Myself and my partner recently stayed at the hotel for her 30th Birthday! The hotel was perfectly placed for all the small boutique type shops and there were numerous little bars for the breaks inbetween shopping! The hotel was lovely and looked great from the outside, staff were lovely on arrival and I managed to get a parking space directly...

Really pleased we stayed in Clifton on our Bristol trip, and for this the Rodney Hotel was perfect, right by the bus stop for catching the 8/9 from Templemeads, and you are right in the heart of Clifton amongst lovely cafes and restaurants. Clifton suspension bridge is only 5 minutes away, and multiple walks along the river. We also walked...

Dear Kate P, I’m so pleased you enjoyed your recent stay and enjoyed all the Clifton has to offer. Our location is such a central one, that it makes exploring not only the village but also the city center and surround areas really easy. As a lot of our past reviews have stated, parking can be a little tricky in...

We stayed just one night at The Rodney as my husband had an evening event to attend in Bristol. First I must say that the staff are brilliant at this hotel, they are both pleasant and professional.

I've stayed at the Rodney hotel a few times during the week while working in Bristol. The building is interesting and the location is great.

I've stayed at the Rodney on a couple of occasions now and I am always impressed by the friendliness of the service and the decent breakfast on offer. The complimentary toiletries are very nice too! It is superbly priced for the location. Parking can be difficult but not an insurmountable problem. We stayed on the ground floor (Room 5) which...

I booked this hotel specifically for the location and the history of the building, as my girlfriend is from abroad and I was keen to show her around beautiful Clifton village. Sadly, on arrival in our taxi, the front of the hotel was totally hidden behind ugly scaffolding, we had not been informed about this in advance, so highly embarrassing...

Dear BarcelonaPaulo24, Thank you for taking the time to review the Rodney, I am disappointed that you were obviously not entirely happy with your stay. Unfortunately the website you made your reservation through does not pass guest contact details on to us, and we need to go through them to contact you. Due to this convoluted process I am terribly...

Stayed here for my birthday. Unlike other comments on here we were not informed about the scaffolding outside our room. Had hoped for a lie in but knowing that builders will be outside your room the next morning did put a damper on things. I do appreciate however that they need to do these works. Managed to park outside which...

They even phoned day before arrival to just let me know they has building works on. Honestly a lovely hotel and will remember it if I need to come into bristol again.
