The new-build Hampton by Hilton Hotel at Bristol Airport has just opened and welcomed its first guests. The 201-bedroom property is one of the first hotels in the UK to be built using prefabricated units which are bolted together onsite.
The Hilton budget hotel increases accommodation options for the seven-million-plus passengers who utilise Bristol Airport every year. Hilton’s Europe, Middle East and Africa president Simon Vincent says the hotel’s prime spot just yards from the southwest England airport provides an economical place to stay with good amenities.
The regional president continued by saying that the structure’s unique construction was also a first. He added that the modules which made up the building were ground-breaking and sure to lead to an expansion programme which will see similar hotels opened in the UK as well as other destinations around the world.
CIMC Modular Building Systems fabricated the modules at its Chinese factory. They were then shipped to the UK and transported to Bristol before being assembled onsite at Bristol Airport. The hotel features a small meeting facility for 20 guests, a business centre, a 24/7 gym, a snack and beverage outlet, and car parking.
Contemporary rooms at the Hampton by Hilton are as comfortable as those at standard bricks and mortar ones and boast light pastel-hued décor, super-soft queen-size beds and large bathrooms plus bonuses like free wireless internet, facilities to brew tea and coffee, and state-of-the-art televisions. Room rates include complimentary hot breakfasts.
