This centrally-located, historic and palatial hotel borders College Green, very close to Bristol Cathedral at the bottom of Park Street. The large, imposing 19th-century Grade II-listed building enjoys a particularly prominent position in the centre of Bristol, and has seen a significant period of history of the city over the last 140 years. Today it's a metropolitan oasis of relaxation, and its superb luxurious accommodation, spa and function facilities are indeed something to be envied.

The Marriott Royal Hotel offers the services of a personal wedding coordinator who will be on hand throughout the entire planning process. Closer to the day itself, your very own banqueting manager, along with a dedicated supporting team, will handle the setup of the tables, chairs, decorations and the overall logistical organisation of your special event.


Sitting proudly as an integral part of College Green, right next to Bristol Cathedral and other important public buildings, the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel was originally purpose-built back in 1868 to house ‘The Royal Hotel’.

The Italianate-style Victorian building was restored to its former glory back in 1991, and further improved and modernised by Marriott in more recent years.


There are a number of delightful function spaces available at the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel. The smaller suites, such as the Hanover, Merchant and Lacaster Suites, are ideal for smaller events from between 2-70 guests.

Palm Court

The hotel's flagship space is the gorgeous and simply one-of-a-kind Palm Court, with its own glazed roof, stretching high overhead. The court was wrought in the Italianate-style, and is great for ceremonies and banquets for up to 120.

Reception and ceremony capacity - 120 guests

The Kings Suite

This contemporary space can seat larger weddings, and modern interior makes a great blank canvas for your day.

Ceremony capacity - 250 guests

Informal reception capacity - 350 guests

Formal seated reception capacity - 264 guests


With a variety of relaxing in-house spa options available, including a fitness gym, swimming pool, spa bath, steam room and a whole range of therapies (including hair treatment), it makes an ideal venue for Hen Nights as well as for weddings.

Catering and Accommodation


Wedding reception cuisine comes courtesy of the chefs and catering team who work all year round to serve The Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel's in-house eatery:- Walter's Bar and Grill

There’s a whole host of options to be brought to table, from sumptuous three-course banquets to delectable evening party buffets.  A complimentary menu tasting, which usually takes place 10 to 12 weeks before the wedding day, means that you will have precise control over what you and your guests will be eating on the day.

    Absolutely fantastic service from the initial visit right through to the after care. Sue and her team made us feel really special, and carried out my incredible fussy bridezilla style instructions to the letter!! The hotel is gorgeous (especially Palm Court) and we could have lived in our complimentary suite - it was so large and well equipped.
