flew into Bristol airport and caught the very frequent coach service into central Bristol. the stop for Temple Meads railway station is 200 yards from the Holiday Inn. the hotel is also about half a mile from the main shopping precincts and also the river walks and amenities. well placed indeed. A regular bus service runs past the front door... More

Stayed here for a catch up with a friend. It's only a couple of minutes walk from Temple Meads station. The twin room was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Breakfast was busy (it's served in the small lobby area) but there was the usual choice of pastries, fruit, cereal and some hot choices. Staff are friendly. It's... More

Basic, but good enough for a night before a flight. Close to the city and the train station. Comfortable bed. Breakfast is adequate. Walking distance (10 min) to the main attractions. Compared to others, good value for money.

Stayed over night on business. Well situated opposite Bristol Temple Meads train station. Staff were helpful. Room was clean. Breakfast offered a cooked option (sausage, scrambled egg and baked beans) as well as a continental breakfast along with the usual cerials and yogurt. Would definitely recommend for business or short stay for leasure.

I chose to stay here for one night on business as I could not get a room at the Hilton within my expense budget. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with my choice. I rang the hotel prior to driving to check how to access the car park. There's a narrow street off the main road that's easy to miss.... More

Excellent location, opposite the road from the train station and a 10 minute walk from the city centre. Clean rooms and comfortable beds! Strange noises in rooms though (pipes?), if you're a light sleeper.
