The Bristol Hotel Harbourside

About

*** The Bristol Hotel is delighted to be re-opening on Monday 17 August. Please read the Doyle Collection's Rest Assured Programme for more information on the safety changes they have made. ***

The Bristol is part of a family owned collection of luxury and urban hotels, providing modern style and warmth in the waterside creative quarter of Bristol. With its modernist façade and warm contemporary design, it enjoys an unbeatable waterfront location in the heart of one of the UK’s most exciting and eclectic cities, as well as a central role in the local business community. It has been named as best city break hotel in the South West by The Sunday Times ‘100 best British Hotels’ 2018

Bedrooms
187 rooms with harbour or city views provide the perfect city centre haven.  

Harbourside
The lively harbourside position ensures The Bristol is at the heart of a thriving creative hub, perfectly placed to access theatres, museums and art galleries; shopping in Cabot Circus; local attractions like the Clifton Suspension Bridge and SS Great Britain; and Bristol's aerospace, engineering and financial services companies. It is your front door step to exploring a slice of the city.

River Lounge and River Grille
Open to both residents and non-residents, The River Grille Restaurant with its lofty dimensions, exquisite floor-to-ceiling windows and harbourside views, enjoys a strong reputation locally. With a menu that changes with the seasons it has something for everyone and is particularly known for its signature barbecued steaks and fish dishes, not to mention the ever-present chocolate fondant - a must for dessert lovers. The River Lounge with its cosy and relaxing ambience not only provides the perfect spot for pre and post dinner drinks, but also a respite from the stresses of the day where you can relax over a coffee or light bite lunch. Due to the views and relaxed feel, afternoon tea is a particularly popular choice as you can sit back, indulge and watch the world go by.

Meetings and Events
Against the attractive harbour backdrop sits the hotel’s fully dedicated meetings & events centre, which has a separate entrance and its own lobby and lounge area. Offering nine elegantly appointed event spaces, generous lobby and break-out areas, the best in technology and the dexterity to handle any kind of event from sales conferences to executive board meetings, training seminars to interviews and weddings to Christmas parties, The Bristol ensures that doing business is always a pleasure.  

The hotel has always been a firm favourite with Bristolians and visitors alike. Its unique location and lively ambience, coupled with an exceptionally warm welcome and ‘can do’ service, ensures that The Bristol becomes a home from home. Throughout the hotel, the ethos is one of real warmth and thoughtfulness, delivered by a dedicated and professional team. The definition of success is for guests to feel that the hotel is more akin to a home and therefore will want to return again and again.
