The new Bristol Harbour Hotel leads the way in city luxury
Offering the latest in urban escapes, Bristol’s newest hotel fuses two iconic former bank properties to offer contemporary luxurious accommodation with impeccable design and an impressive events space, from October 2016 – right in the heart of the city.
Bristol Harbour Hotel showcases a glorious façade and exceptionally restored interiors, offering an abundance of character and detail for guests to enjoy.
Renowned architect William Bruce Gingell is behind the design of the former Lloyds Bank building, inspired by the Sansovino’s 16th century Library of St Mark in the Piazzatta at Venice.
The hotel hosts 42 bedrooms; suites feature roll top baths with city views, and there’s a Jetty restaurant with award-winning menus created by Harbour Hotels’ Chef Patron Alex Aitken. The former basement bank vaults are being transformed into an indulgent Harbour Spa, opening spring 2017.
What is set to become Bristol’s most impressive events space will be found in the former banking hall of the Lloyds Bank building. This grand room hosts a magnificent skylight, with an opulent detailed ceiling, providing a spectacular backdrop to seat up to 300 guests for a diverse range of occasions; from weddings, award ceremonies and art exhibitions, to corporate functions and Christmas parties.
Mike Warren, Managing Director of Harbour Hotels, said: “We are delighted to be introducing our award-winning Harbour Hotels brand to Bristol. These architecturally stunning former banks provide a unique opportunity to create a luxury city centre hotel; bringing back to use old banking halls that have been vacant for years. With a prime position in the heart of this vibrant city, we are excited to not only attract new visitors with our luxury new hotel, but provide a Jetty restaurant and Bristol’s most impressive events space.”
Room prices start from £145 per room per night, bed and breakfast based on two people sharing.
