I've stayed at the Rodney hotel a few times during the week while working in Bristol. The building is interesting and the location is great. The single rooms are quite small but fine for my needs and they are good value. The rooms are always very clean and perfectly made up which is a credit to the staff (Joana in...

I've stayed at the Rodney on a couple of occasions now and I am always impressed by the friendliness of the service and the decent breakfast on offer. The complimentary toiletries are very nice too! It is superbly priced for the location. Parking can be difficult but not an insurmountable problem. We stayed on the ground floor (Room 5) which...

I booked this hotel specifically for the location and the history of the building, as my girlfriend is from abroad and I was keen to show her around beautiful Clifton village. Sadly, on arrival in our taxi, the front of the hotel was totally hidden behind ugly scaffolding, we had not been informed about this in advance, so highly embarrassing...

Dear BarcelonaPaulo24, Thank you for taking the time to review the Rodney, I am disappointed that you were obviously not entirely happy with your stay. Unfortunately the website you made your reservation through does not pass guest contact details on to us, and we need to go through them to contact you. Due to this convoluted process I am terribly...

Stayed here for my birthday. Unlike other comments on here we were not informed about the scaffolding outside our room. Had hoped for a lie in but knowing that builders will be outside your room the next morning did put a damper on things. I do appreciate however that they need to do these works. Managed to park outside which...

Dear Modern_13, Thank you for taking the time to review the Hotel, and many happy returns for your birthday. I do apologise that you were not informed of the scaffolding prior to your arrival, we are aiming to courtesy call all guests to inform them so I will certainly check when this should have been done. The work, which was...

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst facilitating a training course nearby. All the staff were friendly and helpful and my room, though on the small side, was clean and had a very comfortable bed. I appreciated the bowl of fresh fruit and option to have fresh milk. Although permit parking is very restricted, I was able to leave my...

Dear Linda B, I am so pleased you enjoyed your recent stay with us, and the Rodney provided you with the comfort you needed while being away from home. Our room sizes do vary due to the period nature of the building, but please don’t hesitate to request a slightly larger room for any future visits. I’m glad you enjoyed...

Stayed here for a couple of nights whilst on training course. Nothing was too much for the hotel, all staff extremely helpful and polite. They even phoned day before arrival to just let me know they has building works on. Honestly a lovely hotel and will remember it if I need to come into bristol again.

Dear Rachel C, Thank you much for your kind review. I am so pleased we suited your needs and you enjoyed your stay with us. The restoration works are quite extensive and we certainly don’t want anyone’s stay to be impacted by this so we are trying to inform everyone on booking of the work and also through our routine...

Stayed here 3 nights over a weekend. Parking is a real problem here, particularly at the moment with extensive roof repair work which reduces the availability of parking in front of the hotel due to scaffolding and skips. If you're lucky you'll get a place but you have to pay for this at £7 per day, or alternatively on street...

Dear cjpvision, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback.

As you mentioned, we are undergoing some restoration work to our roof an also the windows at this time. It has meant that one...

On the positive side the room we had was spotlessly clean.The reception staff (Max in particular ) was faultlessly professional & couldn't do enough to help my beautiful Julie and I on our 1 night stay.On the downside don't bring your cat as you won't have enough room to swing it about as the room was rather small and being...

We think that value for money the Rodney is great and it's our third stay there. The location in Clifton Village is perfect for all the shops and pubs and the walk to the waterfront takes about twenty minutes. It's an old typical Clifton building and therefore quirky with a lovely little bar and restaurant. The best thing about the...

My friend and I were down in Bristol for the weekend and had a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were very comfortable (despite their size) and we got 2 nights of great sleep. The only downside was that we never had any hot water throughout our entire stay! We grinned and beared it at first but on our last day...
