had a shower before arriving. The bathroom was shabby, scruffy and the grout in the tiles around the shower area was dirty. One wall in the bedroom was dirty and scuffed and the bed had a mattress topper to hide how awful the bed was. Suffice to say neither of us slept very well. Breakfast in the morning was a complete and utter joke. My husband had to sit and watch me eat my breakfast, because they could not organise enough food to be brought out to the buffet. When I complained, a token gesture was made to deduct breakfast from our bill. The quality of the breakfast was pathetic and the management was sub standard.

We stayed her for 3 nights, having stayed before when it was a Best Western Hotel. Nice rooms, tea, coffee and bottled water all replenished daily. Very clean. Friendly staff. Good breakfast Parking now chargeable (only £5.00 per day) Easy walk into the City Centre bus stop right outside hotel

An over priced hotel and not worth the Money, the choice in Bristol is plentiful and the competition at their prices is high but sadly this place is way behind the times. All I can say is......must try harder !

This was a fantastic find. The area is so lovely and safe. It's not far from the city centre and the sights. The number 8 bus (which runs to the train station) stops right outside. Bristol is a very friendly place. The room was spacious and clean - a home from home. I really liked the little touches to the room. The staff are really knowledgeable. They couldn't do more for you. The breakfast is amazing as well.

Stayed here for 1 night in a large twin room. The room was clean and tidy and had plenty of space. The hotel staff were amazing. There is no lift at this hotel and our room was on the first floor. As my husband is having to use crutches at the moment the receptionist insisted on carrying our bags up to our room on arrival and then the next morning when we gave our keys back insisted on taking the bags to our car. As we left our room the chap who was delivering the fresh linen to our floor also insisted on carrying the bags to reception for us. This help meant a lot to us and we would like to thank you all. We would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend this hotel.

We booked this hotel the night before. We received a warm welcome and all the staff worked hard to ensure our stay was enjoyable. We've stayed here three times now and each time it's been pleasurable. The hotel is located in the village of Clifton, a desirable area we love to visit. It's close to shops and restaurants. Take a walk to the suspension bridge and then stop for a beverage at the White Lion Pub and go outside - early evening. We look forward to visiting again in the future. Kind regards, Richard & Gail.

This hotel is not cheap - presumably because of the Clifton location and because it is not one of the big hotel chains. For £116.10 I would have expected better. We had no shower gel in the bathroom. We pointed this out and although the container was filled it did not work. Repairs to he shower had not been cleaned up. The T.V. is far too small for the size of room. The car park is very hard to negotiate and costs and extra £5 on top of the overall charge. I would not recommend this hotel.

I had great expectations for this hotel but sadly it didn’t quite deliver on all the points we like to see in a hotel for the seasoned work traveller. Let’s give you a run down based on what we usually mark hotels on: SHOWER my garden room had a shower that I had to crouch under to get under, not high enough and pressure average. BREAKFAST Sad to report not great. A tired looking hot buffet. Even at 0730 beans looked dry on top, one day the bacon was so badly cooked. Dry and inedible. We made a bacon sandwich and couldn’t bite through it. We told the waiter and he said “sorry it shouldn’t be like that” and walked off. We also thought we’d found where the Bristol hockey team keep their pucks but turned out to be the poached eggs. Rarely do you see a hotel try and pre cook poached eggs and use a 1980s style egg poacher! Breakfast needs jazzing up a little. It’s rare that during the week we didn’t want to go to breakfast! CAR PARK Really busy and if you commit to driving down to it and it’s busy, you’re snookered at trying to get out again. We ended up having people blocking each other in. ROOM SERVICE Initially we called room service and had ten mins to order. We were informed we had the wrong menu in our rooms! We were given the new menu. Ordered pizza and halloumi bites. Room service needed at 2130. We ordered 2130. We were called at 2200 to say food has been delayed for another 20mins. We were given a beer for compensation. Which was good. Sadly the bites weren’t that amazing, insanely salty (more than halloumi normally!). The pizza. Great base by the menu failed to tell us that the chosen pizzas didn’t have cheese on! There was a VN next to it; we assumed vegetarian not vegan. After calling reception they said there was “key” on menu. It’s great they do a vegan option but it needs to be clearer. No cheese is a fairly major ingredient missing. For a hotel that has vegan options they need to have stricter buffet control at breakfast. Meat tongs are kept in with egg tongs etc etc. All in all it’s ok. Rooms are ok but generally it sadly does need improving. We do leave reviews for good places not just ones we want to feedback about.

We had a lovely weekend in Bristol, and stayed here. It is in the best location, opposite the beautiful park, large, ancient trees - respendent in their autumn garb. It is easy to get around and walk down to the waterfont area, or onto Whiteladies Rd where there are pubs and restaurants etc. Our room was in the annexe next to the main hotel and was nicely decorated - subtle and tasteful. We had a 'small' double - and it was quite small, but designed well so that you had everything you needed. it was perfect for us for a weekend, but I think it may have been too small for longer and if you had a lot of luggage. We slept well, and the bed and bed linen were really comfy. Breakfast was a buffet - which I'm generally less keen on - but the food was lovely - decent bacon, properly cooked, lovely scrambled and poached eggs, abundant toast plus fruit etc. The quality of the ingredients and cooking were not like your 'usual' dried out, tough breakfast from a buffet. All staff were professional and courteous, efficient. We had a lovely stay - thank you!! PS would recommend dinner atthe River Cafe canteen close by in Whiteladies Rd! :-)

Last minute I book this hotel is nice only 1 thing is they charge for car park cost £5 & no lift AS we’ll for a stay is ok relay small room we had wasant much choice for diner menu but we went to Nando’s 20 minute to walk lot Resturant there not bad
