Located steps away from Bristol Airport and other popular attractions, Hampton by Hilton is the airport’s first on-site hotel and is just one part of an exciting programme for expansion around the terminal.
The hotel was built as part of the £2.3 million renovation project at Bristol Airport, which is a hub for businesses, travel and tourism. With the number of passengers flying from Bristol continuing to rise, it became important to create a convenient and comfortable place for holidaymakers and business users to stay.
Creating a warm and comforting experience with wood-look tiles
Designed by Falconer Chester Hall Architects, The Hampton by Hilton leads the way in utilising new construction technology, featuring not only shipping containers as modular bedrooms, but also a comfortable work zone, a vibrant bar, a spacious dining area and also a business centre. The new hotel was built to be a relaxing place for guests to stay, which was echoed through the design of the hotel.
Solus worked together with FCH Interiors to select the very best tile ranges to create a standout design. These include hexagonal tiles from the unique Program range, which were used throughout the dining and bar area to create a stylish appearance, and limestone effect tiles from the ever-popular Travertine 1 range. The modern design of the hotel also incorporated the use of the Pier range, which is reminiscent of pastel painted boards, effortlessly fitting with the décor of the hotel.
The triangle print pastel tiles were the perfect choice for a memorable feature wall
Surprisingly, the reception area, which features a bold herringbone wood-look floor, was actually created using the Timber range, an authentic and realistic porcelain alternative. Three colours make up the trendy design, with the wide 220x850mm tiles creating a warm and inviting aesthetic – perfect for weary travellers looking for a calm and serene hotel experience.
