When trying to book your perfect trip away or staycation, you are going to want to know that everything has been planned perfectly to reduce the possibility of something going wrong. This guide will help you to find the best accommodation in Bristol for your trip and also help you to organise those other details that you may have forgotten.

Choose your location

So you have decided that you want your accommodation to be in Bristol, well that’s great and certainly gives you a good area to work with when choosing a place to stay. However, to make sure that you get the most out of your stay you will want to narrow down your choice of location even further. You can do this by deciding what activities are most important to you during your trip.  For example if you are planning to visit an area of Bristol that is great for families then you may want to look at accommodation in Clifton. If you are more concerned with finding quirky and unconventional shops and businesses then you should consider accommodation near Old Market. Picking the best location based on the things you want to do and see will help to cut down time spent travelling around.

Use reputable booking sites

To avoid a holiday or staycation nightmare, it is always safer to use trustworthy and well known booking sites or make your booking directly with the accommodation provider. Not only will this stop you handing over your hard earned money to a fake site but it also means that if something does go wrong with your booking, you are more likely to get the issue resolved. Reliable companies will have easy-to-access contact details and are likely to have a customer service team available to help sort out problems and queries.

Research reviews 

There is no better way to find out what it is like staying at a specific accommodation than reading reviews from people who have actually stayed there. Nowadays there are a number of places you can look to find reviews, some of the most popular being Google and Trustpilot. Reading reviews can give you a good idea of the all round experience that people had when staying at accommodation in Bristol, including travel links, places they visited and things they did.

Double check details

Before clicking the ‘book’ button on your chosen accommodation in Bristol, you should read all of your booking details thoroughly. This includes the facilities and services included in your stay but also looking out for anything that could result in hidden costs. It is also a good idea to read what the policy is on damage and bear this in mind if you have young children who could easily knock some expensive ornaments off the shelf.

Choosing the best accommodation in Bristol can be hard, firstly there are a wide number of great accommodation options to choose from depending on your taste and secondly there are so many extra things to consider. If in doubt, do not panic and get in touch with your accommodation provider directly.
