We stayed for 5 nights in the King room. Very clean and cosy. Bathroom spacious and clean. The only problem with the room was the fridge was really loud when it would turn on, enough to wake you from sleep, so we used the fridge in the shared self catering kitchen...which was also clean and well equipped. Lovely garden in... More

The location is not within central Bristol but close to a bus stop for direct buses to the city. Supermarket also near by, I was disturbed by other guests staying early in the morning but otherwise my... More

Stayed here recently for 2 nights whilst working in the area and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I had a text from Faiz asking me what time I would arrive and everything was ready on arrival even though I was a bit earlier than check-in time. The wifi wouldn't work so a quick text to Faiz and...

We just stayed at the base for 2 nights for my friends hen night. We hired out the main house in its entirety and it was absolutely perfect! It had a great lounge/kitchen area where we could all socialise and plenty of room to play games. The kitchen was well equipped and we had all we needed. The rooms were... More

11 of us stayed for a hen weekend and there was plenty of space for us all. Lovely outside area too and everyone loved the trampoline. The location was great for us too.

I recently stayed with a large group of friends. The house was well set up to accommodate us, with great communal facilities. All the beds were clean and comfy. The hosts were friendly and professional. Given the cost, I couldn't have asked for better value.
