          Individual guest reviews

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Friendly Helpful staff, the included breakfast, bus stops nearby so can go have a drink..

            Parking - the shower - lights over the bed too low on wall - TV not in correct position on wall, not adjustable..

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            We were pleasantky surprised at the level of this budget priced hotel - particularly teh excellent breakfast.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Lovely cute, quirky room, very helpful staff.

            Uncomfortable bed, radiator not working in bedroom, breakfast was fried & very oily

          • Family with children
            3.8

            Breakfast was tasty.

            Only a dozen parking spaces were available in back of hotel with inconvenient access. These spaces had to be vacated by 8:30 a.m. so that another business could use them during the day. Floors in bathroom were lumpy because of pipe work which was not set deeply enough into the floor. Walls and carpet in all areas of the building were filthy. Back door of the hotel had broken lock allowing anyone at anytime access into the building.

          • Older travelers
            4.6

            The location was good.

            The room was badly in need of decoration with peeling wallpaper and dirty marks on walls and paintwork. The bed was in need of replacement and very uncomfortable. Breakfast was average

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Clean and comfortable, very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent value for money with filter coffee, hot chocolate and fruit in your room. Lovely breakfast.

            Although very comfortable, the room and bathroom were a little small and felt cramped.

          • Single
            7.8

            The location of the hotel in the Clifton area and not far from the City centre makes it an ideal place for visiting Bristol at a price which is reasonable. The room was fine for a short stay and had a good supply of tea,coffee and fruit

            I thought the hotel was looking a little tired in certain areas, especially the shared bathrooms and toilets.

          • Single
            7.8

            Location, friendly staff.

            Room was a bit cold as central heating had been turned off.

          • Older travelers
            5.0

            Receptionist was very pleasant & helpful.

            Room and bathroom badly in need of a facelift as generally very tired in fixtures and fittings with poor security door lock. Rear car park and surroundings very poorly maintained with piles of disused beds in 1 corner! Rear door to hotel had inadequate security.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Free parking on nearby street. Breakfast included and it was very good. Comfortable room well furnished and with a bath.

            Our room door was right next to a fire/passage door which made it a bit awkward getting in if someone was passing by.

          • Group of friends
            7.0

            Unfortunatlly the table cloth on our table in restaurant was dirty, and the buffet cloth was dirty too.

          • Single
            7.8

            Fruit bowl is a nice touch

            It should be made clear that car parking is charged at the time of booking

          • Family with children
            3.8

            absulite nothing bed was bad ,glasses in bathroom was dirty as was the cups in room. carpet that would trip you, no lift as we had 3 children 1 infant pram and luggage and no member of staff offered to help. verry disapointed there was no restraunt or bar to sit down and relax. no light on landing going around to second family room. then to finish it all off my son sat on bathroom floor to take clothes off for a bath and burnt his back on the radiatior.

          • Single
            7.8

            breakfasts are really great as are the in room tea and coffee making facilities - real coffee and selection of fruit

            it could do with redecoration in the corridors as they are looking very tired

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Friendlyness of reception staff and position of room.
