Good room, staff made sofa bed up when asked.
Breakfast was superb, staff were incredibly friendly
Pity about the parabens in the handsoap and shamppo/body wash
Reception staff did not mention free wifi to me at check-in
Very relaxing stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Geoff46300 Did what we needed it to do
We needed a bed for the night to attend the Balloon Fiesta so arrived very late at night and left very early in the morning to catch the 'dawn ascent'. There was nothing wrong with our stay, the room was spacious and clean, we slept very well, parking was 'in the building' , staff did their job where we required it. Hence the review ratings.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sezzy1234 Absolutely dreadful
I booked my stay late in the afternoon on the date of stay. During my journey I received a phonecall TELLING me that they had overbooked and that I would be moving hotels to one the other side of Bristol. I said that this was not acceptable and they reluctantly allowed me to stay at the Holiday Inn.
During my stay I explained that I needed an iron., There was not an available iron. I explained that I needed to iron my suit trousers for an important presentation the following day. They just said that there was nothing they could do.
The bathroom fan stayed on all night, as did 'night lights' in the bedroom and the bathroom. These were clearly visible through the glass bathroom door. The bed was was extremely hard and uncomfortable, despite their website saying they offered soft comfortable beds. The shower was described as power, but it was barely more than a trickle.
Food was excellent and staff in the restaurant were great. This should not be billed as a business hotel. The beds are hard and the reception staff rude. I have relinquished my loyalty card and will not be staying there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KJD500 Spacious room
We enjoyed a two night break here and were very pleased with the size of our room as we were three adults travelling together. Our daughter slept on the sofa bed and had a comfortable night.
Staff were very helpful and polite. Would choose this hotel when visiting Bristol in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MindPie A no-nonsense great stay
Really nice room in what are apparently converted council offices, looking right out over the centre of the city, great breakfast spread, all with really friendly customer service. Just what I needed and a very enjoyable stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by D4vey Overall stay good
On arrival we were given a free drinks vouchers and on request got a executive suite upgrade which was all very nice and welcome.
Hotel very clean and tidy
The only disappointing thing was although this room had just been cleaned and it was an executive suite the curtain rail was hanging from the ceiling which the staff was not aware of.
Maintenance where informed but they did not repair but only closed the curtains as we complained that the rail was unsafe to pull the curtains

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wide berth Appreciated the smile and a warm welcome after a long journey
Exactly as expected, clean, comfortable, quiet. The central location is ideal for visiting the waterfront and Cabot circus shopping centre.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lornaww amazingly difficult to communicate with staff
Location is easy excellent.
Rooms very modern.
Verbal communication with the reception staff is terribly difficult.
I had a group booking which I had spoken to staff over the phone about extensively however it was still booked incorrectly - which lead to the booking costing me more than it . The staff on reception seemed incapable of rectifying the mistake.
Additionally I found the staff on the phone rude.
I will not be staying here again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Trinity17 Awful Stay, Noisy Room and Unfriendly Staff
Although the rooms were modern, they needed a bit of DIY. The metal cover covering all the eletric was hanging off, the pillows were aweful and the room was very noisy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Glen88 Sofa Bed
The King Size bed was really comfortable but unfortunately as there were three people in the very spacious room the sofa bed was really uncomfortable. Mattress very thin and you could feel the metal through it. Would have been nice if there had been a memory foam bed. Okay for a child but not for an adult. Sorry

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave the Marxist Best of Bristol's hotels
We have been to a few hotels in Bristol and this one is head and shoulders above the rest. Room was light and comfortable and bed superb. We ate out but the breakfast was exceptional. NCP car park next door is subsidised by the hotel (£10 for 24 hours). Staff very attentive. We shall be back!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pollyanna53 Not the room I booked
The hotel is centrally placed but a little inconvenient because it's beside a very busy roundabout and you need to use an underpass to walk to the nearby streets. Staff were generally very friendly and tried to be helpful, however our main problem was that we booked a twin room but were given a double. When we asked to be moved we were told no twin rooms were available, and that in fact we had been given an upgrade since the sofa in our room was a sofabed! This doesn't count as an upgrade, I'm afraid, especially not for the person who has to sleep on the thin, lumpy, uneven sofa bed mattress. The member of staff at reception said he would get it made up but by 9 pm it still wasn't, so he came and did it himself. Seeing how uncomfortable the mattress was, he went and got another duvet and laid it on top of the mattress. That had to do us for the three night stay - just not good enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris 37 Relaxing stay, great hotel, great location
For a weekend away this hotel is perfectly located and because the facilities are extremely good it's an ideal place to stay. The standard of service and the quality of the food is better than you'd really expect and the rooms are very modern and comfortable.
A thoroughly enjoyable stay!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by canuckister Great staff, Better structural maintenance req'd
On my first night, the air conditioning on the entire third floor had failed and fans were brought in to cool the room (to limited effect). However, the front desk was great with helping me out throughout my stay, including switching rooms the next day at short notice.
Jamie at reception was particularly helpful and deserved a big thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hotelman01 Super Service aber ein Zimmermangel
Der Service und die Mitarbeiter im Haus sind beispielhaft und es war sehr sngenehm Gast in diesem Hotel zu sein, Danke!!!
Ein wirklicher Mangel ist die Tatsache, dass die Fenster sich im Zimmer überhaupt nicht öffenen lassen. Sicherheitsaspelte hin oder ger, aber ist das noch zeitgemäß???
Dadurch riecht es im Zimmer und besonders aus den Schränken kommt ein uangenehmer Geruch, aber das liegt alleinig daran, dass sich die Fenster nicht öffnen lassen

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mannie68 Bristol
The hotel is very central to Bristol and in a great location, the only problems at present are that 2 of the lifts are currently out of action and you have to either wait ages for a lift to arrive or walk up the 2 flights of stairs to reception then wait even longer for a lift. The other problem is parking it's a multi story car park which means that if you can not get a car parking space on the ground floor you have to drive and find one the walk down with luggage to the hotel
