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...

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... 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

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... More

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... More

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...

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.
