  • Group of friends
    4.6

    Having to pay extra to park & carpark was a pain with all the restrictions & barriers.Car parking should be included in the price. A few of the staff had a bad attitude,which spoilt it for those that were doing their jobs well.Dirty entrance inside & out... needs a referb. My friends first room was very dirty so they were moved to a cleaner room.

  • Single
    3.2

    The staff although untrained and young meant well.

    Small room. Scuffy furniture. No mini bar as promoted. Poor value to money. Noisy hallways and paper thin partitions between rooms. Not 'handicap friendly' at all (I am a handicapped businessman).

  • Couple
    9.2

    The location was excellent, right in the city centre and close to all the shops and bars. The room was spacious and very clean, nicely decorated.

  • Older travelers
    4.2

    Spa facilities were pleasant.

    As my partner and I both work very long hours and were looking forward to a relaxing break, we were extremely disappointed to be placed in a room next to a bunch of girls clearly on a hen weekend.

  • Single
    7.0

    I thought that the interior design of the room was excellent. I especially liked the stable but moveable mirror as this allowed putting on makeup in a good light.

    I did not like the quality of the food in room service. my daughter dislikes kidney and this was not mentioned on the descriptor for the steak pie, neither was bread or ctlery provided with my ploughmans. our original room was so dark we had to ask for a move.

  • Couple
    9.2

    We arrived early for check in and were told our rooms wouldn't be ready until 2.30pm (it states 2pm) which we were fine with and we got lunch in a nearby restaurant. When we returned at 2.30pm, the room still wasn't ready. However, the staff went out of their way to ensure we were looked after which included a complimentary drink in the bar while we waited, an upgrade to a suite and also £50 to spend in the restaurant. What a fantastic start to what could've been very annoying. The hotel itself seems to be in the middle of being updated so the decor/carpets are a bit 'quirky' but it's clean and pretty well looked after. We would definitely go back.

    Car parking was extra (£8.00) although many of the hotels in Bristol have additional parking charges if any at all. Also, be aware that the gym/spa belongs to the health club next door.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Great central location, nice rooms and bar/restaurant areas. Very reasonable car parking charges. Staff were friendly and helpful.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    very easy to access shops and theatres also secure parking but at a cost.

    For the ammount of money we paid the room was small and carpet had red wine spilt on it. After night out when arrived back the bar was closed, this was the first time we have come across this.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Yes, the room was very cold, the air conditioning did not heat the room. The radiator could not be turned on in the room, but I noticed that the radiator in reception worked!

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The room size was very generous. The hotel has a feel of luxury.

    The complimentary toiletries and drinks items were insufficient. There was no brochure/welcome pack in the room with instructions for telephone usage and room service, or hotel facilities etc.

  • Couple
    5.4

    Great central location. Nice hotel and good staff.

    Unfortunately our room was dirty. The staff were v apologetic but didn't clean the room when they said they would. I think this was probably a one-off. Becareful on the rooms though!. We booked a 'double' room for £84.50 but were given a small room with a bed that was definitely not a double. Not sure if that was a one-off or not!... I suspect not.

  • Couple
    10.0

    The health suite facilitys were excellent, staff very friendly and helpful an room clen and comfortable food lovely as well.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    The only thing good about this hotel is the location

    Room wasnt available on check-in when we attempted to check in an hour after the stated time. The lift was broken. The remote control was broken and wasnt replaced when we complained. The service was rubbish and not what I would expect from a 4 star hotel

  • Couple
    4.2

    (1) I paid a supplement for a 'premier' double room but was given a room of only standard quality (I've stayed there before on business so know the difference) overlooking the noisy outside air conditioning plant. I asked for a room change and was given a room of better quality (larger, better bathroom), so clearly the first room was not 'premier'. (2) Upon checkout the clerk tried to charge for parking even though I had already paid this through Booked.net; had to get the original booking out to prove payment and avoid an £8 charge.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The staff were very helpful and friendly. I found the swimming pool and facilities really good. I would have liked more t bags etc in my room. Thanks
