We stayed here for our wedding night during covid restrictions and were really happy with the measures the hotel had put in place. We stayed in the corner suite and the hotel had kindly left a couple of beautiful petit-fours on a plate iced with 'congratulations' - a lovely touch which we appreciated! The room was lovely - a huge bathroom with walk in shower, an enormous bed with luxurious bed linen, a bath in the corner of the room and a chez-longue. We felt spoilt! We slept well (although there was some disturbance outside in the small hours of the morning, but we expected this, being in the centre of town, even during covid restrictions) and we used the spa on the morning, which was a real treat. The breakfast was delicious, the service was speedy, friendly and efficient and we would definitely book again. Thank you for making our first night as husband and wife so memorable! Mr & Mrs McLean

Hotel's Favourite
This is a very comfortable, quiet hotel with a funky colourful decor. My bedroom was beautifully furnished and stocked with complimentary water, tea and coffee (machine and pods), gin and sherry. There was also a minibar. I enjoyed a lovely treatment in the spa also. The hotel is located in the old town just a few steps from St Nicholas market which is great for browsing, shopping and eating. There are lots restaurants and bars close by too.

I appreciate Covid is difficult for hospitality but you do expect a refund if a hotel (or any provider) cancels your booking. Even Premier Inn have refunded a stay of mine due later in the month despite me being on a “non-refundable” rate as they have some common decency and compassion. The staff at the Bristol Harbour Hotel I spoke to were downright rude and very unsympathetic, kept quoting their terms I signed up to when I booked. I looked back at the terms and it’s an absolute lie. A quick Google of consumer rights in UK shows that anyone cancelled on by the provider is entitled to a refund. Thank goodness I paid by credit card, on talking to my bank today they have assured me they can claw back the money. The downside is this takes a number of weeks. In summary - don’t stay at the Bristol Harbour Hotel, you’re better off at a Premier Inn who despite being “budget” are anything but when it comes to customer service and common decency.

The hotel facilities were average, we thought it would be bigger as that's what the pictures showed. Having said that the main experience was the treatments these were really good; especially the masseur Kristine.

We booked the Bristol Harbour Hotel in something of a haste - Covid forced our wedding plans to change again and again. Despite that, Robyn was so helpful and friendly and took us through every last detail (including all the issues Covid threw up) and worked with us to make sure the things were important to us happened. We booked the Sansivino with the 'pod' - four temporapry walls to close off the room and make it more intimate and we had nothing but praise for it. We had the spendor of the Sansivino (and it is a spendor) with the cozy privacy of a much smaller room. The staff were so helpful in helping us set up and dress the place and it looked so elegant. We also have to praise Lucy who waited on us for the entire evening, almost completely by herself and we could not have hoped for someone as friendly and professional. She was truly a marvel. Whilst we didn't have the actual ceremony at the Harbour Hotel, I would not have hesistated had I experienced their hospitality as a guest beforehand. It must also be mentioned that the food was sublime. Perfectly portioned and incredibly tasty. They even made us a baileys cheesecake! Breakfast the next morning was equally good, with plenty of options and great coffee. We had the suite booked for the night and it was very comfortable and relaxing. The spa visit the next morning was the icing on the cake. Literally the only problem is parking - which, given the location, really isn't something in their control. They do also give a discount off the price of the local NCP. Could not recommend more if I tried.
