Why independent hotels are better for business travellers
Independent and family-owned hotels are great places for business customers to stay, as they offer character and a sense of community that you just don’t get with a homogenous chain hotel. So before you book that branded hotel, Alveston House Hotel has come up with four key reasons for business users to go independent instead.
We’ve all arrived at a well-known hotel to find a bored-looking receptionist who barely looks up as you haul your luggage towards the check-in desk. At Alveston House Hotel, the welcome is always enthusiastic. We value every guest who stays with us and promise never to treat you as a ‘room number’, we try our best to call you by your name.

Independent hotels are special because they don’t have to fit into a national, or even international, mould. We know the local area extremely well and have a good rapport with local businesses. We can offer you expert advice about entertainment and places to visit in the local area. Alveston House Hotel was named 'Best Small Hotel of the Year' for the 2nd time in the Bristol Hospitality Awards 2010 and 2012. We pride ourselves on providing plenty of original touches and the variety you need to get you through the week.
3. Great food
Fed up of staying at a hotel and eating your way through the whole menu in a matter of days? If yours is a long or repeated stay, we are able to offer a wide range of meals for you to choose from. Our award-winning restaurant Carriages has been awarded an AA Rosette three years running and we use local ingredients wherever possible, so it’s fresh and delicious. And you’ll never get bored of eating the same dishes over and over again.
We’ve all seen the clusters of hotels that stick out like a sore thumb near airports and in city centres. Alveston House Hotel is located where the M4 and M5 meet, on the outskirts of Bristol. So it is easy for business guests to find, but set apart enough to feel relaxing and secluded.
Offering excellent conference and hotel facilities, we will do all we can to make your stay comfortable and to support any meetings or conferences you would like to hold at the hotel.

"It's a joy to use a hotel that really understands customer service and puts it into action. I recently used Alveston House Hotel to run a business planning event for one of my clients. I was delighted with the responsive and friendly approach of the staff. All the arrangements ran like clockwork and staff were very flexible when our event didn't quite follow the original plans. It was delightful to be able to concentrate on working with my clients with the reassurance that all the other practicalities such as coffee breaks, meals and equipment were being handled so professionally. I look forward to my next opportunity of working there."
