Not wonderful but adequate
The room was warm and comfortable, and the breakfast nicely cooked. But the showerhead was either very dirty or very rusty; the curtain was hanging off the rail; the wardrobe door with its full length mirror wouldn't open fully as it hit the chimney breast wall, thus leaving the full length mirror useless. The place was tired and in desperate need of redecoration. Car parking is horrendous, although there is a small car park at the rear accessed by a steel shutter, and they charge £6 to stay overnight. This had an old mattress and numerous bin bags deposited there which gave an air of utter neglect

Our Stay at the Washington after a gig was great
I would recommend the Washington, they had secure parking, Rooms were a good size, My brother and i shared a twin room. The Tv worked. The bathroom was clean although if you don't like bleach that would have been a problem for you.
Bed was comfy and clean. All in all i recommend it. Amazingly i got a little lost trying to find the room but once you find the right way its easy. 24hrs desk and near places to eat and a walk into town

A most enjoyable stay.
Quiet street in the Clifton area only a 5 minute walk to the Queen´s Road with its shops, trendy pubs and restaurants and a 10 minute bus trip into the centre of town (Cabot Circus shopping centre).
Attractive and comfortable period building. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is excellent. Racks Bar & Kitchen restaurant is just up the road and you get a discount from the hotel.
A most enjoyable stay.

Excellent staff, slightly disappointing accommodation
The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fine and there was a good choice. When you add the cost of parking to the room price the deal is not so good. The room was functional. It was not a bad room but somehow it was disappointing. The en suite was small and the shower was an old fashioned type. The problem is that for not much more you could get a much better room.

Very good
The hotel room was very comfortable. The facilities provided were good. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a receptionist on right through the night (for those that need assistance). I have no complaints.

Staying st the Washington, Bristol
The hotel gave us good service - a pleasant reception, an acceptable ensuite room and an excellent breakfast with excellent, friendly service. The decor of the hotel is drab and in need of updating or at least painting. We might stay here again but couldn't really recommend to friends. However it was one of the cheaper hotels on offer and therefore suited us.
