Nicely decorated hotel with stylish rooms. Breakfast was okay but nothing to write home about. Central to the lovely Clifton and Bristol City Centre both were within a 30 minute walk of the hotel. Great place to stay for our first visit to Bristol.

Lovely little hotel, only 10 rooms so not too busy! We stayed in room 7 and absolutely loved everything about it (except the floor was very slippy and mini bar in room was quite expensive) big flat screen TV, huge comfy bed, rainfall shower, nice big bath, amazing view out of bathroom window... Everything was just amazing! Great price for... More

Immaculate room, brilliant service. I'd move in if I could. The bed, the roll top bath, the view, all incredible. Lovely touch to have the radio playing when we checked in. If we visit Bristol again I'd definitely come back. The free passes to lido we an excellent perk.

My husband and I stayed in the dark-coloured suite for one night in May 2015. We had an amazing stay. The room was beautifully decorated, extremely well finished and very spacious. The bathroom area was really well laid out – the bath was a stunning copper roll-top bath and the room also had shower facilities. The bed was extremely comfortable... More

Stayed for one night on 28th July in a standard double room with shower (room 10) located at the rear of the building on a lower ground level. The room was very stylish with a large window with good views. The bed was king size and very comfortable. Bathroom was spacious with a good, powerful shower. Breakfast was excellent. Overall...

We believe that this place has not always ben as opulent as it is today but it is first class in every way from the standard and quality of the rooms, the wonderful breakfast with something for everybody and the welcome and helpfulness of all the staff. It is not a cheap place to stay but worth every penny. Highly... More

This was our second stay at this lovely townhouse, as it is very close to the Spires Hospital. This time we had Room 7, which was downstairs. No view from the front window, but lovely views over Bristol from the back. It was a very hot day and the room was lovely and cool, spotlessly clean, very comfortable bed and... More

We stayed here for two nights in the dark green suit, this was a treat and so a much more expensive place than we would normally stay but we felt it was still excellent value. The room was immaculate and made up each morning fully cleaned etc. The bed was lovely and comfy and well, what can i say about... More

We loved the view over Bristol from the bedroom window. The bathroom was huge with lovely REN toiletries. The room was small but beautifully furnished. The breakfast was delicious and the staff were very helpful during check-in and check-out. The location in Clifton was perfect for strolling on the Downs, wandering around Clifton and it was a short walk to... More
