Mercure Bristol Brigstow Hotel
Ranked #14 of 39 Hotels in Bristol
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We had two rooms on the 6th floor. 616 and 618. We had booked the Avon river view. But the the trees were so high and being in the end , you could hardly see the river . Rooms are nice and comfortable. It was very hot and realized later that they had only air cooling and not air conditioning. Grocery shop was very very close. Also nice bars too. Train station is about 25 min walk.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with family

Having taken up a special rate from Secret Escapes we had one night at the Brigstow. We found the staff were very helpful and pleasant and the superior room with river views was perfectly adequate although of course this time of year the trees obliterate any views. We did not have dinner there but thought that the breakfast was excellent. The position of the hotel is very convenient with an easy walk to the shops and yet it was very quiet at night. My only grumble would be the cost of car parking which was £15.10 after the 25% discount that the hotel gives. That's expensive!

Stayed at hotel last night for The Pogues concert on the harbourside so very good location. Friendly desk staff, found us a river view room. Room was comfortable, especially the bed and was very quiet.We didn't have breakfast as we thought it was too expensive but didn't actually see what you got for your money. Would definitely recommend the Mercure for exploring the delights of Bristol.

Beautiful Location on the riverside, We stayed for one night as a last minute get away, the room was spacious modern and clean. The bathroom was very impressive, spacious and modern and clean - the best feature was the television in the wall! The hotel was in walking distance of Cabbot Circus and other attractions. The setting was beautiful especially at night! We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant and were pleasantly surprised! The food was delicious and the view was beautiful - really made a romantic night!

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend break for 2 nights. Lovely location on the river. Breakfast was amazing, delicious food and polite staff. Staff was always friendly on reception. The room was spectacular,very comfortable beds. Didn't have to check out until 4pm which was nice so we could make another day of it. Only problem was, when we arrived in our room there was a lot of hair strands in our bed and also in the guest directory and on the table. But overall very nice weekend break. Will definitely come back.

Had a front facing room overlooking the river. The rooms are well laid out, spacious, modern looking and clean.
Bed was very comfortable but annoyingly there were no electrical sockets next to the bed.
Although I never made use of it the bathroom has a unique feature of having a TV screen at the end of the bath.
Good to see more and more hotels are now including wifi at no extra cost and the signal was very good.
Breakfast was in a nice relaxing setting with the usual array of selection.
I decided I would book an extra night but when I asked at reception they said sorry but they were fully booked however on checking on the hotels website they did have vacancies I then mentioned this to the staff who lo and behold told me they did indeed have a vacancy - however there's plenty of choice in Bristol so I moved on.
Overall a nice stay in a primary location.

Room Tip: I'm sure it costs more but a front facing room is nice.
