The hotel is lovely, great location, pleasant staff but the noise coming from the local businesses is irritating to say the least. As a business man I work hard during the day then look forward to a relaxing evening in my hotel room.

Just as I nodded off a huge Sainsbury’s lorry arrived at 23:20…..trying to sleep while that racket is going on is almost impossible. I had to wait until midnight for the delivery to finish then the whole thing started again at 6:00am when another delivery arrived!

If you are looking for a nice hotel the Raddison Blu is for you, if you are looking for a peaceful stay I’d suggest finding somewhere else.

Thank you very much for the review.
This is the first review where noise from deliveries at night have been sited and we have taken this very seriously, I have contacted the council to find out what are the licensing laws and how this can be stopped, unfortunately we do not have control over our neighbours but rest assured we will stop this.

Thank you again and please do give us another chance I believe this was really a one off.

Stayed overnight here for a friend's birthday in Bristol. Very centrally located. We had a corner room with views over the waterfront and up Park Street to Cabot Tower and the University building. Magical view at night.
Room well appointed but, like a lot of hotel rooms, gloomy at night. Why is there only good lighting in the bathrooms? No hotel every heard of dimmer switches?!
Breakfast good with plenty of variety. Staff very accommodating.
Parking is a problem. They do have a car park under the hotel, which is where I thought I had established our car would be parked. When busy, cars are parked off-site entailing a 20-30 minute delay in retrieving the vehicle. If you are 3rd or 4th in the queue, the wait is much longer.
Valet parking at the Radisson Blu would appear to be a 'work in progress'
If we had known of the delay we would have parked in the nearest NCP, minutes away.
The hotel were very understanding when I complained and refunded the car park fee, but they do need to sort this out.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room for twin-aspect views.

Stayed here for a night at the end of October and overall it was fine. The check in service was friendly and prompt and because the hotel is on lots of floors we were given a choice of whether we wanted to stay on a lower floor. We opted for a lower floor and were given a room on the fifth floor, which was ok with us. The receptionist also asked us whether we needed a map of the city or whether we needed directions anywhere. Although one of us knew Bristol well this is still a nice touch. The room itself was a decent size, clean, and furnished in a modern, contemporary style. The location was the reason why we chose to stay at this hotel as it's very convenient for Central Bristol. We went to a gig at the O2 academy which was about a five minute walk away, along with the good choice of restaurants and bars nearby. Also, getting here from Bristol Temple Meads station wasn't an expensive cab ride - under a fiver at be start of rush hour n the afternoon and a few pounds back there the next day during g late morning. St. Nicholas Market is a short walk away and this was good for a browse around before we left. There's also a supermarket a few doors down from the hotel, but we got some breakfast at the market which has some good food stalls. I would have scored this hotel four stars but my only complaint is that I was kept awake by the air conditioning unit which was a bit noisy in our room, but I'd still recommend this as a good hotel to stay for this area of the city.

Stayed: October 2013, travelled as a couple

This hotel is very good if you want a reasonably priced and reasonably appointed hotel on Bristol waterside.

There lots of restaurants and bars around but on the other sside of the water, so they don't effect your sleep.

Highly recommended for weekends away or business.

During my stay everything was right. I fully recommend this hotel. Free wifi and good breakfast and well located (close to the Harbourside). The Airportbus stops close to here.
Special mention to the people working there (reception and restaurant).
