Bristol is voted the best place in Europe to live and to visit in 2017

Bristol has won another raft of accolades!

This week the Sunday Times put us at the top of its Best Places to Live guide. Describing our city as “cool, classy and supremely creative”, the upmarket weekend newspaper praised Bristol for being “a small city that feels like a big city, handily placed for seaside and scenery, but hardly cut off from the rest of the country”, referencing our superb road and rail links.

This honour follows shortly on the heels of Rough Guides which recommended Bristol as one of the 10 world cities to visit in 2017…

…and that one followed Bristol being named as the best European city break for 2017 from travel experts Momondo.

It seems everyone loves Bristol … so it’s high time you paid a visit!

Bristol: the happiest and wealthiest city in the UK

It’s official. In last Saturday’s Daily Telegraph the city of Bristol enjoyed a lengthy feature, over two broadsheet pages, extolling its virtues. It enlightened readers as to some of the reasons why, according to a survey by MoneySuperMarket, Bristol “outperforms other cities in terms of economy and quality of life – it’s the wealthiest, happiest city in Britain”.

The feature article goes on to introduce its national readership to the drama of the Avon Gorge and Brunel’s iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge, the city’s proximity to open countryside and magnificent travel links, the lively, historic harbourside, our two thriving universities (the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England), high employment rates and lots more in the pipeline. Soon to be added to Bristol’s long list of attractions is the super-high-speed link to London and the new, £90 million pound Bristol Arena.

Business and pleasure in Bristol: spring and Easter

There’s always plenty going on in Bristol, for the business and the pleasure visitor, no matter what season. At the moment, though, there’s definitely an added expectant buzz here as the days begin to draw out. In under two weeks the clocks will go forward, which I always find is a huge kick-start to get out and about and explore, whether in a city for work or for a fun weekend.

As I write, both major political parties competing in the 2015 election have stressed in recent days the importance of the South West’s thriving economy in national recovery, with Bristol as its heartland.

Business, Christmas and a jolly good time…

Various things to report this month!

The most exciting news is the completion of the refurbishment of Delvin House. We’ve completely re-modernised the property with new bathrooms, new kitchen, new floors, new beds (all seven!) and some great new contemporary furniture. Oh, and some lovely new mood lighting, to boot. We hired a professional interior designer this time and it was well worth it. Have a look at this lovely house, very conveniently located for major businesses and both local and central amenities. You can stay in Bristol on a short let from just three nights, from £26pppn based on full occupancy. Far better than a faceless hotel!
