Powered by AI

The Ibis Bristol Temple Meads Quay hotel garners appreciation for its prime location near the Temple Meads station and central attractions, ideal for both business and leisure travelers. Despite this, guests have called out the need for room refurbishments and modernization, citing dated décor and issues with soundproofing and light control that impact sleep quality. While many reviewers commend the hotel's cleanliness, opinions on value and service vary, with some applauding the staff's friendliness and others pointing out service inconsistencies and high prices not matching the quality on offer.

We stayed over night and booked with booking.com
Use your sat nav as you’ll never find it. We were greeted by a very polite receptionist who have us the card to the room.
Yes the rooms are very outdated and plain but there’s everything you need for a comfortable stay. We had a very crisp and clean double bed, towels, extra pillow and soap/shampoo.
There is also a hairdryer and kettle with coffee and paper cups.
Rooms are in desperate need of upgrading but the bed was one of the most comfortable beds ever. We took a small pooch with us and were charged an extra £10 for the night which we felt was a good price.
We also enjoyed a drink in the bar while we waited for Uber eats to arrive. There are many local Uber eats and it appeared very popular maybe as the location of the hotel is not near any main shops.
Drinks were reasonably priced and bar area had plenty of covid restrictions in place.
We didn’t eat at the restaurant so cannot comment on the food
Down side to this hotel is the parking situation. After 6pm you can park in the streets outside not needing to move the cars by 9am. At present there is lots of building going on so making parking very difficult. Overall would I return? Most probably yes.

I booked the wrong Ibis for a business meeting the following morning, but the Temple Quay where I wanted to be were able to accommodate me at 6:30pm when I walked in.
Nice room and interesting pod type bathroom.
Great buffet breakfast
Good price
No hotel parking - park on street from [5pm] until 9am, then move to an off street parking 150m away;
Absolutely no noise from building site next door.
I had a great nights sleep in a comfy bed.

Context: late flight into Bristol, couldn't get train home so needed to stay overnight near the station ready for an early train. I have lived in Bristol twice and know the area well.

OK, what a weird place..I'll start positive, check in and check out incredibly smooth and quick and the staff were OK. Bed was clean, comfy and slept well.

The room itself, for a newish hotel.. Wow. Wood chip walls and ceiling, TV and remote didn't work properly and the kettle takes forever.. OK you're not there generally for a good TV or a quick kettle but you should really get the small things right.. Oh and the milk was rank...if staying a couple of nights, go get a small carton elsewhere...it was Twinnings tea and made it taste terrible.

The bathroom.. Not quite sure what they were thinking or trying to do but feels like a portacabin at a festival, screams of money saving technique during the build.. But it was clean, shower was actually really good, but it feels a little claustrophobic and odd.

Summary. Would I stay there again.. If I needed a place close to the station and getting in from the airport on the bus potentially. But it was £93 and there are many many better hotels in Bristol for a similar price and located better in the city. Even better not far from the station.

For a budget hotel coming out of lockdown we were very impressed at the cleanliness of the hotel and our room in particular. Very convenient for nearby Rail Station. All the staff were friendly and keen to assist as required. Had a lovely quiet room on the 5th floor and a great shower. A fast lift took us back to ground floor and booking in /out was no problem. Slight downside was lack of choice for cereals but that I think that was due to current delivery problems generally. Recommended!

Stayed in several Ibis’s previously in different cities and they have always been very friendly and inviting: so I was really disappointed with this place. It looks very flash and modern in the reception but the rooms are very old and in major need of a refurb! Upon check in several people in front of us got offered if they wanted a quiet room, what floor they wanted to be on, whether they wanted to add breakfast - we didn’t get offered any of these on check in, it was pretty threw the keys at us and that was it. We had booked a 3 night stay, not once was our room cleaned despite asking the cleaner to clean the room. We had to go down to reception and ask for clean towels, toilet rolls and tea, coffee and mugs. Even after advising the receptionist staff the cleaner hadn’t been once they didn’t seem at all Interested. Every night a stag party would wake us screaming and shouting outside our door in the early hours on the morning with the last night someone kept knocking on the door waking us and running away. The room itself was very basic, barely clean. Dust all over the floor, sides sticky, in need of a major refurb. This is the only bad ibis we have stayed in despite being the most expensive at £100 a night.

Rooms were very average, toilet and shower were inside a white box like cubicle which did make me and my partner feel like we were stepping into the inside of a sweat bin. Bar staff were lovely and doing their best but clearly were undertrained, welcome staff were not interested by much and were hardly welcoming. Upon eating breakfast in the morning we were asked on two separate occasions by two different staff members for our room number as if we hadn’t just come down from our room moments ago. We were then rushed out of breakfast by a staff member who continually cleaned our plates and bowls off the table almost as soon as we finished eating. The food itself was nice yet as per usual in hotels half of the freshly baked goods were gone by our time of arrival and no one seemed intent on refilling certain food items. One of the members of our group who arrived with us at breakfast was told he hadn’t got a booking for food, the booking website allowed a selection of 4 people but only charged for 3. It is also interesting that a SINGULAR self serve breakfast costs you 24£ which is cleverly not mentioned in the online website. Overall, not a great experience, some staff were trying and some were very clearly not.

Stayed here before, the only fault I could find the first time was that the room was BOILING and I mean I had to have a cold shower in the middle of the night it was so hot despite turning the heating off.

This time was so different. The room was lovely but again it was so hot it made sleeping impossible, even with the window open! Then I found several members of staff UNBELIEVABLY RUDE. I work with children and they would be told off if I was spoken to the way these grown adults spoke to me. The receptionists response to this was “well they don’t really speak English..” that’s not an excuse to shout at me for asking a simple question. Not all staff were like this though, the reception staff were lovely and very helpful.

The breakfast was a joke. Waited 30 minutes for beans and so many other items! By that point I wasn’t even hungry but still had to pay the £10 for food. Because I had 2 hash browns while I waited for nearly every other item to arrive. This was around 9am.

Have to say after this visit, it will be my last, I’d rather pay for manners and not to be spoken to like dirt. If I couldn’t get a bottle of water, just say sorry we’re shut, not shout at me.

As a member of Accor hotels ALL programme I needed a nights stay to boost my membership level we choose Bristol as we know the city well and as we only stayed overnight thought this venue offered the best value.
First the location, which you cannot fault. It is literally two minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads stn, with great access into the city.
Check-in was a breeze and staff were extremely helpful and professional. Our room was on the top floor of the hotel with good views, However there is a building site opposite and I fear that depending on the height could affect light on that side of the building. The room was large, for an IBIS, with plenty of space.
The bar area was well stocked with beer from a local brewery, about 5 minute walk, on tap. In fact we visited the brewery after we checked in and they confirmed they had installed the lines in the hotel.
For ALL members this is the first hotel in the UK where I have received a welcome gift for sometime.

Agree with the last reviewer that it "does what it says on the tin". The positives:
It is easy to check in with friendly staff.
The hotel is easy to navigate
It is well situated a short walk from the centre of Bristol and it is mainly along pedestrianised walkways
The room was spotlessly clean and the bed comfortable
The choice for breakfast and quality was good
The water pressure for the shower was amazing.
The negatives:
The room was bland and sole less.
It could do with the sockets updating to take USB power units
The hot food for breakfast could have been a few degrees hotter.

This hotel is very short walk from the rear entrance to Temple Meads railway station and is in a fairly new mixed commercial and residential riverside development. By requesting a quiet room during my pre-arrival online check-in, I was allocated a 6th floor room well away from the ongoing construction work nearby. I experienced a very quiet 2 night stay and slept well. Being a heatwave I appreciated the efficiency of the air cooling system. The young staff were all friendly and helpful. Be aware the restaurant full evening menu is only available Monday to Thursday - the lighter bites menu offered on other nights is very expensive for what you get. At breakfast there is a good hot and cold selection, but the quality of the scrambled egg varies depending on the chef. Most areas of the city centre are within an easy walking distance from this hotel.

Only people with a key card can access the lifts, Also if you come back to the hotel late at night you will need the card to open the main doors, However there are security men on the doors.

Unfortunately I don't know for sure, as I booked on B&B basis, so it was included. The going rate is normal between £10-£15.

There is a car park just past the hotel towards town where you can pay hourly or overnight. Sorry I can’t remember how much it was. The hotel staff will tell you the address if you call them so you know exactly where it is.
