Stayed for just one night for business and I strongly recommend this hotel. Perfect rooms, wide variety of food for breakfast, friendly staff and great location for the centre and harbourside. Overall, a great experience!

First visit to Bristol - very impressed with the location of the Bristol Hotel on the quayside with bars and things to do only minutes away. Breakfast superb and overlooked the river. Parking in linked carpark and included in price. Food in Grille very good and room perfect. Will certainly come again.

I only stayed for one night on business, but everything was excellent, especially the customer service provided by the staff. The room was very comfortable and the location on Bristol's harbourside is very picturesque - especially when the sun is shining. I will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at The Bristol for a weekend. The position was great, right by the quay. The staff welcome you with a smile and the smiles kept on going. We stayed in room 225 which looked over the quay. The room was lovely and it was well stocked with tea and coffee which is always nice :-) We plan to go back again. Thank you to all the staff

My first stay at The Bristol and I'd stay again. Pleasant staff and a good-sized room, quiet as requested and with all facilities. Bathroom a little small but adequate. Wifi very slow at times is all.

I have visited Bristol many times and stayed in other hotels but I find The Bristol to be the pick of the bunch.
It's in an excellent location - next to the harbour and nightlife but an easy walk to the shopping areas.
The hotel itself is very welcoming with highly appointed bedrooms and public areas. Staff are polite and courteous and in particular, the restaurant staff are excellent.
I would not wish to stay anywhere else in Bristol - highly recommended!

The location of the hotel is excellent but the room was very small and compact.
The bathroom was the smallest that I have ever experienced in a hotel
There was no air conditioning so the room was very hot throughout the night.One of the lifts was not working so always had to wait longer than normal

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback; it is incredibly important to me and my team and crucial as we look to continually improve our service and facilities for our guests.

I am so sorry to hear of your disappointment with your room size, some of our entry level rooms do tend to me more geared towards the single business traveller.

I would welcome the opportunity to discuss all our room options if you would consider us again in future, with your preferences in mind I am very confident we can find a room that will be perfect for you in terms of space and value so please do reach out to me personally to assist with your next Bristol trip.
