good location

Coming down to bristol for 2 days next week and looking for a nice hotel that is handy for restaurants/ bars . We will only be in the city late evening both days and will be looking for somewhere to eat and drink . Don't really want to have to get taxis so need somewhere in an area that would be safe enough in the evening. Any advice much appreciated.

There's a City Inn and a Holiday Inn Express near the main railway station, about a quarter mile from the centre.

We used to enjoy staying in Jury's - literally on the quayside, you walk across the footbridge from the Hotel and there are a load of bars and restaurants within a couple of minutes.

Hey

There is a Travel Inn on the St James Barton Roundabout in central Bristol, as well as a brand new Ibis Hotel on the Harbourside. The Ibis is right near all the bars and restaurants.

Have a good time!

In my opinion the 2 best located hotels are the Ibis at millennium square or the premier travel inn on welsh back, both are right near the nightlife and reasonable prices.

The Travel Inn at 'Welsh Back' would certainly be a good choice particularly if on a budget. Another hotel, almost adjacent but certainly upmarket is The Brigstow Hotel. It address is No 1 Welsh Back. You can find it under www.fullershotels.com. Its a great location, quite quiet just around the corner from King St, which is a cobbled area and has the Old Vic theatre in it plus a good number of bars/restaurants including The Llandoger Trow and the 'world famous' jazz pub - The Old Duke.

The hotel is located directly on the waterfront with a floating restaurant just along the quayside - The Glassboat, quite posh and a bit pricey. The actual city centre is a 5 minute walk away, Bristol Temple Meads train station is 10 minutes walk.

I personally would avoid the Travel Inn at St James Barton roundabout, never been in the hotel, but the location is very busy with traffic and not the best location to go to restaurants etc. It is however next door to the bus station and directly opposite the main Broadmead shopping area, a lot of which is currently being rebuilt....!

Many thanks for all the suggestions. We ended up at the City Inn - possibly not the most central hotel, but fine . We did see the Ibis right in the centre and wished we had booked in there. Anyway , had a great time - good food and lots of beers . Cheers
