Stayed 2 nights for the Balloon Fiesta. Great hotel, it was a pleasure to find a real hotel. Bed, pillows and duvet were spot on. The restaurant was very pleasant overlooking the river. Menu was good - not one of those massive menus when you know everything must come out of a bag and arrive on your plate via the deep fat fryer! The restaurant manager was very friendly, helpful and informative. Food was lovely and well presented. It's not cheap but as always you get what you pay for - if cheap and mediocre traditional pub fare is what you prefer then there are many options just on the opposite side of the river. It was our first trip to Bristol and we were very impressed. So many things to do and so many places to go in either wet or dry conditions. Just 2 comments - well done The Bristol - for all of the above and in addition free parking in the car park connected to the hotel is a real winner and money saver. Secondly the pink chairs in the bar area could do with reupholstering. We look forward to returning.
