Grand Hotel, Bristol

Hotel & Leisure

Firstplan acted as planning and heritage consultants for the refurbishment of the splendid Grade II Listed ‘Grand Hotel’ in Bristol’s ‘City and Queen Square Conservation Area’. The building opened in January 1869 as one of Bristol’s finest purpose-built hotels, which is particularly notable for its elaborate Italian Renaissance style and grand function rooms.

Firstplan submitted the necessary listed building consent applications to Bristol City Council and secured consent for the refurbishment of the building’s guest rooms, foyer areas and restaurant.

To support the application Firstplan prepared a detailed heritage impact assessment to justify the works to this listed building.
