My wife and I stayed here on a Christmas market visit. Very good hotel central location for all the shops. Quick check in. Plenty of lifts. Room clean and tidy. Room on 5th floor very quiet. Only negative was the bed was hard.
The hotel is very close to the coach station which was great for us and meant we didn’t have to carry luggage far. IT’s also close to the town centre – during our stay we walked to the Christmas market from the hotel in just a few minutes, and also found a lovely park nearby. The breakfast was lovely and very filling, and we also had dinner in the adjoining Brewers Fayre which was very nice. The room was larger than we were expecting, and the temperature controls were very handy as the weather during our stay was warmer than usual during the day and cold in the evenings.
The staff were friendly and kind, and I can’t think of a single fault during our stay – we would definitely stay again and recommend this hotel to others.
Great location, right in the centre of Bristol and perfect for the shopping centres and Christmas markets. It was a new hotel and the quality of the interior was excellent and the staff service was friendly and very helpful.

Due to this proximity, the rooms are adversely affected by the noise from outside (especially on a Saturday night when the revellers finally went quiet at about 3.30am).

Our room was fine, a little compact but more than adequate. Bed linen was clean and crisp and all the staff we encountered were lovely.

This hotel is in a great location. it’s near to the main Harbourside area with bars and shops nearby and ideal for a short stay.

Bed was comfy and bathroom was ok with a nice shower. The thing that makes this hotel is its boutique style, staff and amazing breakfast. Breakfast menu is concise but with all you would need on there, they also had some specials which are freshly made.

Extras on the counter top which you can help yourselves too. Very central location and only 5 minutes walk to shopping area (and Christmas markets).

There lots of bars in the neighbourhood, as well as the Christmas market next door, which might be noisy in high season, especially if windows are opened but we didn’t notice much noise during the night.

It has an excellent location in the old city and is very handy for the harbour and the bars of nearby King Street. We were upgraded to a King Size room which was hardly that but a decent size and was clean and comfortable, however the TV was unwatchable due to poor reception, a bulb had blown in one of the bedside lights and Wifi was unusable. It was quiet and we slept well but didn’t have breakfast. A good option for an overnight stay in a central location.
