Stopped over for 2 nights as attending a conference with another staff member at Bristol Zoo. The adjoining NCP has really high sides and is narrow, beware if you have a large car like me ( Land Rover Sport ) The bends have millimeters to spare. The hotel can be reached via the car park but only once you have...

Stayed here again for the second time. We liked it last time and the same standard was upheld this time. The staff are always helpful and pleasant and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Will stay again on our next visit.

We spent a long weekend in Bristol and were fortunate to stay at the Bristol Hotel. The decor and facilities are above the expected but it is the staff who make the Hotel exceptional. The car park conveniently has connecting doors to the bedroom floors. A very enjoyable stay and highly recommended.

We had a fantastic weekend celebrating a family wedding at The Bristol Hotel.. The venue was lovely, the staff were superb with their friendliness and service. The room we stayed in was a family room which was an ample size to cater for my family. We enjoyed a 2 night stay that coincided with a charity run which closed the...

We absolutely love the Bristol Hotel. Everything is always so perfect. Staff are polite and professional, nothing is too much and the rooms are modern and spacious. The breakfast is absolutely amazing as well, as well as the room service and bar food, drinks and cocktails. We have two young kids and travel all over the world in many hotels,...

We stayed here over the Easter weekend and the hotel is mostly great. Our room, which was a superior one with harbour views was dated but comfortable. The view would have been enhanced if the large scale bird poos had been cleaned off, we suspect this is not done often enough! Somewhat noisy at night with the various bars down...

This was the location for an AGM of Cattle Foot Trimmers and it turned out to be a great choice. Good central location but quiet at night, yards from the Waterfront bars and a pleasure to stay at.
