A beautiful hotel right in the center of Bristol. In close proximity to St Nicholas market in the old city, the section that wasn't destroyed in the war. The hotel is in a beautiful old Georgian building and has a lovely restaurant inside it

First to Review

The area around Corn Street can be full of hustle and bustle, so it feels splendid to be able to escape into this luxury hotel, which recently underwent a 9 million pound revamp. Approaching the stained glass and wrought iron entrance of The Grand makes you feel rather special, and the reception is full of warm colours. With the registry office across the road it is undeniably a good spot for a wedding and The Grand caters to this: Design Wedding Packages are available, and it was reassuring to be approached by the events managers with enthusiasm and professionalism. This is the oldest working hotel in Bristol, and hence its rooms can vary in size, shape and quirkyness. Outside the entrance the Georgian architecture combined with the cobbled streets retains an Oliver Twistian authenticity. A cheerful farmer’s market occurs each week, and there are retro clothes stalls and other nick-knacks for sale in the covered St Nicholas’ Market.
