Bristol Airport is just a few miles south of Bristol City Centre (around 20-25 minutes away) with direct services to destinations across Europe. It's also in the middle of some beautiful Somerset scenery, giving you the perfect opportunity to combine a city break with some glorious English countryside. 

Perhaps you've just arrived in the city, are on your way home, or stopping by before heading off for a holiday? Staying at a hotel near the airport can make the transition that little bit easier. Add on a extra day to visit the sights of Bristol or just treat yourself to a relaxed pre- or post-flight evening of nice food and a drink.

Hampton by Hilton Bristol Airport

Just a stone’s throw away from Bristol Airport terminal building (250m), this is the ultimate hotel in terms of convenience, and the only hotel within walking distance of the check-in desks. A great choice for families and business travellers, especially if you have a late-arriving flight, or crack-of-dawn plane journey as the hotel's proximity to the airport means you can savour an extra time in bed without having to worry about taxis or traffic! It also makes a good base if you're picking up a hire car to tour the local area for a few days - the city of Bristol and attractions like Noah's Ark Zoo Farm, National Trust Tyntesfield (which also has some holiday cottages in the grounds, see below) and The Grand Pier at Weston-super-Mare are all really accessible. The hotel has 201 rooms, free WiFi, fitness centre and offers a hot buffet breakfast, included in your stay.
