Thanks to their more intimate environment, where a smaller number of customers ensures staff can provide more attention to each guest, boutique hotels are still very popular with leisure and business travellers. At Bristol, you can find several that are catered to different budgets and provide easy access to the city's extensive array of tourist attractions and buzzing nightlife.

Top Attractions in Bristol
No visit to Bristol would be complete without seeing the magnificent SS Great Britain, a pioneering steam ship that was completed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, an engineer who has been voted one of the greatest Britons of all time. It just so happens that Bristol is also home to another one of his masterpieces, the Clifton Suspension Bridge, which he designed in 1829, although sadly the construction of this bridge was delayed and Brunel did not live to see its completion in 1864.
See the handsome Cabot Tower, which is 32 metres high and has a prominent position on Brandon Hill, offering excellent panoramic views of Bristol. This charming landmark was purpose-built in the 1890s to mark the 400th anniversary of the excursion of John Cabot, who in 1497 set sail from the city to North America and became one of the first European explorers to see the New World.
