Stayed here as part of a weekend visit to Bristol with friends and found the hotel to be excellent value for money. The hotel was ideal as it is located within walking distance to the city centre and its car park at the rear was secure and well priced when compared with other hotel car parks. The room itself was...

Very good location, stayed to visit the Bristol Old Vic Theatre school, very close to the university and to shops and restaurants as well as the city centre. Bathroom light was flickering, so it was a bit annoying to shower, other than that, small comfortable room and friendly staff.

This is a perfect "budget" place for a very convenient, inexpensive overnight stay. It's a classic old-fashioned city hotel with perfectly adequate old rooms that do show their age, but are beautifully clean and tidy and very warm. There was a blanket on my bed, not a duvet! It was perfect for my needs though, even secure parking overnight, and...

We stayed for 2x nights while spending New Year in Bristol. Great location, walkable to the city centre/Watershed. Good value but the whole place needs updating (painting & decorating + new bathrooms). The rooms are comfortable and clean, but small in size. Some have baths (with shower) others have showers only. The reception staff were really nice, pleasant and very...

Stayed overnight to visit Bristol University - hotel is very well located for that purpose. Rooms basic but clean and comfortable. Main negative point is there's no dinner service and nowhere convenient to eat nearby. Breakfast on the other hand was magnificent. Full English plus generous buffet, high quality, friendly waitstaff. Just the thing to set you up for a...

“Would have preferred duvet rather than blankets. Shower jet extremely slow and hardly any pressure. TV remote didn't work - reception did give us new batteries but it was obviously was broken. Hairdryer didn't work either. Just little things - luckily I brought my own hairdryer. Remote no biggie - as really only slept in room for one night. ”
