We booked three rooms here on line at a discount price of £69 per room including breakfast. Excellent value for money at that price! Rack rate was around £160 per room so shop around before booking. Although looked like a standard 1970s Novotel outside, the reception area was impressively cool and spacious. Reception efficient and friendly. Rooms were of good size although bathrooms were a bit small - but at the price ................... ! Airconditioning in our room was not very cold but the other tow rooms were colder so I think we were just unlucky with that. Good quiet rooms. No city noise at all. Car park is underground, 1.95 height restriction. Spaces fairly easy to get into (I drive a Landcruiser) for an underground carpark. Lift to reception area. £10 parking charge for 24hrs was fair.

Breakfast included in rate was good. Usual buffet style hot and cold items. Set you up for the day. Plates cleared promptly, good selection of teas, buffet kept replenished. Generally very good value all round - try it!

I stayed at this hotel with my husband for a mid week break away from kids! The hotel is very conveniently placed for all attractions and the staff were very friendly (although as they were all non english and didn't seem to know the area they weren't able to give any advice on the best places to eat etc.). The rooms were very clean but extremely bland and identikit. The bed was very hard and the pillows like bullets!

On the plus side the breakfast was very good and varied. The bacon was well cooked (just how I like it) and the selection of fruit etc good.

I felt the hotel was a bit overpriced and lacked any nice touches in the room which I would expect with a 4 star. Overall - good if a little bland!

The hotel provided what we expect from a Novotel. Staff was friendly and helpful, though there was some confusion about payment for our booking (we had prepaid online from a travel site). Everything was sorted out by the time we checked out. The location was convenient for our day's activity in Bristol.

I stayed here for work and it was a brilliant choice. Less than five minutes easy walk (even with a suitcase!) from Bristol Temple Meads train station and about ten minutes, if that, into the main shopping area and city centre.

The room was clean and I could not fault the service. I ordered room service for breakfast and one evening meal and these were great, I was especially impressed with dinner presentation. An excellent choice for a business trip or even a city break. Great value too for a decent four star hotel.

we stayed 2 days midweek..well located for shopping/sightseeing.Bus stop outside..to get into city..but we walked as not that far.Only 10mins walk to rail station.bus to Bath 5 min walk.Hotel room clean..bedding & towels all fine.As we only use hotel for breakfast & to sleep..being clean is main criteria as well as being central.
The breakfast is good from choice point of view..the only trouble we had was both mornings some of the cereals had run out by the time we got to restaurant..9.00am & we had to ask for more..also the fresh fruit..their only seemed to be two waitress's..so had to wait around for them to replace...the cooked food was nice but not that hot ..as seemed to be left out too long..fried eggs hard.we were still satisfied with what we had & kept us going for most of the day!we ate out for other meals..so dont know what the dinner was like.
Desk staff were very pleasant..we checked in @ 11.30am & our room was ready for us.All the Novotel hotel rooms seem to be the same..very functional..deigned with business people in mind..there is tea/coffee making facilities..flat screen tv..gym...no pool @ this one.Room was quiet& the sun didnt get round to our side of building till later in day..so not too hot!as room didnt seem to be air conditioned..can part open windows though.Would use again.

We were extremely pleased with the hotel. At the rate we had booked the price/performance ratio was unbeatable. Location is very easy to reach by car yet close enough to the city centre to walk. Staff ws very friendly and helpful and no waiting times at check-in or check-out.
Breakfast buffet had a large selection and there was plenty of space in the restaurant to find a table for the 6 of us every morning.
Although the hotel is on a busy street, the windows are very well soundproofed.

Overall this is highly recommended.
