As with all my experiences with Premier Inns, the room was clean and comfortable. Warm too. The bathroom was spotless.
Staff were very pleasant and helpful.
The building itself uninspiring from the outside but, hey, you're not going to be looking at it when you're sleeping, eh?
We didn't venture into the bar next door, so can't comment on that.
It's very near the bus station, which was very handy for us arriving in from the airport. And handy enough for the rest of Bristol city centre.
If you can get past the absolutely hideous 1960's tower block exterior then you might actually enjoy your stay here. It's located perfectly, with Bristol Coach Station literally 1 minute away and Broadmead and Cabot Circus 30 seconds away. And it's all for an insanely cheap price!
Inside, the rooms are finished nicely with everything you would expect from a posh hotel. Rooms were spotless, and room service was very prompt and friendly. Receptionists seem to actually enjoy their job unlike most who are more interested in Facebook. They are very helpful in recommending touristy places to visit and how to get there.
The phase 'never judge a book by it's cover' has never been so relevant.
I had some friends up to visit me in Bristol a few months ago and I didn't have the space to accommodate them in my house so they stayed at Premier Inn, and having never been there before I was actually quite surprised when I went along with them.
I have always hated this building, along with all the other high rise dull and tacky building blocks surrounding the central roundabout near Broadmead - they are just hideous and make the city seem like it might continue to be tacky through out (thank god it is not!). The inside of the Premier Inn however is actually pretty nice and well provided; it is modern, clean, spacey and efficient, which is exactly what you need if you just want somewhere to rest your head for a night or two. There is definitely no culture associated with the place though, and once inside you really could be anywhere in the world and you wouldn't know - unless you look at the touristy leaflet board of course!
A definite bonus of this place is that you can get rooms for very cheap prices, and my friends were pleased with their experience because it didn't cost them an arm and a leg. It does depend however when you wish to stay, and during the week their prices are really good but at weekends and peak times I personally would look into staying somewhere with a bit more culture!
If you're looking for 5* chic then this isn't the place for you, but to be quite honest I'd really hope you already knew that.
However if you're looking for a bed for the night which won't break the bank and is close to town then this is as good a bet as any.
- Close to town
- It's got a bar
- Parking is quite limited (though there is overflow parking just accross the road).
As you would expect from a large chain hotel in a city centre.
Clean, helpful staff and a pretty good price. They even tried their best to fit my LWB hi top transit into their loading area for the night so i didn't have to leave it on the road. Unfortunately we couldn't work it around deliveries, but they didn't even need to try so that was a nice touch.
Did not like the location of this hotel at allon a busy, ugly roundabout just away from the main shopping streets. I can have no complaints about the room though, that was really good. I'll probably look around and see what else is available next time.
I was a bit reluctant to tell my parents that the Premier Travel Inn was the closest place to stay near me. But I have changed my ways. There was no need to be so snobby. The room was spotless and the staff were friendly and approachable. This particular travel inn is situated in a prime position right by the centre of Bristol, the harbour and the shops. It can be quite hard to miss because it's on a busy roundabout, but once you get to your room all signs of chaos and hectic lifestyle floats away Sleep well!
There is a certain group of hotels I always tend to lump together - Holiday Inn, Travelodge and Premier Inn. Of these three I always took Premier Inn to be the best, in part due to the suggestive nature of the name - premier by name, premier by nature. Or something. Anyway, having stayed in a Holiday Inn I'd probably change that assumption. That said, this Premier Inn in Bristol is pretty good. The rents stayed here last Christmas and they were very impressed indeed - especially considering the £60 price they paid for the room. This hotel is very much about location location location, situated right next to the main shopping area, the coach station, the hospital and the more bohemian Stokes Croft/Gloucester Road you can't really get much better, though if you're visiting and don't know the area I probably wouldn't advise using the nearby underpass after dark.
Have stayed in a couple of these all up and down the country. I think its only about £90 for a big family room a night, and that includes breakfast as well. Always very clean and the rooms even have sky! I recommend staying in one of these if you need somewhere to stay for a night.
First hotel I stayed in when visiting Bristol and my parents just stayed there a couple of months back. The location is extremely central and you just have to stay away from the st.james barton roundabout and up in stokes croft. Head towards the centre or cabot circus. There is also a great chinese restaurant underneath the hotel. The beefeater is good too. Normal premier inn prices.
An excellent hotel in the centre of Bristol. Really good location in the centre, near the railway station. Good, clean accommodation.
Much better than those terrible travelodges, avoid those, go to a premier inn instead.
