Positive Reviews

Fantastic food

Guests have a lot of good words for the food that is served up in the adjoining pub-restaurant below the accommodation. Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, the meals are said to be delicious with generous portion sizes. The range of traditional beers on offer in the pub is also a plus point.

Well-appointed rooms

The rooms are nicely furnished and finished, with guests really liking in particular the fancy bathrooms. Standards of cleanliness are high here too, something which guests really do appreciate as it makes the stay even more comfortable.

Convenient for Bristol Airport

For people needing accommodation the night before leaving on a flight from Bristol Airport, this accommodation will be a good choice for you. The airport is a little over a ten-minute drive away, so it is in a really convenient spot.

Negative Reviews

It gets noisy

A number of guests have made a point of saying how much noise they experienced here. Not only is there noise from passing road traffic to contend with, but guests also say that there is internal noise too from such things as the busy pub below and extractor fans in the bathroom.

Late breakfast time

Though breakfast is well-rated, it is not served early. This means that guests needing to get up early, whether they are on business or on their way to the airport, are unable to have it. As such, an earlier breakfast start time would be preferable.

Air-con would be nice

During hotter times of the year, guests have said that air-conditioning would be appreciated in the rooms. This would make a difference in particular in those rooms where the windows are sealed shut, or at best difficult to open.
