Property Focus... West India HouseFriday 15 August 2014 by Amy Clutterbuck This week we focus on one of our oldest serviced apartment locations in the UK, SACO Bristol - West India House. With stunning views and large rooms it's perfect for a weekend away!
Whilst not the biggest property of the SACO portfolio, West India House is probably one of the oldest. Dating back to 1904 this Grade 2 listed Edwardian building almost certainly has its roots in the merchant trade. It's location on the harbourside suggests that it was probably offices, but although there are photos of the building, there is very little written history about it.
Today however, West India House contains 14 apartments, four studios, nine one beds and one two bed. The rooms are generously sized, many with high ceilings and picture windows which offer excellent views over the harbour. There is a lift, but it's small and will not accommodate any sort of pram/wheelchair.
The site is self check-in, which means that you will be given codes to access the building and the key safe. Although there is no receptionist on site, guests can use the apartment phone to contact the reception desk at Broad Quay if they have any questions during their stay.
West India House is decorated to the same high standard as all SACO properties, but also maintains many of its period features. You'll find complimentary WiFi suitable for checking emails and browsing and there are four Sky sports channels available. Rob, Kirsty and Margenny look after the property, so be sure to say hi to them if you see them around the building!
Located in the heart of Bristol city centre, you'll find plenty of restaurants, bars and cafés nearby and both Cabot Circus and Broadmead are just a short walk away. With all of Central Bristol close at hand, West India House offers a great location to stay while away from home.
