This was the evening before the big race, the Bristol Half Marathon, and there were plenty of people about using the hotel and spa in readiness for the race. I went with my running partner and we were well looked after with decent food the night before and the restaurant opened early so that we could get our supply of carbs before the race. The staff were friendly and the service was good. The beds were not the most comfortable however but the pillows were changed when I asked them within minutes. The spa was open for us after the race for showers and a dip before the aching set in. Overall a good stay.
