We stayed here on a Saturday night with our chocolate Labrador, Cadbury (Pets welcome at £5 per stay), and found it very good for what it is, a basic hotel in a motorway services. We though that it was very good value. All the rooms have free wi-fi and digital Freeview television. The receptionist was welcoming friendly and efficient. We did have some very noisy neighbours and the night porter had to tell them to keep the noise down on two occasions in the early hours, but on the whole we slept well. The room had en-suite facilities with a bath and a wall-mounted dispenser full of shower/hair gel. We would be happy to stay here again. We didn’t have the optional extra of breakfast which consisted of a continental buffet for about £6. Of course there are the full facilities of the services close by and we had an excellent meal at the popular Priory pub in the village of Portbury which is a mile away.

Staying for work.

Rooms decent, standard stuff for a budget hotel. Some noise from the attached services, but nothing too bad. Though services on the Motorway meant slow traffic and restricted lanes which may also have helped.

Continental breakfast buffet. Basic stuff, cereal, toast and some pastries that soon disappear. No bar or place to relax if in a group is the only downside - stayed elsewhere the following week as a result.

But for a place to sleep the night it does fine, without excelling at anything.

We stayed at this hotel with our 4 year old twins for a 3 night weekend for the purposes of a city break. Staff on arrival and throughout the stay were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Parking was free for all guests although don't forget to input your registration on the computer system otherwise you will be charged. The room itself was spacious for the 4 of us, quiet (even despite the motorway location), clean (and very well cleaned daily), and the beds were extremely comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities were available and well stocked. The room also had little extras like a trouser press and shower gel etc. Our twins slept together on the easily transformed sofa bed and had a great night's sleep also! Breakfast was available in the lobby area for £5.50 each (children were free) although we went to the nearby IKEA and had a very reasonable cooked breakfast there instead. Otherwise, we found the hotel to be easily accessible from the M5 (both directions) and nearby many local attractions such as the zoo and farm park. It was also allowed very easy access to the local Portbury Park and Ride bus service (1 junction away) which cost £2.50 each adult to get to the centre of town (children under 5 free). All in all, it was a thoroughtly enjoyable stay in a lovely city, and the hotel was great value for money bearing in mind we were out exploring for most of the day anyway.

We took advantage of a newspaper offer getting rooms for £10 per night.

Despite the hotel being next the M5, the sound proofing is pretty good in blocking out the noise. The room was clean and tidy plus we had plenty of towels and another two pillows. Free Wi-fi and a decent television plus the usual kettle and bathroom. Each Days Inn we've been too, the bed has been very comfortable - some of the more expensive places could learn a thing or two! The view from the window wasn't great - motorway services but forget that and it doesn't seem too bad. The unusual touch was an aviary on site - never seen one at a Days Inn especially at a motorway services station.

In the reception area, you can have breakfast and use the microwave but instead we ventured out. The receptionists were very polite and the nice touch was that the cleaner left us fresh towels and tea after we had accidentally left the 'do not disturb' sign on the door.

Overall recommended if you're not bothered about accommodation but just want a good nights' sleep and convenient jump-off point to see Bristol and the surrounding area.

This is very much a typical chain hotel, situated on the service area of the M5 near Portbury. Room was pretty standard except for some reason I was given a disabled room with a bathroom that reminded me of a hospital bathroom. Room was very warm when I arrived, but this was easily rectified by turning off the radiator. The hotel is sited right next to the lorry park, which resulted in some noise during the early morning as the lorries were leaving.
There is nowhere near enough to walk to for a pub or restaurant, unless you use the KFC etc at the service station. However about a mile and a half away I found a very good pub/restaurant called the Priory in Portbury, well worth the short drive. In short it's OK for a night if you want something right on the M5, but I think if you ventured a little further afield you'd find something a little better for this sort of price. It was £60 for a single room for the night without breakfast. I was offered buffet breakfast at about £6, which was served in a small dining area in reception. Remember to register your car on a computer in reception to obtain free parking, otherwise you'll pick up a fine from the number plate recognition system.
