The Brigstow in Bristol is up for sale. The four-star hotel (116 rooms) by the Welsh Back waterfront, has a good reputation under its manager, Tim Howes, who was kind enough to bulk order copies of High Times at the Hotel Bristol when it was first published. His reason for the interest? Brigstow is an old name for Bristol, a Saxon word meaning the place on the bridge. The hotel is on the market through Savills, who are asking for offers exceeding £9m (£77,500 per room). They are optimistic about finding a buyer. "Bristol's hotel market is currently outperforming the UK regional average," says James Bradley of the agent's hotel team. "We have already received significant interest."
We certainly look forward to the Brigstow's continued prosperity.
