My wife and I visit Bristol every December for a couple of days Christmas shopping without the kids and this was our first stay at this hotel. The hotel looks a bit ropey from the outside but once you step in you are in a lovely modern hotel. The booking in process was fine and were provided with a couple of sumptuous warm cookies. Our room (230) was a little small but had everything we needed with a lovely bathroom and amazing shower, even if the shower was a little cold on the Tuesday morning. On the Sunday afternoon after arrival we sat in the bar whilst I watched the football and ordered a couple of hot chocolates, for £3 the least you expect is quite a large mug and for it to be a "hot" chocolate not a drink you can gulp down in two gulps. On the Monday evening we had been to the cinema at Cabot Circus which is only a 10-15 minute walk, unfortunately it was pouring down with rain and we were soaked (obviously not the hotels fault) but when we got back both our key cards wouldn't work so I had to make my way back to the reception to get them reactivated which was annoying as all I wanted to do was dry off. Upon leaving today we couldn't get out of the car park as my previously stamped ticket wouldn't work so I had to go back to reception to get that sorted. Whilst I was there a couple were checking in and were told about the free WiFi with no password and were also offered a complimentary newspaper, both of which my wife and I were not told about. We would like to make this hotel our base for all future visits to Bristol as it's easier to get to with on site parking and is close to all the amenities, but I would need convincing....maybe a tin of those cookies in the post would help me on my way.
