If you’ve visited Bristol before, you know how hard it can be to find parking. Forget about paying through the roof for a car park that’s miles away from the hotel. Here’s a selection of hotels in Bristol that have on-site parking so you can avoid driving round and round looking for parking and instead put your feet up with a drink and relax after a long journey. How much better does that sound?

We do our best to make sure prices are up to date and are as accurate as possible but sometimes prices can change without notice. 

Mollie’s Motel

Mollie’s Motel not only has tons of parking, but it’s loads of excellent amenities and high-tech details, all at an affordable price. Designed by Soho House in a modern style and excellent amenities in each room such as lots of USB charging ports, super-fast WiFi, powerful rainshowers, a smart TV, climate control and tea and coffee making facilities. They also have their own app which controls the TV, EV charging for your electric car and also acts as your room key. There’s even Dyson hairdryers and GHD straighteners, a real rarity at a luxury hotel, let alone a hotel for such a good a price as this. As it’s conveniently located next to the M5, it means everywhere is within a short drive such as Cribbs Causeway Shopping Centre which is only 1 mile away, Bristol Zoo at only 4.4 miles and 5.7 miles for Cabot Circus. It also means that the rolling Gloucestershire countryside isn’t too far away either for when you’ve had enough of the bustle of Bristol city centre. The sound insulation here means you get the best of both worlds with excellent links to almost anywhere you want to go to in the surrounding area but can come home to a peaceful escape and truly relax at the end of a long day exploring. And with luxury Egyptian cotton sheets, don’t be surprised if you sleep exceedingly well, too. 

Following on from the American motel theme here, the on-site restaurant is also American-themed and serves all-day brunch and even has a heated terrace. The amenities at this motel at so good for the price and the addition of parking which can be very hard to find in Bristol means that this one takes the hot spot. You seriously need to consider staying here for your trip to Bristol!

The Wellington

This is a great option if a cosy boutique-style hotel is more your thing than a modern city centre high rise hotel. All the rooms here are cosy and comfortable whilst still being modern and having excellent amenities such as free WiFi, a flat-screen TV and tea and coffee-making facilities. If you’re a dog lover then you’ll love this hotel as it’s dog friendly and there are lots of dog walking routes nearby, which ties in perfectly with it also having lots of free parking. If you’re into your sports, then you’ll appreciate Bristol Rovers’ football ground being such a 5 minutes’ walk away and Filton Golf Course being just 2 miles away. It’s conveniently located just a 10 minute-drive to the city centre but if the drive in doesn’t appeal then why not kick back and relax in the hotel’s own on-site pub and restaurant which serves local produce. Or why not explore around the hotel? It’s located on Gloucester Road which has lots of trendy, independent shops as well as bars and restaurants. 

There are also dog friendly shops here which further make it a great place to bring your furry friends. There is also ample parking here both in the hotel car park but also with lots of on-street parking. If you’re looking for a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city and without having to pay an arm and a leg for parking, then look no further than the Wellington. It’s a great choice for your trip to Bristol. 

The Bristol Hotel

The Harbourside area of Bristol is a lovely area to stay in when you visit Bristol. Not only is it central but it has lots of shops, bar and restaurants as well as having the lovely outlook of the harbour. Even more than that, it’s rich in history as it was once a bustling dock in which merchants traded goods and set sail for long journeys abroad, which the history buffs will love. The Bristol Hotel is located on the waterfront and is close to all the theatres, museums and galleries that Bristol has to offer as well as Cabot Circus Shopping Centre for any much-needed retail therapy. The rooms here are designed in a contemporary style but are still cosy and comfortable. Amenities include free WiFi, a smart TV, tea and coffee making facilities and designer toiletries

 You’re bound to have a good night’s sleep here with duck down duvets, crisp linen and a power shower and wake up to excellent views out over the harbour the next morning with floor-to-ceiling windows.

Outside the hotel, Queens Square and the Arnolfini Gallery are both just 200 yards away and Castle Park and the Galleries Shopping Centre are just a 10-minute walk. Brunel’s SS Great Britain is also just a 10-minute walk from the hotel. If you’re planning on driving then don’t panic as the hotel has secure car parking for guests.

Most importantly, the hotel has its own off-street parking which can be difficult enough to find in Bristol, let alone Clifton.
