Historical Traveller Reviews of Jurys Bristol Hotel
Wonderful hotelfrom Itchy_English_Feet
The rooms have been recently renovated and are really plush, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The Nespresso machine is a nice touch (even if the coffee that comes from it is terrible!). Some other reviewers commented on noise at night, from the bars across the water in the harbour area, but we didn't hear a sound.
Staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful, and the food at breakfast was really excellent.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Lovely Hotel, Great Locationfrom GloucesterDave
The bar overlooks the waterside and boats, but we thought £6.50 was rather a lot for a glass of wine. Our main problem was the Sunday morning breakfast service, there was a long queue for a table, then a queue for the self service food, there were no eggs available and no tea, coffee or toast despite asking three times! If I stayed again I would use a local bar or cafe for breakfast. I did complain and they knocked the £8.00 car park charge off and told me it was often like that on a Sunday.
Good value for money and a great locationfrom Fastflight
The location is perfect for seeing most of Bristol's sights and because they have done up the floating harbour in recent years there's a nice feel to the whole area with lots of cafes, bars etc nearby. Its especially nice when the weather is good as it was when we stayed.
We had dinner in the hotel restaurant which, being a grill room, doesn't have a very extensive menu. However the food was very good, the 10 oz Rib-eye steak I ordered was cooked perfectly and the service was friendly and efficient. The wine list is a bit over-priced in my view although you can get a decent bottle for less than £20 if you look carefully. Although the restaurant wasn't that busy it had a nice atmosphere and a good location overlooking the harbour area. It deserved to be busier than it was in my opinion.
Breakfast was a typical buffet style operation which provided a good selection of traditional english breakfast food along with more continental style offerings. It was efficiently run as well with the food being replenished frequently. You could eat as much as you wanted which meant that we were able to skip lunch that day! Check out was quick, efficient and friendly with no surprises on the bill either. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Bristol. There is an NCP car park next door to the hotel and you can gain access to the car park directly from your bedroom corridor using your hotel key which is very handy. Parking is free between 17:30 and 09:30 if you get your ticket validated by the hotel when you check out. One word of warning though - I ended up paying £4 extra because I left the car park at 09:45. The smart thing to do if staying at a weekend would be to move your car onto the street in front of the hotel before 09:30 thus avoiding this extra charge.
Wonderful stay in Bristol hotelfrom Bigb0i
Room was modern with flat screen and internet provided too.
Though noise from road was a disturbance because room was facing the road -why would anyone be honking at 2am in the morning beats me- but next time i'll be sure to request room facing the river.
Smart and a bargain at offer pricefrom Phunkstar
very nice but knocked up by cleaner at 8.30am on a Sundayfrom mbarkworth
Great location but would be expensive at half the price.....from StortfordSB
Location good; rooms fine, but on night we were there hotel couldn't cope with number of guests and was way too pricey.
Lovely hotel, great locationfrom JSB1119
Keep up the good work and I'll be back.
PS: Room rate was £69 via Laterooms
PPS: I spend 3/4 nights per week in hotels and this, for the money, has been the best for a long time.
hot water problems-still?from freyas_dad
breakfast was fine and cooked to order, and again the ambiance was pleasant, with views out onto the waterfront.
now the downside. we were staying prior to getting a morning flight from bristol airport so had to get away fairly early. i rose and showered about 6am, however when my wife went into the bathroom just a short time later there was no hot water whatsoever. we informed reception who told us that they had a problem with the heater during the night-i should have questioned this as i had had no problem just a short time before, and after reading a previous review it does appear that there is some problem here-again we were on floor 5!
we were grateful that the helpful receptionist made a room on the 6th floor available to my wife fairly swiftly after being notified however i am a bit disappointed that this problem does appear not to have been resolved yet, and had we been in more of a rush to get our flight it could have been a hassle.
so, would i stay here again? well yes i would. despite the hiccup with the water i enjoyed the stay, and also the car park which adjoined the hotel was free-overnight at least-something that we had to pay for at the holland house.
Top Local Tips for Bristol
safety & food! We generally felt safe whilest out late at night in Bristol. However, Bristol could do much better for late night takeways in the area where we stayed.
Dynasty overrated The Chinese restaurant Dynasty is overpriced - food is good, but go to the Cathay instead.

You can search for information and print it out for free, also you can make pictures of yourself there or record a video clip of yourself and send them or send e-postacard of Bristol, it's free.
