never trust ANY hotel that asks for payment up front before you've even seen your room. think adams family crosseed with steptoe and son and that gives an idea of how dated and rough this place and it's owners were. awful decor and beds were like cheap camping beds

I stay at this guest house during the week as I work in Bristol. The first point to note is that it is very convenient for the city centre and is on the right side of town, so no nasty surprises or expensive taxi journeys!

My welcome has been warm from the outset. Madam Toad does take accomodation cost up front; however she does explain this when bookings are made. The house itself is old and grand; however it is fair to say that it is a litttle dated. The decor is a little eccentric; but not ridiculously so.

There are many positives. First and foremost is the cost. Bristol hotels are not cheap. Toad Lodge offers very good value for money. I pay £29per night as a single traveller, but the cost per head of sharers starts at £18pppn. The rooms are large and have 12 foot ceilings. Some are ensuite; however a maximum of two rooms share the communal bathrooms. All rooms have a modern sink unit. All rooms have a TV with freeview channels and tea/coffee making facilities. All rooms have plenty of hanging space. Beds are basic, but comfortable.

Rooms are serviced every day. Fresh towels are supplied and changed regularly. I live in a old house, which I find difficult to heat; however Toad lodge is warm as it has good central heating. It also has all the hot water you could possibly need: a real problem in some other estblishments.

Breakfast is very good given the price paid: juice, choice of cereals, followed by cooked breakfast and toast. Choice of tea and coffee. Unfortunately it is only served between 8 and 9am; however breakfast host is very friendly.

In summary, it is not the Ritz; however it is very good value for money. Not the obvious choice for a romantic break, btu a good choice for a business or budget traveller.

We've been quests of Mme Toad several times over a period of years, for the price and location you can't fault the place, you get a good size room with en suite if you want it, very conveniently located to the center of Bristol, with a proper english breakfast served by the lovely Charles in the communal dinning room. Make the most of breakfast time, introduce yourself to your fellow guests, get a conversation going, you don't know who you'll meet there, don't do the traditional english thing of not talking and being shy.
Toad Lodge is a welcome change from the faceless impersonal corporate chains, try to enjoy its unique hospitality on its own terms, if you enjoy it you'll be back, see you there.
