No time to give a lot of detail, but I will say that our stay was excellent.
The hotel were wonderful and the hotel well presented. We would recommend it for anyone visiting the city.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mazza52 Excellent location with spacious room.
This is a lovely hotel in a great location - in the middle of Bristol city. Broadmead shopping centre and Cabot Circus shopping mall are almost opposite. Bus station is a short stroll away, and Bristol Temple Meads station a very short bus ride. We had a lovely spacious room at the front of the hotel - traffic noise very minimal (could hardly hear it) - except for the sirens. Nice large flatscreen TV. Ironing board. Heating and A/C. Glad the in-room wardrobe was not the minimilistic look!!! Would have liked a nice small armchair or two in there to watch the TV - only had an office like swivel chair. Overall recommended.

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. It was brilliantly organised and the dinner and breakfast was great. The staff were friendly especially the chefs! Our only criticism was that the music could of been better. It hasn't put us off and we will be booking again for the next NYE!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Teenerbee Disappointed!
The staff at this hotel were very nice, accommodating and helpful.
Our third room finally had a working bath!
Being woken up at 08:00am on holiday by housekeeping was not amusing!
Buffet breakfast was atrocious! The hot food was tepid at best, sitting under only white light instead of steam trays.
Otherwise, parking was ideal right under the hotel and central for walking around to the shopping centres, river and floating harbour.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BobJa48 The standard I expect and the best hotel breakfast by far
For me this hotel is in the ideal position for central Bristol being within a comfortable walking distance of theatres and leading stores.
The rooms are comfortable without being unnecessarily fussy.
I always look forward to the great breakfast with such a vast choice.
Deals that include breakfast included are particularly good value compared with some competitors.
If you like a hotel with an all round good service and modern comfort without breaking the bank, this one is for you !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Padre Jim The better place to stay
In the course of my work I spend a great deal of my time in Hotels around the Country.
I can say without fear of contradiction that my stay, albeit one night, was the most enjoyable stay I have had anywhere. and it is in my opinion the better place to stay.
Staff were amazing, Professional, Friendly but not intrusive.
My meal in the restuerant was faultless and had I been able to, would have spoken with the chef and staff to thank them personally
If all other Holiday Inns give the same quality of Service as in Bristol I will choose this company as my place to saty wherever I am.
A huge thankyou to the staff for making my stay a most memorable and enjoyable one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike1602 Central and functional
Standard Holiday Inn. Newly built so decor in good state. Central location, but weird layout - reception on 2 nd floor. Staff friendly and helpful.
Can't open any windows so usual Holiday Inn problem of stuffy room or noisy air conditioning and therefore little sleep.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Alette1 Good Hotel but not for us
The hotel was fine, location perfect, staff friendly.
We cancelled 1 night and arrived a day later.
We were very pleased to receive our money back, super services!!
But because of the "concrete" matrasses, we had 2 very bad nights sleep. So despite all the good things and services, we will never come back. (it's a pity..)

Not stayed at this Holiday Inn before but I hope I do again. One of the best I have stayed in (and I have stayed in a few) Great room with all facilities and no complaints whatsoever

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kimi27 Best Hotel we have ever stayed in.
My fiancé and I were very surprised by the quality of the Hotel. It reached all our expectations and above. The staff are very polite and helpful and even allowed us to stay in the car park attached to the Hotel while we went into the town centre, this was after we had to check-out.
Ordered room service and the food was to a very high standard, I would definitely recommend eating at this Hotel.
Slight downfall is the Hotel is next to a busy road heading into Bristol town.
Short distance to the Hippodrome and easy access to the main shopping centre.
Will be returning to this Hotel next year.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rde1308 High on the list of places to stay!
I am a business traveller and stay all over the UK. This hotel rates alongside the best I have stayed in. I look for a good level of service, quiet, but well appointed room, that is close to travel centres. This hotel fits all my criteria. It also provided me with one of the best appointed and comfortable rooms I have ever stayed in.
This was very good value for money. I have no hesitation in recommending this to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsParker Fantastic hotel!!
My husband and I stayed for one night in an executive room. The transition from checkin to checkout was smooth and faultless. The staff on reception were well presented, polite, courteous and nothing was too much trouble. The room itself was immaculate! The shower was divine! Actually the entire hotel was pristine. Definitely will be coming back and recommending this hotel to friends and family. As someone who works in hotels, I cannot rate this place enough. Thankyou for making our stay such a memorable one!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CA10 Lovely Large Room
Had a good overnights stay lovely room and slept well, room was spotless. we booked the breakfast and evening three course meal tariff, after a lovely meal we then found out that we had to pay an additional approx £50.00 on top of what we had already booked to pay for our total stay, because we had chosen from the al a carte menu rather than the set menu which we were never even shown.
It was obvious that there was a lot of trainee staff in the restaurant who wern't quite sure of hotel procedures although still very polite.
Next morning the lady receptionist who was extremely helpful and friendly dealt with our issue about our extra charges and they were removed as they were no fault of our own.
The car parking fee was also removed as a good will gesture because of all the problems with the restaurant bill.
This has been the second time we have stayed at this hotel and although a few problems we would return.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by timotei just too much hassle
when arriving at the hotel at approx. 2300 the guy on reception wouldn't let us in the front door - we were left outside in the cold explaining we had a reservation but he didn't have our names on his list.
eventually he let us in but only when I showed him an email confirmation on my phone
upstairs at reception they confirmed my reservation and allocated me a room
when I got into the room there was water pouring from the ceiling so back down to reception and they re-allocated a smaller room to me as it was the last one in the hotel.
all this made for a very frustrating stay ruining a night out in Bristol

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gwyn8 Good room and facilities
The key system drove us mad. Half the time they didn't work properly. We were part of a large group gathered for a family wedding. We could not access anyone who was on a different level. There didn't seem to be a dedicated first-aider to help with my accident and the first aid box which was produced was woefully inadequate. The accommodation was good and clean

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jaydeees Poor customer service
Stay would have been pleasant except for the reception staff who really could not be bothered to answer or attend to guests, almost as if we were a chore! Upon phoning the hotel en route to ask for directions, we received a rude response in a way that made you feel stupid for calling. This continued throughout the stay, the culprit being a man with a pony tail who was front of house for this hotel. I eventually complained and refused to be served by him!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jonboy27 Friendly service and great accommodation
My wife and I stayed for three nights at this hotel and would definitely recommend it for a leisure break.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful on arrival and nothing was too much for them, whether it was arranging a late night meal for the room after we arrived off a late flight from Scotland at 11pm, or getting us extra tea/coffee and goodies.
We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to the excellent sixth floor suite which gave us some great views of Bristol and plenty of space to lounge around and generally chill out.
When we did eventually head out, the hotel was ideally placed for the city's main partly covered shopping mall, which was handy when the rain came on. The restaurants and shops of Clifton are also only a short bus or taxi ride away.
The hotel has a fresh and clean feel and looks to have been recently refurbished, despite being housed in a partly older building.
The only slight problem was the fiddly lifts, which require a room key to go up or down. This was a problem if you left your key in the room as I did a couple of times!
It's the best hotel that we have stayed in for a while and we would definitely come back if we returned to Bristol.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Celtictraveller2 Nice hotel
Lovely hotel. Very convenient for city centre, with secure parking. Very pleasant lady (Janet) on reception. Will def stay here when next in Bristol. Appreciated priority club floor as a platinum member, but it would have been nice to have bottled water and a morning newspaper as is customary in other holiday inns.

Great for a short break. Good location for walking into the main shopping areas. Lovely large rooms. Facilities include a mini gym, which unfortunately wasn't open at 6:40am even though advertised as being open earlier than that. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Foxylady15 Excellent value
We stayed in the Executive suite for a girlie weekend - the suite and bathroom was like something out of a movie, would definitely go back with hubbie. All staff very pleasant and helpful - especially as we had to be directed by phone, after a horrendous journey!
Brilliant position for the hippodrome and docks area AND for Cabot's and the town centre - all within walking distance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Short comfortable stay
My wife and myself stayed here and it was a lovely relaxing stay. The room was comfortable and had everything you will need. Great value for your money. There where a few snags in the room. A couple of plug sockets looked as though they where hanging off the wall. Also the tap that controlled the heat for the water in the bath/shower came off in my hand so it was difficult to get the correct temp. But overall the bathroom was amazing and the room was very comfortable so this didn't really bother us.
