Quality hotel located near Portbury on the M5 motorway
Located at the Junction 19 service break area on the M5 motorway, the Days Inn Bristol is a convenient stopping point for travellers making their way up and down the country.
Found between Weston-Super-Mare and Gloucester, within striking distance of the city of Bristol, this 2-star establishment offers excellent transport links to a whole host of towns and cities including Birmingham, Cardiff, and London. It’s also a popular rest place for those travelling from and to the southern and northern most points of the UK.
In terms of accommodation, the hotel provides comfortable and clean rooms that are suitable for individual travellers, families, or groups alike. All 60 guestrooms feature en-suite bathrooms as well as tea and coffee making facilities. In addition, satellite television with movie options, telephone, internet access, and trouser press are also provided. A daily newspaper is also available.
The hotel’s restaurant serves breakfast each morning, offering a continental buffet spread. For lunch or dinner in the region, staff members are happy to point customers in the right direction.
As well as a traveller’s resting place, the hotel also serves business customers through the use of its meeting rooms. These can prove useful to travelling business people that prefer not to venture into the heart of a city in order to avoid those long, rush-hour queues.
Those guests staying at the Days Inn Bristol that wish to venture into the city looking for entertainment and attractions will find Bristol to be easily accessible using the A4 or A369. Once in the city visitors can enjoy a little shopping in the city’s many stores, or enjoy a meal at a restaurant.
In terms of attractions one of the most famous and most rewarding to see is the Clifton Suspension Bridge, which was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. This piece of 1864 engineering changed the face of the industry and bridges in general. Without it they’d be no Forth Bridge (Scotland) or Golden Gate Bridge (USA).
Within the city visitors can see a wide range of architectural designs, spanning from ancient to particularly modern. The Bristol Cathedral is an example of fine architecture from the twelfth century. In complete contrast, the twentieth century Clifton Cathedral offers a modern view of construction. The streets of Bristol itself include many different styled buildings, including black and white framed townhouses and solid stone structures.
Those willing to travel somewhat further can cross over to Bridgend and move on to Cardiff. On the way they’ll be treated to some stunning scenery and a number of fantastic sights, not least the River Ogmore as you cross over it.
Heading south from Portbury, which itself is located at the edge of Bristol, visitors can head to either Exmoor or Dartmoor National Parks. Both feature stunning scenery as well as a number of locations to stay for a few days.
Essentially, a stay at the Days Inn Bristol can lead to a number of other destinations depending on the guest. As well as those mentioned above, the hotel also offers good quality links to the likes of Bath, Exeter, and Swindon.
