I booked this as a treat for my partner's birthday. They were offering a Summer Promotion on their website and when I rang the central booking number they said it wasn't available in Bristol, but I then rang the hotel itself and they were able to offer a deal, a bit more than advertise on the website, but still a good deal. So I would recommend ringing the hotel direct and not the national number.
We were impressed with the hotel overall although there were a few issues which has prevented me putting five stars.
The positives were:
* Fantastic restaurant which caters well for vegetarians and meat eaters alike.
* Excellent service in restaurant.
* Luxurious bathroom which is bigger than many hotel rooms I've stayed in!
* Easy access to Bristol city centre, e.g. Hippodrome and Waterfront.
* A beautiful building.
Downsides however where:
* The bedside lamps were very dusty
* The paintwork in our room (Taylor) was a bit tatty
* It was quite noisy at night as there seemed to be a lorry delivering near by.
* One of the receptionists (think she was french), was not too friendly. (Although the other man was lovely).
* There is no car park but they did have money off the nearest ncp, but I was not informed this either on the website or when booking, so would have used this facility if i'd known.
These are quite minor things I know, but when you're paying a lot for a 4* treat you do expect everything to be perfect.
However the icing on the cake which made the visit was having breakfast the next day and in walks Bill Bailey, followed by Nick Knowles! So it's obviously where the stars hang out.
Overall a lovely hotel and fantastic restaurant.
