“Walton Park Hotel was originally built in the late 19th century and has been sympathetically restored to become Clevedon’s Premier Hotel.
Guests can wine and dine in the Victorian splendour of the awardwinning Somerset restaurant and enjoy the breathtaking sunsets over the Celtic coastline. The spacious, comfortable and lavishly equipped bedrooms, the majority of which provide magnificent views over the Bristol Channel, are individually designed and furnished to a high standard and all complete with freeview flat screen TV, complimentary beverages and free WiFi.”
How to get to the Congress:
If coming by car, leave the M5 at J20, head for the seafront and turn right. (It’s that simple.) There is ample car parking at the hotel. If coming by train, alight at Yatton. This is about 4 miles away. There is a not particularly frequent bus service from Yatton to Clevedon, but you may wish to use a taxi. The approximate cost is £10.
