Great hotel always a good sleep - plenty of little extras free parking / free water / wifi and most of all many smiles from all the staff that work at the Bristol Hotel. I also use the hotel for meetings so conference rooms also good with attentive and supportive team. Overall 9/10

This is a good hotel only a short walk from Bristol Temple Meads train station. I visited for work. The conference facilities were really good and the staff were all very pleasant. Food was okay. Would return again.

Despite two very busy weddings at the weekend all the staff worked hard to give us a good hotel experience. The first evening's meal was beautiful. The salted caramel was amazing. Apparently the sticky toffee pudding was also delicious. And a great breakfast too. Food heaven!

Room not overly big - but nice and comfy. Didn't eat or drink in hotel - appeared really busy with weddings. A huge thank you to the staff on reception on Sunday morning who were trying to help us get home to Inverness when flight had been cancelled. Great professionalism shown when we needed it - THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
