We were left waiting by the front gates for a long time, with nobody answering the intercom. When we rang the number provided we got a rather curt response. We finally made it to reception to find no-one there. As per the instructions on their telephone, we rang to inform them of our arrival. The response to the phone call... More

I think that possibly this lady has interpreted our drivers tone as rude and aggressive, as sometimes they are in a hurry on the phone when waiting at the airport. A 2 out of 5 stars for this is ridiculous. I cannot approach the member of staff and get their take on this as she did not contact me directly... More

The first thing i will say in my response is that this customer has said they will remove this review if i refund them, which puts into question the authenticity of the review. Anyone reading this will have probably been on our website where they can clearly see that the parking is off-site, so i am not sure where he... More

Stayed at Acorns Old Farm 25th June '15. No problem with transfer from Airport despite landing at 02.15, very helpful staff and BEAUTIFUL accommodation, enough tea and coffee to sink a battleship. Had occasion to rebook for August and the Gentleman I dealt with was extremely patient, helpful and kind and took it upon himself to look into storage prices... More

Absolutely fantastic place-we usually stay at the Holiday Inn, but much preferred Acorns. It is literally 2 minutes from the airport and is very secure with a electric gated entrance. We were checked-in very quickly & shown to our room in one of the fantastic outbuildings. The room was really nice, very clean & modern - we were really impressed.... More

We stayed on the 28th May 2015. The room was excellent and well appointed,, the WiFi connection was good. The proximity to the airport was fantastic literally a few minutes drive. The staff were helpful and friendly and we were picked up within 5 minutes of calling from the airport on our return to Bristol. We stayed the night before... More

Easy to find from the directions supplied. Email confirmation stated no breakfast supplied only snack breakfast and that was very suitable for us as we were getting up at 3am for our flight out. The bed is so nice. One of the best I have slept in. Room was the perfect size and we had one of the bungalows. Andrew... More

Excellent value for money and very convenient location to the airport are real plusses for the Acorns guest house. The nature of the business with flights around the clock poses challenges, but our room located next to reception doorway was inevitably interrupted by comings and goings, restricting sleep to the minimum. Other rooms may not experience this. Transport to and... More

This guest house offered excellent service and value for money. We all had a good night sleep in the well appointed family rooms and there was plenty of play equipment for the children to let off steam on arrival. Our transfers were efficient and we did not have to wait longer than 5 minutes to be collected after our return... More

I can't say anything bad about this lovely location. We are on a 7am flight tomorrow, so we booked here. The cost of £59 is better than any hotel chain. The guest service is second to none, and we will come back for a mini break, even though the airport is not far away. The room is fantastic, bathroom good.... More

We had a great stay here, the rooms were excellent, very clean and modern. It felt more like a hotel than a guest house. The service was excellent. It was so quiet considering we were so close to the airport. Transfers were quick and easy. We would definitely stay here again.
