Where do I begin with this review? We booked a special offer weekend, 2 nights bed and breakfast and dinner on the first night for £178 in a classic room. On arrival we parked in the underground car park and made our way up to reception, where we were greeted with a very welcoming glass of wine while we checked in. We have stayed in five star hotels where this little extra touch is not provided so well done Marriott for an excellent first impression. Our room was on the top floor and was lovely and cosy and spotlessly clean. Dinner on the first night was wonderful with an excellent choice of menu and the waiting staff were really attentive. We chose room service breakfast which, although we were on the top floor of the hotel, arrived promptly and piping hot. I chose smoked haddock with poached eggs and hubby had eggs benedict and they were divine. After a full day in Bristol we returned to the cosy lounge bar for a leisurely drink before a well earned soak in our lovely corner bath. Dinner was taken yet again in the hotel restaurant where we were advised to choose the mussels for starters as they were fresh in that afternoon. We did and certainly weren't disappointed. They were delicious, and so was the rest of the meal. Once again, service was superb, the staff at this hotel certainly go the extra mile to make you feel at ease and welcome. Breakfast next morning was room service again as the hotel seemed full and we didn't fancy queuing for it. Once again, excellent, this time hubby chose steak and eggs and said they were delicious. Not having to check out until 12 was an added bonus and so we did a little more shopping before leaving. We will definitely return here. A lovely indulgent little pre-Christmas break in a beautiful hotel.
