Without trying to disrespect HI, I wasn't expecting much from this hotel. It was reasonably priced and had a convenient location.
Upon arrival i didn't think it looked that great from the outside if i am absolutely honest. However as soon as i stepped through the door, i was immediately surprised.
It was modern, spacious and well laid out.
It was a lot bigger than i'd anticipated, which i assume is due to being aimed at a business audience with the amount of conference rooms they have.
The room was really nice, although quite small, but comfortable enough for a couple of nights.
Breakfast was really nice. Large buffet with most things you would expect. it has a small bar and a cafe serving starbucks.
The two minor things i would say about this hotel are;
It was quite noisy. I'm not sure if i can blame the hotel for that, as they can't control every guest who stays.
The other is the price of the wifi. I find it ridiculous that in the modern age with the ease and cost of communications "a sector i work in", that it can cost £14+ for the internet, but again i assume that is because they are business orientated and are trying make a good profit on that side of the business.
overall i would recommend it here and would stay here again if was in the Bristol Area.
We arrived early but were able to check in before the official check in time which was very helpful as we can the go into Bristol and not worried about arriving too late to check in at night. All the members of staff were very friendly and cheerful.
The room was clean and comfortable and has tea making facilities. The included breakfast was excellent.
A very pleasant stay indeed. Will certainly book there again.
Very good access onto the main roads ideal for my work in Bristol. The cottage has excellent facilities and it is very quiet there. There are good local facilities just a short walk away which was ideal.
