We always stay here when in Bristol. It is consistently good. The building is beautiful, the service is slick, dinner is always lovely, fabulous wine (and very knowledgable and helpful sommelier) and such comfortable beds.

This is a beautiful building and the bar and dining room are partcularly splendid. The staff are very well trained and attentive.
Very pleasant comfortable bedroom with a lovely bath and walk-in shower. A great place to re-charge the batteries. There was a bit of noise from other guests retuning late on a busy Saturday night.
The wine list, as you would hope from this chain, is excellent and not too pricey for the quality. The bar staff and sommelliers are outstanding.
I was however, slightly disappointed by the dinner. The presentation and portion of the main course was not very special. I ordered bouillabaisse and although the sauce was very good, there was a solitary prawn and not a lot of fish - the presentation was not particularly inspired either. It was accompanied by cheese on toast that even a high street cafe would have managed. At £18 a portion this was not what I expected.
In contrast, the breakfast was excellent and thoroughly enjoyable. Faultless.
There is very little parking outside although there is a discount with NPC. It still cost me £15, which grates a little! The room wasn't ready until 3 pm (as advertised) but I think that is still a little late in the day.
So, not a particularly cheap venue (even with the package deal booked on-line). Lots of positives (great staff, breakfast, wonderful bar and bedroom). Let down by the rather below-average & disappointing dinner for the price. So, I'll probably try somewhere else next time in Bristol, which is a shame, because it is a lovely building and the main meal was much better on a previous visit.

Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback on your recent stay with us. I can only apologise that you did not find the food up to standard, please be assured that your comments regarding the food will be passed to our head chef as well as our group executive chef for them to review. We are introducing a new Al Fresco menu in May which will showcase some lighter, summer dishes at great value for money, so you may like to try them out at Henley HdV to restore your faith in our menus. Thank you for your time and honesty and I hope we can welcome you back in the future.

Interesting hotel in the centre of Bristol with a very small car park but close to large NCP. Stayed on business for two nights and the food both at breakfast and dinner was superb. My room was huge, clean and interestingly had a pole in the middle of it supporting a ceiling beam. The room was through the bar and into what I thought was a cupboard, which actually turned out to be a door to the lift. Would definitely stay again.

Came to the restaurant here with a group of friends. The food was excellent and it is a beautiful building. There were two things I really objected to as I think they were, well, cheeky. The first thing was that when we arrived and were ordering the staff asked if we'd like some water. We said yes and they brought out bottled water at £3.50 a bottle. They didn't ask if we wanted tap water or mineral water, sparkling or still. That's quite cheeky. Then they only brought us the a la carte menus instead of the set menus too (which are cheaper). Again, cheeky. So it really felt like they were trying to get every penny they could out of us. Really not necessary.

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your recent visit. I will make sure I speak with staff regarding the issues that you brought up, although our Prix Fixe menus is only available in the early evening, so perhaps that was why you were not offered it. I would like to thank you for your comments though and please be assured that I will follow up on them.

Stayed here in the "Harveys Room" for 1 night as part of the Ollie Smith wine tasing event. The hotel is really nice and is upto high spec. Slight limited parking facilities and to get to the rooms you have to walk through the bar and into a small lift but thats just picky really. The Harveys room is wonderful. 50" plasma TV with a balcony (the only one in the hotel) so you can sit outside (although the view of the buildign site across the road is not really the hotels fault). Bathroom with walk in shower is amazing. Only slight thing with the room is that is was very very warm and the air con seemed to make no difference at all. Did mention to the reception on the way out but they did not seem too concerned. The bar facilities are excellent here and the bar staff are so friendly and helpful.

Woudl I stay here again? Well I live in bristol so probably not but for a 1 night treat......... probably
