THISTLE GRAND BRISTOL Tasting Event – September 2011

The E&V Team were invited to the Grand Bristol who hosted a Chocolate and Wine Tasting evening event.

This 19th Century Hotel has undergone a £10 million refurbishment – bringing their Conference Rooms, Bedrooms and Restaurants completely up to date.

* The Hotel is located in the heart of the City
* Offers 10 meeting rooms, largest seating 500 theatre style
* 182 bedrooms including deluxe, executive and suites – complete with the very best of today’s technology.

The Wine Tasting was presented by the Hotels own inhouse wine expert, with something to suit everyone!  Followed by a Chocolate Tasting by local company Guilbert’s who are the only remaining chocolate maker in Bristol and have been making luxury hand made chocolates for 100 years.

We experienced an overnight stay at hotel in the newly refurbished bedrooms.  We made use of the new Leisure: with indoor pool, spa, sauna, steam room and gym facilities
… in the hope to work off some of the calories consumed the night before!!

If you feel Thistle properties have not met with your requirements in the past  then be aware that the Group launched a five-year investment plan in 2007 to rebrand and refurbish Thistle Hotels within the marketplace – to offer luxury, contemporary standard properties.

We consider the Grand Bristol has been brought into line with other hotel brands in this category.
