Positive Reviews

Good location

Guests rate the location of the Wellington highly, often mentioning the short walk to the stadium where sports fans can catch a Bristol Rovers game. Guests also enjoy the proximity of the city centre. Those guests without a car found it simple to reach via public transport.

Enjoyable dining

Reviews indicate that whether you stick to the continental breakfast or pay a little extra for the full English, an enjoyable start to your day is on the cards. Plus, guests who ate lunch or dinner were impressed, with many finding the food beautifully presented and flavoursome.

Well presented rooms

Guests are complimentary about the standard of the bedrooms at the Wellington, typically finding the decor stylish and modern and the surroundings spotlessly clean. There are minor issues such as a lack of low lighting and a fair distance between the mirror and a plug socket but, nonetheless, guests are impressed.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi could be better

A small number of guests mention that they found the Wi-Fi signal was a little spotty and subject to regular disconnection. The signal appears to be good in the pub itself but a little weak in the bedrooms for some guests at least.

Minor noise

Reviews suggest that there is some minor traffic noise to contend with. To be fair, though, this only seems to apply to the rooms situated at the front of the property. Rear rooms are often described as quiet.

Steep stairs

Guests occasionally mention that there are steep and narrow stairs leading to the bedrooms. This makes carrying luggage a little awkward. Also, the rooms may be inaccessible to guests with mobility issues.
