Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GordonRH Good night's sleep but chaos at breakfast
Rooms are comfortable and generally well sound proofed from other guests, although some road noise in rooms in the front of the hotel. Fairly impersonal hotel but reception staff are friendly as are waiting staff. However very disappointed on recent trips with breakfast. Restaurant has been understaffed with tables left uncleared, buffet not restocked and no offer of coffee at the table (machine available but long queue and slow). This is letting the hotel down. As a frequent guest, I would also appreciate a wider choice of healthier food in the room service menu. I'd rather eat in the hotel but often have to go out to find healthy options.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by green yodler A bed...and that's about it.
A twin room was booked, a double room was given. We were told a double sofa bed would be provided but it wasn't. There wasn't a toilet brush provided and the person I stayed with unfortunately needed to unblock the loo using the rubbish bag from the room. The shower didn't work and there was only a hand shower provided. When coming back to the hotel late on Saturday night my key card wouldn't let me in and I had to wait for the concierge to come down and let me in. When I got back to my room my key card wouldn't let me in and I had to wake up my friend I was staying with to let me in...I didn't eat at the hotel so couldn't comment on that. I slept okay in the bed. I was granted an additional hour to check out when requested so that was good. Based on my experience I would not recommend or stay at the holiday inn Bristol city centre again.

Great hotel in great location with brilliant parking arrangement which meant we could come and go as we pleased but never paid more than £10 per day for parking.
Right next to Cabot Circus and the rest of this great city is a short walk or drive away. Thanks for everyone at the Holiday Inn for making it such a great weekend!

I choose this hotel when I need to stay over in Bristol, this time it happened to be on a Friday night so once finished with work I was able to relax in the room and chill

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sghbsrh Nice place to stay in downtown Bristol
I have stayed in this hotel twice over the last few months when travelling in Bristol. It enjoys a very good location, within walking distance to the urban shopping centre, almost next door to Bristol bus station, and about 15-20 minutes walk to Bristol Temple Meads Station. Front desk staff here are friendly and staff working in the hotel restaurant are excellent as well. Try to have some food in the hotel since the food here is delicious. It boasts itself as providing the best food in Bristol, which sounds not exaggerating too much based on my two experiences.

Always a pleasure to stay at the Holiday Inn in Bristol, which is by far one of the nicest in the UK.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great hotel - would stay again!
Stayed here for 1 night recently when visiting my daughter who is studying at Bristol University. Had a great time. The room was excellent - spacious and very clean, with a comfortable bed. The hotel is conveniently located in the centre so it was not far to the shops and I was able to leave my car in the hotel car park (only £10 for 24 hours - a bargain!). Staff were very helpful and friendly and I really enjoyed my visit. My only regret is that I was only able to stay one night!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Inspection Girl Great Proximity to Cabot Circus
Great place to stay if you want to shop/eat in Cabot Circus, only 2-3 minutes walk and Debenhams literally across the road. Car Park good value for Bristol and staff were good enough to let me check out early morning and go back in the afternoon to validate my parking ticket so worked out very well for me.
Room was fine, bigger than some city centre hotels i've stayed in, and bed comfy enough, even a docking station for iphone which was good. Not particularly cheap but on a par with most other similar chains but with the added bonus of a cheaper parking rate.
Breakfast well cooked and hot which tends to be unusual, so this was very nice.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Margaret99 Mishaps
Not enough light in the bathroom, wall light not working.
Jacuzzi giving out black slime and black lumps, was only able to have a shallow bath or shower.
Menu Sunday night was not as advertised, Roast chicken - not, roast potatoes warmed up from Sunday lunch, no stuffing, could not be recommended.
Staff very good on trying to rectify the problems.

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..)

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
