Best Luxury Hotels In Bristol

Once the industrial heartland of the south-west, Bristol has more recently become one of the trendiest places in the country with house prices soaring. Separated into districts, each neighbourhood has its own character. The city has a strong maritime history and was a pioneer of the industrial revolution – don’t miss a peek at Isambard Kingdom-Brunel’s groundbreaking suspension bridge and ocean liner, the SS Great Britain. It’s also a superb place to see street art, watch live theatre, soak up some cafe culture and lounge by a lido.  Take a look at these top Bristolian hotels. 

The Bristol Hotel

A member of The Doyle Collection, The Bristol offers high standards of service in a thriving location, with 187 guest rooms. It’s a modern hotel, overlooking the activity of the city harbour in this stylish, arts-centred district. Picture windows make up the frontage of The River Grille Restaurant, providing diners with front-seat waterside views as they feast on steak and seafood. While The River Lounge serves drinks and afternoon teas with a relaxing ambience. Previously named as best city break hotel in the South West by The Sunday Times 100 best British Hotels, this is a great base for soaking up the city’s many delights.
