We arrived for a family wedding at noon and despite being very early, four rooms were found for us, all together. Reception was very friendly and helpful. Our only criticism was the service in Walter's Restaurant - an hour between courses despite most people having eaten before we arrived. An item left behind was quickly found and despatched.

The Marriott is so close to many of Bristol's delightful attractions such as the impressive floating harbour. I stayed for two nights using Marriott Elite points so only paid for breakfast. The hotel was fully-booked and I was given a room on the lower-ground floor, however, because of its location you still end up looking down on the road outside... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights using our Tesco Clubcard vouchers. We were first time visitors to Bristol, and had timed it to co-incide with the Internation Balloon Fiesta. According to our paperwork, check in was 4pm. However when we arrived at 12, to leave our bags, reception staff informed us our room was ready and so... More

This is a charming historic hotel. The rooms are nicely done and are very spacious. The food and the open wine were excellent! My wife and i had a three-course dinner, and it was a memorable experience. The servcie was very good which is not always the case in the UK. The breakfast fare was well done.

You get what you pay for. This hotel isn't cheap but everything was perfect. We picked it because we wanted a central hotel with parking, with a good trip advisor rating. The beds were comfortable, no noise at night, friendly staff, lovely breakfast and the added bonus of a gym and swimming pool done in a 'roman baths' style! I'm... More

We stayed here for one night and from the start the stay was excellent. Very friendly staff on reception and in the bar. The room was very spacious and clean. We made use of the sauna, jacuzzi and pool which was set underneath the hotel and felt extremely relaxed afterwards. The parking is convenient underneath the building and not too... More

We stayed two nights in the Bristol Royal Marriott. It was very good. Reception and the concierge most helpful, I enjoyed the complimentary glass of wine early evening. The location is absolutely terrific for tourists with on site parking and easy walking access to the docks, many restaurants etc. There is a fabulous pool, much more luxury and larger than... More

I stayed here for 1 night on Business, it was my first time in Bristol and the one way system is so busy but I found the hotel straight away. With an underground car park the hotel is very easily accessible. Its right in the centre of everything. I ordered room service which was FAB and arrived within 15 minutes... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times and I always look forward to returning and am never disappointed. The hotel is central, located in a beautiful part of the city, has very friendly and accommodating staff, and offers one of the best breakfast buffets (in terms of both quality and variety) that I've seen at a hotel. The rooms are... More

First, the positives: -It's got onsite parking (although the chap in front of us had a Jag XJ and seemed to be having great difficulty parking...) -It's in a very good location. Good, now that they're out of the way, let's get on to the meat of the review - the many things that I'd class as "improvement opportunities": -It... More
