Today we left the home of the Beatles behind and traveled onto Cardiff. We made our first successful train transfer and made it here with no difficulties. Once in the city we checked in and began exploring. We decided to go for a traditional English afternoon tea at Pettigrew Tea Rooms. It was delicious! We had a choice of three sandwiches, tea, and a slice of ...
So we left Cornwall and followed a huge, yellow gibbous moon. Saw the sun rise over Stonehenge. The mist pooled and we wondered - briefly - why were leaving beautiful south-west England.
At Fleet services at 5am, we had a great surpirise as Dawn's dad ( Umpa) was there ...

... It felt like seconds had passed.
The chancellor then proceeded to give a long and boring speech, about following your passion and "we can achieve great things". Eventually, we were lead out into a champagne reception. It was done. We could relax. Dad somehow managed to sneak Dan in, we all cheered with some champagne, I said hello and took pictures with my tutors, and we were rushed outside for a standard "hat throw" picture.

Good place. Neat and nice. We just used it in the night for 2 night stay with our wee one who was 2 years old. Very silent and an excellent place to stay. The location is great we could just walk to the train stations and to the Zoo as well.

Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Bristol Centre
GOOD STUFF: Complimentary parking (beats the £15 NCP hourly charge), the food (particularly the fillet steak) was fantastic, bathroom was stunning, playstation in reception is a great idea, satellite television and brochure about Bristol in the room was a nice touch, a safe in the room is handy.
A good hotel and great value for money. Fantastic breakfast and location.
I have stayed at the Novotel recently several times on business. For me, it simply gave me what I needed - a comfortable place to spend the night.
We stayed at this hotel in February 2004 in the last few weeks of it being owned by Holiday Inn when it could be described as being OK but very traditional and somewhat outdated.
Ny wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night in order to attend a colleague's retirement function. We booked a superior and was not over impressed with it. I would rate it on par with a Holiday Inn standard room. The room itself was very clean as was the hotel. The staff on the reception desk did not speak/understand English very well, which made communication difficult, especially when we had promblems trying to gain access to our room. I thought £12.00 per person for breakfast was too expensive. One other thing to be wary of. on checking out we were charged £24.00 for breakfasts we did not have. It was probably an oversight, but it's worth checking your final bill before signing the credit card bill.
We stayed for two nights at the Novotel and thought the room was very good value for money. I got an internet rate of about £50 per room per night.
Most uncomfortable bed ever!
I stayed at the 'newly' refurbished Novotel in Bristol for one night in March. The decor in the room was neutral but badly finished. All of the furnishings were of poor quality and looked cheap, the bathroom was tiny with minimal toiletries which were inadequate and hard toilet roll! The worst thing of all was the bed - it was so hard and the sheets so starched that I only managed an hour's sleep. Ignore the 4* rating on this hotel, it's awful, it's more like a Travel Inn or Express by Holiday Inn, avoid this hotel if you can - stay at one of the Bristol Marriotts or The Brigstow.
Stayed at this central (expensive) hotel with a small group of work colleagues. Having booked twin rooms, as we usually do for work trips, we were shocked to discover, on arrival in Bristol (after a 4 hour car journey) that the "twin" rooms were in fact made up of a double bed and a sofabed. This is the Novotel standard throughout Europe, but, as we pointed out, they failed to point that out. How do you decide which of the two of you sleep on the sofa bed with the wafer thin mattress?? In my case it caused real upset and caused my roomie to storm out of the hotel! I'd thought we should flip a coin for the decent bed!! The hotel is undergoing major refurbishment, (lobby was a building site when we got there) but the rooms look lovely, contemporary, clean, neutral colours etc.. shame about the sofabed. Staff were struggling with their English on reception which made the situation all the more frustrating. We were compensated with a drinks voucher each. Good location, nice bar.
Perfectly good hotel
Great base for exploring Bristol - about 5/10 minutes walk to the Galleries, 10 minutes brisk walk to the Hippodrome. Own free car park underneath the hotel with plenty of free spaces, friendly staff, clean room, serviced daily. Didn't use the facilities of bar/restaurant so cannot comment on these, but with breakfast at £11 pp, it had better be good!!! We're returning to Bristol again in May and will be staying at the same hotel - got a great rate of £50 per room per night, booked with active hotels, altho this has now gone up to £65 per room, but inc breakfast (making breakfast £7.50 pp...a little cheaper!!!!)
