We’re big fans of the Bristol Hotel’s brutalist-style exterior – and the interiors are rather fetching too. Contemporary, chic, well-appointed and with modern art and minimalist styling, they’re really rather swish. The hotel’s setting is perfect: it’s right beside the harbour and not at all far from all the centre has to offer. Try to bag a room with a harbour view for the best experience. Wi-fi, parking and a fitness centre are all included.
On the hunt for a hotel in Bristol? There’s certainly plenty to get up to here.

And some of it’s none-too-expensive either. Here’s our run-down on the best hotels in Bristol.
