My husband and I stayed here for one night. We had chosen the Radisson as my husband is apart of their loyalty programme and we were down from London to see a show at the Hippodrome and the hotel was conveniently located.
We were going to walk from the train station but it started to rain so we got a taxi for £7 (including tip). If we had walked it would have been about 15 minutes.
The hotel is centrally located and next door to a Sainsbury's, good for water and anything else you need if you don't want to pay hotel prices.
Although I had booked a business room, they upgraded us to a suite on the 17th floor.
The room was large and clean, with a mezzanine level with a living area and second TV. The bed was comfortable and the room also had a proper coffee machine which we used.
The balcony although provided great views of Bristol, was also accessible by all other guests on the same floor as us. As a result we kept our curtains shut quite a bit as our neighbours at one point were walking along the length of it.
The gym area is small for a hotel this size, but as only one other person was using it when I went down at 7am it wasn't a big problem.
The breakfast buffet provided a great selection of cereals, breads and hot food, all very fresh!
The elevators was the hotel's major downfall. One time we used it, we pressed ground floor and then it proceeded to go up and down continuously without going to the ground floor. This happened a few times and would stop at random floors as well.
Overall a good centrally located hotel with pleasant staff.
