Berkeley Suites: The Crescent are luxury serviced apartments in Bristol City Centre, offering a home-from-home experience – the amenities of a hotel combined with the freedom that an apartment offers and are perfectly positioned to enjoy everything that the thriving UK city of Bristol has to offer.
A UK city break is a popular way to spend a long weekend and a great way to spend time with friends or, of course, with a significant other. Bristol is a vibrant city with a growing cultural reputation and a thriving restaurant and nightlife scene. For a relaxing, comfortable, and luxurious place to stay, check out the Berkeley Suites; their location is unbeatable, just moments away from the Clifton Triangle on a stunning Georgian Crescent just off busy Park Street. The setting is peaceful, so it’s a great place to unwind, but you are just minutes away from the heart of the city. The apartments can be reached in just under 2 and a half hours by car driving from London, or you can catch the train which takes around 2 hours.
This is a real home-away-from-home experience; you have the luxury and amenities you would expect from a top hotel, but this is combined with the flexibility, freedom, and your own space that staying in an apartment gives you. Here, you do actually get the benefits from a hotel as the Berkeley Square hotel is a sister property, and you can make use of their room servicing and 24-hour reception. The building itself is a grade II listed Georgian building, designed in the 18th century, and there is certainly a feeling of grandeur that translates inside as well.
Each of the five suites are individually decorated, chic and contemporary and features lavish furnishings and a luxury finish. The views are stunning, looking right across the city. There is a choice of Junior or Deluxe Suite, but both offer an open plan living space with a kitchenette and dining space as well as a separate en-suite bedroom. The bedroom includes a luxury Vi-Spring bed, Egyptian cotton sheets, fluffy bathrobe, and slippers, and your en-suite has a monsoon shower and luxury Elemis toiletries. The tech features are fabulous too: 42 inch television, Roberts radio, state of the art cinema projector and wall-mounted speakers and my favorite – a video painting installation in each room.
Restaurants & Bars
There are all the facilities that you need to self-cater in the well-stocked kitchenette, including a convection hob, microwave oven, fridge, dishwasher, and Delonghi espresso coffee machine. Your hosts provide a range of fresh food hampers that have been selected by the head chef and include a delicious range of homemade and locally sourced essentials and goodies. As a guest, you receive complimentary access to the exclusive Square Members Club, which includes entrance to the innovative, contemporary, and award-winning restaurant: The Square Kitchen, the cocktail bar on the lower deck, is the place to go after dark.
Pool & Activities
There’s much to explore in the city: The Harbourside, the former port, is now a cultural hub; don’t miss the M Shed Museum here, which highlights local heritage. If children are part of your group (or you’re just young at heart, of course!), the At-Bristol Science Centre and Bristol Zoo Gardens are not to be missed. The shopping is sensational and comes to a close second to London, and the city is well known for its music and entertainment scene. After all this, you’ll be pleased to know that being a guest at the Berkeley Suites also gives you a complimentary pass which provides full access to the Nuffield Centre with a swimming pool, steam rooms, and sauna, which is located less than 300 meters away; the perfect place to recuperate after a busy day.
