It's pricey for sure, for one night plus breakfast. But the friendliest of staff; location; convenient parking; decor; lovely smellies in the bathroom; epic shower; and oh my word that breakfast!!! Shame the mattress was on its last legs and we got a teeny bed too. But we always feel welcome and special when we come here. Which is why...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, it's in a great location and the staff are friendly. We booked a Superior Double Room facing the harbour which we felt was worth the extra cost, as the room was fantastic. The room was clean and well presented, similar to the hotel as a whole. The showers are great too! Parking...

The Bristol hotel was very comfortable. We were especially impressed with the comfort of the bed. It was great to have a bath to relax in. The staff were all helpful and very professional. You can't beat this hotel for the location. It is on the waterfront with fantastic views, but still very quiet at the weekend. I requested a...

I stayed here with my partner on 18th Feb. Overall we enjoyed our stay, hotel was in the perfect location and accessible to bars and restaurants. Parking was only £5 for the night which is decent for the city centre. The biggest issue was how small the room was, which admittedly we had read about in the reviews before staying,...

A last minute decision meant that we were going to be having a night out in Bristol, so we obviously needed somewhere to stay, and having stayed here last year on business, I knew that it was excellently located for the nightlife in a Bristol and also convenient and good value parking (£5) in the NCP car park next door....

Right from the off you can tell if a place is going to be nice. Walking inside we realised this was a nice hotel and it didn't disappoint. Right on the river close to many amenities and the night time scene. The rooms are very clean and nice to stay in. The corridors and public toilets are just the same....

Hampered by a 6hr journey thanks to hurricane Doris I turned up in a bad mood, reception staff were fine but nothing more (asked for any local pubs playing music but they didn't know, not their fault but could have googled the area for me) Went to the room questioning why it commanded the room rate until I fell into...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, it's in a great location and the staff are friendly. We chose a room facing the harbour which can be a little noisy from the clubs and bars on the opposite site but that didn't bother us. The room was clean and well presented, similar to the hotel as a whole. The...

Can't speak highly enough of this hotel. The staff go out of their way to be helpful, pillows exquisite, most comfortable bed and cleanliness is exceptional. I've stayed at most hotels in Bristol on business but this is,by far, the best value for money-especially if you request the parking.
