The historic Grand Hotel is found at the very heart of Bristol. From firstly admiring its alluring façade from Broad Street to entering the hotel via the grand reception lobby, through to appreciating its innumerable traditional-yet-modern nooks and crannies, the Grand experience is a true pleasure to participate in, from start to finish.

Licensed for ceremonies of up to 500, affording ample space to fit up to 400 guests for a formal wedding breakfast, and with its own in-house catering team producing top-quality cuisine right around the clock, this hotel is more than capable of hosting and toasting the "Grand"-est of wedding celebrations!


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.

They have recently had a £5million refurbishment to create a contemporary feel. They will now offer a number of different event spaces which have been designed to create the perfect space for your wedding.


The Ballroom

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.

Wedding breakfast capacity - 200 guests
Evening reception capacity – 250 guests

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.

Civil ceremony capacity – 500 guests
Evening reception capacity - 400 guests

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.

Venue Hire

Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel, your perfect wedding venue... with no venue hire! The hotel doesn't believe that you should have any wasted money on your wedding day, so, as long as you meet a minimum spend on food and drink, they will not charge you any venue hire. This means you only pay for what you order.


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


As might be expected of such a highly-reputed establishment, The Grand Hotel's 186 spacious bedrooms are more than capable of accommodating most if not all of your guests in sumptuous luxury. Each room is newly refurbished and comes with a multitude of facilities such as Wi-Fi, TV, four-poster or king-size bed and much more.

  • 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
