The four-star Mercure Bristol Grand on Broad Street, Bristol has had an extensive makeover giving the historic Grade II listed building a stylish and distinctive new look and feel. The 182 room property’s fresh interior draws inspiration from the city’s independent art scene and the building’s rich historic past to create a classic yet contemporary finish.
Mercure has worked with local gallery and street art festival Upfest to curate the art and the new Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel features over 500 pieces by local artists, including bespoke commissioned installations by Gemma Compton and Cai Burton.
The property it located in Bristol city centre less than one mile from Bristol Temple Meads, in the heart of the historic Old City and is ideally located just a short walk from Cabot Circus shopping mall, which offers a huge range of high street shops, and St Nicholas Market, where visitors can explore a range of market stalls to discover local gems and a delicious range of food and drink. Guests also have easy access to the city’s famous sights including the beautiful Clifton Suspension Bridge, SS Great Britain and the vibrant Harbourside. There is also parking on site.
The rooms offer a range of single, double, family, twin and suites to accommodate the needs of every guest – each room featuring warm, subtle hues combined with splashes of vibrant colour. The artworks reflect Bristol’s flourishing artistic community, giving the historic property a rebellious streak, whilst retaining the grandeur of the building’s past. Furnishings in deep accent colours create comfort and combine rich, contemporary fabrics with tough industrial design in wood and metal to give a modern and original look that reflects the city’s shipping heritage. In the bathrooms, classic clean design is combined with luxurious modern touches including waterfall showerheads and stylish patterned floor tiles.
Hotel guests and the Mercure Bristol Grand can enjoy breakfast in the newly renovated Keepers Kitchen & Bar where you can enjoy a selection of much loved British meals which are created using quality, locally sourced ingredients along with a wide selection of fantastic drinks to satisfy any mood. Keepers draws inspiration from a range of salvaged artefacts, and features solid wood and metal fittings to create an elegant but relaxed atmosphere that seats 100 people.
Guests can also enjoy a wide range of hospitality and leisure facilities throughout their stay, including relaxing in the calming indoor heated swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi or working up an appetite in the inclusive, modern fitness centre.
