The newest and most luxurious addition to Bristol's hotel scene, situated in a landmark nineteenth-century building. 

Bristol Harbour Hotel

49/55 Corn Street Bristol BS1 1HT 0117 203 4445

We say

Bristol isn't known for its luxury hotels, and this brand-new hotel – so new in fact that its headline spa and some of its rooms are not yet open – has already taken the city's hotel scene to a new level. Bang in the city centre, having been fashioned out of not one but two of the city's landmark bank buildings – the Edwardian former Midland Bank and the splendid old Lloyd's Bank building, grade-2-listed and inspired in the mid-nineteenth-century by Sansovino's famous Library in Venice –it's as urban as Bristol gets, close to the waterfront and within walking distance of pretty much everywhere in the city centre. The hotel's magnificent facade is carried through into the interior, built as a homage to the solid virtues of the banking world but now making a different sort of statement – of luxury, comfort and a fair dash of style. The 42 guest rooms – of which around half are currently available – are spacious and well-appointed cocoons in which you want to spend time, enjoying the views across the city centre and big, comfy beds, en-suite bathrooms with rainfall showers and White Company toiletries, docking stations and flatscreen TVs with Freeview, tea- and coffee-making facilities and Nespresso machines. There's 24-hour room-service, but you'd be crazy not to explore the building, and the Jetty restaurant is a suitably grand place for dinner, after which you can retire to the Gold Bar for cocktails and DJs. Finally, when finished, the former bank vaults will be the hotel's luxury spa, complete with indoor pool, sauna and steam room, hydrotherapy pool and treatment rooms. It was about time Bristol got itself a hotel like this, and finally... it's arrived.
