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

This is a terrific place to stay, with lovely rooms stylishly decorated, and staff who are helpful and courteous. The breakfast were wonderful, the bed fantastically comfortable, and there were thoughtful little details in the room such as lots of hooks, good quality magazines and fresh milk for the nice tea bags. No. 38 is a very attractive house with... More

We booked all but one room for my recent wedding. Such a treat! The rooms are wonderful & beautifully furnished. Clean, bright, comfortable & quiet. The toiletries also very nice! Breakfast was one of the best, seriously. This hotel is excellent value for money when you consider the quality on offer. If you're visiting Bristol - treat yourself.

Ok, there is no bar, no pool and the lounge area is closed after 8pm but you don't book No 38 if you want these facilities. What you do get is a very high standard room with a mini bar that is not over priced, a superb freshly cooked breakfast and all for a very good price. I will definitely... More

Stylish, attractive and very comfortable place to stay, close to Clifton and within easy reach of Bristol. A lovely old house which has been given a modern twist. Spacious rooms with good bed and quality linen. Couple of nice dining rooms serving stylish, very well cooked and interesting breakfasts. Highly recommended.

Number 38 is a beautiful Victorian townhouse hotel in the swanky Clifton area of Bristol. The first clue to Number 38's impeccable attention to detail is the front garden, which is neat and pretty, with a lavender bordered path. The staff were all welcoming, friendly and efficient, with a cute East European charm. Our room, while compact, was elegantly decorated... More

We stayed here in the West Loft Superior room which is an experience to behold, far reaching views over the Downs on one side and the town on the other side. Gorgeous furnishings, extremely comfortable bed, classy bathroom and a great shower (always the best sign of a good room). Loved all the detail. Friendly and efficient service. Good breakfast...
