This hotel was lovely - well worth the money. Lovely big room with super comfy beds and a great bathroom (I don't know why that's so important but it is!). Other friends had a very expensive suite which was lovely too - and they were treated extra nice - very personalised service - for their price (unsure how I feel about that!)

The bar staff were super slow - I think she was new, but it wasnt great to have to wait a good 15 mins for the staff to make 2 simples drinks (longer for cocktails)

Great hotel overall though

What a lovely hotel, calming with nooks and crannies to sit and relax. Excellent receptionists, one especially went out of her way to chat to my elderley mother for some time about the show we were seeing. Very comfortable rooms and excellent location for the Hippodrome which is right opposite. Airy dining room and everything you could want for breakfast. Didn't have dinner there but the menu looked variable and appetizing. Will be going back if I have a chance. A bit more expensive than some other hotels but well worth it for us.

Room Tip: We had a high floor which gives you spectacular views as there are floor to ceiling windows in the r...

Many reviewers have said this already but DO opt for a higher floor.I was allocated a room on the first at the front just above a busy bus stop with a lot of noise not only of frequent busses but also passers by.
Good breakfast choice but rare are the places that serve a hot buffet breakfast that is really hot.This is no exception.
Rooms are extremely comfortable...complimentary soft drinks in the mini bar,free wifi and a high level of furnishings.
Very good location too.Would I return?...probably but would certainly request a high level room next time around.

Just returned from my nephews stag do having spent Friday and Saturday Night(11th and 12th May 2012) in the Radisson Blu Hotel Bristol.
What a first class hotel the rooms were clean and bright and were crammed with extras ie fridge tea and coffee facilities and the like.
The beds were really comfortable and soft.
The hotel restaurant and bar were spotless good food and full English Breakfast.
Bar was well stocked(until we emptied it well there were 20 of us Guys.)
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Four Star it should be Five Star right in the centre of all the nightlife.
Cant fault it fully recommend this hotel if you are staying in or near Bristol.

I stayed in this hotel for a weekend break, on arrival I was greeted by a warm welcome, and given all the information I required. The room was very clean, and well equipped. The bar and restaurant was very good. I also had breakfast and can say it was one if the highest quality I have had anywhere.

Room Tip: If you can get a room or suite on the front, high up will give great views of bristol.

We arrived on a Friday evening after a long delay driving though Bristol. Checked in and were given room 105. We got to the room to find it dark, cold and noisy (overlooking a busy street), so both tried to close the window. We mentioned it to reception on the way out, as we thought there was a problem with the window. We came back after a walk to be told the noise was normal, but we could move rooms if we wished.

We agreed to be moved to an 8th floor room, being assured it would be quieter, and lighter. We opened the door to find ceiling to floor windows....with no view! Virtually the whole window was blocked by some structure on the roof next door - we had about a foot to view the roof of the next door building and beyond.

You may ask why we didn't ask to move again. Well apart from the fact we were only staying one night, BOTH lifts were out of use, so all staff and guests had to use the service lift. Plus there was only ever one receptionist.

We had booked direct, assuming this would give us better service so were paying full rates..

Breakfast was OK, fruit etc v good but most of the buffet was warm or less, I couldn't eat cold poached eggs and bacon.

The bedroom and bathroom were very comfortable, just a shame the hotel didn't match.

On checking out there was no credit card connection and we were told we had to leave them with the £180 charge they had taken on check in, although the total cost was only £100. Oh and again, a queue for the one receptionist.

Room Tip: Refuse room 105 and room 809 without even looking. If the lifts are working when you see your room d...

Please accept my most sincere apologies for the problem’s that you experienced whilst staying within the hotel; it is certainly not indicative of the usual level of service we offer and something that has been addressed in the most serious nature. I agree that the problems experienced with our lifts is completely inexcusable and please take my personal reassurances that I’m doing everything within my power to get this issue resolved as a priority.

Thank You and best regards
