Overall a nice, functional place to stay!
Some staff more friendly than others but on the whole
they are helpful and offer prompt service upon
checking in and out.
Food at breakfast is perfectly adequate and the staff ensure
Items never run out.
I will happily return.

This was our 3rd stay in this hotel. Staff are always very welcoming, courteous and helpful. We have stayed in the same room on the 3rd floor on each occasion and it was very comfortable and quiet. The choice of hard or soft pillows on the bed is great. There is also great choice at breakfast time. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kezyog Room ok, shame about unfriendly staff
Room ok, air con/heater very confusing as I was either too hot or cold? Worse of all was unfriendly staff. When did a good morning or a smile take such energy? Well I got neither. Disappointing stay. Would not stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sixtysomethng First visit will not be the last
It was our first visit to Holiday Inn and also to Bristol, found hotel with ease, It was easy to get into Bristol and our families home.
Breakfast was very good , but was over crowded on the sat and sun had job to find table . Only downside was, when we gave key in , counter not busy , but was not even asked if everything was okay and if we'd enjoyed our stay.

we stayed one night (Friday 29th November) - we had booked in advance so had a really good deal - room comfortable & clean - breakfast good quality and plentiful. Reception staff really helpful & offered extra heater for our room as we couldn't quite work heating control - certainly would book again

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ade43 Unknowledgable staff.
Standard of hotel was good, it was clean and welcoming. Room was a good size, all pretty much what you would expect from the chain.
On the downside: the hotel was too far out of town. We asked a member of staff how easy it was to get into town, and which direction was best to take for a night out, she told us either direction was the same distance ( cribs/Cabot) both easy to get to, very unhelpful, and incidentally not that easy to get to it cost us £25.00 in a taxi each way!!!! That was £50.00 we hadn't bargained on!
Also the room was in a very noisy position, the road was incredibly busy ALL night. Overall it was somewhere we wouldn't probably stay in again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jo36 Excellent service, friendly staff, would highly recommend to friends and family
From the moment of arrival the hotel staff were friendly and welcoming. There was an initial problem with the shower head and this was replaced immediately when brought to the attention of Kriss on reception who was a delight to chat to and who shared local knowledge with us that made our stay more enjoyable.
At breakfast the following morning I noticed an elderly female guest who had difficulty with mobility was being extremely well looked after ie 'waited on' by Sam who served her selection from the breakfast buffet.
Kriss and Sam are a credit to your hotel. Their customer service was first class. We will definately use this hotel when visiting Bristol in the future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mannie68 Room keys
I understand that there are always a few problems with keys but in the 3 nights I was there I had to go to the reception every day to get my key re-programmed, I know I was informed that I could of called reception from the telephone next to the lift but after a hard day at work the last thing you need is to get to your room only to find that the key does not work. And if your going to give free internet to all members please make sure it works so that you don't have to wait for up to 1 minute for it to load up, apart from that I can not fault this hotel nor the fantastic staff

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ethel58 Key Cards
Overall stay pleasant but the key cards were a pain in the proverbial..
Constantly failed to work and had to change them frequently, sometimes more than once a day, Holiday Inn need to get this sorted as it detracts from from the overall stay!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worzle23 Convenient location
Web-site directions to hotel not clear
Most difficult hotel in which to gain access - with one-way road systems
Clean comfortable hotel, apart from beds!
Beds too hard - suggest mattress toppers (as in Express hotels in Florida)
Request for extra duvets (to use as toppers) ignored - 2nd request had to be made. Explained that 'foreign' staff did not understand request.
Dirty glass & plate from quick breakfast in room, not removed during 3 night stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Caz48 An Overnight Stay
The room proved to be comfortable and well equipped. All expected facilities were in place and the well designed bathroom a joy to use. The self-service breakfast was exceptionally good - the scrambled egg in particular. It was a nice touch to supply a free Independent newspaper and to be able to watch the News on TV.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Barrister Staff are clones!
I have stayed at this and other hotels in the group on many occasions, what I have started to notice in particular at HI Express Bristol North is that the staff are becoming very robotic bordering on rude. Only one member of staff who is called 'kris' makes an effort to converse with guests. The others don't seem happy to be there; are they getting paid less?

Perfect place to stay for visiting our daughter in Bristol. Hotel was very welcoming, room was compact but comfortable as we were using the sofa bed for our son. The only hotel we found that would accept 3 people sharing 1 room - well done Holiday Inn Express! We were quite late in to breakfast but there was still ample choice and we weren't rushed at all by the staff. Would definitely recommend and would also stay again on our next visit.

Stayed at this hotel many times and always look forward to a comfortable bed. Happy to say I wasn't disappointed this time and was very pleased that in addition to the usually comfortable bed, the room had also recently been redecorated and refurbished.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Welshman5 Great Experience
This was a bit of a difficult booking for us as the original company we booked through went bankrupt and cancelled our booking. Holiday Inn generously honoured the booking at only a slightly increased price and the staff were hugely helpful in trying to resolve the problems that had been caused. I cannot thank them enough for the support we received in clarifying the booking.
As to our stay, the staff were all friendly and helpful, the only complaint we had was that on check out day, whilst being told that check out was at 12, the cleaning staff tried to enter the room five times before we were ready to leave, leaving us feeling like we were being rushed out. We understand that in order to turn around rooms quickly and have them ready for the next guest, that the hotel would prefer guests to leave as early as possible but if the check out time is stated as being 12, guests shouldn't be made to feel like they have to check out at the hotel's convenience.
The room we were allocated was perfect for our needs and the bed was extremely comfortable, the bed linen was immaculate. The bathroom was a nice size and very clean. The breakfast was good, although there was a wait for clean plates and trays when we first arrived down for breakfast, but as we arrived at the busiest time, that is to be expected. It was nice to have a variety of different seating styles for people to sit at during breakfast, from dining tables to smaller coffee tables with comfortable chairs and seats at the bar as well. The food was lovely, which a good variety on offer.
The restaurant with which the hotel shares the carpark with is also well worth a visit, the sausage and mash being divine.
The hotel is near two train stations which offers good access into Bristol and other areas. The hotel appeared to be on several bus routes as well and seemed to have good access to the motorway.
All in all, I would be more than happy to stay here again and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Harryboy Does what it says......
We stayed here for two nights. Fairly easy to find. The car park is shared with the local pub (ok) and can get very busy but we always found a space. The staff are friendly and welcoming. We did find quite noticeable noise ingress at times but we were unfortunate to have a group of "20yr old children" around who had zero consideration for any other guests seemingly. I wouldn't consider that there is a basic design problem as such.
Hi Express now offer a cooked breakfast which is a bonus. We would stay here again.

Everything went well except that my prepaid room wasn't available when I showed up. They had overbooked and therefore sent me for one night to a hotel ten minutes away. Very inconvenient. Still worth the stay, unless that happens again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stew7 Really good staff, good nights sleep
I found that all the staff in this hotel were extremely friendly, the bed was just right and I slept very well. One of the staff, Imogen was really friendly and helpfull, giving me directions, sorting out my taxi's in a quick and efficient way even though she was also looking after the bar including me, reception and conference room all at the same time.
On the other hand the price was too high. I paid more for a standard room than I paid for a high class queen size room in the city.

This is a great Holiday Inn Express in a very convenient business location and easy to reach from the motorway. It has ample free parking. The front desk is manned efficiently. The nearby pub is in walking distance and offers exceptional English food at good prices.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Waynesworld2 Generally good but a couple of niggles
As per the headline, it was good. Very hard to find - the postcode is not listed in my satnav, and its a new one. But we eventually found it. (Would be easier to find at night, as then the neon sign would be on, to aim for!)
Comfortable bed, but I do like a firm mattress (my family found it too firm); tv, drinks area, shower room etc.
2 negative points for me. The plastic access card (to access the room) wouldn't work. I tried 6 times then went back to reception. The girl didn't refresh it (re-program it); she wanted to try it herself. Frustratingly, it opened for her, so she looked down her nose at me and walked away. When we came back after dinner, it took 15 swipes to open the door.
Second, the breakfast was a bit limited. My usual breakfast is coffee in a flask and a banana eaten on the motorway commute ... so I was looking forward to a full English! All they had was stodgy scrambled egg, sausages and beans. What no bacon, mushrooms, tomato?? Boo.
Overall, a good hotel and we would stay again, but a couple of negatives.
