About The Bristol

Sitting on the banks of the Bristol Harbourside, The Bristol is a hidden gem. Central, modern and stylish, the hotel offers couples the convenience of excellent transport links and a perfect location, as well as the elegance of a luxury venue, on a range of extremely affordable packages.

Our dedicated and experienced coordinators, in partnership with our events team on the day, provide an exceptional level of service to ensure that your special day is everything that you have ever hoped it would be.

We have launched three new packages to make your wedding day easier to plan; Diamond, Pearl and Lace. Starting from just £44.50 per person and ranging up to £64.50 per person, each package offers our couples something different, enabling us to create a bespoke wedding package as unique as they are.

We can also create completely bespoke wedding packages if our packages are not what you were looking for, and we are also able to accommodate self-catered weddings on Sundays as our Ballroom Suite has a dedicated banqueting kitchen which can be offered exclusively.

    No request was too much, no question unanswered

    My now-husband and I shortlisted The Bristol as our wedding venue due to its really handy location. When we visited we were really impressed with how modern and stylish the hotel is, and the wedding packages on offer, so we made up our minds to book very quickly!

    Camille was our wedding co-ordinator and she was excellent. The planning process was really straightforward, no request was too much, and no question unanswered.

    My two bridesmaids and I stayed at the hotel the night prior and the groom and I stayed for the wedding night. There were so many little personal / extra touches which surprised and delighted us. The rooms were well-appointed, comfortable, and with really helpful room service. Some of our relatives stayed too, and were very happy with their rooms and breakfast.

    We had a meal in the River Grille the night before the wedding, and the food was absolutely amazing. We were blown away!

    On the wedding day itself, everything we’d asked for in terms of decoration of the rooms, and the running of the day, was carried out without a hitch. The rooms looked beautiful, and the staff were all really helpful and attentive. Camille looked after us for the first part of the day, then handed over to Connor who was our main contact for the evening reception and the next day. They and the staff were all so helpful all on hand for any small requests, and they did things like room-turnaround between the wedding breakfast and evening reception very efficiently.

    All of our guests said how wonderful the food and drink was and what a fantastic time they had. For us as the bride and groom it was a perfect day. We can’t thank the team enough, particularly Camille, and Connor.

    The Bristol were just so wonderful

    The whole experience leading up to our wedding was superb service on every level! The team at the Bristol were so wonderful and The hotel it's self is warm, welcoming, clean and luxurious.

    Firstly Danielle! I can't express in worlds what an amazing service she gave us! We decided to book The Bristol after our meeting, and from that moment Danielle helped me organise my perfect day with so much ease and joy!

    Then there was Barbara, our co-ordinater, again so attentive, professional and kind, she got everything perfect! Always smiling and looking after us, she was a joy and support to have.

    The food was exceptional, we very much enjoyed our food tasters and on the day it was nothing less than fabulous! We have all been to many weddings where you have a very average and over priced meal! Not at the Bristol, our guests all mentioned how good their food was, and still are taking about it!

    All the staff at every stage from reception, bar, restaurant, clearing up, breakfast on our weekend just made us and our guests feel like they genuinely wanted to give us the best day! And it was the best day, and they all played a huge roll in making this happen and we will never forget how cared and looked after we felt!

    The Bristol Hotel will always be a very special place to us, a place I know we will visit for food and drinks regularly because of that perfect weekend!

    I don't know how to thank the staff enough for what they did, they have a job to do but the excelled in it, which makes the difference between a couple having a good wedding experience and a couple have a superbly wonderful experience!
