“Wonderful”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I stayed here for a conference and cannot find a single fault.
All the staff were friendly and helpful, the reception staff, the doormen, the housekeepers and the wait staff were prompt and attentive and unfailingly friendly, even when there were 3 major events going at the same time.
The room was spacious, comfy and quiet. We had a room very close to the lifts but didn't even hear other people coming and going. There was a very loud function going on on the Friday evening and I was a little concerned, but even on the mezzanine floor we couldn't hear a sound from below. (or anywhere else!) The bathroom was clean and well equipped. The aircon was lovely and quiet. I don't think I have ever slept as well in a hotel.
And the food, nothing to say beyond it was fantastic. The breakfasts, the snacks, the buffet lunches and dinner, both the formal meal and the restaurant were superb. I am several pounds heavier now than I was a week ago!
Thank you.

Room Tip: Since none of our large conference had any problems I think they must all be good!

Book a last minute room here as we were going to have a one night stay for an 80's concert were staying the Sunday night in a premiere inn but were full up when we decided to stay for two nights. Choices were then limited for hotels in Bristol as many were full. I rang to book the Marriott and managed to get a room inclusive of breakfast for £140.00. A little expensive but why not. Room had two double beds and was plenty big enough. We used the pool and steam room which was very pleasant. A little bug bear is that we had to pay to park the car but other than that a very nice break.

This is a really nice hotel, a little sprawling because it covers a couple of buildings. The rooms are really comfy and up to date, clean and air conditioned. The hotel has a great ambiance and the breakfast arrangements are good with a chef cooking eggs etc. to order. Two observations one was that there were lots of trays left in corridors that seemed to have been from the night before and the other is that the car parking seems very unwelcoming with signs that seem the threaten you if you don't pay an extortionate rate. You don't have to if you are a hotel guest, but ensure you tell reception as soon as you arrive.

Just a quick review to say how great the staff were. On a conference nearby the hotel was great. Very well looked after and full of staff with friendly faces. The conference i attended was about customer service and the staff at hotel should have presented.

The hotel sits right in the center of where you want to be and across the street from the harbor. The hotel itself is a bit grand and rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was full with eggs cooked to order. Service was very good with all needs accommodated. There is a great tea room and coffee seemed to be presnt in the lobby all day. Very enjoyable visit.
