Really enjoyed my stay here, couldn't have been better!
On arrival I asked if there was a view from my room. The friendly receptionist said no, but I could upgrade for only £10!! I was thrilled, because the hotel is in a lovely area, overlooking the river and has some nice views of the city.
The room was fab, though not the biggest, the bathroom was perfect. Best service I've had from a 4 star.
The buffet breakfast, which was included with the room, had everything you could possibly ever want and the staff were pleasant and helpful. Loved the little sachets of nutella!
The location is brilliant - on the water and in between Temple Meads station and the city centre. Short walk to both. Had a lovely wander around the main shopping area and through the beautiful old city.
I will definitely be visiting Bristol again and definitely staying at the Brigstow.
A small note: There is another Mercure hotel in the city, which I turned up at by mistake!
