The hotel, I think, wants to be grand, but in places it is a little tired. In my superior room, the towels were fraying and the bed comforter was actually split and to top it all off there was a really weird smell.
It also has a great location on the side of the water down in the heart of Birstol, but some of the views from the rooms can be pretty bad.
Thankfully I picked up a good deal, as I would have felt bad if I had been asked to pay full price.
