Great location and outstanding food
Have stayed here a few times before flights from Bristol airport. Location is perfect. The good is outstanding and great staff. Comfortable beds and good showers (in the three rooms I've stayed in) definitely recommended.
Kerri, gb1 night business trip
Good 6.0
Disappointing but some positives
We stayed on a warm evening, and the room was way too hot and even with the window wide open this didn't help. We also had a room on the front, and the traffic noise was very bad, apparently the M5 had been closed in the early hours which may have contributed to additional traffic but I think it would still be quite noisy. Slatted blinds at the windows rather than black out curtains didn't help. We slept dreadfully. We ate in the restaurant and the service was poor - one staff on tables and one on bar, it was very busy and we had to wait ages for our main course. That said, staff were very polite and were managing well under circumstances. Food was "ok" - nothing stand out. The room itself was very nice, and had all amenities - iron, board, tea/coffee. Breakfast menu very varied and very nice. All in all not sure would return because of close proximity to road.
