Can't knock it
Service courteous throughout. Room clean with fruit, tea & coffee. On top floor (3rd if I remember), I was not disturbed by the bar terrace. You need go no further than downstairs to wine & dine, but can find alternatives within 20 mins walk. Corridors look dated, but that gives it a 'Faulty Towers' charm. Nice hilltop location out of town centre bustle. Frequent buses to town only 2 Km away. All said, a nice city break for a singleton.
A great pad from which to explore Bristol
A basic no-nonsense stay, quiet, convenient location, everything provided with no problems. About 2 miles from town centre, Clifton is a tranquil urban area with scenic period houses & a vibrant main road. I never waited more than 3 mins for a bus to town centre, although the walk is refreshing. Breakfast is available in English, continental & healthy versions. Staff are very efficient & courteous. It's no Hilton, but it's perfectly clean & functional.
The ethos of Bristol is to keep it's originality & not become another clone town. It even has it's own currency, to keep the money in the community. It would be nice if this hotel were to employ local cleaners, to blend with this ethic.
The location of the hotel.
The hotel was very noisy with people banging the corridor doors in the middle of the night and drunk people singing in the corridors. The maintenance of the rooms was very poor. However, location of hotel was great.
Good size rooms
Far too hot in the rooms with limited temperature control
Location in bristol
I went to the Hotel to relax away from the presures of daily life. And found there was a wine bar/ cafe directly below my room which kept me awake.
Loved the decor and layout of basement area and coffee bar on ground floor
Shower room needed some renovation.Hallways a bit tatty
Nothing to mention. Unfortunately this hotel left only unpleasant memories.
The personnel behaved inappropriately, were highly unhelpful and unwelcoming. The room that was given had not been properly prepared for stay - the light was missing, the water stopper too, the door handle was barely fixed on its place. Only some of these problems were fixed after repeated requests. Not a single question about getting around Bristol was answered. The hotel boasts too much on its website - and this did not correspond to the reality of the room I stayed in.
Very helpful staff
the room was fairly small - OK for a one night stay - not sure about longer.
For a one nighter it was clean and comfortable and the staff were excellent.
comfortable, clean, fresh fruit
parking was tricky.
Reliable broadband access
The restaurant being open to the public meant there were a large number of loud, drunk individuals present when I was trying to eat and work in the restaurant area
Very nice work staff
bed to hard . shower to slippery. water to cold whilst showering
