Good old fashioned ambiance. Good but tight underground parking. A good location for the harbour side attractions and nearby theatres. We found the rooms very comfortable and the buffet breakfast excellent. Highly recommended.

Just stayed here 1 night with my family. Lovely rooms. Good pool. Staff very friendly. Overall an excellent stay. Will return next year. Walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We were on vacation in the UK and made a stop in Bristol (after Stone Henge and before the White Cliffs!). We're Marriott people so this property made sense on paper. But to start, you need to realize that getting here with a car in November 2015, as the work day was ending, was a NIGHTMARE. The road construction, traffic...

I attended a three day conference here. The room was a package with the conference, so to be fair, I was expecting a lousy room. I received a moderate offering, which was disability accessible, so large, but vey dated and could do with some proper cleaning around the bathroom fittings. Ground floor view of the adjacent main road 5 metes...

Flew back from Nice (AC Marriott) to Bristol and stayed overnight. Not my first stay at this hotel but it was disrupted by Halloween and a wedding party. Great location if you want to explore Bristol but not a cheap option - the rooms are tired, the tea bags minimal and the bar prices mouth watering.

You couldn't really pick a better spot as a tourist to discover central Bristol In some respects that is the Hotel's achilles heel because I expect it is nearly always full hence Marriott don't have to work hard at it It felt a bit faded round the edges. It needs a lick of paint and a general tarting up In...

Our second visit to this hotel, and it will be our last. This time we found ourselves on the third floor in a room overlooking the river - with noise on both nights which lasted until 3am and 4am. Why?, because the double glazing is useless and the hotel know it which is why they provide earplugs in their rooms!...

Our conference of about 160 people was i believe the only one on during our stay. The biggest room was a little crowded for this number perhaps would have been less so with a different arrangement of tables. The conference room was too hot for much of the time when sat near the middle and too cold with a serious...
