I chose The Berkeley Square for a one-night stay in Bristol, as it was close to the mayor's Chapel (I had a function to attend). I booked via the phone, and the receptionist was very pleasant...except that when I arrived there there was only one receptionist, who also had to pick up the phone, and check-in took forever. I was also surprised I was made to pay upon arrival (!) and that they did not accept Amex.
The hotel is pleasant overall, with some nice arty touches...but not particularly clean and there is a musty smell (they should really do a good stem clean of all the carpets!). The room was tiny but well appointed. I was annoyed that I could not control the temperature of the room - it got cold in the morning and I did not want to wait for half an hour for someone to turn up.The breakfast was unimpressive, and I was surprised by the"canteen-style" arrangements of the tables - three long rows of tables, as opposed to individual clusters.
Overall an OK stay, but the hotel needs a deep clean! I would not recommend.More
