I travel quite a bit for work, and wanted something different to a chain hotel. Well, I got that! The room was a bit on the small side, but had such lovely touches like fresh fruit in the room, proper filter coffee, an old style retro radio and gorgeous furniture that made you look past the size. There was some...

I wasn't expecting much as The Clifton was at the bottom of the list of hotels in Bristol. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The room is simple and the furnishing is out-dated but the little extras made a difference. I loved the fruit bowl and the cafetiere, and the folded swan towel was a nice touch. Considering it's in a...

Great location as very close to the university. Quiet road. Staff: Alex went out of his way to post back the laptop charger I had left in my room. Thanks again for such outstanding service! Excellent breakfast. Amazing reception staff.

Used this Hotel for a 4 day business trip in Bristol. Reasonably priced, good food, friendly staff. Room could be bigger but is comfortable and everything you need. Small bathroom would suggest you request a refurbished room as my room definitely required a facelift. All in all I would use it again.

We stayed on a Wednesday en route to Cornwall. On street parking is Pay and Display 9.00am to 5.00 pm. Clifton has own parking garage for £6.50 /night but only about 12 spaces, but is worth it if you can get in. Hotel is tidy rather than clean, and furnishings rather tired now, but the staff are friendly and helpful....

Booked into this hotel at the last minute as I couldn't face the drive to London after spending the day working. I was surprised to get it for just £44 including breakfast.
