Historical Traveller Reviews of The Brigstow Hotel
What a let down!from A TripAdvisor Member
Great place to Stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The Brigstow does not come cheap but it is well worth the extra few pounds.The hotel is right on the waterfront with only a lane inbetween it and the water.My room was on the front and it was quiet too..such a rarity in a city centre.
The bedroom was very stylish and had everything I needed including fresh air from the balcony French doors but get the plasma screen tv in the bathroom for something a bit different !
I also really liked the hotel staff,they were quite young but well trained and with a genuine desire to please in a relaxed manner.The restaurant on the ground floor was also very good with a lot of local food which I thought was a nice touch.
Check in and out went well and yes I will stay at TheBrigstow when I am next in the Bristol area.
The X Factor in style!from A TripAdvisor Member
As I travel worldwide, it was good to see that the hotel was partnered up with British Airways, which provided me with some detailed flight information from Bristol International Airport. The hotel restaurant was lovely as it overlooks the river – I really recommend the fish pie – absolutely delicious! The bar serves well-chilled beverages and the staff were really helpful and friendly. Although my visit was with work, I will definitely be bringing my partner with me for a relaxing weekend very soon. Well done to the Brigstow staff!

Slightly quirky rooms, but I liked itfrom RoamingScot
To me, the rooms had a bit more character than a standard hotel - the rug, the wooden flooring, the way the bed was placed at an angle in the room, and the tile TV in the bathroom (!) - which made it a pleasant place to stay. The rooms are a decent size, especially the bathrooms. I didn't have an evening meal in the restaurant, but only because the hotel is well located, with lots of eating places a few minutes away. I did take breakfast, and appreciated the freshly squeezed orange juice and good, strong coffee.
Things to watch out for are occasional noise in some locations in the hotel - both from the plumbing in other rooms, and from a large fan at the back of the hotel which started up at about 5 in the morning when I was there - and erratic hot water temperatures in some rooms, with the water going from cool to scalding and back again in a few seconds. However, these are minor gripes. I enjoyed staying at the Brigstow, and would happily go back.
Stylish but noisyfrom Claire_murray
Very stylish hotelfrom petsounds
Much better value than the Marriott Royalfrom nova
I had a decent sized room with river view and very nice bathroom...the plasma screen is a bit of a gimmick but it does allow you to listen to the radio while lying in the bath.
One thing which I particularly liked was that the window looking onto the river actually opens fully, unlike the trend for hotel windows which open just a tiny crack.
I have three criteria to judge hotel breakfasts by and the Brigstowe hit the mark on all three - good coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice and plump herby sausages.
The location is pretty good is well; about 15 minutes walk from Temple Meads, 5 minutes from the centre of the town and a good selection of pubs and restaurants close by.
Overall I prefered the Brigstowe to the Marriott Royal (where I usually stay) - a nicer location, more competent staff and and more relaxed atmosphere.

Top Local Tips for Bristol
Eating out. Try Loch Fyne(Smokehouse) on the river front. Fabulous seafood selection. Also try Severnshed stylish and great food. You must book though to avoid disappointment.
Queen Square Pubs Definitely plenty of dining and drinking around Queen Square. I particularly enjoyed 3 Sugar Loaves at the base of the Christmas Steps.
Wonderful City Wander around this great city full of things to see and do. Loads of good eating places and a great night life.
