Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TonyjUK Not brilliant
There was no recognition given for Platinum membership apart from the obligatory letter saying that I was entitled to free wifi, which was available to all guests, regardless of Priority Club membership.
I was told in the morning that the room rate I had booked did not include breakfast and this was also confirmed by reception. Fortunately, I was able to produce the original booking which clearly stated that breakfast was included. No apology was offered, other than 'it was very strange'.
There were several dead flies on the window ledge in the dining room where I had sat at breakfast time. Looked like they had been there a while.
On the plus side, the evening meal was good.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ellaray Free wifi waste of time
We have stayed at this Holiday Inn a number of times in the past and the service is not as good as it was.
Reception staff off hand slow to respond not very helpful apart from one young man who did offer to move us to a disabled room which made it easier for my husband.
We were visiting with friends so spent 4 nights at the Hotel, got the feeling from some staff that this didn't happen very often!!! As after 2 nights keycard stopped working.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by robg1962 Great room and good food
Chose to stay here with reward points as a stop over on way down to Cornwall. Great executive room and food choice and quality at the restaurant was excellent. Would definitely staying here again.
Only issue (as with most hotels) is exorbitant cost of breakfast. We decided to skip this and found a great diner (Ollies) a few miles down the road where are two breakfasts were significantly cheaper than one asking price at the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Terry 80 Breakfast Arrangements
My wife and I have stayed here on many occasions prior to and following flights at Bristol airport. My comments relate to breakfast meal arrangements following an overnight stay after our return from holiday in Italy. There were what appeared to be 2 large parties of overseas guests, possibly German, who were on tour. Nothing wrong with that of course but I question whether, in certain respects the hotel has sufficient capacity to cope with such large numbers, and, at the same time ensure the comfort of guests who have booked individually. We came down for breakfast to find that 2 long tables had been set up and that most of the seats were occupied by members of the touring parties. We did find somewhere to sit but it was not a comfortable experience being in the middle of a rather noisy gathering. Our humour was not improved when we found that choice of cereals was limited as the available supply had already been taken.. I think it not unreasonable to expect cornflakes to be available! My criticisms do not relate to the cooked items which were available. Our feelings were shared by other guests to whom we spoke. Staff were clearly doing their best.. Some means needs to be found to ensure that guests booking privately receive adequate consideration and attention

Ideal location for an early getaway to Bristol Airport. Continental breakfast available form 4:00 am. Good to be in a hotel that was clean and not in need of a make over.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Usually Good but....
This is not the first time I have stayed here and 9/10 times it is excellent. On this occasion, however, my experience in the restaurant was poor; the chicken wings starter was nothing more than bones and gristle whilst the cheese in my salad was either a blue cheese rather than the advertised or it was off. The staff's attitude was pompous and cold throughout and, as a single diner, I was made to feel like an inconvenience. Using the gym, I was disappointed that there was no fan or AC, no water cups and the TV was faulty...maintenance never showed up. HOWEVER, the rooms are excellent and reception/bar staff first class. I hope that this was a glitch as I have never had a bad experience here before and on that basis would continue to recommend it,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roger62 Pleasant experience
Have been staying a couple of days a week for the past 3 - 4 months, have always been met with a smile and professionalism at reception, rooms are comfortable and clean.
The bar menu has changed and is now in my opinion limited and the bar is expensive.
The gym is a welcome addition after a long day.
The hotel is in easy commute to many fine country pubs and superb scenery, also easy reach of the coast.
Overall experience is good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Curro2014 Terrible vegetarian food
Onion soup was acid and was as far from being french onion soup as presumed by the name as possible.
Pasta dish was even worse, bland and the sauce tasted to cheap trasatlantic plane food.
Service was attentive, but they could not make up for the food experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by frank s some parts were good
check in was perfect and a great clean room, service from bar was shocking, a young lad only just old enough to serve drinks and not very well trained, after him asking me if i wanted the bottles opened and him struggling to open them i did it myself, then he asked if i wanted glasses with them. also had to carry our wine from the bar to the garden myself. the same lad served us at dinner and that was also hit and miss. re training would be great for this lad as he was very polite but very inexperienced. night reception on the other hand was a lovely experienced lady who new exactly what she was doing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AJ01 Poor Return Shuttle Service
The return service from Bristol Airport left much to be desired. A call was made to request the Shuttle and a time of 15 mins was quoted. After 25 mins or so from the original contact, a further call was made, to be advised the bus was on its way. It eventually arrived some 10 mins later and it took less than 8 mins to drive from the Airport back to the Hotel.
The actual stay was very good and the staff were very pleasant and helpful.
My party had a meal in the restaurant and two of them felt the main dish was not as they expected. This issue was resolved by the manager at the time, without being asked and to our full satisfaction. Praise must be given for his response.
We would definitely use this hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable bed and excellent service
The Bristol Airport Holiday Inn is a very pleasant place to stay whether overnight before a flight or for a few nights when visiting Bristol. The staff are attentive, the bedrooms comfortable, and landings and hallways light, clean and have a feeling of security. I have stayed there before and will do so again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cherikia Nice staff, great location for early flights
My Mom and I stayed here the night before our flight back to the states at 6 am. Food was great, Staff was helpful, room was clean. The beds were so so and the pillows were non existent. I would highly recommend it if you have travel plans. It's nice they have some breakfast available at 4 am.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gemmah87 A good stop over
We stayed here after a wedding near by, we booked our room online so managed to get it as a massive discounted price compared to the price shown on the reception desk. We did not encounter many staff as we arrived late but the lady upon reception when we checked in was helpful and friendly as was the gentleman night receptionist, I would stay again if I was in the area

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jenius Service and restaurant!
We have stayed here on several occasions before, and after flying. In the past the hotel has been fine. This time we took the offer of Dinner, bed and breakfast. After checking in we were charged for parking the car in the Hotel car park. Surely patrons shouldn't be charged! We booked dinner at 7.30 pm and waited along with other diners who were complaining about how long they had been waiting. A coach party happened to be dining in the other half of the restaurant and during their service, two of the 'chefs' came out carrying food and wearing filthy dirty clothes. I ordered a salad which was at best perfunctory, consisting of large amounts of leaves and not a lot else. Breakfast didn't improve! 8.30 a.m. we found the trays of food lukewarm and stale bacon and despite repeated requests for scrambled eggs, both ourselves and other breakfast takers were still without! All of the above was relayed to the reception desk man on duty who said he would duly pass on our concerns. As yet, 5 days on and we have not heard anything from you. Poor show! but comfy beds.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LOUISE B Good location for Airport
Evening Meals very expensive, poor value for money and not the Gourmet experience as suggested by the menu.
Long wait between courses.
Cutlery not very clean.
Restaurant Staff polite but not attentive had to remind twice for condiments.
Bar prices very high
Patio area outside , seen better days and much too close to the Hotel
Had trouble sleeping as at 2:30 am guests were outside drinking .
Room average , bed and pillows not comfortable.
Windows did not open for fresh air although if they did open it would be even more noisy from the patio area right outside.
Chose this airport because of it's proximity to Bristol Airport and stayed both before and after our flights ..used the shuttle bus and was very impressed by the service .
This hotel lacked attention to detail obvious works are in progress outside and I realise that does not give a totally good impression on arrival , but Patio area at the rear of hotel is quite depressing!!
I stay at many, many hotels and have used most large chains including Crowne Plaza and Holiday inn Express Premier Inn, Hilton etc I have to say that comparing to these ,I think this particular Hotel could be improved by a tidy up in public outside areas and a review of the menu and its prices.
Best thing about Hotel?
Staff very pleasant.

Dinner served on thin metal platter is not good as food gets cold too quickly through conduction of heat into platter instead of food staying hot. Choice of desert menu limited to cold dishes and no hot puddings on offer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by twig Late arrival
We were greeted at 2am and were in our room complete with complementary breakfast vouchers in a couple of minutes. All our requests on booking were met. Only downside was that the coffee at breakfast tasted like petrol and the breakfast choice was very limited-this is a Holiday Inn, not a HI Express, after all.
Everything was clean and well prepared, a good night's sleep and quick check out completed a brief but very satisfactory stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Still Baz Deserving of an opportunity to correct the small issues.
Highly recommend Holiday Inn - the hotel is easy to find, close location to airport with an efficient shuttle service.
small issue with parking facility but this was dealt with in a positive and professional manner. Final bill required adjustments but again this was no problem.
Room cleanliness was excellent, room service excellent - hotel staff and management were exceptional especially when I received a personal phone call from the General Manager on returning home to resolve an issue. Room Rate very competitive.
Utilise this Hotel you will not be disappointed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tricia4321 Convenient for Bristol airport
Good choice if travelling to Bristol airport for an early morning flight. Our room was on the ground floor facing the car park, clean with comfortable beds, and with armchairs to relax and watch tv. Be prepared for staff to be thin on the ground especially at breakfast time at 4.30am where you will have to use your initiative and help yourself, sit where you like etc.
There's a good lounge, leather seating, large TV, bar and food available. Again be prepared to wait, my visit was the 5th May 2014 and I may have been unlucky. There seemed to be a lot of staff around the food counter but I later found out it was a staff appraising as the menu was being changed! There was one staff member, very apologetic, who ran between the bar and the food orders.
I would stay again, however, overall I was satisfied and it is so convenient for the airport.

This is the most welcoming Holiday Inn from the moment you arrive you feel comfortable. There is adequate parking which is always a good start. The front desk staff are friendly and welcoming. The hotel is meticulously clean. The restaurant is superb in terms of service and food. This is good quality food that can be altered to meet dietary needs. I go here for work purposes but I always feel like I'm on holiday! Every member of staff you meet is smiling and helpful - If I was tyhe manager there I would be immensely proud of my team! They are a huge asset to this hotel and make it such a fantastic place to stay.
