Always a big fan of the International YHA and my visit to the Bristol hostel was no different - an excellent experience. This one is nestled in the historic buildings along the scenic Bristol Harbour literally a stone's throw from the window to the bridge and the water . It is in an imaginately refurbished warehouse right next door to the the galleries and restaurants. Its a short visit away from the Avon gorge. The hostel hosts over 134 beds with facilities ranging from wifi, laundry, TV room, library, games, bar, cafe, self-serve kitchen, a delicious (included) hearty breakfast, lounge, chill areas, and plenty of information resources for the traveller. The Staff is fantastic and extremely helpful and friendly. Excellent stay ... Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5.
The Bristol Hotel was until recently Jury's Hotel.
It has been recently refurbished, and the decor is smart/contemporary. The carpet in our room however was already slightly stained.
Our room was quite spacious and had all the usual amenities, including towelling bathrobe and slippers, tea-making facilities plus a fancy coffee machine (but no mini-bar), hairdryer, iron and ironing board and dual shower (large overhead shower, plus hand-held for the parts other showers cannot reach).
Breakfast is a fairly standard buffet arrangement, with tea/coffee and toast brought to the table. They lost brownie points on the first morning for an absence of marmalade, but this was rectified the following day.
Rooms start from £95.
The hotel is in the picturesque waterfront/floating harbour area, with lots of restaurants and bars nearby.
It is located right next to a multi-storey car park - there is access from some floors of the car park direct to the hotel. This is handy if, as during our stay, one of the two hotel lifts is out of order.
The hotel has been recently re-opened by two young men who seem to know a thing or two about friendliness and professionalism. They do a bit of everything and have a small staff who all share good qualities.
THe rooms are all different and have nice comfy beds but need a little refurbishment in due course.
One of the owners is vegetarian (like me) and is trying to get a good menu together with the chef - and he's succeeding. THe menu has really delicious food and it doesn't disapoint when it's served.
THe bar area is cosy and there's magazines/newspapers to read in there.
It's close to the motorway.
The restaurant had been reviewed in the local paper the day we stayed by a mystery customer and it was a great write up - hence the restuarant being fully booked (luckily we had booked pre - arrival).
I think the room cost approx £80 for the night with breakfast
Lovely service and welcoming staff.
Great restaurant food.
Ist class facilities only 2 minutes drive from Bristol airport,4 days parking and 1 nights b and b only £54,a real bargain.
The "manageress" a lady called Bonnie was very friendly and helpful,she even bought me a bottle of wine to help me celebrate my birthday,which we though was a lovely thing to do.
Clean,fresh rooms with all the usual home comforts,a superb continental breakfast set us up for the day.
here's a lovely fortress to camp out in,, a random telephone both in the green hills!... this is in compton dando where we stayed the night in an amazing bed & breakfast.. the hosts were some of the nicest people i have ever met... i cant remember the name, part of it is 'cottage'... i highly recommend it for a cozy get away and beautiful surroundings.. hope you find it!
Accommodation is easily found in Bristol ranging from small cheap BB's to a 5 Star hotel. However, during the Balloon Festival it would be wise to book in advance.
Expect to pay about £45 to £50 for an average hotel per night.
I stayed at the Raglan B & B, right next to the river and is only 18 lbs, with breakfast.
Single Bed, No smoking.
