This is a grand looking old city hotel in need of major updating (same carpet since Queen Vic's last visit). Note garage is found by pulling onto College Green, the post code took me to the delivery entry in back, facing th e aquarium. Parking is £16 overnight. We must have gotten a trainee at reception...wooden, painfully slow, and a... More

This was a lovely place to stay, rooms were clean and comfortable. We never used the pool so can't comment on that. Breakfast was buffet style and staff were happy to allow us to take some fruit and croissants away for our journey, along with take away cups. It says online that the parking next to the hotel is usually... More

My husband and I stayed here whilst attending our granddaughter's graduation. Being graduation week the hotel was very busy nevertheless the service was excellent. Reservations and the front desk were particularly helpful when we needed an early check-in, in order to get ready for the graduation ceremony. Check-in was 3.00 p.m. but we needed to be suited and booted by... More

I spent a night here back in May as part of long weekend break. I was so impressed with this Marriott !!For me it was a hotel that was modern but still very much traditional....its hard to find that in hotels these days. Great location if you are visiting the city or nearby Bath. Great service, large rooms, beautiful building.... More

We stayed for one night last Thursday for our daughters graduation. The room was spacious and clean and the beds were comfortable. The bath was enormous and the towels huge and fluffy. The location is very central within walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants. We paid the discounted pre booking price of £10 for breakfast (it would have... More

Marriott college green is the best hotel in Bristol city centre. Comfortable and spacious rooms. Clean and well presented. Free parking is fantastic as most other hotels in the area charge and city centre parking costs £30+ per day. Price is very good and there is Starbucks coffee served in the bar. A Tesco metro is across the street so... More

My daughter graduated this week from Bristol University - a special time. The hotel was very busy as would be expected with two universities in the city both with graduation ceremonies on the same days. The welcome by the reception staff could not have been better. Indeed all the staff were great and could not be faulted. So why not... More
