Mecure Grand Hotel Bristol


The historic Grand Hotel is found at the very heart of Bristol. From firstly admiring its alluring façade from Broad Street to entering the hotel via the grand reception lobby, through to appreciating its innumerable traditional-yet-modern nooks and crannies, the Grand experience is a true pleasure to participate in, from start to finish.

Licensed for ceremonies of up to 500, affording ample space to fit up to 400 guests for a formal wedding breakfast, and with its own in-house catering team producing top-quality cuisine right around the clock, this hotel is more than capable of hosting and toasting the ‘Grand’-est of wedding celebrations!

This stunning room features an intricately-designed white arched and coved ceiling embellished with crystal chandeliers, and it has its very own bar area too! Whilst not being as large as the Wessex Suite, it can still seat up to 250 guests for a reception.

As the Grand Hotel’s largest function space, The Wessex Suite can accommodate up to 400 guests for a formal reception meal, or 500 seated for a wedding ceremony.

Reception Capacity - 400

Further hospitality rooms include the Marlborough, Devon and Duchess Suites, each of which is ideally suited to smaller, more intimate occasions with 50 guests or fewer.
