After a few hours delay in Amsterdam I finally landed in Bristol around 6pm and made it to the Brigstow hotel. GPS guided me safely to the hotel, though one-way cobblestone streets with barely room for one car take a bit of getting used to.

We met Dave and Janet, Catherine and Geoff for dinner at Witherspoon's (those with English connections will know the brand).

They were interesting to see although are no longer in use for bathing (they were used for medicinal bathing up to the start of the 20th century). We saw the famous Pultney Bridge and the beautiful river Avon and the weir.

I'm still attempting to get my Visa processed for my trip to China / Tibet. I though the Russians were awkward however that one was a piece of cake in comparison to this. I have bored plenty of people moaning about this issue now! The Chinese are very cautious when letting people see their homeland. That said, things are looking far more optimistic on this front, although the Chinese need confirmation of entry into the country (& train tickets can only be ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Bristol Brigstow Hotel
A lovely Experience
My girlfriend and I stayed in the lovely hotel on a weekend in Bristol. The Staff were extremely efficient and friendly to the point of directing us step by step when lost in Bristol.
Try a room with a view over the river looking down on the beautiful glassboat restaurant below and the swans swimming. The bedrooms are very modern and well laid out with a lovely clean en-suite bathroom with Plasma screens in there. Robes are also provided which are fluffy and soft.
A must for a romantic soppy weekend. Going back soon.
Modern, Stylish and in a Great Location
Been there twice this year first for May bank holiday then august bank holiday and fab both times, had an upgraded room overlooking the river which was nice. The room itself is different from other hotels, very stylish and modern, thankfully wooden floors so none of these horrid carpet stains. In a great location only 5 mins to the shopping part and 5 minutes to all the bars at the quay. Only down side is the parking as you have to pay to park in the NCP next door
Stylish and comfortable
Stayed in an upgraded room, with balcony. Interesting and original room design, slightly odd colour scheme. Balcony nice, although there's not a particularly exciting view. Bathroom has small flat panel tv above the bath -- totally loved this and haven't seen it in any other hotel. Separate shower. Mini-bar. Small business centre in hotel. Breakfast OK in dining room/restaurant.
Would certainly stay again, although Hotel du Vin would be my first pick.
The Brigstow is a great contemporary hotel. Compared to it's peers, it is heads and shoulders above them. It is centrally located and only a 5 minute walk to all parts of the central city. For people who run, it is on the river that runs through the city. There are running areas on both sides. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. The food at the resturaunt for dinner is top notch. I would recommend it to anyone.
stayed at the Brigstow for Valantines night, we had a fab time, the room was great, loved the TV in the bath!!! very clean, staff were friendly, ate in Eclipse, food was great and reasonably priced!! only downside was the parking, Cost ?12.60 although the car park is practically next door, its still pricey!!! although the hotel is in a great location, pleanty of bar, restaurants around and lovely view too!! would definately return!!!!
Really Really Great Hotel. Excellent prices, clean modern rooms, great location. A little gem in the city.
I regularly stay at this fantastic hotel. I can only say what extensive training all the Brigstow team must have which is reflected in the friendly manner all staff I have come across display. Nothing seems too much trouble, I always find the food really nice. Check in and out usually very quick with efficient staff. Every person you see during your stay always greet you with a friendly smile "good morning" etc..
I visited the Brigstow Hotel for the first time recently and, as soon as I walked into reception, it was like a breath of fresh air. The contemporary uncluttered feel and the warm reception I received was so refreshing. I loved the bedrooms and was knocked out by the plasma screen in the bathroom - what a fantastic idea! Dinner was a delight, well cooked and delicious. I was made to feel very comfortable by the excellent restaurant staff, which is so nice, especially when you are a lone female traveller [although, I suspect that all the Brigstow's guests are treated in the same way]. My compliments to the Manager for a beautifully run Hotel - I would certainly visit again when I'm next in the area. I've been in the hotel and tourism industry now for over 25 years and the Brigstow certainly rates as one of my more memorable experiences.
Being a Bristol girl originally, I often find myself visiting family and friends in the area and prefer to have the independant space of a hotel room. For years I have used the Swallow, Marriott and Redwood Lodge with very little complaint, but was delighted to hear about the arrival of a new boutique style hotel (being a 20 something the Marriott decor can prove to be a "bit much" for more than a couple of nights. My initial impressions were favourable and having worked in interior design I could look beyond the first impressions and see a well planned design. The public areas were smart and relaxing and the bedrooms spacious and well equipped. The use of glass fronting the river creates a wonderful effect. There are however some awfully planned elements. The wooden floors in the halls and bedrooms ensure that you hear every footstep or suitcase being wheeled along, or even more annoying the clattering of the housekeeping trolleys at an ungodly hour of the morning. The heavy doors on every room sound as though everyone is a little disgruntled as they leave. The staff are on the whole disinterested, there are very few exceptions. The food is always disappointing and I am certain that customer service is the very last thing on anyone's mind there. After a few disappointing incidents, the Brigstow redeemed itself after I arranged a family lunch to celebrate my Grandmothers birthday, the service was exceptional and the food very much agreeable to everyone aged 5 -80. After my stay this weekend however, I will never return. On Friday morning we were told that at 9.32 we were too late for breakfast, despite the restaurant being quite full with people who had only sat down two minutes earlier. We were told that parking was free on Saturday by an incredibly rude receptionist, then to be told by the car parking attendant that it was actually Â£9. Over a 3 night stay we only had the glasses washed in the room once, the smudges that we found all over the windows were never removed. On Saturday night we were asked to check out by 9 the following morning as they had promised the room to a film crew! Then on Sunday we were told it was fine to park in front of the hotel, to return half an hour later to find that the car had been towed away - Â£125 later and no apology from the hotel. All in all a very disappointing stay, we will not return and would certainly never recommend it to others.
