Recent guest reviews

This hotel has plenty to offer, great location, spacious rooms, big TVs, on-site restaurant, bar and Starbucks. The restaurant served up some beautiful food, and the staff went above and beyond for us, I’m looking forward to visiting the restaurant again. The beds were very comfortable, and we had an excellent sleep. The rooms are a little tired, but very clean. There is no free WiFi which would have been nice. Will definitely visit again.

I stayed here and I had the absolute most amazing time ever the hospitality here is overwhelming they are all so gentle and sweet people that work there thank you so much for an amazing stay I recommend this to anyone breakfast was great The Bistro is amazing as well lots of local stuff to go do during the day in that area

Staying in junior suite on 10th floor . Plenty of space and comfy beds in the room . All the staff lovely including the new receptionists. The gym for city centre hotel larger than I anticipated with modern equipment. Sadly this hotel is tired, dated and in the need of modern refurbishment . Some of the largest air conditioning units I have seen in a hotel in our room. Chocolate found under the sofa from previous guest that would appear that it had been there for quite some time Junior suite on 10th floor right outside lifts so can be disturbed quite easily . Would appear that the walls are fairly thin as you can hear the TVs in the room next to you and it would appear they were not on especially loud. Park in the ncp car par next to the hotel. Nice touch from the hotel giving free voucher for drinks for getting silver Marriott membership No criticism of the staff but needs investment in the hotel

Nice rooms very good location if you want to do a lot of shopping. Great staff at the reception although the check in took ages! Also the elevators at the hotel were extremely slow. We basically stayed every time at every floor...

I have to say I use Marriott a lot; while this may not be their best hotel being a little tired, the staff and service are excellent. Regarding the room, this was comfortable and clean, but required updating. The rooms have all the usual facilities expected; tea/coffee making facilities, with the nice touch of "take-away" cups if you are in a rush, room safe, trouser press, iron, ironing board and no lack of hangers. Bar/restaurant service polite and efficient. Well located with adjacent parking discounted for guests.

I visited the Marriott with my family for my Father's birthday meal, and from start to finish the staff were all incredibly kind and accommodating! My Dad called the steak he ate the "best steak he has ever had in his life", which given he just turned 64 is really saying something!! We were served by several staff, each of whom were a joy to talk too and very attentive of our dietry requirements, including checking meals my sister could have, as she is vegan! I took note of each name badge of those who helped, so thank you John, Ben, Hannah and Toby for making my Dad's birthday one that he loved!

A great hotel with a lovely walk through the park to get to downtown Bristol. About 10-15 walk. Park can be iffy at night but also a main road as an option too. Park is great during the day. Great view from the room on 8th floor. Nice outdoor decking too on first floor

Spent two nights here. Hotel very clean. Staff very friendly. Location very good. Our room did smell a bit of cigarette smoke. We did have a small balcony , so although no smoking either in room or on balcony, I think the previous person did, therefore it smelt in the room. They did offer to change us to another room, but as we had unpacked, we stayed put. Parking is next door and it’s NCP. Which as always very expensive, it normally is £24 for 24 hours, you do get a discount if your staying at hotel, which was £17 for 24 hours. Still to expensive.

If you are expecting the typical Marriott- you are in for a dispointment; Pros- location (but seedy area) Con; Checkin- one girl said our room wouldn't be ready until 3 - five minutes later- -another girl said- "oh yes, your room is ready( this was a 2pm). Annoying, specifically after an all night flight. Room- dated with rusted balcony railing,and moldy shower. Windows are old- filthy and let in a lot of noice Bed- extremely hard- too soft pillows We were booked in for two nights and only stayed one. Would I recommend this to friends and family- absolutely not.

People complain and say this place needs updating but this place makes up for that in the breakfast they serve and the welcoming staff they have and immaculate pool facilities. They also have a wonderful bar with 2-4-1 drinks during happy hour and delicious free munchies as well. I will definitely be returning and I could not recommend this place enough especially because its about a 10 minute walk to the station and 2 minutes to the city centre!
