As a frequent flyer I am only too aware of the poor quality and noise found at some airport hotels. So it is great when you find good accommodation close to the airport rather than on it! At Bristol the Old Chaff Mill is a real jewel close to the airport but set well back off the road via a... More

I have been staying at the Old Chaff Mill for business and family trips for the last 8 years. Never had a problem. Always get a warm welcome and receive a great service. When you find something that is this good you stick to it.

The property is close to the airport making transfer very quick and pain free. The accommodation is modern, very comfortable and kept spotlessly clean. A perfect start to a holiday or business trip.Especially suited to an overnight stay before an early flight.

What a find! We stayed in the two bedroom lodge before our early morning flight and couldn't of wanted for anything better. The lodge was clean with a large kitchen and living area so we had a very enjoyable and relaxing evening before our flight.

First difficulty was being unable to understand the lady with whom we booked but we emailed the owner and got a nice email reply to confirm the booking. We stayed one night and the lady was friendly and the room similar to others we have used. The return arrangements were very poor. We called the number on the card and... More

I thought long and hard how best to respond to this review from somebody I consider to be an unreasonable and ultimately an unpleasant character; being public-facing we meet people like this from time to time but thankfully not too often. The driver is adamant that he went twice to the airport, once to collect somebody to take to Acorns... More

Stayed here before a very early flight from Bristol Airport and it is a fab find. Given a warm welcome and asked if we needed help with our bags. The room was large, very clean and modern. It also had a massive tv. Tea making facilities were great complete with lush biscuits. We loved the snack packs left for us... More
