The best thing about this hotel has to be the location. The hotel itself is a typical Ibis with fairly basic but spacious rooms. This one though is in a mainly pedestrianized area so is very quiet and is a mere 5 minute walk to the harbour, which is full of bars and restaurants. We didn’t even bother having breakfast at the hotel as there are so many restaurants and cafes in the area. It was more fun trying a different one out each day. We can personally recommend the Severn Shed’s eggs benedict – delicious! The car park over the way from the hotel is convenient but at £12.50 a day (after hotel reduction) it works out quite pricey if you’re there for any length of time. We found the Wapping Wharf car park, a 10 minute walk from the hotel and only £7 a day or £28 maximum for a week. Book the hotel through the Ibis website more than 30 days in advance and your time away could, like ours, become a truly bargain break.
The only negative would have to be the really poor choice of tv channels. If you’re travelling alone then make sure your computer is internet tv enabled or take a good book. There were less than 10 channels to choose from – it was like going back to pre-digital days. Other than that we would highly recommend the hotel as a perfect base for exploring Bristol.
