This Grade II-listed Victorian edifice was built in the 1860s in the fashionable Italianate Renaissance style. Originally occupied by shops at ground floor level, the splendid 5-storey building is saturated with fascinating history. Having survived the relentless Blitz air-raids during WW2, it now stands as a symbol of luxury in the centre of Bristol.


This stunning room features an intricately-designed white arched and coved ceiling embellished with crystal chandeliers, and it has its very own bar area too! Whilst not being as large as the Wessex Suite, it can still seat up to 250 guests for a reception.

Reception Capacity – 250

The Wessex Suite

As the Grand Hotel’s largest function space, The Wessex Suite can accommodate up to 400 guests for a formal reception meal, or 500 seated for a wedding ceremony.

Ceremony Capacity – 500

Reception Capacity - 400

Further hospitality rooms include the Marlborough, Devon and Duchess Suites, each of which is ideally suited to smaller, more intimate occasions with 50 guests or fewer.

Planning Services

The Grand Hotel’s expert wedding events team specialise in helping you to plan your event. After all, who knows how the venue works better than them, or which flowers, decorations etc would suit it perfectly - and of course, where to source them?

Catering and Accommodation

Catering at The Grand Hotel is the responsibility of the hotel’s in-house catering team. Servicing the Tyrells Restaurant and Marlows Bar all day, every day, experienced chefs and waiting staff know how to cater for large occasions at high pace and quality.

What our customers say

  • Father of the Bride

    We could not speak highly enough of the outstanding and impeccable service we have received from this hotel on the occasion of our daughter's wedding. They worked as a team which went above and beyond our high expectations. It would be wrong to mention individuals as everyone one was exceptional. You can trust them with this special occasion.

  • Tony

    This was the base for a family weeding. It is nicely situated, just around the corner form the Registry Office. The room for the wedding breakfast was well food was good. Children were well accommodated. Staff excellent. Absolutely no complaints - although getting out of their car park was a bit of a game.

  • Nigel – 13/08/2016

    Loved the hotel great set up for weddings, rooms are spacious clean and tidy, just loved the buffet breakfast and as my partner has said in another review…yes, Paul is a lovely charming man, and very helpful…an asset to the hotel.
