Bristol is one of the United Kingdom’s most popular city break locations, so there are plenty of high-end accommodation options. Here are just a few of the best places to stay when you take a quick holiday to Bristol.
Bristol Harbour Hotel
This elegant boutique hotel is set right in the heart of the city. The building itself dates back to the 1840s, and its ornate beauty is styled after the famous 16th-century Library of St Mark’s in Venice. Now Grade II listed, the Bristol Harbour Hotel’s stunning exterior is complemented by the Sansovino Hall. Rooms are of the highest quality, and there’s even an underground spa location in the old bank vaults, a real treat when you’ve exhausted yourself with a long day of sightseeing.
If you fancy something a little more modern, look to the Paintworks Apartments. As the name suggests, these fantastic loft apartments have been made in a converted paint factory right in the centre of the city’s Creative Quarter. Interiors are sprawling and artsy, making Paintworks immensely popular with younger visitors. But there are only five available apartments, so you’re going to have to act fast if you want to snag one for your chosen dates.
Hotel Du Vin
The Hotel du Vin group is one intimately linked with luxury. Bristol’s Hotel Du Vin only extends that reputation. You’ll find it inside a terrace of Grade II listed sugar warehouses that date right back to the 18th century. Walls of exposed brick combine with cast iron pillars to create an engaging classic-meets-modern design scheme. The bar downstairs is gentleman’s club smart. Sink into leather armchairs, view the oil paintings, and appreciate the wood panelling.
Beech House Apartments
You can’t really go wrong with these establishments, but why not consider a serviced apartment instead? Beech House are a range of boutique serviced apartments in the heart of Bristol. Set in a gorgeous Victorian villa, these luxurious apartments feature traditional styling and period feature alongside top of line kitchen and bathroom facilities. You’ll have a whole apartment instead of a room, plus all the creature comforts of home.
