Recommended for anyone staying 1-4 nights (I stayed for 3). This hotel is basic but comfortable. It's conveniently located just opposite Bristol Temple Meads Station, which was my principal reason for booking it, as well as my positive experiences with this particular chain of hotels. It's easy to commute to points of interest like Bath, Weston-Super-Mare etc. Likewise, It's only a 15 minute walk into the city centre, and if you need to get to the North of the City (areas like Clifton), you can catch buses outside the railway station (a day ticket cost me £4).
The staff were friendly and efficient. The breakfast was good, and included hot items like sausage, eggs and beans. The rooms were clean and equipped with a TV, hair dryer, telephone, tea & coffee making facilities and a nice en-suite (with a powerful shower, always a plus). My only gripe was that the sound proofing of my room wasn't very good, whilst I couldn't hear traffic, I could hear conversations (word for word) coming from the next room. I did feel a bit awkward, and anxious that I was bothering the gentleman next door with my own conversations.
Quality wise, Expresses tend to be a bit shabbier than their standard Holiday Inn counterparts, because you pay less. Nevertheless, I still found the hotel to be of a good standard (certainly better than your run of the mill travel lodge), and not as run-down as I had initially anticipated.
Overall, I was satisfied with my stay here, it was definitely good value for money and I would definitely consider returning.
