This hotel provides rather basic accommodation and facilities just 2 minutes from Temple Meads railway station. The staff members were welcoming and helpful. Our room was very clean and had a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was very much on the small side and it was necessary to edge round the door to get in. The room was at the...

First time at this hotel and whilst a little concerned when I arrived, my concerns were soon to be calmed. The hotel is very handy for Temple Meads Station. The surroundings may appear somewhat suspect but the hotel itself is fantastic. The rooms are clean and plumbing and heating are well 'pleasing'...!!! The breakfast and service very good. Overall I...

flew into Bristol airport and caught the very frequent coach service into central Bristol. the stop for Temple Meads railway station is 200 yards from the Holiday Inn. the hotel is also about half a mile from the main shopping precincts and also the river walks and amenities. well placed indeed. A regular bus service runs past the front door...

Stayed here for a catch up with a friend. It's only a couple of minutes walk from Temple Meads station. The twin room was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Breakfast was busy (it's served in the small lobby area) but there was the usual choice of pastries, fruit, cereal and some hot choices. Staff are friendly. It's...

Basic, but good enough for a night before a flight. Close to the city and the train station. Comfortable bed. Breakfast is adequate. Walking distance (10 min) to the main attractions. Compared to others, good value for money.
