Owner Response
BWHB, Managing Director at BEST WESTERN Hotel Bristol, responded to this review
Thanks for your review. Many valid points expressed which I would be foolish to challenge. We have always re-invested as much as possible but you will be pleased to know that we will be accelerating that process with a major refurbishment programme commencing this autumn. At least 16 bedrooms will be revitalised by the spring plus some of our public areas too. We welcome comments from all guests so that we can get a feel for their concerns.
