Bristol's Most Impressive Meetings & Events Space

Located in the heart of Bristol, boasting excellent transport links to the M4 and M5 motorways, Bristol Harbour Hotel is the perfect location for meetings, events and conferences.


Sansovino Hall

The Sansovino Hall is Bristol’s most impressive events space.

The Vault

This impressive room has formed within the original banking vaults of the hotel and can provide a unique back drop for smaller events. From conferences and private dining to wedding ceremonies and drink receptions, we’ll work with you to create a package that works perfectly for the size and style of your event.

Walk down a candle lit staircase into the former vaults of Lloyds bank and enter into a bright event space with lights on independent dimmers, which can also create an atmospheric room for intimate or evening events. The room features a beautiful marble and iridescent wallpaper and includes the use of our built in Sonos sound system, should background music be required. We also have the option of dividing the far section, to create an independent boardroom or catering area.
