Near Temple Meads Station on a busy road, but the soundproofing is excellent. Good and secure parking facilities. Rooms clean and very usable and the beds very comfortable. The staff, in particular one of the reception staff (ZOE) were extremely friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast good, though scrambled egg to be avoided. Overall, very good value for money

This hotel is right next to the station and walking distance of the cities facilities. The rooms are functional very clean and the staff...

I stayed here for one night as I needed a stop-off next to Temple Meads Station. Comfortable and clean room, good breakfast and attentive staff. It is a bit isolated from other amenities, such as restaurants, however.

Weekend visit to attend a 40th birthday party and do a bit of sightseeing. Bristol is a BIG city so you should allow plenty of time to get around although many of the top attractions are within walking distance.

Good location by the Station. BUT..Over soft bed, no decent beer in bar just fizzy gassy lager. Bought a cider...which was expensive overpriced...someone making a lot of money there. Staff OK but don't listen. Poor lighting in room too nany small lights which are too dim. Overall expensive for quality of stay.

Stayed here for three nights. It's convenient for both those who have come on train and by car, with a car park round the back of the hotel at £12/night and temple meads station across the road. Our sofa room was basic and decor needed updating but it was sufficient. The shower was weak unfortunately, but it was OK. Noise...
