I stayed at this hotel for 5 days while on business in the area. The hotel came with a reasonable price (~104 GBP / night incld breakfast) and a great central location (<5min walk from Temple Meads).
Check in was a breeze. I asked for a room on an upper floor (just because upper floors are generally quieter) and was accommodated. My room looked towards the back of the hotel , and was very quiet.
The Daily breakfast has a great variety and should suit anyones needs. They offer a range of cold cereals, fruit, mead, cheese, breads, croissants, muffins, eggs, sausage, bacon, beans, tomatoes, yogurt and the self-serve waffle machine. You can also have eggs cooked to preference. I had an omelette and the only minor complaint I could make was that they didn't have any options of vegetable to put in it. I'm from Canada and am used to omelettes full of vegetables (peppers, onion, spinach, etc..), I ended up with ham, mushroom & cheese - a very minor inconvenience.
The room was very clean and modern. It featured an iMac in pace of a regular TV which you could use to watch TV, surf the net, or whatever else a mac can do. There was also free wifi throughout the hotel and the reception in my room was fine to video chat back home. The room also had a mini fridge (empty) and a small safe. The shower was hot and water pressure ample.
The hotel also has a small but adequate gym that has a few treadmills, cycles, do-it-all machine and some free-weights. Just fine to stay in shape while on the road. I did not find (mind you I didn't ask either) a pool/steam-room or sauna on site.
Check out was also very simple. Standard checkout time is 12:00pm, I requested a late checkout and was offered 1:00pm. Not a huge difference so I checked out and made use of temporary bag storage while checking out the city a bit on the last day.
There are plenty of amenities well within waling distance of the hotel. Bristol city centre is <10min walk where you can find many restaurants,pubs, etc..
All in all, I have no complaints and would both recommend this hotel and stay there again.
