Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for business. The hotel has a really handy secure car park in the city centre and is ideally located directly opposite Bristol Templemead Station. Just a short walk from the best bars and restaurants that Bristol has to offer, you could do a lot worse. Room was well appointed, though the drains in the bathroom were really smelly,...

Pleasantly surprised to note this hotel has been refurbished internally since our previous visit. Although it looks shabby from the outside once inside it is warm and welcoming. Check in was efficient, a plus being we were able to check in early. We were, as requested, allocated a room on the fifth floor overlooking Temple Meads station which is a...

We decided on a long weekend trip to Bristol to also take in Bath. We struggled to get a hotel as most were way overpriced. We decided on this hotel and were pleasantly surprised. It's quite basic as far as decor so if your looking for fashionable, contemporary then this is not the hotel for you. This hotel is spotlessly...

A good mid-range hotel in a good location for rail and bus transport links. Its also a short walk to Bristol City Centre for Restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shopping. Top music venues The Tunnels and The Fleece are 5 and 10 minutes walk away, and there are some great pubs nearby like the Seven Stars, the Cornubia, the Kings Arms,...

I stayed here one night as it's opposite temple meds station. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were a very good standard and clean and tidy. I can not find fault. Bristol city centre is a very short walk too. I Am sure I will use it again.

Perfect location if you need to catch a train or a bus. Not the best holiday inn hotel I had ever experienced. Receptionists were great and friendly. All check in and out procedures were fast and efficient. Breakfast was good too. Do not expect any fitness center or business lounge (printers, computer, etc). free wifi works very well as far...
