Travel Blogs from Bristol
So this is my first post to this blog, wide awake far too early and a very excited Chris next to me, makes a change from the usual grump on a Monday morning when he used to have to get up this early to driving back to Plymouth for work. This is my first working day ever of proper unemployment, and with my flat rented and no car and my gizmo living with mum I feel strangely free. I would like to say thanks to everyone who has helped make ...
... o'clock, Kronenbourg o'clock (ok so that one is not so British but you get the picture!) Thanks to everyone who came and made it such a special day especially those who travelled from so far with children in tow it was great to see you all. Special thanks to both our families just for being so great and to Jeremy for being the official photographer. Next stop Rio de Janeiro ...
After an easy crossing yesterday evening we made the trek from Dover to Somerset. Matchsticks in the eyes we arrived at home at 11.30pm. This morning we contemplated the task ahead of unpacking and washing everything, this was interrupted by the discovery that Coco, one of our ...
... my visit to the UK. The wedding itself took place in the Gurudwara (Sikh Temple) there, but the pre and post wedding events took place at the Four Pillars Hotel. The hotel was in a very beautiful setting. It looked like an old English Manor, surrounded by beautiful trees and meadows. They had croquet here, so my cousin, my brother and I decided to give it a try during one of the functions. I ended up getting last, but it was still fun ...
... bags and set the alarm for 5.45 ready to leave by taxi at 6.20am for the train station to get the train to Bristol for our flight to Italy ( Pisa ).
It all went smoothly so taxi, train, bus,plane followed by a walk, and a car journey meant we arrived at the Tuscany villa late afternoon. A lovely place with a large pool and surrounded by vineyards and rolling hills ............idyllic.

Historical Traveler Reviews Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel
Celebration Meal 30 Years
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!!
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.
Spent a brilliant weekend here in June 2004. Great hotel, great rooms, friendly staff, fabulous location
Top class luxury hotel!
Nicely located luxury hotel, very popular, and well run. Big room, with all the expected trimmings!
Gorgeous hotel with lovely staff
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!
A wonderful hotel, clean, great breakfast, good room service. I would go there again in a minute.
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
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
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
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.
