Fantastic location on the harbour and close to main restaurants, bars and attractions. Beautiful hotel and rooms. Clean, modern and fully equipped with water, free newspaper and coffee machine. There was no kettle but I'm sure we would have got one if we asked for one. It was brilliant having the car-park so close by and at £5 per day,...

My wife and I stayed here for one night as we were a tending a concert in the centre. The hotel is ideally located close to the city centre. Parking is adjacent to the hotel in an NCP Car Park at a discounted rate of £5 overnight which we thought reasonable. At reception we received a warm welcome and were...

From walking in we were made to feel valued. The receptionist pre-empted so many questions it was like she was telepathic. So friendly too; not that fake insincere friendly either. The hotel is in a great location and had a deal with NCP next door for cheap parking. The little cocktail bar at the back on the waterfront had live...

I stayed here with a group of friends on a 4 day golf tour. The hotel came as part of a package we had arranged through a golf specialist travel agency. Their claim was that it is in the heart of the Harbourside area close to many pubs and restaurants and that they had placed many other people there with...

We picked this location because the Hotel has a great new year party. We had never visited Bristol before but there were direct flights to Bristol Airport from where we live and we wanted a party. The room was spacious, quiet and clean. The staff were incredibly friendly and always happy to help out with our questions about places to...

I booked three rooms at the Bristol hotel for our weekend stay with our family. On the Friday evening our first night at the hotel there was a stag night. Lots of young drunken men wandering around the hotel reception swearing, the smell of cigarettes for the entrance where they where all smoking, was really off putting. We where trying...

Stayed here three nights earlier this week. The hotel is clean, with roomy, well-appointed rooms, and the #70 and 73 buses from the Bristol Temple Meads train station stop right at the front door. The fare is 2 pounds for a "short ride." The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and a short walk over the bridge takes you to...
