Believe it or not, graduation is fast approaching. You have probably entered a state of denial with the hedonistic care-free days of first year seeming as if they were just last week. You are hearing the phrases, ‘I can’t believe we’re nearly graduating’ and ‘is graduand a real word?’ approximately every 3 seconds, even if you’re not talking to anyone. You’re not losing your mind. It’s totally normal.
It is time to start planning the big day. Here we offer you a taste of what your graduation would be like combined with a stay in one of our luxury serviced apartments in the centre of Clifton. The Berkeley Suites, situated in a lovingly restored 18th century Georgian grade II listed building, are the ultimate way to stay in Bristol and make your graduation utterly special and unforgettable...
You wake up with your stomach a knot of nerves and excitement. Today is the day that marks the end of an era and the beginning of something new and exhilarating. Memories of tucking into your luxurious hamper of sparkling Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut champagne, chocolate truffles and strawberries with friends and family are still fresh in your mind from the night before.
You swing your legs out from under the luscious covers, slip your feet into a pair of fluffy slippers and pull on a soft luxury bath robe. You switch on your state-of-the-art cinema projector to watch the headlines whilst you sip a warm, frothy coffee made from your own personal espresso coffee machine. A delicious and hearty full English breakfast is delivered to your room via room service and you have a refreshing blast in your monsoon shower to prepare yourself for a long but fun-filled day. You throw the windows open and look out over beautiful pale limestone buildings of Clifton and the rest of Bristol beyond taking in a few breaths of crisp morning air. You are all set and ready to go.
The ceremony goes past in a blur of clapping, professors, excruciatingly proud family members and of course an almost painful amount of smiling and hand shaking. Everyone is flapping around in their robes, embracing and laughing. It is time to celebrate, in true Bristol style.
A sumptuous three-course meal with complementary prosecco awaits you at the award winning Square Kitchen. Having devoured that last spoonful of opulent chocolate fondant you make your way down the spiral staircase into the mysterious and quirky depths of the private members bar, The Square Club. Sipping on a classy cocktail, you relive the day’s events. A little bit tipsy you wander back past the gorgeous Berkeley Square gardens to your apartment. You throw your bag of graduation paraphernalia on to your dining table and collapse into your magnificent vi-springed bed that has been serviced during the day with fresh Egyptian cotton sheets. What a day. Con-grad-ulations.
