Stayed a night whilst on business. The food was excellent and the service of high standard to the point that I was greeted by name at breakfast the next day. Everyone was very friendly. My only gripe was being woken up at 5:30 in the morning by garbage and delivery trucks outside, as my room was street facing. There was...

One night at the Bristol. Front desk staff were great, room was good with comfy bed and pillows. Pleasant bar area with a waterfront vista. All going well until we ate. Never before have I failed to cut a rump steak with a steak knife and promptly returned it to the kitchen. Unfortunately the message from chef said the replacement...

Southampton, United Kingdom
Reviewed 23 November 2015

Excellent value for money - £78 for 1 night for double room - included overnight parking in next door NCP car park (£20+). Well furnished rooms, with comfortable beds - a bit bijou but what does one expect for this price. Lovely public areas available downstairs. Excellent waterside location. Great service from staff.
