Variety of food
Ethical, local and delicious food is literally everywhere!
Nestled in the hills of south-west England, Bristol has its own unmistakable identity, grounded in roots from centuries ago. Join us as we explore this beautiful city’s history and its character, discovering world-class street art, scenic waterways and artfully created food along the way.
Check-in at your hotel. When evening comes, we can enjoy a welcome drink with other Solos guests before dinner in the hotel restaurant followed by a lighthearted quiz.
On Saturday morning after breakfast we will explore the town with a guided tour. Bristol has a long and fascinating history from its beginnings in Saxon times up to the present day. Hidden among the modern streets are gems from Medieval, Georgian and Victorian times. The afternoon is then free to explore and relax on our own. When we return to our hotel, we’ll meet up in the evening for dinner.
On Sunday after checking out, you may like to explore the local area before heading home.
Our hotel is just a 20 minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station and central to explore Bristol City Centre. The hotel is set in a historic grade II listed building that has been rejuvenated with a stylish and sleek look.
The Keepers Kitchen & Bar offers a twist on traditional British cuisine and Keepers bar has comfy seating and an extensive drinks menu.
The well-appointed rooms are both contemporary and comfortable. All rooms are en-suite and feature flat screen TV, coffee and tea making facilities, hairdryer, iron and ironing board and complimentary WiFi.
Our hotel is just 10 minutes’ walk from Bristol city centre and Bristol Temple Meads Rail Station. The city’s many local bars and restaurants are only a few minutes’ walk away. If you wish to drive, head South West on the M32 and continue on Newfoundland St/A4032. Take Bond St S/Temple Way/A4044 to Broad St where you will find our hotel. Parking is offered on a first-come-first-served basis (£15 for 24 hours). You must register at reception on arrival to avoid fines. There are also two NCP open air car parks nearby.
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% off the metered fare.
The dress code for during the day is casual. In the evenings the dress code is smart casual. Comfortable shoes for walking and sightseeing are recommended.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
