Among the elegant Georgian buildings and green leafy squares of Clifton in the north of Bristol, you’ll find large hotels, boutique guesthouses and family run B&Bs, as well as a range of fine dining restaurants, bustling pubs and uber chic shops. You’ll also be close to the zoo, the Downs and the spectacle that is Clifton Suspension Bridge.
To be even closer to the best of the Bristol scene, meanwhile, head down to the buzzing Harbourside area where you can watch boats passing by, browse art at the Arnolfini and eat at one of the many waterside eateries and quirky floating restaurants. Hotels in Bristol’s city centre range from luxury and midrange to cheap and no-frills – there’s even a reputable YHA on the water’s edge that offers good midweek deals.
In the Old City, you’ll find a gorgeous jumble of medieval, Georgian and Victorian architecture, including St Nicholas Market, the Christmas Steps, Bristol Old Vic and some ‘gurt lush’ (very nice) real ale and cider pubs. There’s also an eclectic range of Bristol hotels – some independent and some from international chains, such as Hilton, Mercure and Marriott – offering cheaper stays in Bristol during low and shoulder seasons.
Perhaps you’d prefer to stay in a smaller, more homely hotel in one of the hip up-and-coming areas of the city, a short walk or bus ride from Bristol’s city centre yet full of urban charm?
Try bohemian Montpelier with its colourful buildings and some of the city’s best pubs and eateries, or hip Gloucester Road, a funky strip of vintage boutiques, charity shops and art galleries. Elsewhere, North Street is a hotbed of independent art, creativity and awesome food, and is home to the Tobacco Factory, a Bristol institution where you can watch edgy, groundbreaking theatre.
In each of these buzzing areas of Bristol, you’ll find unique accommodation to suit your individual tastes and needs.
While many hotels in Bristol boost their prices at weekends and during school holidays, bargains can still be found if you search early enough. For the cheapest Bristol deals, however, book a midweek stay in the low and shoulder seasons (autumn, winter and early spring).
