First Great Western (FGW), which operates trains to Bristol Temple Meads from a large number of mainline stations throughout southern England & Wales, is promoting a reduced rail rate for MICE delegates. The Bristol Hotel (www.doylecollection.com/bristol) is now the natural venue of choice for those planning meetings in the city as it is within walking distance of Temple Meads and offers multiple function rooms of varying sizes.
First Great Western standard return travel between London Paddington, all FGW main stations, as well as many connecting routes to FGW from the Home Counties, and Bristol Temple Meads is now available at the fixed rate of £44, with First Class return travel costing £89. Tickets are only valid with proof of attendance at a conference or similar event in Bristol (proof that The Bristol Hotel is happy to provide when clients book an event at the property).
The Bristol Hotel is the obvious venue to take advantage of these great train offers. Not only does it stand less than a 5-minute taxi ride (10-minute walk) from Bristol Temple Meads station, but it also has nine meetings rooms ranging from a 14 sq m board room seating just six up to the 346 sq m Ballroom accommodating 500 people for a cocktail reception.
Day delegate rates start at £35 per head (for meetings with a minimum of 10 participants). This includes room hire, a two-course lunch or finger buffet, mineral water (on tap with cordials and sweets), three formal coffee breaks with cake, a flip chart and LCD or plasma screen and on-site complimentary parking for all participants. 24-hour delegate rates start at £165 per head and include room hire, a two-course lunch or finger buffet, mineral water (on tap with cordials and sweets), three formal coffee breaks, a flip chart and LCD or plasma screen, on-site complimentary parking for all participants and dinner, bed & breakfast accommodation, for a minimum of 10 participants.
