Premier Inn Bristol City Centre (King Street) Hotel
Ranked #21 of 39 Hotels in Bristol
Reviewed 7 September 2013

I arrived at Bristol at 10.00pm and although the hotel is clean and very comfortable, there wasn't a restaurant open at 10.30 on a Monday night. This wasn't a fault of the Premier In and the receptionist was very helpfull. But just around the corner is a pub called Royal Navy Volunteer, which kept me happy till closing time and the lovely bed at the Premier Inn meant i overslept. Good nights sleep though.

We stayed at the King's St Premier in after reading reviews on here and we weren't disappointed. We had a nice high room with nice views of the river and the cobbled streets. Not noisy at all - the sound was blocked by the windows. Nice, clean room with a variety of extra pillows. Would have been nice to have a blanket to use to but had air con so I turned it up (to the shock horror of my other half :)). Friendly staff and breakfast was good too. All round good stuff!

Room Tip: Car Park is the NCP and it's a 2 minute walk from the hotel entrance - £20 per day.

As we entered the radius of this hotel we were welcomed by several homeless gentlemen who begged for money and lacked in correct hygiene. We entered the building and glanced over our room before our intended trip to town and were immediately grasped by the fowl stench of what seemed to mirror an old nappy or a piece of excrement. We swiftly called the service and they sprayed our room which was a temporary solution to the issue but this came back with a vengeance upon our return from the Town Centre.

We returned later in the evening to attempt to get a "good nights sleep" (Hastily guaranteed by this franchise) with no prevail. One of many issues we faced was a local karaoke bar which sported Drunken fools who sung extremely poorly and did not cease in this act of sin until the early hours. If this wasn't a large enough problem the view from our room (109) was dreary and could of left the jolliest person with a feel of depression in their heart.

But the view wasn't the issue, it was the fans outside the window which were a persistent issue throughout the night and blared with noise which almost managed to cover the noise of intoxicated louts near by. The air conditioning within the room also failed to work and when the people above us were attempting to walk across the room it almost sounded as if a giant or an elephant was prancing around above us without any care.

After our Forced sleep with little comfort we were arisen by the sound of what seemed to be a pigeon nest. the chorus of vermin were hooting as the mother lead them almost as if this was a orchestra of pests awaiting us as an unexpected and natural alarm.

Our home town isn't full of the most savory characters or buildings yet this nights sleep almost humbled us and made us appreciate what we have. The joy of the return near made me kiss the ground with happiness.

Stayed here for one night for a Granary Club reunion event at end of August '13. Reception very friendly, informative and efficient. Twin room basic, as Premier Inns are, but clean and air con/heating unit to use as appropriate. Room (120) had views of the waterfront which was fab. Didn't have any food here but menu is the same as at all Premier Inns with great choice and value for money. Location perfect for King Street pubs, Queens Square and waterfront restaurants such as the fantastic River Station or the Seven Shed. Usually stay at the wonderful, more premium, Bristol Hotel however lack of availability gave an opportunity to stay at this Premier Inn which met all expectations from previous stays at other PIs. Only negative is that this Premier Inn does not have its own car park, due to very central location, and although the NCP in Charlotte Street is close by there are no discounted rates for guests. Would recommend this hotel for its location and will stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room which has a view of the waterfront

Our second visit. The hotel is in a great location by the canal with a 5 minute walk to the harbourside restaurants and bars and 10 minutes to main shopping centre. Room was clean and comfy. Good breakfast and attentive staff.
All in all well worth the money and would not hesitate to return again.

We just spent 4 nights in Premier Inn Bristol and it was great.
It is very central and a lot of nice pubs around the hotel. Very clean room and friendly and helpful staff. We had a really nice time and would not hesitate to book here again on our next trip to Bristol.

Stayed here for 2 nights in August. Met by friendly reception and fluent in getting our details ready and key. Asked if we needed a hand with baggage and yeah, was friendly.
Room was spacious over-looking the river, large TV, Nespresso machine and kettle.( my colleague had a smaller room and no Nespresso same floor so be aware), however no complaints with my room. Bathroom was a little small but had a great bath / shower combo and probably the best range of bathroom products I've had in a hotel room. These were also changed daily.
Breakfast was good. Cooked breakfast for me is based on quality of sausage and it stepped up to the mark. It's hard to get the rest wrong and they didn't.
Would stay again... however, without aircon in hotter days may be a problem..
