Holiday Inn Express Bristol City Centre
Ranked #19 of 39 Hotels in Bristol
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 August 2017

This hotel is situated next to Temple Meads station, and yet far from train noises. Of course it's on a main road, so I would probably avoid any room under the 3rd floor. Our room was clean and with everything we could possibly need. Tv, hairdryer, courtesy kit, ironing board and whatnot. Among all these things there wasn't any of those stool for luggage, and the power sockets weren't in a comfortable position.
But I found these just small downsides.

The breakfast is very nice! A continental and English buffet with loads of different stuff!
It takes 15-20 mins to walk to the town center, therefore I suggest, for those who come to visit by train, to buy the plusbus alongside the train tickets: totally worth it.

Room Tip: Anything 4th floor

Efficient staff and a hotel just right for its location. A very good phone manner when booking in advance and helpful receptionists, nothing was too much trouble.

The room was clean, tidy and comfortable and most important quiet. As is normal with hotels the aircon' was a challenge.The breakfast was passable and OK.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from any lifts or service rooms.

This hotel is perfect if your visiting Bristol with the Holiday Inn standard being met in every way.

Carparking was £12 a night for cars making a tad expensive and this is also limited so if there is no spaces left you would have to go to another local carpark (they do however give you a suggestion on arrival and there is drop off carparking spaces so you don't have to carry bags a long way). However if travelling by train it's a two minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station which makes it an ideal choice.

We were welcomed on arrival by a friendly male member of staff and this standard continued throughout our visit by all staff members.

Breakfast is similar to all Holiday Inn Express hotels and the food was being topped up regularly even close to the end of service.

Would visit again, the only downsides are the carparking and in the morning (from around 0730) it was a bit noisy outside from work men.

This was my 2nd visit here, the first one being 2012. The same good standards have been maintained with the rooms clean and fresh, a good selection at breakfast and friendly helpful staff. I found the beds very comfortable...mattress not hard but not too soft.

It is right opposite Temple Meads station where a good number of buses stop as well. You can get a daily rover ticket for the buses for £4.

You can walk into the centre within 10 minutes.

Parking is extra and at £12 per day quite an extra expense, but at least there are some reserved spaces for the hotel and the car park is directly behind the hotel. The car park is owned by the council.

Would stay again.
