Great Value Airport Parking in Bristol

| 33 Comments

Welcome to another Travel Tuesday post. Living in West Wales we always try and fly from Cardiff, but this isn’t always possible. Last September we flew to Menorca from Bristol Airport, and were looking for some great value airport parking in Bristol. We also wanted to stay the night before we flew to make sure we were there with no hold ups hiccups.

The cost of a package like this can vary hugely, so we were thrilled to be asked by FHR Airport Services Ltd if we would like to review one of their packages.

We chose to stay at the Town and Country Lodge in Bristol where we could leave our car for the week, and have a Taxi to and from the airport. There were four of us travelling, and breakfast was included too.

The cost for this was £129 which included parking in a secure car park at the lodge for up to eight nights.

We thought this was brilliant value for money, the lodge is more like a motel, with the bedrooms situated around a courtyard, the room was clean and warm with lots of room and its own bathroom. It was quite basic, but perfect for a nights stay. There was a lovely bar area and a restaurant too which offered food until around 9pm – we just missed this, but the barmaid suggested a couple of local take aways that we could order food from. We ordered pizza which we took to our room. We had a good nights sleep in comfy beds.

Breakfast was quite basic too, offering hot and cold options, juice and filter coffee or tea. It was more than adequate to fuel us before our flight.

The receptionist booked our Taxi to come and pick us up, and we were taken in plenty of time, despite the rush hour traffic, right up to the Departure doors. It was so stress free, it was wonderful!

We were given a voucher which we had to keep safe (Well done Mummy!) to give to the taxi company when we landed back at the airport. The taxi office was right outside the Arrival doors, and within minutes we were in a taxi being driven back to the lodge.

We had to pop into reception to tell them we were back, so that they would let us out in our car. Mummy had parked the car, there was no need to leave the keys.

This was such a brilliant service, we would definitely recommend FHR Airport Services Ltd, and would use them again for great value airport parking in Bristol.

Have you ever used such a service?

  1. A great review and always handy to know these things. I find staying at a hotel before flying so much easier now with children. This seems good value for money x

  5. This sounds like great service, we have always had people drop us off when we have flown, but you can’t always get that. This seems great.

  6. How far is Bristol from Wales do you know? It sounds like a great service and at least you don’t have to travel on the day?!

  7. It’s so important to have somewhere safe to leave your car when you go on holiday. It’s one less thing for you to worry about and you can just relax 🙂

  8. Oh looks amazing and we often stay over when we are flying off somewhere we did this on our way to Australia and am so pleased we did

  9. I do like FHR, I’ve used them quite a few times although mostly the meet and greet service rather than an overnight stay as well. Anything which makes the airport experience easier with kids is definitely good though!

  10. I’ve never used a service like this before but I imagine it would have came in extremely helpful when I was younger, for my parents! Lots of rushing around last minute. Lovely post and so helpful. Thank you!

  11. I love Bristol airport to travel from, it always seems less stressful that Cardiff overall! This package seems to take all of the hassle out of parking or getting public transport over there too. A great idea, and a total bargain 🙂 x

  12. That is really good value, It can be the best part of that without the room. So glad you had a wonderful holiday x

  13. Brilliant service, we live in Plymouth and had to drive up to Gatwick at stupid o’clock in the morning in order to get to the airport in time!

  14. This sounds great. Anything to make your holiday departure with little ones less stressful! Xx

  15. This is a nice service, it’s always awkward arranging travel to the airport or a place to keep your car so i think this is a great all in one option! x

  16. This sounds great, airport travel and accomodation can be pretty stressful! Anything that makes it easier really does help! x

  17. No I have not but looks like it was a great holiday you guys had.

  18. I’ve not used FHR before, but this sounds like a great service. It’s important to get the holiday off to a good start isn’t it

  19. I’ve not slept in a hotel the night before I flight, I normally just drive down right before a trip.
    Beautiful place though, it looks like it’d have a nice smell (does that sound strange?) ..

  20. That is good value for money, Kaz. Sometimes just a week of parking alone can cost a fortune!

  21. I love little well kept hotels like this.
    I could use this next time we go to Wales.

    I have never tried airport parking before, we were thinking about it for a holiday in 2 weeks but I just haven’t got round to looking into it. Seems like it was worth it.
    Thanks for sharing hun

  22. We try to travel from Cardiff too but there are not enough destinations and the flight times are always awful. This is a great idea for Bristol, I love the idea of the taxi too. So much less stressful

  25. Sounds like such a great service. We don’t live to far from our local airport which is Manchester but parking can still be quite costly. This sounds like amazing value for money.

  26. That’s a great deal as airport parking can add so much to the cost of a holiday.
