About 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. Facilities 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 Spa 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.
