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.

1. Service

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.

2. Variety

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.

4. Location

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.

“Just wanted to feedback that both of our interviewers have commented on how lovely the venue for today’s interviews was and also how good the service.
People are far too quick to complain these days, and rarely take a minute to compliment, even when it is well deserved… So a big thank you to you and your team for making our day less stressful.”
