Victoria Square Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff at this hotel were amazing but sadly our stay wasn’t enjoyable. The photos in the website were nothing like the room we were given. It was way overpriced for the type of room we stayed in. The shower didn’t work as soon as the tap was turned on. The location of the room meant there was noise throughout the night and it was very stuffy. The curtains were very thin so at 5am we had sunlight streaming through.....would not recommend it.

This is a well positioned hotel for Clifton and it's many bars and restaurants. The room we stayed in was a decent size, the bed was large, the en suite was tiny and the door opened onto the bed and you had to walk sideways to get in and only one person at a time would fit. There was liquid soap but no other toiletries so you should bring your own. There are coffee and tea facilities, but no fridge or mini bar. The room was clean but not meticulously so. I found some hairs on the shower cubicle tiles which wasn't very nice. We also had an issue with hearing next door's phone conversation which was not only clear as a bell, but we could also hear the person on the other end of the phone. Bizarre to say the least, as the walls appeared to be stone and not partition. The breakfast was decent, but as a buffet style it has the normal drawbacks of heat and what that does to bacon and eggs over time. The staff were polite and efficient. The parking facilities are not free, but cheap for the area. The driveway to the back of the hotel is however very narrow and a large car may have difficulty. I would say there are no bedrooms available that do not require a trip up or down some stairs. This is almost certainly set up for business travellers rather than holiday makers. We enjoyed our stay and would use it again despite what appears to be scathing comments in this review.

Great location for us to visit our daughter. Traditional look and feel to the hotel. Although not used by us, bar and dinner in hotel restaurant available. Car parking too, but again, not used by us. Room size fine for an overnight stay, very clean as was bathroom. Front desk staff very friendly and efficient, thought the breakfast room staff were exceptionally attentive and kindly, constantly checking guests and whether they wanted another cuppa, plus re-stocking the breakfast options (both cooked, croissants, fruit, yogurt, toast and jams). Porter on duty if you’re a dirty stop-out, at night, plus swipe card and porter’s mobile number. Yes, it can be noisy at night outside, but that’s a very popular area of the city for you and obviously outside the hotel staff’s influence. A very enjoyable stay, thank you

Stayed in a small double. Very clean, nicely decorated. Travelled alone to go on a course, staff made me feel very welcome and were very helpful. Chef is fantastic, cooked special amazing evening meals to cope with my allergies - the food is divine! I felt very relaxed, unhurried. I would recommend this hotel for its quality and characture, for the excellent staff and fantastic chef. Can't wait to go again!

Met for a 50th Univ reunion so location was ideal. Comfortable if modestly appointed rooms but well serviced and it was very quiet. Off road parking made the journey's end less of an ordeal. Delighted that at breakfast tea was served very hot as it should be.

Great hotel centrally located and within walking distance from all the town. Rooms were spacious and comfortable bed. Staff friendly and helped park if parking was full. Breakfast was relaxing and great fresh poached eggs. The coffee was surprising good for a filter coffee. Will definitely stay again for business which is monthly. Thank you team.

excellent! the room was clean, overlooking the pretty square, within easy reach of the Trendy Clifton Village, where there are many places to eat and take leisurely coffee stops, only a 5 min walk from the suspension bridge, Clifton is a delightful place, but still within an easy walk or bus ride of Bristol, the open top tour bus stops directly opposite the hotel, the best way we felt to see Bristol, the breakfast at the hotel was plentiful and varied, the staff were all friendly and polite, I would definitely recommend the Victoria to anyone, such a welcome change form faceless corporate chain hotels.

Our third visit with our young family . As before the hotel delivered a great value for money stopover in Clifton. Great staff, a handy location, spacious room, good bathroom, parking and lovely breakfast ticks every box for a mid- price hotel

I stayed for 2 nights whilst working in the area, in a small double room which was as described, small. This is a standard / dated 3 star which is a bit faded in parts. The room was fine, not the sort of place you could work in as a small dressing table rather than a desk. It was in the next door building, so I needed a cost for breakfast on the first day (lucky it wasn't raining. Both nights I managed to get into the car park at the back -it is very tight and people do park all over the place. The room was very clean and included a standard shower gel/shampoo/hand wash that was all the same. The hairdryer was insider the dressing table - the standard one speed / setting hotel hairdryer. Clean towels every day, nice staff. Breakfast was a tad basic (chaffing dishes, few cereals - nothing cooked to order in the standard offer) and if it hadn't been included in the rate, I would have got this elsewhere as this is very close to a whole range of restaurants. There was some bottled water in the room which was a nice touch. I needed to buy an eye mask (I forgot my usual one) and earplugs as I'm a light sleeper and there was no blackout in the room. As a listed building it's single window glazing (at least in the second floor, rear bedroom in the annex where I was), so you're woken to the dawn chorus of seagulls.

Great location with helpful and friendly reception staff. The breakfast was top notch with a good selection well presented and cooked. I stayed in room 217 overlooking the trees to the rear. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to my friends and family.
