You’ll find plenty of short-term and long-term berths for all types of vessels available at Bristol Harbour, and it’s a great place to stay for a couple of nights when you want to explore the city. Of course, one thing you’ll have to decide is whether to stay aboard or book a serviced apartment for a few nights.
There are certainly pros and cons on both sides, but here are just a few reasons to try a serviced apartment.
Space to Breathe
Most personal yachts are on the smaller side; you might have made the best use of that space, but a serviced apartment will almost certainly offer more room to stretch out and relax. If you’ve been staying on your boat for extended periods, the feeling of staying somewhere larger and more open is really going to appeal, and that’s exactly what you get from a serviced apartment.
Serviced apartments will usually be fitted out with all the latest mod-cons. From coffee maker to washing machine, you should find exactly what you need. Not all personal yachts have those kind of facilities – even if they do, items such as the washing machine tend to be smaller. Even the TVs tend to be smaller on a boat, so why not come nestle up on a nice big sofa and watch a film on a nice big TV?
Bristol Harbour is home to a number of great attractions, but being in the centre of the city is still a better choice for most visitors. Most serviced apartments are converted from older period buildings set right in the middle of town, so you’ll be able to get up and head out right into the heart of Bristol without worrying about public transportation.
A Good Night’s Sleep
Finally, keep in mind that Bristol Harbour can get a little loud at night, especially if you choose to visit during the Bristol Harbour Festival. For the most peaceful night of sleep, we recommend treating yourself to a serviced apartment.
