    The pool and sauna facilities were an added bonus considering the reasonable price of the hotel rooms.

    The staff could have been friendlier (particularly in pool facility) & more efficient (at reception).

    Good

    The hotel was in an excellent location to visit the city of Bristol.The room was clean and the staff were polite and helpful.

    It was very noisy at night as there was a wedding party in the hotel.Also, I had a single room which was very small. For £100 per night, I felt it should have been bigger.

    Good

    The location for the City centre is superb, the main shopping area in one direction and the waterside ambiance the other......great for a city centre break.

    The air conditioning is so noisy you can't sleep but it's too warm without....... dilemma that results in a lack of sleep! An unexpected and unwelcome situation. There are similar priced hotels in the immediate locality that are better! The bar is tired and in need of modernisation!

    Fabulous

    I thought the staff were very professional and always pleasant with good manners. I also thought the breakfast was of a good quality - especially the sausages.

    The toilet for the downstairs bar area was hard to find and quite a distance from the bar.

    We liked the location

    We were very dissapointed in the room we asked for a nice room as it was our aniversary, we booked a room with a luxury bathroom clearly this was not a luxury bathroom there was only 2 very small towels one small bottle of shampoo and another bath shower gel the bath had a very nasty green mark and if you turned the shower on more water came out of the top of the tap than the shower there were broken tiles on the wall ltogether very dissapointing.also we could hear the air conditioning unit outside our window all night
