We stayed at the Mercure Brigstow for 2 nights in August 2008. The location is absolutely cracking, and we had a superior river view room which did indeed have great views of the rivers and also across the city - perfect for watching the balloons which flew across from the Bristol International Balloon Festival during our stay!
If driving you can get a car park ticket for the NCP car park next door (£10) - once we'd parked the car there we didn't touch it again until we left! £10 is good value as well, so that was a bonus. The location is excellent, within 5 minutes walk of the main shops and centre, which means finding somewhere nice to eat/ drink isn't difficult.
The hotel was very busy during our stay, but despite this we had very good service throughout. The 'tile TV' in our bathroom wasn't working when we arrived, but maintenance came and fixed this immediately, very impressive! We did have to wait for a table for breakfast on the first morning, about a 20 minute wait, but the waitress was incredibly polite and apologetic, and we were able to lounge on the comfy chairs with complimentary newspapers, so no hardship really. It was worth the wait though, great range of food available for breakfast. And on the second morning there was no wait at all, even better!
Our room was on the top floor, and the view from the balcony was cracking! The room itself was a very good size, nice and spacious and modern. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable, and overall the standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel was excellent. All in all a very good hotel in a great location - a modern, clean city centre hotel which is great for anyone planning a Bristol break!
