TOP END BRISTOL HARBOUR HOTEL OVERNIGHT RATE $505 (CORNER SUITE)
Bristol Harbour Hotel is one to put your money on, occupying what was once the Lloyds and Midland bank HQ. There are 42 rooms to choose from but you’ll find the most space in a Corner Suite, replete with roll-top freestanding bath, mini bar and a larder of goodies. As well as free Wi-Fi throughout, in your room you’ll enjoy on-the-house sherry or gin in glass decanters and Nespresso coffee. On-site eats come from The Jetty, with a seafood-led menu and sumptuous banquette seating inviting long lazy lunches. Don’t miss the clotted cream afternoon tea, either. Imagine swimming through a pool of banknotes as you enjoy the spa’s hydrotherapy pool, tucked within the old vaults. The banking theme continues at The Gold Bar, with cocktails like Greenback and Death and Taxes.
