4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Lovely old house, warm welcome on a bitter day. Bedroom nice but compact. Bathroom in need of a lick of paint, but ok. The bed was very comfortable, we had a great nights sleep. This was probably the best breakfast that I have had in a long time. Fruit juice, cereals,yoghurts, prunes,full English, toast, etc,etc all available..I would recommend to anyone.

I stayed at the Downs Edge for one night recently for a course near by. The good points - place is very welcoming, friendly. Very relaxing stay with a good nights peaceful sleep. The breakfast was fanastic!!! And i mean FANTASTIC!! The surrounding areas are lovely. The Bad points - The rooms were old fasioned and could do with refurbishment. The kettle was mouldy inside and the bathroom plumming was noisey. However overall the owners were lovely and other good points did outweigh the bad points above. Would actually stay again, but would bring my own kettle!!

A last minute reservation .... The house is very clean and comfortable. The hosts are very welcoming and acommodating. The bed was very comfortable and the room was warm and relaxing. The surrounding area is tranquil and very pretty...a nice part of Bristol. Breakfast was scrumptious.... This intel is why it says on the tin and tht much more. Thank you for making my two day stay enjoyable. The lovely scotty dog made me feel welcome too.

Room Tip: It is a little way out of town but is a short distance from the bus stop.

I have never stayed at such a nice hotel - the customer service is excellent and I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for somewhere to stay in Bristol to go to Downs Edge. I hope I get a chance to stay again in the future - a rare gem in Bristol.

Had the pure delight to stay here for 2 nights. Alan Phillipa, and Minstrel the wee westie made the stay and even greater pleasure. They where just so welcoming, just like staying in a good freinds home. One of the absolute highlights of the stay was the amazing breakfast. I have never known before a breakfast menu so varied. I can't wait to go back. The house is beautiful, and common rooms are comfortable. This place deserve a full 10 out 10 plus some. Loved it.

I had the delight of staying here for 2 nights. The couple who own and run the hotel, are truly a wonderful couple, and so welcoming.
The breakfasts are out of this world! Never before seen such a selection.
The house is beautiful.
Misteral The wee Westies made the stay even more delightful.
Thank you to you both

Have stayed at Downs Edge a couple of times now while visiting friends in Bristol. Breakfast is freshly cooked and the homemade jams are to die for! The beds are comfy and hard to drag yourself out of! The rooms are full of character and clean. The whole house has a wonderfully charming character, while Alistair and Phillipa make you feel at home.
