I've spent quite a few weeks here on and off over the last few weeks, the staff are very helpful, especially the 'breakfast crew'. So polite, attentive but not overbearing, anticipating needs, not minding when I turn up early, offering coffee and toast. Nothing is ever an issue. Highly recommend a stay here.

We had a very pleasant dinner in the restaurant and the food was well presented and tasted good. We were greeted with lots...

I will split the review into staff and the facilities. I stayed in a superior double room and I was pleasantly surprised by the nice size and set up of the room, which looked out onto the waterfront. The breakfast setup was brilliant and I felt that the stay was worth it. The staff at the reception were mechanical, both...

Stayed here circa July 2016 and loved the rooms. The restaurant was very posh and food was great. Gym was very basic for the keen gym goer but didn't phase me much. Staff were always polite and professional.

We enjoyed our two nights stay in Room 531 with a river view. The staff were very polite with the room kept impeccably clean and well serviced. Great location and convenient parking. Would consider staying here again.

What can I say... Lovely welcoming staff. Beautiful room, spotless. Lovely view over the river. The staff had left a balloon and some little cakes because I'd informed them that it was my husbands birthday. This was a lovely touch. I will definitely be staying here again.

We visited Bristol to celebrate a special occasion and booked a Superior King Room at The Bristol. The hotel is well located in the centre of Bristol and the staff were efficient and polite. The room (432) was clean and the bed was comfortable, however despite paying for a Superior King Room the room the room was far from 'superior'....

You can pay about £60 to stay a Saturday night in Bristol (Ramada, Hilton Express etc etc) or you can pay £120 on the expectation of some quality at the Bristol Hotel.... I would save yourself £60 and a whole load of disappointment. Reception staff were surly to a man (and woman) particularly the overly assertive Northern Irish trainee. He...
