    Celebration Meal 30 Years

    from

    My wife and I got married thirty years ago on September the seventh and we held our reception at the Royal Hotel.It was very successful.

    Last Tuesday we went for a meal in the terrace restaurant to celebrate the occasion with my Daughter and her husband and of course my wife.

    The Terrace is the same room we had the reception in 30 years ago.

    We enjoyed an excellant meal with generous portions all round and very good service.

    thanks very much

    we will be back

    Not worth the price!!

    from

    Certainly not top class!!!! No porters to help with unloading or carrying baggage through very long corridors. Rooms pokey, bed VERY small double - 4'6"!! Windows don't open and bathroom very basic. Considering it's supposed to be one of the best hotels in Bristol, the standard is poor.

    Great Hotel

    from

    Spent a brilliant weekend here in June 2004. Great hotel, great rooms, friendly staff, fabulous location

    Top class luxury hotel!

    from

    Nicely located luxury hotel, very popular, and well run. Big room, with all the expected trimmings!

    Gorgeous hotel with lovely staff

    from

    Spent three nights here in early May. This hotel is truly lovely. The rooms were gorgeous - lavish and lovely baths, tea and cookies in the room, comfortable beds - just delightful. And very large for a city hotel. The common areas were beautiful as well. The staff was very pleasant and extremely helpful in providing guidance and recommendations. Breakfast was an extensive buffet and delicious. We were slightly disappointed in dinner but I think they had a limited menu that evening for some reason. Be sure to get good directions though - one way system in Bristol is quite a challenge!

    Great Hotel

    from

    A wonderful hotel, clean, great breakfast, good room service. I would go there again in a minute.

    Best breakfast

    from

    Bristol well worth visiting and it makes a great alternative base to Bath. This hotel is first-rate and my wife says its serves the best breakfast she's ever had! The hotel is a bit of a warren, lots of hallways, etc. The weekend rates can be a great deal. Take the train to Bath and pay half price of what you'd pay there for the same room.

    The royal marriott is fabulous

    from

    oh yes please submit more rubbish reviews of the bristol royal marriott..the weekend 99 deal is unbelievably good value. the breakfast is to die for..the marble floors in the foyer. the close proximity to town..don't go everyone else..it's seriously awful..the palm court restaurant doesn't even have a dj playing..sophisticated casual..just perfect for bristol

    Book at your peril

    from

    I had booked in for three nights at this hotel as i was attending a conference course here. Unfortunately they had overbooked (as they seemed to do with a few other guests) and I was relocated to a hotel in Wales. for the first night. The second night they had also over booked and I was relocated to yet another hotel. This hotel was not aware of the people paying for the meals etc., so myself and other people at the conference were overcharged for meals.The amount of hassle that this created in travelling, packing/unpacking, sorting out bills etc was simply unacceptable. The conference facilities were also draughty and noisy - not conducive to a good conference!I was paid compensation (after challenging the original derisory offer), but I will not stay at a Marriott again. This hotel in Bristol was hopeless.

    Truly lovely hotel

    from

    We visit Bristol several times a year as son is at University. The Marriott Royal is my absolute favourite and is excellent if you have children. Breakfast is fantastic, beds are super comfy, rooms big many with 2 doubles(unusual in England), location is great for getting into both Clifton and Town centre, pool complex excellent and it feels special!! Staff friendly and go out of their way. Posh lounges, afternoon tea, wood panelled lifts etc

    Although expensive in the week at the weekend it compares favourably with everything else in Bristol. If you have a Marriott rewards card its usually 99 a night-not cheap but you do get an experience for that. Not just a room

    Have also stayed at the Brigstow-very modern, great plasma screen in the bathroom-rooms a bit small though and breakfast buffet was a shambles with constant running out of food-actually cost more than the Marriott and no leisure facilities. Seemed very trendy, lots of clubbers/DJ types. Personally Im at the stage where I prefer to forgo the trendy for the thick carpet and quality beds.

The area is lovely with beautiful views of the countryside We enjoyed the drive along the narrow lines, high hedges lined the road and the hedgerows were full of cow parsley and buttercups. After another great meal we enjoyed local cheeses with a slice of Mary's Bara Brith, we have really appreciated this generous hospitality but tomorrow we move ...

    Today we went into Bath and although we had been here several times before it was still a pleasure to look around. We drove to the park and ride as usual which is very handy and then walked down to the shopping centre. Didn't buy much but had a nice lunch. There were several buskers and this statue figure had us baffled for a while. It was very cold today compared to our time ...

    ... risk of upsetting my Ecuadorian friends) I had always felt overshadowed by Peru and this visit just compounded that feeling. It was this visit to Galapagos which confirmed that. Cronyism, corruption, poor management, internal migration and environmental destruction of the islands (most by the settlers) was not what I experienced. Of course not going to the Cameroon was also a disappointment, but thats another story.

    After the two hour tour we returned to Portishead and the Windmill Restaurant for lunch where, to our surprise, our friend Margret Butcher joined us along with Bill and Keith Morton. While we waited for our food, Marta Haire, a local mixed media artist, stopped by to see me with her portfolio of photos she had taken of Blacknore Lighthouse. She very kindly invited me to select one of the photos ...
