Welcome to The Bristol! Anyone spending any length of time in Bristol is likely to come across The Bristol. Sitting pretty on the quayside of the Floating Harbour, this luxury Bristol hotel is surrounded by the best of Bristol's Old City and maritime history: the Bristol Old Vic and the beautifully restored Queens Square, Bristol Cathedral and At Bristol (across Pero's Bridge), and of course The Arnolfini, Bristol's celebrated contemporary arts centre is right next door. For all these reasons, The Bristol is hard to avoid, even by visitors who are staying elsewhere. Those who do stay at our hotel in Bristol get to experience our great location, greatly reduced overnight car park rates of £5 at the adjacent NCP, the fresh, modern luxury of our bedrooms, and the chic cuisine and quayside ambience of The River Grille and Shore Café Bar. Make sure you are among them and choose The Bristol, the finest Bristol Hotel!

My mum and I stayed at The Bristol Hotel as part of her 80th birthday celebrations. We had tickets to see a show at the Hippodrome and the location of this hotel was perfect. It was within easy walking distance. I cannot thank the hotel staff enough for their kind attention

Good location for Hippodrome. Whilst the room was comfortable it was very cramped so i wouldn't want to be staying there more than one quick night. Service good. Overall the hotel was looking a bit tired.

We had a very good Christmas lunch there a couple of years ago. If you live in Alveston, you might be wise to book a room as well...

is the local parking multi storey as I have a van
Yes it's a ncp carpark next to the hotel. I cannot remember if there was a height restriction. But the parking charge is 5 quid for your stay if ur a guest at the hotel as opposed to 32 quid per day if ur not a guest. Would be worth a phone call to check the height restrictions if any
