First the good things, which were very good. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The hotel is very welt situated for exploring the centre of Bristol, within walking distance of everything you would want to see. The rooms were crisp and clean and also very quiet. Our room was blessed with wonderful views over the city and surrounding countryside: I imagine the higher the floor the better the views: although one does not spend a huge amount of time in the room the amazing vista is a great start to the day.... as is the breakfast: fairly standard fare but good quality food.
Then the bad bits: the hotel only has 8 parking spaces: the mechanism of finding out that these existed is hidden somewhere on the web site. Radisson informs that there is parking available locally: they even give a 25% discount which is worth having as 25% of nearly £20 for overnight parking is worth having. The parking is a complete rip off, hence the advice not to bring your cars. The car park is run by NCP who seem to specialise in legalised theft.
The other moan is the lifts. 17 floors and only two quite small lifts: not realy going to get an award for hotel design here and I suppose not much you can do about it, but he waiting for lifts is tedious
