More about the Bristol Harbour Hotel and Spa
Housed in two iconic former bank buildings, the hotel showcases a glorious façade and exceptionally restored interiors, offering an abundance of character and detail. Renowned architect William Bruce Gingell is behind the remarkable design of the former Lloyds Bank building, inspired by Sansovino’s 16th century venetian Library.
