For business When on tour with English National Ballet, I like to stay in a hotel convenient for the theatre and station, with fast room service, efficient heating and competitive prices - as a publicly funded arts organisation, we have to control costs tightly. My favourite is the Bristol Marriott Royal, overlooking College Green towards the Cathedral and within two minutes' walk of the Bristol Hippodrome, where the Company performs. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped with modem points, a large wardrobe, trouser press and ironing board. There's an elegant pool and spa gym and the breakfast is an epicurean feast - no need to eat again until the evening!
