Good quality hotel, in the heart of Clifton. Close to shops and local attractions. Originally a Georgian Residence on Victoria Square, this hotel offers good sized rooms. Our room was huge, one of the biggest I've ever stayed in. Breakfast was very nice, with a good selection on offer. Ample parking available to the rear of the building. If you...

Agata on reception was just so efficient and lovely. The room was clean and just a great place to stay. It was central to the town, restaurants and the pubs. You can go to Clifton village within minutes where there are many shops, bars and just a lovely atmosphere.

I stay in Bristol several times a year as my son lives here now. The positives; Location is very good. Breakfast was surprisingly good for a buffet style help yourself. Parking on site which is a big bonus as spaces hard to come by in surrounding area. Negatives; Building and room on the tired side, heating in room barely worked....

Close to the Suspension Bridge and Clifton. You can have a good night out in Clifton and roll back here for a good nights sleep. It was very comfortable room with an exceptional large bed. The breakfast was also very enjoyable. My only gripe was the soap was in one of those dispenser on the side of the shower where...

We were attending a wedding at Bristol Grammar School and looking for a good hotel for the night. Good reviews for this one and we can only add to that. Service was good, rooms were clean. We were on the top floor which was a bit of a hike up steep stairs with bags though. Car parking was tight, there...

Stayed here on the 1st and 2nd of October as it was fairly close to the zoo where we were booked to go on the big cat experience (well worth a visit) and the area looked like a nice place with good bars and places to eat nearby and we weren't disappointed. Every pub and restaurant was lovely albeit a...

I stayed at the hotel on business recently for two nights, and although the reception staff and other staff were polite, the female Manager was very abrupt and rude. I won't be returning due to her attitude. She was very curt in her replies and unhelpful when I asked about breakfast times. I felt she almost mocked me when I...

Stayed for 4 nights last week and would definitely go back. We booked directly with the hotel and discussed the best room for us (a quiet room so in annexe on top floor overlooking garden at back). Yes, the stairs are steep if you have exceptionally heavy luggage or mobility problems but we (both pensioners but reasonably fit) had no...

Rated two star but is better than the rating. The building is a bit dated and there are ongoing renovations but we were not adversely affected by this. Reasonably priced, hotels in the UK are NOT cheap, good central location near the Uni of Bristol. Helpful friendly staff , a basic but satisfactory British Breakfast. sausages , bacon hash browns...

I'm there now. I wanted to really like this hotel but two things spoilt it. I was on top floor at front in a single room. Bristol was mega busy so lucky to get in for a sensible price. The shower had almost zero hot water pressure so I had a very refreshing dribble shower. Also there is no double...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Victoria Square Hotel is spread across two gracious Grade II listed buildings situated on a Georgian square in the most sought-after area of Bristol. Join us to experience authentic hospitality in a unique destination. Clifton Village is home to period architecture combining ornate terraces, luscious gardens, and vibrant streets lined with boutique shops and cafés. Whether you like outdoor activities or you lean towards fashion and food trends, Clifton has just the thing for your individual taste. Located near Brunel's iconic Suspension Bridge and Bristol Zoo, just a couple of minutes drive from the centre and with excellent links to Bristol Temple Meads Train Station and Bristol Airport, we are ideal for both business and leisure. We have a first come, first served car park with limited spaces. Parking is charged at £5.00 per day. Since the introduction of parking restrictions to the Clifton area, to park on the local roads you will need a parking permit from the hotel also charged at £5 per day. Free parking is available on Sundays and bank holidays only. Ranging from intimate to spacious and superior, our 41 bedrooms showcase the timeless Victorian elegance of high ceilings and expansive sash windows, most of which enjoy leafy outlooks. We offer home-away-from-home comforts including free Wi-Fi access and tea and coffee making facilities. ... more   less
