5/5 Excellent

My sister and I stayed here for night whilst visiting Bristol for a concert and we cannot say enough how great this place is and the staff (especially Cassie), they were so friendly and helpful, they also provided us with a local taxi company that couldn’t do enough for us, making sure we had a car back guaranteed. Would recommend the rising sun to anyone looking for accommodation in Bristol.

5/5 Excellent

Like: Location to Airport and ease of parking. Friendly and very helpful staff. Food was excellent. Dislike: A little bit of late night noise from pub below, but not a problem as we were tired, and It is a pub after all!

Very enjoyable, service great, evening meal lovely and breakfast too. But very noisy road at front of building.
