My visit was supposed to be a memorable day as it was my graduation in Bristol. I had booked & paid for breakfast which I was rudely told by a member of staff that I hadnt and therefore was not allowed unless I paid £7.50!! I did not have my invoice for proof so went without.
I checked out around 10am then realised later in the afternoon i had left my 3 gold & diamond rings in the room. These are of such sentimental value to me.
I was taken back to the room which had been cleaned and the rings were gone.
Much hassle later and travelodge staff blaming other cleaning companies, I rang the police.
I was told by the manager that he had spoken to the cleaner that she had not taken my rings.
To cut a long story short, my graduation was ruined by a mindless theif.
The next day after finally managing to get hold of the cleaning company {ISS} my phone calls being cut off or not answered by the area manager of Travelodge. I received a call to say my rings had miraculously appeared. The cleaner had brought them back.
The area manager finally returned my call to say how good his staff were to return my rings without police intervention, and I should write them a rave review.
Well I hope I have done... Would I stay at a Travelodge again? NO
My rating of 1 {worst} is being generous

Historical Traveller Reviews of Travelodge Bristol Central Hotel

Filthy rooms and unhelpful rude staff

from wonda
Stayed in this hotel at the weekend for a night.
The girl working at reception was the rudest, most unhelpful person I have met.
The rooms were filthy - with sanitary towels and used cotton buds on the chairs and dresser.

I would certainly never stay in this hotel again and would not recommend it to anyone.

Not Bad!

from Jojo35
Stayed at this hotel for 1 night with work. The Hotel has parking underneath the hotel that costs £5 for over night which is handy as there is no other parking around due to central location.

The room was ok and as expected for a Travelodge. My room faced the main road and due to the hot weather I had the window open. This proved a bit of a nightmare as numerous buses were pulling up outside and were very noisy. There was no bath and a shower only. This did not affect me as I am not keen on baths in hotels anyway.

I had breakfast the following morning at a cost of £7.50. This was very steep for what it was. The breakfast was buffet style and was not the best quality but did the job. Would recommend walking into town to get better quality at a cheaper price. The coffee machine was out of order and a kettle situated on the counter in its place along with sachets of coffee etc. I felt this was a poor show for the price.
The hotel is a few minutes walk from bars resturants etc so is idealy placed.
Not a bad hotel overall but I suppose it depends on what you pay for it. It is typical of what you expect from a Travelodge.

Would stay here again

from eem_87
After the terrible reviews on here we were dreading what we would find when we arrvied! But we needn't of worried. The room was basic but clean, and had everything we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful. And the location is really good - 10 mins walk from the shops, 15 mins walk from Temple meads station, and 5 mins walk to the bus stop to Clifton.
The only thing wrong with this hotel is that there's nowhere to leave luggage, which meant we had to carry our bags around with us all day.
This hotel is only a travelodge so don't expect it to be 5*!!! But for £21 a night you can't go wrong. We'd definatley stay here again.

Not very good hotel

from Cybersafety
Well out of the city centre so you need to drive or use taxis.

I had disabled room 228 and there were quite a lot of problems with it some of a serious safety nature.

The window handle was missing so the window couldn't be opened, the water in the basin, bath was only luke warm and the shower water was freezing with no way of making it hot. The shower control was so stiff it was nearly impossible to turn off so it dripped constantly.

Worse, somebody had cut the safety cord about an inch from the top of the ceiling so if a guest got into difficulties there was no way of getting help in the bathroom.

When I tried to get out of the bath the rail nearly came away in my hand, the fixing point was cracked around the tiles and it had clearly been like this for a long time as there was dirt in the cracks.

The bathroom floor was grubby and so was the chair and carpet in the room.

There was only a limited menu in the bar, I often find this with Travelodges, they seem to suffer a lot of kitchen problems. The breakfast was OK but pricey.

I definitely wouldn't stay at this particular Travelodge again, the only decent one is in Worcester which is relatively new.

Avoid like the Plague

from ak0995
I booked two nights on the weekend of the may bank holiday, partly for leisure - to vist friends from university, and partly for business - my partner was working in Bristol for three days over the bank holiday. We found the staff to be unhelpful at best (one member of staff watched me struggle down a corridaor with 4 bags, and only offered to open a door), the room was basic but otherwise absolutely fine, but our major gripe was about the noise in the hotel into the early hours. There were evidently a number of stag/hen parties booked in at the same time, and we were kept awake by drunken screaming outside the window until about 4am. I went down to complain, and found what can only be described as 4 semi naked people in the hotel lobby, absolutely leathered, and trying to drink the hotel bar dry. The night porter said that all he could do would be to call the police (but was happy to continue serving them alcohol!!) On returning to the room, another drunken idiot was banging on our door trying to get into the room. We cancelled our next night's stay and complained in the morning and were given a half refund. I asked to speak to the manager but was informed that as it was a bank holiday, he wouldn't be bothering to come in. I left my details and asked for him to contact me when he did come in, but unsurprisingly nothing has happened. Although this hotel may be relatively cheap, I would never stay there again and would be reluctant to stay in another travelodge elsewhere.

Good for a cheap overnight stay

from sam1983
We choose to stay at this hotel as the room was only £15 for a nights stay. We just wanted somewhere to crash and because the hotel is located very close to the restaurants and bars on the waterfront it was perfect. However I wouldn't want to stay here if I was paying anymore than £15pn as the room was very basic, the duvet was thin, we had a view of the ongoing building works in Bristol, the noise from the main road was very obvious and there was no ice in the bar for drinks.

Stay Away!

from vittel31
Don't go here - the computer system is completely out of date. Every time you have to do anything at the desk it involves 15 minutes of the girls just staring at the computer screen. Overpriced, not clean, noisy - and the window in my room was broken. I would never stay in another Travelodge after my experience here.

Avoid this downmarket hotel.

from Canoldir
In a good location for a walk into the centre of Bristol and with a good garage under the hotel. At £61 for a room and £5 for parking, I thought the hotel was poor value. Rooms are small and very very basic. There are lots of excuses from Travelodge as to why there are not more refinements in the rooms. The Ibis opposite looks a great place to stay and is a cut above this Travelodge. The hotel has a small bar next to Reception but it is a funereal place and it's better to walk into Bristol for eating and drinking. Travelodge argue that most people just want a basic room. All I can say is that they are welcome to it! I would not stay there again as you have the feeling that Travelodge are cutting down on costs everywhere. It was not a pleasant experience. Reception staff were not very friendly.

ok- would recommend

from ael0d
Booked the £26 room for 3 adults.
Stayed for 1 night.
Good central location.
Room OK - clean, plenty of towels/pillows, tea making facilities, tv and more importantly quiet.

However, no left luggage facility and unhelpful staff.
As it worked out less than £9 each- can't complain.

Awful, avoid if you can

from Meanioni99
I'm used to staying in Travelodges and other similar places. This is one of the worst. What it gains in location and price, it loses on quality of the room (sticky carpets, chipped and damaged furniture), appalling breakfast (no food available when I turned up, after 10 minutes a spotty teenager arrived with glutenous beans and bacon that was covered in little black bits, coffee that was bitter and nasty).

The reception staff were not particularly friendly either.

I slept OK - bit noisy. Would not stay here again.

Top Local Tips for Bristol

Car Parking Dont forget to add car parking at £7.50 to your hotel stay cost as this may make your stay more expensive than other hotels (there is a much better hotel opposite the hotel ibis)the car parking is not guaranteed either so if you have paid on the night of arrival and say go out to dinner come back and there is no parking then hard luck there is a nice ncp opposite at £13.10

Hatchett Great pub food nearby towards the city centre, in the older area of the centre. Loads of restaurants nearby but were a little souless in the new development.

Way out there stuff. There is a long hill called Park Road that goes up from the river that is just full of amazing shops for clothes and other cool gear. Also up there is an amazing cafe called The Boston Tea Party.
