“A lovely overnight stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

We stayed here for one night whilst visiting Bath Christmas Market, we found it excellent value for money, the room was spacious and clean and the breakfast was lovely with a good selection to suit all tastes. I would most certainly recommend staying here.

I travelled to Bristol for a short business meeting and stayed here for two a total of nights, a very annoying two nights.

As other reviewers have stated the place is very tired looking but I could of gotten over that if it were not for all the rest of the factors that made the stay a complete chore.
The place has completely useless internet that disconnected every couple of minutes, whatever package they bought from their internet provider must be the cheapest because it is lousy.

If you need to use the internet for work reasons, dont stay here.

And then the stupidest thing I have ever come across when staying in a place, they decided to paint the toilet when I went out for my meeting!!!

I came back from my meeting to the cleaner telling me I cant go up to my room because they are painting it, Painting my room I asked incredulously? To which I was told "just painting the toilet"
The room was small enough, so painting their dinghy toilet stunk up the bedroom.
Who the hell thinks its a good idea to paint a room whilst a guest is staying there?
"Lets choke the guests, what a great idea"

The place is a bloody joke, as I already said, dont stay here.... dont waste your money.

Compared to the last place I stayed in Bristol at a slightly cheaper price this was poor. Tiny room, too much furniture, bins not emptied, and smell of smoke in the bathroom, broken curtains.. Kind owners and welcoming but very shabby and not worth the money I paid sadly. If it had been cheaper then ok as a stopover but I needed a space to do work and it wasn't really very spacious! The towels and bed linen were clean and the carpet was fine. Breakfast was fine.

We stayed for one night in September 2013. This hotel is fine for a stopover. The Hotel was right on the A4 only a few minutes by car from the temple meads area of Bristol.
The host was pleasant. There was parking at the back of the Hotel. The parking was limited but was on a quiet residential street so we managed to find parking just down the road a few yards away.
The room was comfortable. The bed was also very comfortable. The room was tired with small areas of the wallpaper that were peeling and could have done with a lick of paint. The bathroom was serviceable but there was black mould in the shower and also on the window frame in the bedroom. The room we had was at the front of the Hotel and I hadn't realised how much traffic went past throughout the night but the room was double glazed so this helped to muffle out alot of the noise, when the window wasn't open.
The dining area was very nicely laid out and the breakfast was excellent, very nicely cooked and plentiful.

The hotel is fine as a base or an overnight stopover. It is in need of some TLC and updating. That said, the room was comfortable and quiet even though we faced the main road. Breakfast was good and staff are very pleasant. As a budget location, it met my needs.

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.
