“Mint Hotel Bristol”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

On the day I arrived the restaurant and bar had not quite opened following a refit and the same applied to the health club. A restaurant had been set up in small conference room, which was deserted when I looked in.

Otherwise the room was very nice, good size and very clean with the added advantage of mac computer/tv. I paid an extra £10 for a club upgrade,this gave me VIP status, although I didn't notice any difference in my status from staying in an any other hotel. I did get fruit in the room and a welcome drink so maybe that was my status upgrade!

The hotel is a 10 min walk to the city centre but if you didnt want to go too far I found a nice italian restaurant immediately across the park at the back of the hotel.

Room Tip: Opposite the park looked like the best option

I stayed at the Mint Hotel in Bristol for one night and was very impressed with the friendly welcome and well appointed room. The free wi-fi was a nice touch (so many big hotels choose to fleece people with that!) as was the iMac in the room. The bedroom was not huge, but it was very pleasant and quiet which was just what was needed.

There was some construction work happening so breakfast was in a different room, but this was carefully explained and the breakfast was a perfectly calm and pleasant experience.

The location is very close to Bristol Temple Meads railway station and the main shopping centre so I highly recommend this hotel for a city visit.

We stayed overnight in the Mint Hotel when we had booked to see a show. Although our room was small, it was modern, spotlessly clean and well-appointed with a safe and refrigerator. The restaurant staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the food was very good. Car parking was £10 per day.There was a bus stop directly outside the hotel and the regular bus service took you to the flourishing Cabot Shopping Centre and harbourside which has a wide choice of restaurants. The railway station is conveniently located a few hundred yards from the hotel We had a rear room on the top floor and never heard any traffic. The lifts were silent and efficient. Agnes the Receptionist was particularly pleasant and very helpful. We visited the fascinating MShed museum on the harbourside which has free admission and enjoyed an outstanding interactive display of the historical development of Bristol and its people. There was a charge to visit the display of fashion photographs on the 3rd floor. Have booked another stay at The Mint Hotel next month although I understand it has just been taken over by the Hilton so I hope it maintains its high standards and customer focus.

Room Tip: Choose a top floor rear room

Nice clean and quite room, with a nice view over the park. Having the apple mac was a bonus and good to have something to play music on whilst getting ready to go out. Not in the most picturesque location but a good option if going out in Bristol as relatively close to everything. Especially good location if you've driven or got the train.
Breakfast was excellent with a really big choice. Although if I was having to pay for it on top of the room (ours was included), I probably would have said it was a little pricey. One word of warning - the bar man may proclaim that he is an amazing cocktail 'mixologist' but he made me the worst cocktail I have ever tasted (he put creme de menthe in a Long Island Iced Tea???) and took about half an hour to make it. My boyfriend also had to talk him through his choice. Meanwhile a table of 3 were still waiting for their beers, which they had ordered before me! Was very frustrating but in hindsight pretty amusing. Somebody tell the boy to stick to what he knows!

The hotel was in the process of being reburbished when we visited, but I can't say this affected our stay. They were rebranding from the Mint hotel to Hilton Gardens on 13.2.12. The rooms were a little on the small side but were more than sufficient, with a comfortable bed, plenty of lighting, an iMac, plenty of wardrobe space and an iron and ironing board. The bathrooms were new and clean with rainshowers. They are a little on the small side, so you may struggle if you are on the larger side. The car park was open air and had about 50 car parking spaces and was well lit. For busy times when you can't get in the hotels own car park, there is an open air NCP next door - also openair. The hotel was in a good location for us, about a 10 minute walk to the bars and restaurants at the harbourside, probably slightly further to the shopping area. It was quiet at night, so you were not kept awake by revellers in the street. Extremely friendly and helpful staff.

Great hotel with really helpful and friendly staff. I've stayed here a few times and my last stay was during refurbishment, so was a little bit chaotic but the staff were brilliant. Particularly Lucy on reception, Dave at the bar and Paulo in the restaurant. I will definitely stay here again. The rooms are clean and have everything you need.
