In two weeks time the world will fall in love all over again, and for a lucky few there will be travel to go with the romance. Spotlighting another super nice hospitality group, Clifton Hotels, we see these innkeepers ready and willing to melt hearts. What could beat Valentine’s Day in Bristol?
First time guests who engage with these Clifton Hotels will notice the uniqueness of this hospitality offering, in more ways than one. As a reviewer of all things digital, my first impression was a lasting one. Embattled as the industry is getting in between third party distribution dealings and the lonely innkeeper out there in the wilds, it’s impossible not to note Clifton’s appeal. The hotels state bluntly:
“…By booking directly through us you are not only guaranteed to get our best rate but also a personalized reservation specifically tailored to meet your every need. Aiming to meet your individual budget and personality we have plenty to offer as well as many perks for our returning guests with loyalty schemes, monthly newsletters and more.”
I don’t know about you, but I admire an independent that dumps the TripAdvisor spyglasses, sinks their own money into engaging via social channels, and proudly offers up value the old fashioned way too. Clifton’s one of those rare examples of an independent chain making its way without forking over 30% of the gross to a middleman. Look at the Twitter engagement below. While Clifton may not have 5000 followers, the ones engaged are in a conversation.
Okay, so much for this Bristol hotel chain and independence, how about your Valentine’s deal? How about this, Valentine’s Day in Bristol including:

Then there’s the Clifton (see cafe top), another central Bristol boutique set amid all that is lively in town. A stone’s throw from everything too, this charming hotel offers four star hospitality at a two star price. If “individuality” is the motto of Clifton Hotels, then this little masonry edifice in central Bristol offers a respite in the busiest part of town.

While in town be sure and see; the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, At Bristol, the Bristol Aquarium, Bristol Zoo Gardens, the SS Britain, and especially the Clifton Suspension Bridge (image top) for that romantic photo op.
