Excellent location, opposite the road from the train station and a 10 minute walk from the city centre. Clean rooms and comfortable beds! Strange noises in rooms though (pipes?), if you're a light sleeper.

Dear Bourdain_ftw, Thank you for spending some time writing a review. I am pleased to read that our location was convenient for your travelling needs, as you mentioned just in front of Temple Meads station, bus stops and a 10 minute walk to the city center. I will investigate the issue you mentioned to see what the issue could be,...

I always travel late in the day when on business so staying at the hotel literally 2 minutes from Temple Meads was ideal. All of the city centre is pretty much accessible within a 10 minute walk. The continental breakfast is also good and included in the price

The hotel is just outside Bristol Temple Meads station, about a 4-5 min walk. It is not exactly a new property but it is well maintained and refurbished. Decent size room, got twin beds instead of preferred double. Comfortable, well heated room so no complaints there. Breakfast was the usual as well. The hotel is within walking distance of some...

Between the budget to mid-range hotel this is excellently situated close to the mainline station and harbour. Rooms are clean and comfortable, staff helpful,and effecient and the the included in the price breakfast is of a good standard. Unless you are looking for a higher end hotel the Holiday Inn Express is very good value

We chose this hotel because one of us has mobility problems and it was directly opposite the railway station in Bristol. There was also lift access to the reception area, avoiding a short flight of steps. The road between the hotel and the railway station is very noisy (the main route for ambulances with sirens and lights on their way...

Dear Joby2000, Thank you so much for your review of our hotel.  It is always great to read reviews from guests who have experienced the hotel previously.
