4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

very nice hotel - english atmosphere - the rooms are on different levels - so the numbers in ground floor are starting from 1000 .- everything lower is midlevel or basement - so view is not so excellent.... The Walters Restaurant is nice as well as the breakfast . so for some days in Bristol I think its best choice

On the night I decided to stay the lobby was full a loud partying wedding group. Most of the men were coming and going through the front door, down the road to the closest pub and coming back drinking beer. The management of the marriot should have taken control of the situation, which was clearly making many patrons nervous.

The staff were really welcoming and friendly, from reception to any you walked past. Nice swimming pool and steam room. Breakfast was good, especially the made to order omelettes. Cocktails in the bar also nice, at the time it was buy one get one free! Definitely would recommend. Good value for money.

Good location and comfy beds. Seemingly ok restaurant. However, much the same as many city centre old buildings; fallen from grace. Bathroom shabby and poorly renovated, no real areas to sit down and relax, noisy, £35 per night parking etc etc.

The hotel is well situated if you plan on visiting the SS Great Britain, as it's quite convenient to the waterfront and ferries. The location is also close to decent eating near Hannover Quay. Unfortunately, the rooms are tired, and the bathrooms need updating. If you can overlook that, it's worth it for the location and car park. The exterior... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night during a birthday weekend away. This is an ideal location for visiting the city. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had snacks in the bar which were good. We also ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. There was a very good choice. The staff were very attentive, in some... More

Okay, so I attended this hotel back in October and thought it was okay but the bed was quite uncomfortable. Anyway I thought it was a one off and booked it again for Jan30th. When we arrived it was fine, however the glasses in the bathroom had stains on (like toothpaste stains) and the bath had pubes in 😟. Both... More

Excellent one night stay. This is a definate cut above the budget brand hotels that i would usually opt for. Classy atmosphere and friendly staff. The gratis spa leisure facilities are a nice extra. I would recommend for couples having a special weekend in bristol. I also recommend the breakfast highly....ensure you arrive hungry!!

Excellent hotel - staff were very attentive (glass of wine on check in was nice touch). Rooms a little bit dated but very spacious, good facilities. Full range of food for breakfast. Lots of space to work (both in room and in public areas). Excellent location for food etc (Harbourside 5 mins walk). Would definitely stay again - for work... More
