    The river view room is very excellent

    Very good

    The hotel has an excellent, central location, was very comfortable and although central, was in a very peaceful area.

  • 8.8
    Great

    The rooms were spacious, great views - book a riverview room. The breakfast was very good. Staff were friendly and efficient. The Glass boat restaurant opposite the hotel does cheap early evening meals - v. good.

    The lift was broken for most of our stay. It does seem to have happened before at this hotel. Not great when you are on the 5th floor.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The hotel was modern, stylish and comfortable. It is in a central location, close to shops and restaurants.

    When we arrived our bathroom in our room hadn't been cleaned properly. We complained and the maid came back in to do it again but it was still dirty. We complained to reception staff who handled it very well and moved us to a different room. Parking was an issue, the hotel does not have private parking for patrons so we had to park in an ncp car park behind the hotel, even with the hotel discount this was still expensive!

    Perfect

    An excellent place to stay in Bristol for any visit. Great location, and all the staff we dealt with were efficient, friendly and courteous. My wife and I will definitely return at some time in the near future. Highly recommended.

    Perfect

    Very helpful staff we arrived the night before my friends wedding, got there late I forgot my toothbrush and my friend her charger yet it seemed nothing was too much to ask with the staff they sorted us out with both and even threw in a complimentary breakfast for the bride to be. Brilliant decor and facilities, I would go again

    Had an excellent view, with windows on two sides, overlooking the water. Comfortable room and brilliant location close to plenty of shops, restaurants and bars.

    Perfect

    The hotel has an ordinary exterior, but is smart amd modern inside. It is well situated on the harbour waterside, within easy walking distance of the main shopping centres, and of many of the cities main entertainment centres, yet it is relatively quiet, because it is set in a small backwater.

    Parking in the nearby multi-storey car park, is dear! The hotel staff did offer help as to how to combat this, but that was a complex exercise!

    It is a smart hotel, well situated on the harbour waterside and within easy walking distance of the main shopping centres and many of the main City entertainment centres, yet, it is relatively quiet, because it is set in a small backwater.

    The nearby car parking is too dear - £19 for 24 hours. - Not the £13 quoted when I booked!! The hotel staff were helpful in suggesting how I could minimise this, but that was a complex exercise.

    Perfect

    The Hotel was fantastic, staff were very friendly and allowed us an additional hour in our room while we waited for our train. Excellent Value and overlooking the river room. Would definately go back/recommend

    I would just comment that drinks were a little on the steep price wise
