Mollie's Motel & Diner Bristol garners praise for its stylish ambiance and modern amenities, such as cozy beds and state-of-the-art showers, complemented by high-end products like Dyson hairdryers. Its advantageous location offers easy access to local shopping and Bristol, without sacrificing tranquility. The level of service, however, receives mixed reviews, with commendations for staff friendliness contrasting with critiques of occasional slow service. Opinions on value also vary, with some guests lauding the motel's reasonable pricing, while others point to unexpected charges. Cleanliness is consistently celebrated, despite minor upkeep issues flagged by some visitors.

I recently stopped here with my partner for our anniversary trip away. We travel often and have stopped in a LOT of hotels over the years; but this was by far the best one.

The signing for the hotel was very bright and clear, it actually looked American which fitted the American "Motel and Diner" feel. The layout of the reception was so cozy and clean. There were tables in there for you to use your laptop, which a lot of people did. Huge TV in the reception area as well as sofa's, the tables have wireless charging too! The mocktail the worker recommended to me was also lovely.

The staff were so so friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much to ask at all. It's always nice having a friendly face/voice when arriving. They were all so kind throughout our 3 night stay, so thank you.

The rooms were so modern, the wooden affect through out the whole of the hotel was spectacular. The bathroom had a waterfall shower as well as a handheld showerhead. It was so spacious in the shower cubicle, and so relaxing, best shower we've ever used. The hand wash, shampoo and conditioner weren't cheap tacky hotel toiletries, they were all good quality which is rare! The sink was outside of the bathroom, separate from the toilet and shower which was unique, but not an issue. A Dyson hairdryer and GHD straighteners were in the room too!! There was also a 50inch TV in the room that you could connect you phone to and watch TV through it, so so handy.

The bed was the biggest and comfiest bed me and my partner have ever stopped in! Pillows and blankets were so soft to the touch. There wasn't a kettle in the room which I thought would be a burden, but it wasn't. In the corridor, integrated into the wall is a hot water tap and a freezing water tap, all touchscreen and child proof. The only thing that I couldn't figure out was how to turn the heating down in the room, I wasn't able to go below 19°c and the room was quite hot. I'm sure this could be altered if I would've asked though.

Everything about this hotel was amazing. It was located near a shopping centre with endless food places to visit.

I would 100% recommend this Motel and will be planning a future visit early next year!

My first stay at Mollie's during a business trip. Check in was straightforward (pre-paid online), the public areas of the hotel are modern and contemporary with plenty of space for working or relaxing. This decor extended to the rooms which are modern, very well equipped (including Dyson dryer and tongs). The bed was huge and so betting and pillows so very comfortable.

The diner has an American themed dinner and breakfast menu. Food is freshly prepared, well presented and reasonable portion size. The tomato soup was excellent, the mac 'n' cheese hot and plentiful but needed ... more cheese!

Breakfast service was efficient (Ellise was great) and the granola excellent.

My only 2 negatives - breakfast doesn't start until 8am which isn't great for business travellers. Also there is no incentive for hotel users to book there - a discount should be offered on food if using the hotel.

First time guest, we had a four year old and selected the family room with 4 bunk beds. I say bunk beds but they are in built and made of wood, very solid indeed. Very good amenities and value for money at £120 for the night for a well appointed family room in 2022. Everything worked, keys, heating, instant boiling water taps, free wifi etc. We also had breakfast in the morning, excellent quality, clean plates and price reasonable, £2.50 for a latte for example and free filter coffees/teas (about 6 types) in reception for hotel guests. These are more than a motel and what Little Chef could have been. Will be looking for a Mollies again on our next family mini break.

Perfect and everything you need. I stayed here with work and it felt like the hotel itself was a very well organised with all new facilities etc. The rooms are spotless and the most comfortable bed iv stayed in. The room had an extremely modern feel with additional extras like GHDs and Dyson hairdryers. The sink was in a very nice dressing/vanity area rather than the bathroom which is brilliant if you are staying with another in the room. Shower was a very wide rainfall which was lovely.
Unlimited tea and coffee facilities down in the reception lounge. Again all new and moderns and a great vibe. There was cocktails available too

We stayed here twice, and will stay again. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is lots of parking and comfortable, well decorated modern communal spaces.
I would advise booking a ground floor room if you have lots of luggage or don't fancy a flight of stairs or 2 as there is no lift.
Our room was spotlessly clean and well appointed, I liked that the vanity is in the room separate from the bathroom (shower and toilet). On entering the light switches are on the right hand side and are not illuminated in any way and are difficult to distinguish as they are all in a dark brushed brass colour, also difficult at night and could do with some type of guide light. There are some hair curlers and dryer which we did not use or ever would. The bathroom is a shower and toilet and there is space above the toilet to put clothes put a hook would be better.
The beds are very comfortable and the curtains once drawn are nicely black out any light. I like the wood flooring it is so much cleaner than carpet. There is a small wardrobe, it would be more convenient to have a couple of hooks for coats.
We did not get a reminder to book breakfast on the first stay so were disappointed not to have space. On our second stay we had booked breakfast and while waiting to be seated other hotel guests were turned away which is annoying. Maybe a coffee and continental type grab and go breakfast could be provided, maybe offer collection from recption? As breakfast is not included in the rate it is disappointing, maybe a 10% discount for motel guests? The breakfast was good but not great, the portion sizes are very small and the price of the hotel room compared to a good B&B makes Mollies look very expensive, especially in the weekend.
We enjoyed the hot and cool filtered water provided both in the reception area and in each floor, however it does mean a dash out in your pj's for your morning cuppa. 2 luggage holders for small wheeled luggage would be helpful as otherwise you find yourself putting your luggage on the nice chairs provided and then you cannot sit at the table provided. Overall we like Mollies and would stay again. The young man at the desk was very helpful on a couple of occasions and we appreciated his assistance.

Mollie's Motel was really good. Our twin was small, compact but nicely appointed. Great beds and pillows; comfortable. Shower room was lovely and the shower was powerful.
Fresh towels daily and beds made. Dyson hairdryer and ghds were a bonus. Motel was relatively quiet even though it was a weekend, minimal noise & we were located on the ground floor. Good car parking.
Tea and coffee in room but no kettle, didn't like the inconvenience of the 'water station' being at the other end of the corridor, particularly on a morning. No decaf coffee in the hotel wasn't good, need to get up to speed with this. No bottled water available in the hotel, only very expensive cans of water at reception. A bottle in the room would be good. No fridge but we managed.
Male receptionist was not welcoming, negative when we enquired about a dinner reservation, instead of just telling us the availability. It wasn't that busy at all when we actually dined.

The food in the Diner was really good - salmon and buttermilk chicken delicious. Plus the full English breakfast was exceptional; the best I've eaten in a hotel. The hash browns were so fluffy and the poached eggs perfection. Plus had very nice decaf coffee. Service good too.

Will definitely stay again when I'm in the area.

We visited Mollies this past weekend and I am still reminiscing.
My husband and I went on our own (first time child free in 2.5 years) and it was bliss.
Not only were the rooms, diner and motel itself clean and refreshingly retro, the staff were amazing and we spent a while chatting to a number of them.
The chill out areas in the foyer were lovely and relaxing, great coffee too. The outside area will be wonderful in the summer too.
The rooms were clean, well equipped (first time using a Dyson hairdryer) and we loved all the little extras we could do on the app (chat to staff, open the room door, stream Netflix/control the TV etc).
Cant wait to return!

We love the idea of this & the facilities are great in the room (adore the Dyson hairdryer & GHD’s!). The bed was also really comfortable and TV a great size. Toiletries in the shower were lovely. However, the hot water tap in the corridor is a bit annoying to keep going to when you want hot drinks & we only got one milk sachet for the night. On entering the room, it was as if the cleaner had left in a hurry- there was a cloth in the sink & the bathroom bin was on the side of the sink. It gave the impression that the domestic staff have to rush as there were also cobwebs on all of the lights in the room.
We were also a bit gutted with the diner - my partner’s Mac & cheese arrived cold, it was just generally bland. The staff in the diner were lovely but after we paid on the app, we were then approached for payment again on leaving. We chose to cancel breakfast for the next day & go elsewhere.
This place has such amazing potential but needs some fine tuning!

Absolutely blown away after our meal today. Everything was faultless. Our nachos to start were lovely, loads of toppings, very well seasoned and fresh. The cobb salad I had was BEAUTIFUL, the dressing was mixed throughout, there were sprinkles of blue cheese within all the layers, I added chicken which was really well cooked. The cheeseburger was full of cheese, it looked so tasty. The mac and cheese was a delight, loved the crumb on top, strong with cheese and just the right thickness. Chilli fries were great, really flavourful. Service was absolutely spot on! Dean looked after us and he was so attentive, plates were cleared promptly, the bill was brought over without having to request which removed what can always feel like an awkward moment having to ask. Dean was friendly, approachable and chatty, but also gave us the right amount of space to enjoy a family meal together. Our first time visiting and we're already discussing needing to visit again and stay the night. Also a very accessible eating place! Will absolutely return. Big thank you also to the chefs for doing an incredible job, my partner is a head chef so can be really fussy, but he thoroughly enjoyed everything. Highly recommend!

Pretty disappointing overall.

Lovely new facilities but let down by service and staff.

On arrival, staff weren't particularly friendly or welcoming.

Our room was stuffy and windows were locked so couldn't open the entire stay.
The shower gel bottle was completely empty (no one had bothered to check and refill) and we were provided with half a toilet roll for our stay - housekeeping needs to be improved.

They ran out of non-dairy milk during our stay completely.

Diner experience was pretty similar.
My daughter was served raw pancakes. Bill took them 3 attempts to get right with various incorrect bill additions.

All pretty basic flaws that could so easily be corrected with decent staff - they're all very young and the whole place needs someone to take ownership with experience.

We won't be returning any time soon.
