This was an anniversary weekend and have to say we were disappointed by our room. I had paid £30 for an upgrade to have a waterfront view after reading other reviews. The room we were allocated had a bathroom too small to get into! I did go to reception and was shown to another room with a slightly larger bathroom. The rooms were generally clean, but grubby and in need of a freshen up. The bed was a linked/zipped together twin. This was on 2nd floor.
If you want a quiet night you are better off at the other end of the hotel. We were opposite ZaZaBazzar and above bar, but we opened windows and enjoyed listening to the music and general city hussle.
Rest of hotel is lovely and very luxurious and their cocktails are highly recommended. Breakfast has something for every taste and all freshly made.
Ideally located in Bristol close to all city centre and waterfront.
Just not the luxurious room we were expecting.
