We were in town for our son's wedding in, and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay while in Bristol. Our room was spacious and airy and very comfortable, and felt like home. Everything was spotless and the room was nicely appointed, with everything one could need. Breakfast each morning on the patio was superb, a gourmet delight.... More

What a gracious hostess! We arrived with a husband with a bad back. Kathleen immediately sized up the situation and offered us the room on the first floor. Relief! It was a lovely room, bath across the hall but still very private. The afternoon cookies and always available coffee were much appreciated and as every reviewer has said, the breakfast... More

My youngest daughter was married in Bristol, RI last weekend. Our family, my husband and I, two daughters and their husbands and two baby daughters, and our daughter the bride, chose Bristol House to stay in and prepare for the weekend wedding. The choice was perfect! The area, the home, the innkeeper, all could not have been better. Kathleen is... More

Our group of 7 college friends descended upon Kathleen for a multi-night stay - a reunion for us. Bristol House is fabulous. The guest rooms are lovely, welcoming and well appointed. Kathleen is wonderful, friendly and very helpful. We had a great time. I would visit again with friends or with my husband.

I recently was in Bristol, RI for a work meeting and stayed at Bristol House for one night. Really loved my room and the breakfast was wonderful!! I will certainly stay again if my travels take me down to Bristol again.

We stayed at the Bristol House Bed and Breakfast in early May 2015 with 2 couples and our young 2 month old grandson. Kathleen offered such incredible hospitality between her immaculate warm home with its adorable rooms and private baths surrounded by beautiful gardens and a cozy outdoor seating area--to the welcoming common areas for dining and relaxing. Her breakfasts... More

Located in a residential neighborhood, quiet and understated, this B&B seems tidy and somewhat ordinary. But look again. The innkeeper has anticipated your every need. Lint brush in the bathroom anyone? Coffee made to order (I like mine like mud)? Chocolates on the pillow? Beds turned down? Extraordinary breakfast? Bristol Inn B&B is run by a smart, savvy woman who... More

What a find! We absolutely loved the Bristol House and as 'soon-to-be' Roger Williams University parents, we look forward to many returns! The breakfast was amazing and Kathleen was so gracious & helpful! The location was very central to historic downtown Bristol as well as the college campus. Lots of fun, local restaurants to try as well. Dee, Derry NH

A top-notch b&b, hosted by an outstanding innkeeper who also is a dynamite chef. Breakfast was the culinary highlight of the day. Kathleen is gracious, helpful, and a delightful conversationalist. The facility is very clean, the bed was most comfortable, the amenities as good as one gets in a fine hotel. For me, the location was perfect, close to the... More

Bristol House is a lovely place to stay. Immaculately clean and comfortable and stylishly decorated. Kathleen the innkeeper could not have been more welcoming and she generously provides tea, coffee and snacks including home made cookies as well as a yummy home cooked breakfast. We loved it and felt like we had stayed at a good friends house and enjoyed... More
