What our customers say

  • Michaela and Andy Smith - 12/2016

    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.

  • Natalie and Thomas Lawrence - 17/09/16

    A huge thank you to you for all your help on our wedding day. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and we couldn't have wished for a better day. Danielle was brilliant and very helpful in the lead up to our wedding, every detail was how we imagined it and the whole wedding was completely stress free! All our guests commented on how delicious the food was and how lovely the room setting was with the wedding breakfast held in the River Grille restaurant. Me, my husband and all our guests were very happy with the presentation of the hotel and how helpful the staff were. We would highly recommend The Bristol to anyone looking for the perfect wedding day!

  • Hayley and Joe Waring – 06/08/16

    The hotel could not of done any more to make our day perfect from the first time we dealt with Danielle and any member of the team, to the last final details before the big day, everyone was so accommodating, they just couldn't do enough. The venue is great value for money, the food is amazing with plenty of choice, and being a vegetarian bride, the chef was more than happy to prepare something to my taste instead of something of the menu. Thank you again for making our day run so smoothly.
