... I'd better hurry up and finish so I can go and watch!! I'll let the pictures do the talking again and bid you goodnight, but first a huge thanks to Ash and Soph for having us - it was a perfect day. There's nothing like an English summer day. Highlights: Liam - playing with Owen Isobel - tbc!! (She's collapsed in a heap before we could ask ...
... every 10 minutes or less. We have learned not to take the main motorways as they are fast and straight and you miss such a lot. We passed thru' small towns like Blagdon, Compton Martin, Churchill, Bishop Sutton and Banwell to name but a few. Bit more variety of house types than the Cotswolds but still mostly two storey and made of brick or stone. As we drove down the hill in to Weston Super mare we realized it was no ...
... car behind ours. The second trick was to take on the landlady's advice that the carpark buildings were as far from the centre of the city as the guesthouse was. We walked, and again the map failed us. We were looking for the Abbey and we kind of got close. A local said she could see where the Abbey was in her mind's eye and so set us off in that ...
Despite having seen tons of pictures of Stonehenge, it was pretty impressive. Beautiful day too! What they don't tell you is that once you get to the visitor center, Stonehenge is actually about...a mile maybe? from it, so you can talk or take the bus, but why take the bus on a beautiful day?!?! It was a nice walk, and I'd have liked to see Woodhenge, but there just wasn't any time. I'm glad Levi and Jake wanted to walk too.

Time to leave London and head off by train to Bristol. We didn't want to hire a car in London, so we trained it out to Bristol. We thought it would be a good base to see some of the touristy things we wanted to cross off our list. Unfortunately the weather is **** today, low threatening clouds and quite cool, surprisingly not cold just a miserable looking day. The train trip was uneventful and before you knew it we were in the lush green country of England. We ...

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
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.
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
