Historical Traveller Reviews of Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre

Brilliant value

from Debrooks
From the outside, the Marriott City Centre is a blot on the landscape - a 60s pile on the edge of a dual carriageway. But the room was large and comfortable with great beds and a superb cityscape view, with the Floating Harbour below. I stayed there with my son for a bargain rate, including full breakfast. We made good use of the indoor pool (children are allowed in until 8pm, which seems very reasonable to me). My only caveat - 'Good Morning Mr Stannard' on the TV screen when we entered the room, when the only male in the party was my 8-year-old son. Still, he liked it.
Incidentally Bristol is an excellent destination for children - loads to do (SS Great Britain, the Industrial Museum, Clifton Suspension Bridge and the best hands-on Science Centre we have visited).

Good premises spoilt by very poor service

from Ralpha
The Marriott premises are very good but it is let down by abysmal service. Problems are bound to happen (although this hotel manages more than its share). But nearly every time I have had something go wrong or some failure, they have failed to put it right at the first time of asking.
The restaurant (which I only use for breakfast) is very pleasant and the breakfast choice and quality is excellent. Food in the evening is very hit and miss (more miss than hit) and overpriced. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the bed and bathroom linen is luxuriosusly good. But because of the service failures, I only go there to get some more Reward points rather than in expectation of a wholly enjoyable experience.

one night stay

from ilovecornwall
we stayed as a family,on a sat night and enquired on availabilty of pool .we all went to use it ,and were told by staff their that there was a curfew time for children,and they had five minutes,and had to get out. However, there were no other users of the pool and were told that rules were rules.
This seems that although the hotel wants family,s in for weekend breaks,they don't actually want to make them welcome.
We have made several complaints about this since,but todate have still not had a reply.

close to Bath

from MissPigi
The Marriott lives up to its name. the hotel is very nice and the beds are quite comfy. There is a tiny balcony. Bathroom is an average size with nice amenities. The staff there seem friendly, but are not so knowledgable about the restaurants. We asked for some guidance to find a restuarant one night and they sent us on a wild goose chase.

The area itself seems to be very industruial. There is some shopping a few blocks from the hotel. We never found any good restaurants to report about, sorry.

The best thing about this hotel is that it is only a 5-10 minute walk to the train station. In 15 minutes you can be in Bath, which is really quite lovely.

All in all, I would stay here again ( have to , my company pays for it). But if you have a choice as where to stay, look around , you may be able to do alot better than this property.

t mind the traffic noise outside

from jihyun
Before I begin let me tell you to book directly with Merriot if you plan to stay here, as expedia ripped me off (The deluxe room we stayed in had a price difference of over GBP20 with no breakfast).
I liked the room I stayed as they were recently renovated but the bathroom wasn't too great or clean. But for the price you pay I thought it was a steal. When I found out how much they really charge for the deluxe room at the hotel, I nearly fainted because it was so cheap!
The only problem was that all the rooms face the road so the noise outside could give you a sleepless night. I had the heater going all night to block some of the noise out and it worked.

Looks like a multi-storey car park but actually quite good

from sbishop
Looks can be deceptive, it looks bad from the outside but inside the hotel the decor is warm and inviting, the rooms are comfortable and have the facilities you'd expect, and it was pretty quiet when I stayed. Everything is conveniently situated and the staff are local and friendly. Out of five 3-5 star hotels I stayed in during the one month, this was the best. Good for functions too.

s a lovely hotel.

from sandpiper
Good points :

1. Clean hotel and rooms as that of a 4 star hotel should be.
2. Had dinner in the Bar and the hamburger was great !!
3. Pool facilities were very good and clean
4. Had no problems with the 3 lifts as mentioned in another review.
5. Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of choices.

Not so good points :

1. NCP car park @ £7.50 per nite. Not comfortable with leaving my car in a public car park. Best to park it on the far left hand side as you come up the ramp as some rooms have view to this side of the car park.

2. The air con was noisy in our room. Sound was on par with a dish washer noise. Had to turn it off at night.

Overall a good hotel if you are happy to park in an NCP car park.

Quite good actually

from hardpack
It's a good 20 min walk to Temple Meads Station. The outside looked like a horrible 1970s disaster (and it probably was, before the refurb). Concrete exterior not very inviting at first, but the inside is very inviting. Exec loung on 1st floor is quite basic and small, not much free drink on the go as in other lounges. My room was high up, but despite the double glazing it was still quite noisy from the road. Room standard was high however, in very good condition. Breakfast - the standard Marriott buffet. I'd prefer this one to the other Marriott in Bristol.

t fault it !!

from Lorelei3
Just returned from a stay at the Bristol Marriott.
Everything about this place was just right. The rooms are extremely clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and the restaurant turns out decent food too.
I would strongly recommend a stay here. The exterior isn't very attractive but the interior and quality of everything makes up for a poor facade.
In summary - the best 4 star hotel I have stayed in for a long time.

What a great hotel!!

from maccaz39
Stayed in the Marriott for the weekend. What a great place, the rooms were spotless, the food was brilliant and the service was excellent.

Top Local Tips for Bristol

Dining Walk through the park following the river (or take river taxi), cross street to cobbled thoroughfare. Lots of lovely restaurants and definitely recommend 'The Shed'. Really good value and a wide menu. The swordfish was perfect and I'll be going back to sample more dishes!

Not a nice town With the exception of the hotel's front desk we did not receive any good service in Bristol. Locals were rude and confrontational. We didn't feel safe at night and pubs and restaurants could not cope with the volume of people on an average Saturday night. Every venue had staff who were lazy and lacked attention to serve customers.

Nightlife Head to the waterfront for nightlife, oceanic great club, go to the 80's section, if your into all that. its great.
