      Perfect

      The location was perfect and the service was faultless. Bathroom was clean. The inroom coffee/tea set was a nice touch.

      The breakfast can be improved (Eggs were cold aswell as bacon being tough and tasteless). Breakfast area seating needs to be improved as outdoor seating is not quirky it's just uncomfortable.

      Nice

      The location was good and the free juice in reception was nice

      There was an eggy smell around reception/ the lift areas the whole time The car park was quite difficult to get out of as we didn’t know we needed a seperate ticket to leave The rooms were very dark, one big light would have also been helpful

      Very good

      The staff were all very polite, cheerful and helpful. The room rates and prices for food were fair.

      For a 4 star hotel it was, overall, a little disappointing. The dining was limited - let's face it, Keepers is just a level above ordinary pub food. The rooms were nothing above ordinary. Parking was something of a mystery - no clear explanations.

      the location is perfect. the rooms are small and quite old but the decoration is nice. very nice staff at the reception.

      the swimming pool and the sauna are not in use and is not what it says on their page!! housekeeping staff kept knocking on our door to check if the room was vacant when our check out was ours after.

      Perfect

      I appreciated stuff and rooms. The property was right in the heart of the city. It was a short walk to The Ox, where you can have lunch.

      It was a great stay. Very good staff and location, we appreciated this great central hotel. Exceptionally comfortable beds, an electronic key card, a work desk and ironing facilities in the room.

      Perfect

      The atmosphere was quiet, brilliant food, the location was unbeatable completely down hill. The triple room was newly renovated, had an air conditioning, a sofa bed and an iron. The bed was comfy, plus the bathroom was a decent size. Enjoyable base for rest.

      Nice

      Great location, comfortable rooms.

      Food not good at all. Most of the items on the dinner menu were unavailable despite us being the first to order on the night. Even the Peroni had run out at the bar. Breakfast was even worse - stone cold and the orange juice was so diluted.

      Perfect

      Fabulous location, comfortable double room with required bath.

      Accommodating staff, hotel not too full which made the stay pleasant.

      Some closing door noise but not enough to keep us awake.

      Perfect

      Since I was already a customer I can appreciate the location, friendly service staff (parking possibility - although very narrow)

      quite small single rooms (even if basically sufficient), bathroom equipment has not been raised for a long time. Breakfast has worn off a bit,

      Very good

      Great location in the middle of the old town, easy to reach with the Bristol Flyer. Nice bar. The beds were great, the bathroom was properly equipped.

      The room was quite small and had hardly any storage space / closet. No minibar or anything like that, no water in the room.
