Reviewed yesterday NEW

Upgraded to superior room, which was a nice. Rooms are small, particularly the bathroom. Decor is nice and modern, bed comfy. For a superior room, I've always had robes and water provided but it lacked this touch. Room very very overlooked by office workers and apartments so nothing much to look at. Hotel itself was very nice.

A beautiful end to a lovely weekend.. the piano playing in the background as we nibbled on fresh sandwiches and delicious cakes all washed down with as much tea as you can consume- although we did run out and had to...

The hotel was very well situated in the centre of Bristol and the car parking provision worked very well. The staff were very friendly and efficient and made our stay very pleasant. The room was very clean and had all the facilities one has come to expect from a good hotel.

Great city centre location for a business meeting without the need for great expense. The hotel has a nice bar area with sofas that are not on top of each other allowing privacy for conversations. Car parking is convenient as the hotel is joined to an NCP multi story.

We went to Bristol for one night and booked here as we stayed here last time in Bristol and thought it was good. It is especially good if you arrive with a car as there is a car park right next door to the main entrance in Prince Street and the hotel will give you a ticket to get out...

We arrived at around 1.30pm, a little earlier than the 2pm checking in time. This was no problem except that there was only one receptionist for what was becoming a crowded reception. We had been allocated a Deluxe double bedded room on the 6th floor. Our room overlooked other parts of the hotel but gave a skyline view of the...
