Excellent accommodation and very clean. Everything you needed to make a very comfortable and pleasant stay. There is nothing I could fault and was disappointed we were only staying the one night. Flight transfers were very good. Would recommend to anybody thinking of staying here.

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...

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.
