You’re in the heart of old Bristol, opposite St Nicholas’ market, with Broad Quay at the bottom of the hill. As for this chic new hotel, it was once the home of two grand banks. The exterior stone work was modelled on the façade of St Mark’s Library in Venice, but the interiors are just as good: a cool restaurant with high windows in one of the tiller’s halls; a spectacular event space with 50 Corinthian columns in the other. There’s a spa in the vaults which you enter through the door of an old safe, then a funky bar – once the bank manager’s office – with gilded domes, ornate ceilings and flock wallpaper. Bedrooms come fully loaded: smart colours, fat mattresses, leather armchairs, decanters of sherry and gin. Bathrooms are a delight: walk-in showers, robes and White Company oils, perhaps a bath in the room. As for the Jetty Restaurant, expect fish and seafood in abundance, maybe fruits de mer and South Coast lobster; alternatively, try a twice-baked cheese soufflé, a rib-eye steak, a warm chocolate fondant with cherry ice cream. Bristol – often voted the coolest city in Britain – waits around you.

We stayed as part of the Sunday Spa package which was a great deal. The hotel is cool and the decor feels modern and different: the Jetty bar in particular. The Spa itself was smaller than anticipated (the pool more of a plunge pool than a swimming pool!). The staff were really friendly and the hotel is in a fab location right in the centre of town so perfect for exploring everything beautiful Bristol has to offer.
