My husband and I stayed at the Marriott for a weekend in July. The hotel building is very impressive and we were given a slick experience at check-in. The room was clean and very spacious. Bed was extremely comfortable. I only negative comment I would be able to make is about the breakfast room service. Unfortunately, my husband's order was... More

Like the title says, if you are travelling with a baby, this is the hotel to stay in. I travel an awful lot for work, and a reasonable amount for my family, and I don't think i have ever been as impressed as I was when I walked into my room at this hotel. A bit of background first, I... More

For its age, this is a very well maintained, clean and comfortable hotel. Our room (superior) was well appointed including a fridge and coffee filter as well as the standard tea/coffee/toiletries. It was clean and well prepared. Check in is a doddle as is parking, they have a large car park, a big bonus for such a central position, at... More

I was very surprised by the sub-par (to say the least) of this Marriott. I am traveling with my 14 year old son, we arrived late and starving. Our focus was checking in and eating. Food was good at bar, thank goodness we did not have to walk anywhere. As we arrived, there were many many drunk people all over... More

We arrived at the Bristol Marriott Royal on a hot and sweltering afternoon, we hit the lobby, its absolutely beautiful, grand and very pleasing to the eye. We had to wait 5 minutes to check in, at which point the concierge, approached us with ice cold refreshments for free. Was nice to have that little detail, we have 2 young... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Someone wrote "stuck in a time warp" as their review - I have to agree wholeheartedly.

Whilst he hotel staff were fine, the leisure club is a diffrent story! The service is utterly rude, obnoxious and pure ignorant. The facilities are dirty, ran down and put of date. You have to pay for lockers, towels and the towels smell of cooking fat. Disgusting place and disgusting attitudes, will never use it again and will pass on... More
