Absolutely loved staying at Number 38. Fantastic boutique hotel. The staff are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The rooms are amazing with gorgeous bathrooms. Next time I stay in Bristol it will definitely be here. I would highly recommend this place to stay. You won't be disappointed.

Stayed here for two nights. We had one of the rooms on the top floor. It was a big, spacious and well appointed room. The views over Bristol are magnificent. The staff were friendly. A very good breakfast. It is a very pleasant small hotel, not much more really than a B&B, ie don't expect big hotel services, but if... More

Close to a beautiful park and accessible to shops and restaurants. Very contemporary restoration to grand home. Quiet and private room with excellent breakfasts and attentive service. Well worth the price.

Visiting Bristol for a wedding, only to discover there was a huge concert happening on the downs near the hotel. Staff were helpful with advice and we arrange to arrive and perk well before normal check in time. We were made very welcome with offers of tea and coffee and they went out of their way to enable us to... More

What a great place. We were warmly welcomed with tea and homemade biscuits and read newspapers by the roaring fire. The back windows have amazing views of Clifton's steep terraces the sitting out area looked like it would be a perfect place to watch the world in warmer months. Once relaxed were led up the stairs (there are four stories!)... More

What a great hotel! Checked in and were shown to our fab room with a view over Bristol. I loved having a roll top bath and the lovely REN toiletries complimented it as such. It was great to walk in and have the radio playing classic fm. Tv struggled with bbc 1, but who cares when you are somewhere that... More

A great find! A lovely room, the bathroom was huge and everywhere was spotlessly clean. A well stocked mini bar at reasonable prices. The breakfast was brilliant, I had the crispy bacon and avocado very tasty! Will stay here again next time in Bristol.

A really special place to stay. The rooms (especially the top floor lofts) are truly lovely, well decorated and fitted out with lots of space. The staff are very helpful and the breakfast must not be missed - take the time to make sure you can take it!

This is a luxury B&B in Bristol, formally a 19th-century Georgian merchant’s house, offering beautifully designed rooms and a choice of either panoramic views over Bristol or at the front you can have trees and the Clifton Downs. We were warmly welcomed by the owner to a small reception area( primarily on a lacquered Chinese chest of drawers) in one... More
