“Good location and friendly staff”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We stayed for 2 nights on a visit to see family. the central location was ideal as it was walking distance to the centre and had shops and restaurants on its doorstep. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. We've stayed in several Ibises and this one was modern and fairly new feeling. My only complaint was about the room servicing. When we left to go out for the day at around 10am, there was a bag with fresh towels hanging on the door knob. Assuming we'd missed the servicing, we spoke to reception and told them we were out for the day and could they service the room. On returning at around 5pm, the room hadn't been done.

There were problems with reception and digital dropouts on the TV which they tried to fix but didn't really work, I suspect it wasn't the TV but something else that was causing this.

Breakfast was excellent for the price with fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals and good bread for toasting, not just the average sliced white and brown. The cooked buffet was average but they always ar eeven in 5* hotels as it's not cooked to order and tends to sit around. The coffee machine wasn't great but given the price, it was an excellent breakfast.

The rooms were modern and clean with a 'pod' style bathroom but it had everything we needed.

Dear Jill,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Ibis Brisotl Centre.

However, at the Ibis Bristol Centre you should always find your room to be clean and I was most surprised and disappointed to read that this was not your experience. I assure you that the shortfalls in cleanliness you have described are not at all typical. In view of your comments, expected standards have been reiterated to all housekeeping and reception staff.

I look forward to welcoming you back at the Ibis Bristol Centre.

Kind regards,

Easy checkin, good price, decent rooms good size and clean, good central location making on foot exploring easy, convenient parking in Millennium Square if you don't mind paying the extortionate prices.

Never stayed at an Ibis hotel before and we were pleasantly surprised. Stayed here just the one night for my daughters hen night. would definitely return if only for the great position of the hotel. Breakfast also was excellent, plenty of choice

As ever Ibis are what they are basic clean tidy and great for a quick break away. This Ibis is centrally placed so great for a night or two out in bristol if you dont want the hastle of driving /taxi's. Park the car in the car park and forget it untill you go home ! (Ibis now stamp your car park ticket so you get discount for your stay even better!) Obviously this is not a 5* hotel and as such dont expect all the frills, however we have used this chain a number of times and I must say they do give good service.

This was our first stay at Ibis hotels and we were pleasantly surprised. This hotel is very central and perfect for exploring Bristol's many attractions. The room was nicely decorated with super comfy beds and all the equipment necessary. This hotel has a special arrangement with the Millennium Car Park opposite - park your car and on departure present the ticket to the hotel reception for special discount. Breakfast was approx. £7.50 each.

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor were very quiet.

For what you pay this hotel would take some beating. Great position very clean everywhere and staff very professional. I feel sure other hotels in this chain would be as good at a bargain price. Book it you cannot go wrong.
