I have stayed at this fine hostelry every week for months now and am forced to reply to the penultimate review that starts 'unprofessional and unfriendly'. It is not.... and the reviewer must be confused with another. Downs Edge oozes with warmth, charm and an overwhelming homely feel. I am always cheered up by the open natural friendliness of its...

This lovely B&B situated right on the beautiful Downs is a real find. It has a real homely feel and the breakfast is second to none. The owners are friendly and very welcoming and although the rooms are not the most luxurious, it is a beautiful old house in a great position for seeing the City. I have very fond... More

Unprofessional unfriendly greeting with no advise of where things were. Taken to house next door which had a strange smell 24/7. Room freezing cold on arrival, room basic but not very clean, mattress very hard, coffee (in jar) on hospitality tray rock hard and dust everywhere, soap container stuck to shelf with soap residue and dust!! Breakfast very basic and... More

We were placed in an annex next to the main house. The WIFI did not reach that far, so we had to go to the (quite nice) lounge in the other building to use the internet. But weirdly, there was no way into the house without ringing the front doorbell. The much-trumpeted breakfast was pretty good, but they got our... More

We were a little concerned as some of the reviews were not brilliant but I think they are totally unfair. This B&B has history throughout with old photos everywhere. Whilst it may not be as modern as many, it is not that sort of place. The owner is a charming gentleman and the breakfasts were delicious. The marmalades are fantastic... More

I have been going to Downs Edge for the last ten years, but not a lot recently so it was good to be back and see that nothing had changed and the whole experience was as pleasant as ever. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast choice cannot be beaten. Excellent cooking and the marmalade is so good I... More

We chose this B&B after studying the reviews on Tripadvisor, it lived up to or exceeded all our expectations. This elegant house is a little dated , but the welcome from the owners is warm and genuine. We had read of other Rave Reviews about the Breakfast, words are inadequate to describe this spread, a wonderful selection from Home Made... More

Booked this B+B due to location of function we were attending. Check out t/a and reviews were very good. Read on t/a was difficult to find - thank you this advice helped. On arrival the door was opened by an elderly gentleman (the owner) who booked us in and showed us to our rooms. The house is a beautiful 1920's... More

My wife and I have just spent two very enjoyable nights at Downs Edge, Bristol. The house is lovely and well situated on the Downs, with easy access to the city. We had a very comfortable room and delicious breakfasts. It really felt like a home from home & I would recommend it to other visitors to Bristol

This hotel is rather like staying in a large country house rather than a hotel, in a lovely location. I arrived in the dark and had trouble finding it as it is off the Saville Road, a small light over the sign down the road would be great. My bed was very comfortable and all very clean, but the shower... More
