Great hotel in a perfect location everything within walking distance. Lovely clean room the bed was a little to soft for my liking but had lovely fresh linen and was beautiful decorated would definitely stay again. Parking was only £5 for 24hrs so happy with that. Overall lovely stay!

Beautiful hotel, perfect location, great staff. The food was fantastic. we would recommend it to anyone. Unfortunately the weather was extremely cold while we were there and we had to use extra heating in the day which was rather noisy.

Stayed for special birthday treat. Couple of nights mid-week. Great location, NCP parking adjoining hotel. Check with reception & you won't pay 'standard' prices. We left car there Tues-Thurs am & paid £5 total for the parking. All the floors seem to have direct access to the car park-so would suggest that if there is more than one of you-one...

I stayed at the Bristol Hotel last weekend (3/2/17- 5/2/17). It is in a great location from where most shopping, dining and drinking places were walkable. The staff were absolutely lovely, very friendly and smiley! The room was a decent size and the bed was extremely comfortable. Bathroom was a bit on the small side and needs a bit of...

We booked this hotel based on the TripAdvisor reviews and I was not disappointed. We were given an upgrade to a deluxe room as it was our anniversary, the room was smaller than other deluxe rooms we've stayed in but it was lovely with good quality fittings. The bathroom was also small but very nice. The reception staff were brilliant...

Really good quality hotel. Breakfast was good value for money. Staff very friendly and helpful. Bar a little overpriced. Good central location, hop on the number 73 bus from station and drops you off outside hotel.

Problems resolved without hesitation. The Hotel Manager Mark Payne was truly amazing. Any issue we had was dealt with politely and efficiently and it was a pleasure to be a guest in a very busy hotel and feel that we were not just another couple but people who were important to all the staff. Thank you.

Not a particularly attractive hotel and a little dated, smallish rooms tiny bathrooms, but constrained by the style of building so they make the best of what they have. Staff were lovely and afternoon tea was great. Buffet breakfast was ok, rather dried up eggs, but this seems to be true of most buffet breakfasts. Thought the bed was uncomfortable,...
