Hotels in Bristol

Known as the “Capital of the West Country”, Bristol is one of the top five destinations in England. The city is famous for its beautiful Georgian and Victorian architecture, cider, and vibrant underground music scene. During the summer Bristol comes to life with a range of fabulous festivals, including August’s famous Balloon Fiesta which sees hundreds of colourful hot air balloons taking to the skies.

As well as being a great destination itself, the range of affordable accommodation available in Bristol makes it an excellent choice for people who want to explore the West of England. Bristol is ideally placed for discovering natural areas like the Jurassic Coast and the Forest of Dean as well as popular tourist attractions like Bath and the Cotswolds.

Bristol is split into areas, each one with its own distinct vibe. You can find a range of hotels in these neighbourhoods, all within easy distance of the local attractions.

Old City

Old buildings, cobbled streets, and winding alleys make the Old City a great place to explore at any time of day. The Medieval Heart of Bristol is where you’ll find the best nightlife, with award winning pubs and restaurants as well as King Street’s theatres and lavish venues. Wine Street is home to a range of quaint markets, including the popular Friday Food Market, the Bristol Book Market, and the huge Bristol Farmer’s Market which spills onto neighbouring Corn Street.

Harbourside

Bristol’s Floating Harbour is home to plenty of attractions, including Brunel’s SS Great Britain: a passenger liner dating back to 1843, the M-Shed museum: dedicated to telling Bristol’s story, and The Matthew: a replica of the ship that discovered America.  Events and exhibitions are held in the Arnolfini and Watershed venues throughout the year, while the Bristol Aquarium and At Bristol science museum provide fun for all the family. With trendy restaurants and hotels in the area, it’s a great place to base yourself during a trip to Bristol.

Clifton

This up and coming area is linked to the city center by Park Street, which was recently nominated for the Britain’s Hippest Street award by Google Street View. Home to quirky boutiques and popular bars, the street has gained a great reputation among Bristol’s trendiest residents. Clifton is also home to Bristol Zoo, and the famous 19th century suspension bridge which is one of Bristol’s major landmarks.

Eastside

Bristol’s multicultural and bohemian neighbourhoods can be found on the east side of town. St Werburghs is home to allotments and eco-housing, providing the lungs of the city. It’s also home to Bristol’s China Town, Eastgate Oriental City. Montpelier is where the city’s artists and musicians hang out, and boasts plenty of great vintage clothes shops. St Paul’s is famous for its Afro-Caribbean population, who throw a colourful carnival each July.
