          • Excellent location, very reasonable value and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The bed was extremely comfortable, breakfast was good and fresh fruit and biscuits too was great.

            Rooms overlooking main road out front are quite noisy, the hotel itself is not for are more sensitive to cleanliness.

          • Good location and great value. Staff were quite accommodating, the room size was fine for a single room and the food at Racks was excellent.

            Bit dated would definately stay again, little bit old style and the windows were completely rotten and the shower was inadequate. Breakfast was a bit slow and cold by the time got to me.

          • Handy position for centre and Clifton Ddowns about 1 mile away. Very central for Bristol, good price and friendly welcoming staff were also very helpful. Shower worked quickly and well, the breakfast was substantial.

            The rooms on the ground floor were a bit noisy from people coming in and out of the reception area, bed was rather uncomfortable.

          • Location and good value, secure car park, re looking for a well priced room in a favourable part of town then I'. Staff very nice and efficient, just the job for an overnight stay, heated towel rail in bathroom. Breakfast is perfect.

            Additional £6 per day for on site car parking charges as local free parking was very crowded, worst hotel Ive stayed in during my trip in England and and for the all the money that I paid, was truly awful. The shower was not enjoyable.

          • The location was excellent for my visit of the university, the quality of the breakfast was also fantastic as was freshly cooked and staff were very friendly and efficient. The shower in the shower room was difficult to adjust to the desirable temperature.

            As good as much more expensive places and overpriced, uncomfortable bed.
