No request was too much, no question unanswered
Venue Service

By Laura and Geoff, on 05 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 24 Nov 2018

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.

I would definitely recommend The Bristol Hotel

The Bristol were just so wonderful
Venue Service

By Laura & Ross, on 26 May 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Apr 2017

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!

Our beautiful Christmas Wedding at The Bristol
Venue Service

By Michaela and Andy, on 26 May 2017Date of Wedding - 23 Dec 2016

We have just had the most beautiful wedding day and our reception at The Bristol was truly wonderful. The staff could not have done any more for us if they had tried and were attentive and genuinely wanted us to have the best time. From the moment we booked they listened to what we wanted and delivered the perfect reception, I have had so many wonderful comments from our guests about the quality of the food and the helpfulness of the staff, thank you to Bethan and the team and I can’t recommend you all enough…

Great Hotel and Friendly Staff
Venue Service

By Sandra, on 05 Jan 2015

I held my wedding reception here in 2014, and it was perfect. The co-ordinator Jenny was fabulous - very friendly and polite and a brilliant communicator. She consulted me with what she had done and what was still left to do so I was aware of everything before the day so it was completely stress free. She listened to exactly what I wanted and the price was very good too. The food, the décor and the staff were all first class. The hotel were able to accommodate specific dietary needs for my guests and the day ran smoothly. I would highly recommend this hotel for events.

The food is still being raved about both for the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet. Thankyou very much for making our day so wonderful.

Wedding Anniversary Stay Review
Venue Service

By Bria, on 05 Jan 2015

Just wanna say thank you all ever so much we both had a lovely evening yesterday. All the staff made us feel as special as we felt getting married at the hotel last year. The meals were delicious and my desert was fantastic. After leaving the restaurant I was so stuffed and just wanted to relax.....we headed to our room and to my surprise it was the Bridal Suite again, which I didn't expect (got a little emotional, blame it on early pregnancy hormones lol) It was so lovely to spend our first anniversary in the same room which we spent on the first night we became Husband and Wife. (if that makes sense) We are so Happy that we chose The Bristol Hotel as our wedding venue as it stood out from the rest. I look forward to returning again next year for our 2nd year anniversary (but will defo be booking 2nights in the suite as I didn't want to leave this morning.) Thank you all once again for welcoming us back and being as wonderful as ever. The staff are all excellent and make your hotel my favourite in Bristol. P.S. The Anniversary card at dinner was a special added bonus. I do love little things like that. Really appreciate it.

Feedback from the new Mr & Mrs
Venue Service

By Ellie, on 05 Jan 2015

I would like to thank you personally Lieha for all your hard work and dedication ensuring our wedding went as smooth as possible. A couple who were very anxious due to being let down from their previous venue you made us feel confident and secure explaining all the steps, sending emails to see how the wedding planning is going and whether you could be of any assistance. You helped us create a unique personal wedding and took on any ideas we had and worked with us to make it happen. With our busy family lifestyle our meetings were arranged around times that suited us and Lieha would happily stay later so we could still meet. Me and my husband can not thank you enough our wedding would have not gone as smoothly if it wasn't for your expertise, patience and of course that efficient wedding plan. Peter and the team did a fantastic job on the day the service was of high standard and organised, the food was out of this world and even our fussy guests enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend anyone who is considering having their wedding reception at The Bristol hotel lovely dedicated team in a beautiful hotel.

We were lucky enough to win the amazing prize of a wedding at The Bristol Hotel and I really can't praise the hotel and staff enough. From the minute we won and up until our wedding day we have been looked after so well, especially by Lieha Parry our wonderful wedding coordinator, nothing was too much trouble for her at all. The wedding day itself was truly magical, every last detail was taken care of by Lieha and Peter who we really feel both went above and beyond on our day. Our guests have contacted me to say what an amazing wedding venue The Bristol Hotel is and what a wonderful day they all had. We really cannot thank you all enough, the hotel, the staff and of course Lieha and Peter you really did give us a day to remember for the rest of our lives.

Dear Lieha & all the team at The Bristol Hotel, We would like to thank you for our wedding afternoon tea on the 9th of August 2014. My husband and I and our guests all enjoyed themselves, especially the cakes. Once again, thank you to the team.

I am writing a (belated) letter to thank you very much for the excellent service provided at my daughter's recent wedding on the 25th of May 2014. It was one of the best weddings I have ever been to - although I may be a bit biased - and many of the guests agreed with me. The pre-wedding planning was expertly done by your events manager Jenny and on the day Oscar ensured that everything ran like clockwork, nothing was too much trouble for them and they both accommodated every little tweak and adjustment XXX and XXX wanted to make. The price of the wedding package was amazing especially considering all the things that were included. The wedding breakfast was absolutely delicious and, again, lots of the guests have told me how impressed they were with the quality and quantity of the food. The waiting staff are also to be complimented for their expertise, working so hard to deal with every request in a friendly, polite and efficient manner. The experience was further enhanced by the lovely piano music, please thank the pianist for me. The hotel rooms were extremely comfortable, the hotel decor beautiful and the location alongside the harbour provided a perfect opportunity for photographs. Even the sun shone brightly. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Bristol Hotel to anyone planning a wedding or having a break in Bristol and I would be happy for you to use all of this letter in your future publicity.
