We booked into this hotel, went to the room and promptly checked out again. Others reviews have mentioned this but there were clearly a number of large and quite boisterous / well oiled parties at the hotel... fine if you happen to be with one but not exactly a quiet and relaxing experience.
The so-called "superior" room was dire. It was meant to have a view of the Clifton Bridge which was only possibly by craning your neck at an oblique angle through dirty windows. The room itself looked like we had entered a 1970's time warp - the facilities were "budget" and may have been provided by B&Q. This is not a top quality establishment. To their credit the front desk accepted our "no thanks" but did inquire the reasons. This hotel is fine for large/boozy parties but not for a quiet relaxed stay. For much less than the £130 asking price we relocated to the Bristol Marriot Royal which was far superior, more relaxing and much less expensive.
