BWHB, Managing Director at BEST WESTERN Hotel Bristol, responded to this review
On reading your review my heart sank. How could we make it any worse? It was obviously human error on our part to allocate your room near that function room for which I am very sorry. It didn't help that we have a number of rooms out of service due to our refurbishment. I'm also disapointed that the room was not warm enough for you. We have recently installed a new boiler which other guests have commented does make the hotel much warmer. I wish you had mentioned this during your stay when my team would have taken action to remedy matters. No hotelier wants any guest to have a bad stay and I urge all readers of this site not to suffer in silence when things aren't right - tell someone immediately. I deliberately put my mobile number on our bedroom comment form so guests can call me. I will respond more fully to your comments by post.

dated, tired , depressing , in desperate need of updating

29/01/2016 smk_045, Kent, United Kingdom

The hotel is very dated and tired. Considering its a best Western hotel I was very disappointed upon arrival. The rooms decor is like stepping back in time to the 1960s. Some serious funds needs to be... more

It is disappointing to learn that you did not like the room you were allocated. I am having difficulty in agreeing with your description of the decor. The furniture is solid wood from a reputable hotel manufacturer and this design is still one of their available ranges. I'm sorry you also did not notice the new bed and other recently purchased fittings. It is also a pity you did not accept the offer of viewing alternative rooms to find one to your liking. There is always an opportunity to spend more and I am pleased to say that by Easter we hope to have completed the refurbishment of 14 bedrooms, upstairs corridors and a ground floor lounge.

Great location

Situated on the seafront the hotel is wonderfully located. I was only staying one night, but I was most impressed with the room size, it was more like a suite. The TV was rather small but the WiFi was... more

Thanks for posting a review about your recent stay with us. I'm sorry that you meal in the bar was not to your satisfaction - I have already spoken to our Chef. It was good to hear that you thought the Breakfast was excellent. I am pleased that you will consider visiting us again as on your return you will notice the efforts of our winter refurbishment.

Excellent value and location

Really enjoyed our stay here. Although it was for one night and a Christmas party everything was good. The room was quite large and had great sea views and was very clean and warm. The Christmas meal ... more
