Stayed here for two nights recently and will certainly return. The room was very comfortable and had everything we needed, the breakfasts were excellent, and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Our stay was enlivened by a fire alarm and smoke in the corridor when another guest decided to light up in a non-smoking room, but even that was dealt with efficiently and charmingly by the staff. The location, directly opposite Temple Meads Station, is absolutely faultless, and although we were afrai... Read more

We were in Bristol to visit family for a couple of days. We had a very clean and comfortable 6th floor double room. The hotel is not far from the centre of town and from Bedminster, where our family lives. Good views over the picturesque Temple Meads Station! Breakfast plentiful and tasty. Wifi reliable and free. Would recommend as a very good place to stay in Bristol.

This hotel served a purpose but we would have wanted to spend much time here. The staff were friendly but we had problems with our cold water running hot which was never resolved. The room was comfy enough and wasn't any late night noise. The breakfast was standard holiday inn fare.

Friendly, helpful and efficient staff. A tasty breakfast with plenty of choice. Close proximity to Temple Meads train and bus station. Only 10 minutes on train to Bath. One minor downside is the beds are small and the air conditioner is above the bed so the blast of air can be very cold.

Used this hotel for stay over. The room was large, clean and had everything I needed except a working iron. Bar was well priced and a please tell place to be. Breakfast choice was good only let down by the English option. Surely a bit if bacon isn't much to ask for. A good 8/10.

We booked this as we were meeting someone arriving at Temple Meads in the evening. First impression was good - the rooms were as we had requested, adjacent and at the back of the hotel away from the road noise. The breakfast was very good - even hot food. There is some parking at the rear of the hotel.

Spent one night, we were given a room rear facing which I think took out a lots of the outside city noise. The room was bigger than I expected, with a great bathroom. Breakfast was included in the price which made it a much better deal. The reception staff were very welcoming on arrival which gave a great first impression. A good Base for a night out in Bristol.

We had wanted to originally stay in Bath but as the hotels were too expensive there we chose this hotel for the convenient location. Indeed it was very convenient, just across the road from Bristol Temple Meads Station.

The hotel is ideally located very close to bristol temple meads train station. The room is on the small size, but the bed was comfy enough. The room was clean but I think the bathroom is dated. Staff were polite and both the check in and out was done very swiftly. Breakfast at this hotel is continental but they do scrambled egg and sausages as hot items. Wifi is also included.

We were in Bristol on a short weekend break. The staff were very friendly and helpful in advising us on places to visit and transport options. The bed was very comfortable. This Hotel is located opposite Temple Mead station which is fantastic if you are making a trip across to Bath. The bus into the City Centre is also opposite the hotel. Would certainly be back when we visit Bristol again.

The Holiday Inn is straight across the road from Temple Meads Station so you have very easy access to trains , buses , taxis etc when you want to go somewhere of a considerable distance ! The streets are signed quite well so easy to walk 20 minutes to Cabot Circus for shopping or other attractions! Motel accommodation is very comfortable. Buffet breakfast offers a good choice of food!

The start of our stay was confused to say the least, the hotel car park is locked and you have to park up and check in before you can gain entry, luckily a guest, who'd had the same confusion, explained the system...

Whilst this could be considered a bland corporate offering, it was good to go somewhere where the presentation and decoration of the rooms was modern and in good condition, there was a working air con unit (no issues here with listed status) and the room was clean and tidy. Food was not quite as good as there was no evening meals and breakfast was adequate. I cannot comment on parking but it is extremely convenient for Bristol Temple Meads Station

Room and bathroom clean and air conditioned , not noisy even though on second floor above busy street (double glazing did its work). Car parking was £12 per day. Good value for a double room - paid around £80 per night. Only gripe was the grey and probably reconstituted muck that masqueraded as scrambled eggs , runny beans and low grade sausages that were offered as part of the complimentary breakfast!

For a quick trip this hotel is ideal. It's clean, serves a hot breakfast as well as continental one at no extra cost. The bed and room were clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The only slight downside was the bed was a bit too soft for us, but that's personal choice.

Great location if arriving by rail (Temple Meads station). Next to a busy main road, we wanted a room at the front of the hotel, overlooking Temple Meads station, which we were given, but if you wanted a quieter room, ask for one at the rear. Breakfast (very good) is included in the room price.

Stayed at this hotel whilst attending Bristol University Open Day. The uni runs free buses from the station opposite and this was an ideal location, minutes away. We were able to leave our car in the car park over night and through until our early evening departure. This came as an extra cost but well worth it. The hotel was very good and breakfast was great, although not a massive selection of hot food. Clean, comfortable beds and helpful staff. Would recommend.

Stayed for one night only and the place was perfectly adequate if you just need somewhere to put your head down. Arrived at 10pm and left 12 hours later. HI Express properties vary according to factors such as - is it a new property? Is it a conversion? The franchise operating the hotel can influence the quality level. I would say this was at the better end of the scale based on stays at three other HI Express properties. It is well located if you need to be in this end of the city - its ... Read more

I usually avoid these HIE properties because they usually make you go to reception to get an ironing board. Thankfully they've ditched that policy so I had a decent time. Always happy to get a free drink at holiday inn's so I can't complain at that. The room I stayed in was clean, quiet, and had a nice view over bristol. The service was good and for the short time I was here, it was decent. Also it's right next to the station which is good.

This is much like other Holiday Inn Expresses: functional but not great. Like all of the others, the breakfast may be 'free' but it's pretty poor, unless you like beans, sausage and dry grey scrambled egg. The parking at this place is also a real nuisance. You have to park by the hotel, check in, get a ticket and code, and then re-park in a fairly grotty multi-storey at the back. If you are travelling by train, though, it's really convenient as it's right opposite Bristol Temple Meads station.

Booking site said hotel had 20 free spaces, 1st come etc. Was not offered this option, was told had to pay £12 to pack in adjacent ncp car park, but there were limited spaces, and when we went there, couldn't park due to no room being available. We had to pay to park elsewhere so BEWARE. The hotel did have ONE DISABLED PARKING BAY, which was taken.The breakf... Read more

Pretty much as other Holiday Express hotels, there are better hotels for less money, nearer the town, breakfast included but pretty basic, car park not as easy as others, overall ok. Last resort hotel for me.

We normally stay here if we visit Bristol since you can leave your car locked up in a secure car park at the hotel. The car park is chargeable at the hotel desk. Takes about 30 minutes to walk into the City or dock area.

The hotel is fine, as is the location. Staff are very good, it's just the parking arrangement, it's such a pain. You need to park up round the back, then get an access code, then go back to your car, then go through the gates, and then grad your case through the gates, and get buzzed in! Not ideal, maybe a better was in the future to assist travellers!

Situated 100yds from the main station in Bristol the location couldn't be better. The hotel is better than many HI EX press Inns. Staff were friendly and helpful. Even at the front on a busy road it was a very quiet room. BUT my biggest gripe with Holiday Inns is the lighting in the room....never bright enough. also breakfasts. ....can't anyone teach them how to scramble eggs properly...even on a mass scale. They were awful. Also offered a room where the sof a had been made into a bed...even th... Read more

We chose this hotel because one of us has mobility problems and it was directly opposite the railway station in Bristol. There was also lift access to the reception area, avoiding a short flight of steps. The road between the hotel and the railway station is very noisy (the main route for ambulances with sirens and lights on their way to the local hospital), so try to get a room at the slightly less noisy back of the hotel. Unfortunately, the toilet in our room was broken and wouldn't flush. A ... Read more

Between the budget to mid-range hotel this is excellently situated close to the mainline station and harbour. Rooms are clean and comfortable, staff helpful,and effecient and the the included in the price breakfast is of a good standard. Unless you are looking for a higher end hotel the Holiday Inn Express is very good value

My other half and I stayed here for one evening, we had a night out planned and so it's ideally across the road from the train station. The location is very good and the hotel was standard holiday inn. It was clean, the pillows were comfy, the bathroom was clean. The staff were extremely helpful and really nice and our stay was very pleasant. Thanks for a nice eve.

The hotel is just outside Bristol Temple Meads station, about a 4-5 min walk. It is not exactly a new property but it is well maintained and refurbished. Decent size room, got twin beds instead of preferred double. Comfortable, well heated room so no complaints there. Breakfast was the usual as well. The hotel is within walking distance of some nice restaurants around the quays, so step out to explore. My only complaint was the lack of any pressure on the shower.

I always travel late in the day when on business so staying at the hotel literally 2 minutes from Temple Meads was ideal. All of the city centre is pretty much accessible within a 10 minute walk. The continental breakfast is also good and included in the price

Excellent location, opposite the road from the train station and a 10 minute walk from the city centre. Clean rooms and comfortable beds! Strange noises in rooms though (pipes?), if you're a light sleeper.

I chose to stay here for one night on business as I could not get a room at the Hilton within my expense budget. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with my choice. I rang the hotel prior to driving to check how to access the car park. There's a narrow street off the main road that's easy to miss. You need to park at the rear, check in and you will be given the code to the secure parking area. Park the car and then head to your room. I bit tedious but good to know the car is safe. I left it t... Read more

Stayed over night on business. Well situated opposite Bristol Temple Meads train station. Staff were helpful. Room was clean. Breakfast offered a cooked option (sausage, scrambled egg and baked beans) as well as a continental breakfast along with the usual cerials and yogurt. Would definitely recommend for business or short stay for leasure.

Basic, but good enough for a night before a flight. Close to the city and the train station. Comfortable bed. Breakfast is adequate. Walking distance (10 min) to the main attractions. Compared to others, good value for money.

Stayed here for a catch up with a friend. It's only a couple of minutes walk from Temple Meads station. The twin room was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Breakfast was busy (it's served in the small lobby area) but there was the usual choice of pastries, fruit, cereal and some hot choices. Staff are friendly. It's a decent place to stay if you don't want to spend too much and want to be walking distance of the station, old town and harbourside.

flew into Bristol airport and caught the very frequent coach service into central Bristol. the stop for Temple Meads railway station is 200 yards from the Holiday Inn. the hotel is also about half a mile from the main shopping precincts and also the river walks and amenities. well placed indeed. A regular bus service runs past the front door to all areas of the city and surrounding places of interest including the city tour bus that also goes to the docks and "bridge". my room was excellent and ...

Being in the cenr - just opposite Temple Meads railway station - there is a lot of traffic noise - even my room at the back on 6th floor was not quiet - but the location is great and rooms comfortable - goop shower/TV and firm large bed. Staff efficient and helpful - I had to ask for very loud music in the breafast room to be turned down and they obliged without issue. Breakfast basic but filling and the coffeee is good.
