... a bit before calling it a night and heading back to the hostel for some much needed laundry time. Interesting facts: Love spoons are hand carved wooden gifts in the shape of a spoon that are given to loved ones. The different carvings represent different hopes and wishes of the giver and receiver. This is where the term spooning comes from! Afternoon tea is ...
So we left Cornwall and followed a huge, yellow gibbous moon. Saw the sun rise over Stonehenge. The mist pooled and we wondered - briefly - why were leaving beautiful south-west England.
At Fleet services at 5am, we had a great surpirise as Dawn's dad ( Umpa) was there ...
After breakfast (scrambled eggs and dark hot chocolate made from melted chocolate), we headed to Bath about 20 minutes away. Hop On, Hop Off Bus: - Bath World Heritage Site - Romans (population approx. 600) 47AD; by 410AD Romans gone, then Medieval; 18th Century (population 3 000) Georgian; today population approx. 85 000 (2 universities) - in Georgian times, tea was considered a high brow drink and ...
... to supply the restaurants which lined the boardwalk. We decided, however, not to grace one of these establishments with our presence, instead heading to the supermarket to buy dinner. We then got lost in the many narrow streets within the Palace. We eventually located a bell tower which we climbed for the low price of £1. After overcoming a bit of vertigo, we were able to fully enjoy the amazing city laid out before us. ...
I am officially, K E Foote, BA Hons Photography graduate with a second class degree.
So all of this traveling back to the UK was primarily to graduate with my course-mates. I spent a lovely day in Exmouth with Dan, met his best mate, met his Nan, and saw the new King be introduced to the world. All the time I spent with Dan went really quickly, and before I knew it, we were on a train to Bristol, suit and dress in hand, going to meet my parents at ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Hotel Bristol City Centre
My requested 'quiet' room was on the 10th floor facing the main road not the quieter park side. I was also very near to a family with a crying baby! However it was clean and comfy with everything I needed and I slept reasonably well. I prefer baths to showers but if I had waited for it to fill I would have still been there after checkout time! The shower had to do.
What a great surprise walking into this hotel. The pictures on the Marriott web site don't give this hotel the appearance it deserves.
I agree with most of what's been said already. Rooms are decent, nice bath - pretty much on par with most 4* hotels in the US - Marriotts, Hyatt, Hilton, etc... I won this through PL, so the value is exceptional.
Don't be put off by the exterior
A quality hotel indeed - all communal areas seem to have recently been refurbished and the room was decent, complete with a bathroom 100% free of mould (a rarity in most UK hotels), and a potent heating / air conditioning unit.
Seems to work out quite a bit cheaper than the Royal Marriott and although the room was smaller, it was better decorated than any that I have ever been allocated at that hotel. If you're not worried about a grand looking exterior and a slightly more central location, choose this one over the Royal.
Nice leisure facilities but noisy rooms on road side
standard marriott with convenient location for city centre offsetting brutal looks. excellent sauna and steam room - properly hot which is often not the case - and nice pool if not too many people are in. rooms overlooking the urban expressway are noisy - park side is much quieter. £7.50 for parking in adjacent NCP - little secure street parking around.
First impressions and the exterior of this hotel is plain ugly but do not be put off. With a recently completed refurbishment, great service and relaxed atmosphere, the inside common parts of the hotel were excellent. The rooms are very comfortable in the corporate marriot style and the breakfast fine. Location is good for the city centre although Clifton is a considerable walk away. We really enjoyed our stay and will be coming back.
A Great Hotel
We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and were very impressed. The staff were excellent and extremely helpful. The hotel itself is beautiful and the food excellent. A great location and lovely rooms. Would definitely return.
I travel weekly to Bristol on business and find myself at the Marriott City Centre for the proximity to my office and the reward points. Truthfully, you'd find much better locations for hotels in Bristol - the Marriott Royal, the Brigstow, Jurys, and Hotel Du Vin are all better located. The Broadmead shopping area and the park nearby - while nice during the day - don't harbor the best of the locals at night. But the City Centre Marriott is near-completion of a full refurbishment - the beds and rooms are now very comfortable. The fitness centre is large for a hotel and very-well equipped. The executive lounge is perfect for reading the paper on your own or meeting with business colleagues. The bar is usually lively. The restaurant food is good - but the room service menu is lacking. I love the staff - they are so friendly and helpful even if a bit inexperienced. Make sure to request a room on the park-side for less noise level.
I had booked into this hotel for 3 consecutive nights for a conference held at the hotel. The first night was overbooked, so I was transferred to a hotel in Wales! The second night they had overbooked and transferred me to a hotel elswhere in the city centre - and forgot to tell them about it so that I was double charged for meals. At last, on the third night I was able to stay at the actual hotel. The conference facilities were also poor - noisy and cold. I am amazed that this hotel can charge so much for such poor service.
