The south of England offers many excellent opportunities for holidays, from outdoor activities to cosmopolitan city breaks. However, there are some destinations that go above and beyond in providing all manner of opportunities to appeal to visitors from all walks of life - particularly Bristol.
The de facto capital of the South West, there's plenty to see and do in Bristol, as well as lots of great places to stay. Whether you're visiting with all the family and need multiple rooms, or you're heading to Bristol for a romantic weekend away with your partner and booking a honeymoon suite, the city's long-standing reputation as a tourism hotspot means you'll be spoiled for choice with accommodation options - especially in popular areas such as Churchil, Congresbury, Langford and Redhill.
One of the key things to look for when choosing your ideal Bristol hotel is the location, which not only means finding a nice view, but also judging a location’s proximity to nearby attractions. Bristol is a large city, but one that's very easy to navigate, and if you've got a car there should be no problem getting to such diverse locations as Bristol Zoo Gardens, the Clifton Suspension Bridge and harbour-side attractions, such as the SS Great Britain. If you're planning on walking to your destinations though, checking that your hotel is in a central location could save you a lot of frustration.
Unless you desire to get away from it all on a countryside break, checking the location of hotels in Bristol before you arrange your stay can be crucial, as you may wish to avoid hotels that are located too far from the city centre or transport connections. There are many excellent hotels located near major transport hubs such as Bristol Airport and railway and bus stations, depending how you're planning to travel to the city.
The time of year you're planning on visiting Bristol could also affect your choice of hotel, with many of the most popular locations tending to be fully booked during peak seasons and events. If you're planning on heading to Bristol during the International Balloon Fiesta or other annual event, it could be well worth booking your stay ahead of time to avoid disappointment, especially if you're looking for family rooms or are hoping to take advantage of the cheapest deals. You don't have to limit your horizons to the city itself either, with lots of other enticing destinations just a short drive away, including Cheddar Gorge, the Wookey Hole Caves and Glastonbury.
