The Bristolis located in the heart of the city of Bristol, right on the vibrant Harbourside, with only the pretty – and pedestrianised – historic cobbled Narrow Quay separating it from the waterfront.
Housed in a distinctive 1960s building, recognised by RIBA as a prime example of the Modern architectural movement, the chic airy interiors display modern lines, cool colours and contemporary furniture.
The River Grille restaurant, with its perfect for people watching floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Harbourside, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, while The River Lounge & Bar is the perfect spot for a morning coffee, light lunch, traditional afternoon tea or evening cocktails; The Shore Café Bar is an informal stand-alone bar with big screens for watching sports and live music at weekends.
The Bristol’s 187 rooms and suites are among the most luxurious in the city, with each one styled, furnished and equipped for supreme comfort; the deluxe rooms and juniors suites have additional luxuries such as media hubs and Nespresso coffee machines.
Many of the city’s main attractions are close by, including the contemporary arts centre known as the Arnolfini and M Shed (the museum for all things Bristol), SS Great Britain (built in the city by Brunel), and We the Curious (Britain’s largest and most exciting interactive science centre).
Just to the north of the hotel lie the main shopping areas. Broadmead and Cabot Circus, much of which are pedestrianised, are home to over 100 shops, including well-known High Street brands,while quirky individual shops can be found on Park Streetand in the covered St Nicholas Market.
Always check the Visit Bristol website (www.visitbristol.co.uk) when planning a visit to the city, as it provides information on a wide variety of events taking place, such as the Harbour Festival, the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and Eat Drink Bristol Fashion. Even just walking around the city, you’re quite likely to encounter a pop-up show or an open exhibition, such is the creative energy that pulses through Bristol.
In the evenings, various venues offer a wide range of entertainment. The Bristol Old Vic presents plays old and new, while the Bristol Hippodrome specialises in hosting many West End shows; Colston Hall and St George’s put on music from classical to contemporary, as well as talks and comedy. For art house cinema, head to The Watershed.
