I spent a long weekend at the Royal and had a very good time there. The room was comfortable - I had a lower ground floor room which I was dubious about, but actually it was fine with plenty of natural light from the big windows. The room was fine and the bed very comfortable with a choice of pillows. Unlike some hotels, everything you might need was there without needing to ask - iron, ironing board, hairdryer - there was even a fridge.
The reception staff were very helpful and kind, and did their best to help out with my slightly unusual request to post parcels home.
I also made use of the leisure facilities and had a treatment in the spa, which was very good. All facilities are clean and comfortable. My only slight complaint is that there is no access from the Lower Ground Floor bedrooms to the pool and spa - which is also on the lower ground floor. The staff area separates these two areas. So in other words, you have to go up to the ground floor, to a different set of stairs, and then go back down again.
My only other gripe is the extortionate costs to access wifi - £6 per hour or £15 per day! This is ridiculous.
Despite this, I would definitely recommend this hotel and if I would use it again next time I am in Bristol.
