HOTEL & SPA A STYLISH STOPOVER We take a look at a recent installation of tiles from Solus at Bristol airport’s new on-site hotel.

Tile supplier Solus has brought a contemporary and vibrant design to Bristol Airport’s first on-site hotel, The Hampton by Hilton, with the use of its floor and wall tiles.

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 businessmen to stay.

The new contemporary hotel was designed by Falconer Chester Hall Architects (FCH), offering 201 bedrooms and is situated just a stone’s throw away from the airport terminal. 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, vibrant bar, 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 painted floorboards, effortlessly fitting with the décor of the hotel.

Amy Banahan, Senior Interior Designer at FCH, commented: “The brief set out by the client was to create a hotel that was a modern and fashionable space which would provide a comfortable extension to passengers’ travel experience at Bristol Airport.

“The design quality of the hotel was a priority for the interiors team, who recognised the importance of the hotel’s position in the region. This is visible in design details such as artwork, graphics and joinery items throughout the interior.”

The Travertine range was also used within the hotel, with it taking inspiration from the most attractive and palatial features of natural limestone. The range exposes a charming rustic and natural aesthetic and boasts impressive technical qualities, making it perfectly suited to the hotel.

Solus Area Sales Manager, Claire Hulme, commented: “Working on the new Hampton by Hilton at Bristol Airport has been an extremely enjoyable experience. Working on a new project is always exciting and the design of the hotel meant that we were able to be original and create an enjoyable and vibrant space.”
