Breakfast took 1 hour to be served and when it came the order was incorrect which meant that there was a further wait of 20minutes before I had my cooked breakfast , it shouldn't have been difficult to cook bacon, sausage and toast.I do not usually complain on sites like this and like to give places the benefit of the...

We stayed in the east loft suite for 2 nights and we wished we had stayed for longer. On arrival, we were warmly greeted, restaurants and bars recommended to my wife and I and the offer of our bags to be taken to our room. The room itself was perfect and not much more I can really say. Great views... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the East Loft Suite, which is a gorgeous dual aspect room, with a huge bath, the comfiest bed and beautiful linen. It's only a short walk to Clifton village, and into Bristol, lots of choice of restaurants nearby. Breakfast was delicious both days and the young girls were incredibly polite.

What a lovely little guesthouse. When we arrived we were greeted and had our bags carried to the room. As it was a Bank Holiday weekend with not many guests we were offered a later check out and breakfast served in our room. The room is exquisite with bath robes and slippers provided. Beautiful bathroom overlooking Bristol. Breakfast was amazing,... More

Hugh bed and wonderful bath, that easily holds 2 people. The views are wonderful, to the front over Downs and to the rear a fantastic panoramic view... More

I booked a night in the West Loft Suite for my partner's birthday, as I wanted a retreat in a lively city. Number Thirty Eight was absolute luxury and completely exceeded my expectations! Check-in was swift and the lady who showed us to our room was incredibly welcoming, and made us feel at home instantly. We enjoyed the most spectacular... More

We stayed in the West Loft Suite for one night (but wish it was more). The room's beautiful the welcome was extremely friendly and helpful, and the bed is incredibly comfortable. Oh, and the bath is HUGE. It's a 10 min walk to a number of restaurants as well as an excellent cocktail bar just a few doors down. We'll... More

We stayed for 3 nights over the Balloon Fiesta and enjoyed every minute. All members of staff were incredibly friendly and polite, especially the girls at breakfast. The room was beautiful, clean and the bed very comfy! Although there is no private parking we had no problem at all getting a space on the street outside. Highly recommend this B&B... More

We requested room number 3 and could not complain This is a lovely large room overlooking the park. Great large bathroom also with great views. At no extra charge we had breakfast in our room which was amazing. We felt we'd been thoroughly spoilt and was worth every penny.
