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?
