Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by neil0000 nice and functional
Good night's sleep, friendly and helpful staff, clean room and big fluffy white towels! The air conditioning in the rooms (I have stayed in several) is very loud makes strange noises.
Breakfast a bit limited if you want fried - no bacon or fried eggs available. No restaurant as such, but there is a microwave and somewhere to eat a takeaway. Nice pub next door
Overall a pleasant stay - I would recommend it for business but not a romantic getaway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by yedp123 Good location and spotless and modern rooms.
Everything about this hotel was good. The price is a little steep, but so are many hotels in Bristol. The breakfast is basic, but ok for me.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Louyboo Good price but very noisy
Staff friendly on arrival. On entering our room (3rd floor) at around 10pm thought window was open due to level of noise (people chatting outside, cars etc), however I discovered it was actually closed. Our room was positioned near/above the main entrance to the hotel and as a result we were kept up until 3am by the noise of large groups of people coming out of the hotel to smoke chatting/shouting outside. Not a very restful night! Suggest there should be a smoking area away from people's rooms or ensure windows are soundproofed. The noise was horrendous just from a group of people chatting! Would not recommend or stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PaulyKent Good standard HI Express
My second stay at this hotel with Colleagues. Its in an easy to find out of town location with adequate parking. The rooms are of good size and well maintained.
No Restaurant at this hotel but we went to the adjoining pub and had a very pleasant meal at a decent price.
Reception staff here are friendly and helpful.
My only real negative is the breakfast - The 'free' breakfast at HI Expresses seems to be getting steadily worse. On this occasion there was no semi skimmed milk, Weetabix were not actually Weetabix but some cheap cardboard fakes. Poor selection of fruit. There were no Croissants or muffins ("we haven't had a delivery"). Staff seemed to be totally disorganised and I have to agree with other reviewers that taking away the trays is the stupidest idea ever. Am quite sure the only reason for doing this is that on a busy Saturday morning people cant be bothered to queue up for a second or third time (one trip only necessary if you had a tray) so it end up saving Holiday Inn money

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Louis-and-Anna Excellent in all respects
We stayed here for two nights during a visit to our daughter who has just moved to live and work in Bristol. The standard of the accommodation is high and the facilities at the hotel met all our needs perfectly for our particular visit to Bristol. With very good value for money the hotel is modern and well-managed, clean and comfortable. The room we had was just right: well furnished with a very high quality bathroom. We will certainly stay here again on future visits.

The staff at reception were very nice and explained about everything you need to know as a guest eg breakfast times.
The bedrooms were very comfortable and the heating system was very good. Very clean throughout; rooms, car park, reception area and the eating areas.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Yogi71 Basic and Affordable
If it wasn't for the fact that what you mostly want is a good night's sleep and the beds are like planks of wood on springs, then I might think better of these places.
They are clean, decent rooms with all the basics (no bath). The breakfast is a decent buffet selection and it's all very efficient. But if you have noise outside your room at night and the beds are that uncomfortable it kind of clouds your opinion.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joddles Tasha needs a promotion
This was excellent value for money.
I checked in 10 guests at the weekend and all 10 were very impressed with the hotel.
Tasha who works on your front desk is one of your most conscientious and helpful staff members at this hotel.
The day before checking in I had to make some last minute changes which got very confusing. She stayed patient with me and helped me a great deal
Tasha is an asset to your hotel and made my stay all that more enjoyable
The only other comment is that we didn’t have much variety at breakfast. Not much fruit and no bacon
Apart from that it was an overall pleasant stay. Thankyou

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cayo Straightforward, relaxing stay.
Having not stayed at HI-Express Bristol North for a few months, I was pleased at the level of service and recognition at reception.
The rooms are as you expect at HI Express: there's enough space for bags, plenty of space for clothes in hanging area, decent TV. There are no airs and graces to the stay; simple, basic layout room, but provides everything you need.
The recently opened Abbeywood Retail Park across the road offers a range of places to eat, some give loyalty to HI customers - so good benefits there.
I was expecting breakfast as the usual naff sausages, powdered scrambled egg etc, but it was better than I'd experienced at the same hotel before.
The toaster seemed to be set for toast, rather than warm bread - great! (why can't everywhere do this?). Good selection of cereals, and fruit juices tasted like juice, not cordial.
OK, it's self-serve breakfast, there's no gym, but for a relaxing nights stay, it was ideal.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express (Bristol North) last weekend. This was my first experience of a Holiday Inn. I was impressed with the quick and efficient check-in process, the cleanliness and comfort of the room, the quality of the wi-fi-internet connection and the choices on offer at the breakfast buffet (cereals, toast, croissants, sausages, beans, eggs, fresh grapefruit, muffins, bread rolls, cheese, plus a range of drinks).
A Nando's and a Frankie & Benny's within walking distance from the hotel as well as the Fox Den pub next door meant that I was able to eat in three different places each evening. The 20% discount at F&B's was a bonus too.
One thing that really impressed me was the quality of the domestic service. I thought I had left my bed tidy each morning, but it was immaculately made each day during my three-night stay. Do the room staff actually iron the duvet on the bed - it was perfect with no creases! Should I ever visit the Bristol area again I will definitely use the same hotel. Following my visit, I have just made reservations at another Holiday Inn Express hotel, this time in Southampton.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Georgie2646 Basic but nice rooms
The rooms were quite nice, has everything you would expect, telly (no DVD players) comfy bed, very quiet and were cleaned very well. But was very expensive per night, which they explain as supply and demand, but the hotel was half empty. the service from staff were mixed, i waited in a queue to hand in my card to check out, was kept waiting for over 5 minutes even through staff could see me, and then someone behind me pushed forward and went to the desk shouting and got served before me!!! the breakfast was okay, the issue i had with it that i had to keep trying to find someone as they had ran out of milk, ran out of brown bread, ran out of plates, even through there should be someone replacing it. I also felt that i was treated differently to other guests when i complained about this as i am only 20 so they didn't value what i was saying, and didn't value my custom. overall, i didn't have to stay there i wouldn't.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by epv123 Good staff. Nice rooms
Everything was spotlessly clean and the service very good. The only downfall for me was the room was cold. I could not get the central heating to provide any heat. I would still recommend this hotel though. Evening meals could also be thought about. They do a pizza delivery service, but maybe a few other choices and recommendations could be included. The adjacent pub caters for mainly food, but was far to busy on the time I spent there. Although there is ample free parking, the price is still a little high.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kerry673 Friendly service, good value
I stayed at the hotel recently for 2 nights with my teenage daughters (17 & 14) as my daughters were taking part in a fencing competition in a Bath which was only 20/25 minutes away. This hotel served all of our needs ie a family room, breakfast included and close to restaurants and it was the most reasonably priced.
The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful on booking in and when I asked them about the restaurants even offered to ring and book a table. Guests at the hotel even get 20% off at Frankie and Bennies!
The room was very comfortable and clean. It had a double bed and a double sofa bed which was very comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities were also in the room.
Breakfast was good - plenty if cereals and juice, hot drinks, toast, croissants. Hot food was scrambled egg, beans and sausage which was replenished regularly. There was no other hit items but what was offered was more than adequate.
Again, staff very friendly and helpful.
Would definitely recommend this hotel and staff.

Unfortunately the hotel showed that although it's okay normally it fails when it is busy. The lack of topping up of everything at breakfast time was terrible - cups, plates, bread, milk, etc in the end we gave up on two occasions of our 4 day stay and went across the road.
