We have stayed here several times - twice with children in connecting rooms and several times as a couple, without children - and we've all loved it every time.
The beds are huge and comfortable, the monsoon showers are fantastic (even my soap dodging 7 year old likes them) and the bar area is great for meeting friends or romantic drinks. The sofa area is dark and cosy and it could be any time of day once you're in there, which is what you want when you're away with your husband / partner / lover.
I've just looked at their website though and the prices seem to have gone up enormously - I've never paid £330 for a standard room and neither would I think it worth that tbh but I've been happy to pay around £200 (or more for 2 rooms that connect).
The parking situation is a pain - if you're lucky enough to get one of the hotel spaces outside (we were last time we stayed) then do NOT move your car again if you can help it, they're like gold dust. Otherwise it's over the road in the NCP, which is fine really.
The hotel is within walking distance of Cabot Circus, the docks, Park Street and central Bristol so the location is good and the good double glazing means you can't hear anything despite being right in the centre of Bristol.
I'm not sure if they do room service, I seem to remember that HDV only does in some hotels and that's a bit of a pain really, they ought to.
We'll almost certainly go again but only on a Laterooms or similar deal - for £330 I can stay at One Aldwych and if I was spending that kind of money that's probably where I'd go.
