A4 Hotel
Ranked #31 of 50 Bristol B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 August 2013 via mobile

My room was clean, (dust on the window sill) the location was very good for Briatol town centre. Lots of supermarkets and shops close by. The hotel is tired but I would stay there again. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was great.

Very very poor...room 2 is in dire need of a good clean..and refurb....shower full of black mould, toilet seat loose, smell coming.from plug hole.Carpet really dirty...lampshades on. Bedside tables all crushed bulbs too big for the shades.
Looked like someone had spat on one of the walls...thick dirt and grime around switch for shower.
Headboard on bed filthy still had hair stuck to it.dirty dusty imatation flowers in fire grate.
Dirty cracked cups on sticky tray.
Worst of all was the overpowering smell of rancid cooking fat..that lingered through the house..the noise on the A4 was the least of our worries..but that was like sleeping on the motorway , because we had to have the window open because of the smell and the very warm weather.
Was not greeted in a very friendly manner, was not shown to the room.
Breakfast was warmed up in a microwave...it was not cooked fresh...he wasn't in the kichen long enough , and we heard the ping of the microwave.
Had a strange infact very rude phone call the night before we arrived asking ..how much did my wife quote you to stay here ..very weird..and rude...would not recommend the A4 hotel to anyone..what made it even more sad was the fact were in Bristol to attend family funeral...

We stayed here while visiting friends in Bristol and also because we were going into Bath. Our room was large with plenty of light. The owner was friendly and helpful. There is free parking and wi-fi which is another reason why we chose this hotel. Good for the price.

Very welcoming host, small but comfortable room. Apart from the heat being on full blast in the heat wave! The breakfast on both mornings was great, big and tasty! He also remembered my vegetarian requests on the second morning and cooked my eggs to my liking. The only downfall to this hotel was the distance from town, it's a long walk! But if you don't mind that the hotel was good overall.

Stayed here two nights 17th & 18th May and found the owner welcoming, relaxed and very helpful when I asked for directions.
I was given a room at the back so that there wouldn't be a problem with traffic noise although sitting in the dining room having breakfast this was hardly noticeable.
My room was warm, comfortable and very clean with tv and tea/coffee making. The en-suite bathroom was totally adequate and again very clean. Breakfast was wonderful, cereal then a full English with toast, very nice - set me up for the day.
I will be returning to Bristol later in the year and hope I can get a room at the A4

Stayed here for a night, it was comfortable although with rather small rooms, the price reflects this though. The free WiFi didn't have a password in the room and the owner was nowhere to be seen to ask, so make sure you ask on check in.

Would I stay again, yes definitely.
