Good room breakfast and overall stay. Evening restaurant service slow.

Good Location

The location was good as it was near Temple Meads station. The room was clean, the food was good and the hotel was quiet which was great.

Do not accept a stay in room 325

Customer review rating 0.5/5

Sarah H. Families - 16/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were so disappointed with our stay in Bristol Centre Hotel room 325 and even more disappointed in the lack of response from the manager. Room 325 was right next to a boiler room. We didn't realise this until midnight when it started to make loud banging noises all through the night. It was that bad that we recorded it and showed the man on reception at 3am. We chose this hotel as it was a halfway point between our holiday in Cornwall and home. We payed almost £200 for 1 night stay with our 2 children hoping for a good nights sleep before the rest of our journey home the next day. As you can imagine, we didn't sleep at all. There was no manager on the next day (Saturday) when we requested a refund/ discount so we were assured that they would call us on the Monday morning - they didn't. It has been almost 4 weeks now and after numerous phone calls and emails we are still no closer to speak to the manager!!!

Room good and spacious. Close to railway station but a long walk to many attractions. Restaurant menu had poor choices.

Perfectly adequate

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Rk Couples - 16/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

This was a basic hotel room with plenty of space and comfortable. My feeling is that there is a need for a bit of a revamp because everything is tired about the look of the room and bathroom. The breakfast is very good and plenty of variety. Staff in this area seem very tired and unenthusiastic - I know it's probably not what they want to be doing, but this is something which should be addressed.

Very good location

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Steve L 16/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is in a very good location for both the main shopping area and the marina / port side area and just a short walk from the railway station at Temple Meads. The staff were friendly and it’s only the other guests who sometimes ignore the COVID rules. The breakfast is exceptionally good and sets you up for a day of exploring.

Location is difficult to get to by cars; the private parking space and else is so tight for SUV even though this is a paid for service.

Very well located

Came down from Aberdeen for a long week-end and was not disapointed, The welcome from the reception staff, the efficiency of the bar/restaurant staff and the chambermaids made my stay delightful. the large room and That bed was comfortable, clean & tidy. Have stayed here before and will definately be back.

Poor experience

J R. Families - 14/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

In total 5 rooms were booked for a family wedding - one of which was for the bride. We visited the hotel almost three weeks before the wedding to ensure that the rooms were the right size etc as we had hairdressers coming for the bride, bridesmaids and family. The staff who showed us the rooms were very helpful and said that the family would all be together. This was not the case and also the size of rooms were not as booked. We had two rooms on the first floor, two on the third floor and one on the fourth. I tried to book my own room via the hotel's website - it kept telling me to enter my details using the 'latin language' - after three attempts I just telephoned instead but emphasized that I was part of the wedding party and that was confirmed in your email. The executive room was supposed to have robes etc etc which would have been helpful having to travel up and down between floors but this was not the case. The only room which was suitable was my elderly mothers on the third floor - all in all an upsetting day for the family and especially the bride as we tried to do everything in the same room thus delaying the overall process and adding to the stress of the day.

Nice comfortable stay

Colin C. Couples - 13/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

From a very friendly receptionist who checked us in, our 2 night stay was extremely pleasant. The location of the Hotel is close to the rail station and also a short walk from the City Centre and shops. My Wife was ill on our first night, meaning we couldn't go out for a meal as planned. I went down to order some food to take up to my room, and was dealt with very nicely by the lady behind the bar who rang up to tell me when it was ready. Our breakfast was very tasty too. Nice quiet hotel, with a lovely spacious room. We will definitely be back!

Excellent location and staff

Customer review rating 4.0/5

James Business - 11/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Due to the nature of my visit for business, it was a quick stay. Room lovely. Couple of niggles in room but nothing that caused me any great stress, certainly not worth a typical TripAdvisor moan. No milk for coffee and battery for safe flat. Guessing due to covid 24 room service was not available? Staff as normal at Novotel excellent, great to hear European accents!! Forgive me but I live in a very non cosmopolitan area. Breakfast superb and Staff very professional. Reason I chose Novotel, location of my gig I was playing, underground parking and my sister worked for novotel in lyon and Nottingham . Therefore understand the good value, professionalism and the message of organisation. Thank you again.

Central. Friendly staff.

Family Wedding

JohnexRM 11/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

We were going to a family wedding and booked Bristol Novotel as being convenient . Reception was well managed and we enjoyed our stay. Bedside lights would have been good to have. Parking was available which is always a bonus. Breakfast and service was good. Would definitely stay again.

Good location and generally good stay

Room and bed were good, spacious and clean. Appreciated early check in and late check out. We were however woken in the early hours by a man punching a neighbouring door and shouting “let me in you fucker.”

Great location
