            Breakfast was tasty.

            Only a dozen parking spaces were available in back of hotel with inconvenient access. These spaces had to be vacated by 8:30 a.m. so that another business could use them during the day. Floors in bathroom were lumpy because of pipe work which was not set deeply enough into the floor. Walls and carpet in all areas of the building were filthy. Back door of the hotel had broken lock allowing anyone at anytime access into the building.

            The location was good.

            The room was badly in need of decoration with peeling wallpaper and dirty marks on walls and paintwork. The bed was in need of replacement and very uncomfortable. Breakfast was average

            Clean and comfortable, very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent value for money with filter coffee, hot chocolate and fruit in your room. Lovely breakfast.

            Although very comfortable, the room and bathroom were a little small and felt cramped.

            The location of the hotel in the Clifton area and not far from the City centre makes it an ideal place for visiting Bristol at a price which is reasonable. The room was fine for a short stay and had a good supply of tea,coffee and fruit

            I thought the hotel was looking a little tired in certain areas, especially the shared bathrooms and toilets.

            Receptionist was very pleasant & helpful.

            Room and bathroom badly in need of a facelift as generally very tired in fixtures and fittings with poor security door lock. Rear car park and surroundings very poorly maintained with piles of disused beds in 1 corner! Rear door to hotel had inadequate security.

            Free parking on nearby street. Breakfast included and it was very good. Comfortable room well furnished and with a bath.

            Our room door was right next to a fire/passage door which made it a bit awkward getting in if someone was passing by.
