“The second Best Western .. And the last for me !!!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Stayed here for 1 night as a Cpl on 25.10.13, took ages to find someplace to park. then waited a while to check in, although the girl on the desk saw us arriving she left her desk to serve at the bar!! The bar is tiny ... 8 ppl and it would be full, drinks are expensive double vodka & tonic & a double rum & coke £13.00 !! Room 219 smelt damp, bathroom was dirty, glasses had scum in the bottom, there was even a dead bug on the tiles, tiles were in need of some serious grouting, and the floor was dirty... The bed ... I don't think the mattress had any springs in it and was tiny, I think this was a medium bed deffo NOT a double!!! My poor b/f who is 6` had his feet hanging off the bed all night by at least 1` !!! both woke up with aches & pains :( breakfast was so so, some of the staff were a bit standoffish. In all honesty, we couldn't wait to get out of this hotel... On a whole ...

Room 3/10
Bar 1/10
Bed 0/10

Maybe they want to advertise this place as a cheap & nasty B&B because that's what this place is ... I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!

Room Tip: Go to another hotel !!!

Stayed here for one night in one of the large doubles. Spacious, comfortable and quiet. Not luxury and the decor's a bit tired - it is a 200 year old building I'd have thought and it offers a lot of charm.

Great breakfast and very helpful staff. Ideal for Clifton village. Even has its own parking.

We'd stay here again!

Just stayed for the one night.room was small double with a comfy bed. Appears to be a stud wall to next bedroom, so can hear neighbours talking. Plenty of choice for breakfast, buffet style served in a pleasant dining room. The bonus is that the hotel has a free car park. Would recommend for a short stay.

I stayed here for 10 days on 2 occasions earlier in the year whilst attending a course at Engineers House. The hotel was in a good location for that, about a 10-15 minute walk, and also well placed for restaurants and shops.

I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Plenty to eat at breakfast and Annie was very friendly. It was nice that she remembered us when we stayed the second time. We also used the printing facilities for documents for the course and reception were very accommodating with that.

The rooms I had on both occasions were the large double and I liked them both. I stayed in the annexe the 2nd time, on the top floor and found that to be nice and quiet. My friend stayed in a normal double on the first trip and there is a big difference so if you are staying for more than a few nights and like to have space, go for a large double.

I would use the hotel again.

Not a luxurious most of the Best Weston hotels but still very comfortable. Has a small bar that only sells bottles but a good selection. Rooms were small but comfortable and the beds were a good quality. Restaurant food was simple but tasty and the staff were helpful. The hotel was very handy for the City and local restaurants.

Stayed with a friend in August in a twin room. Room was in the basement and was cozy, with windows looking directly onto parking lot. However, bathroom was a pleasant surprise, as I had been led to expect something tiny and it was actually quite a decent size. Full tub and shower, warming towel rack, plenty of room, big mirror. Breakfast was very nice with plenty of cold and hot choices, and great bacon! Annie our server was very pleasant and helpful. Good location, just a short walk through to Clifton and the bridge, close to restaurants, shops and cafes. Bus stop very close for getting into town and to train station.

Reception staff were polite and helpful. Room was on 3rd floor and 54 stairs up!! Room was small, bathroom very small and shower even smaller and impossible to move in. Breakfast was awful-so much so that I skipped it on second day in favour of a local cafe.
Car park was a plus as was the location close to Clifton Village.

Wouldn't go back to the hotel.
