The Grand Hotel By Thistle Bristol
3 out of 5

We had a one night weekend stay in The Grand. Its in a good location and got off to a great start with friendly staff. Unfortunately about 20 minutes in we realised that our toilet did not flush! I called reception and they sent up a staff member who played with it for 20 minutes, claimed it was fixed and left. Excellent we thought! - BUT Later, again we checked and our toilet was not flushing - at all. So we phoned again, and asked if we could change rooms. They said no, We're full - they'd send a maintenance man - we waited half an hour and then had to go out to dinner. We returned at 9:30pm assuming it would have been fixed, but it hadnt. We phoned and advised it still hadnt been fixed. At this point the duty manager came and finally offered us a room change and a free breakfast for our troubles. This was a good response, i just wish it had happened 4 hours earlier, as it's pretty hard to relax and settle into a place when your toilet doesnt work! The rest of the stay was OK. The complementary breakfast was OK - food was standard quality but the restaurant staff were nice. Probably a good place to stay if the amenities worked.

A very nice hotel in Bristol. Very clean with free parking but expensive breakfast, £15. They also messed up my booking as I ordered a double bed and got a single. The room was quite small. The facilities such as the gym and the swimming pool were great though.

This is an excellent hotel and the staff are very helpful. The rooms are recently renovated and are very well done. We paid budget hotel price for a hotel that was well above that class.

The hotel had a modern but cosy feel. Good location and price though I find parking costs in central hotels are always a bit pricey. We managed to find a road a few mins walk away which was free.

Excellent city centre location. Lots of character although room was a bit small but being an old Victorian building means that all rooms are not going to be the uniform boxes of a modern hotel. Would use again

When I checked in - my room had a dirty Evian drink bottle on the desk from either the cleaners or the previous tennants. I don't usually appreciate cleaning a room when I enter it. I think the internet is very overpriced for a hotel of this quality - it should be free given the room rate - it is at comparable hotels in the area. No air-conditioners in the rooms.

The location and standard of this hotel right in the centre of Bristol was a very pleasant surprise and I appreciated the upgrade you had apparently given me! Thank you

Paper thin noise in the section at the back and as a result very noisy. Lifts were slow too.

The experience was quite mechanical - the staff were efficient but there was not feel of personal connection. I do not feel inclined to go back. Also the leisure facilities were not in the same building - this was a disadvantage also.

Quality Hotel right in the centre of Bristol City Centre, secure parking next door. Clean and comfortable. Service in restarurant left a lot to be desired as did the food. Location superb and allows you not to have to eat in the hotel.
