Reviewed 24 June 2017

Visited third week in June 2017 in that really hot spell. Had a room on the bottom so was sheltered from the sun until late afternoon. This kept the room fairly cool as no air-conditioning. Luckily we had taken a fan. The room was clean and spacious with tea and coffee provided, although the cups were never changed during the time we stayed; we washed them up.

Breakfast was a buffet and the family which cooked the food were friendly and helpful. We can't praise them highly enough as they made the visit to the hotel enjoyable.

We felt that a lounge area would have been beneficial for visitors to relax in, but as it's mainly for people as a stop-over for the airport and we were staying for five nights, it's probably not on a high priority list. Overall satisfactory but not really holiday accommodation.

Room Tip: Back, bottom rooms which look over scrub land are cooler and we didn't hear noise from the A38 t...

Good position on the A38 not far from Bristol Airport and Bristol City. The overall appearance of the lodge was old fashioned, including the reception, room and breakfast room. The room was clean and very basic. The breakfast was nice with buffet cooked and continental food available. Over priced for what was offered.

Stayed there for an overnight. It's a bit dated but clean and warm. In fact too warm for me. But that's personal preference.
Breakfast was good.
Staff were friendly.
And it was the right price.
I would definitely overnight there again. We didn't use the restaurant

I stayed here for a few nights and found it good value for money. The beds were great and food above average but I thought it was a good deal all in all.
Bad points, small tv and some strange noises in pipes or something but couldn't hear traffic which was great! Staff were very good and helpful and I would happily stay there again.

Overnight stay and park car while away.
Lovely evening meal and a good nights sleep in clean room with comfortable bed. Very good breakfast choice as much as you can eat. Everything you need. Staff very friendly and helpful. Will be back again for sure.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a reasonably priced b&b for an overnight stay near Bristol, and we decided upon the Town and Country Lodge. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and shown to our room, which was up a flight of rusted, rickety metal stairs. The room itself was clean but dated and tired, and felt a bit more like a cheap motel than a supposed three-star hotel. The bathroom was in desperate need of TLC, with the sink chain broken and the plug resting folornly on the side. However, despite the dècor, it was spacious and suited our needs for one evening.
The real disappointment came when we had our evening meal. My food came out stone cold - literally still frozen in the very middle. I'm not usually one for complaints, especially working in hospitality myself, but when you're paying for a meal you want it to be worth the expense. The lovely man serving us apologised and returned the food to the kitchen for reheating. When it came back to us the cheese on top was greasy (I was mopping oil off with a napkin), but was at least at an edible temperature.
Breakfast, by contrast, was lovely: a broad variety of hot and cold options, plus lots of choice for drinks.
Neither of us slept well due to the rock-solid mattress, but that could be down to personal preference.
Overall for a one-night stay the Lodge was sufficient, but am unsure price reflects the quality of the visit.

Needed to stay the night somewhere before flying out from the airport the next morning. Very basic amenities, bathroom the best bit! Husband and kids very unhappy with the hard bed, and no-one got a good nights sleep. Wake up call fine, left the hotel just before 5am, and the person on duty was informed that we had no hot water in the shower, however it all seemed to come out of the taps in the basin instead! (both taps).
Meal the evening before was good and wholesome. Wifi coverage intermittent.
I did ring a couple of nights before arriving to check on the breakfast situation, but we decided to forgo this option. Whilst we paid for breakfast, we did not get it, and I think that the hotel need to review this situation and include it as an option, or not, when you are booking especially due to some people having to leave at an earlier hour than normal.
