What more do you need
It was good! We were running late for check in and called them and they said the latest they could stay but also if it was undoable for us they would try and stay to make sure we got in! The bed was surprisingly comfy, when you stay there you’d know what I mean! But brilliant stop over OH also if you’re new to Bristol, Gloucester Road (the road leading up to the crafty cow) is pretty vibrant so would choose that over the city past 9pm
