Good Hotel Guide Review

Regular guests praise the ‘impeccable’ service and ‘well-appointed’ rooms at Adam Dorrien-Smith’s relaxed, modern B&B, in an ‘excellent’ location at the top of Clifton Downs. The refurbished Georgian town house is hung with vibrant original artwork; up the stairs, masculine bedrooms ‘well decorated’ in soothing heritage shades look across the city’s rooftops. (Rooms at the back are quietest.) ‘Our room was large and extremely clean, with views over the parkland opposite.’ Living the high life? Book one of the two loft suites, which stretch over the length of the building, and have a bathtub big enough for two. The house is unstaffed after 8 pm, but ‘it was easy to walk to the many restaurants on Whiteladies Road for dinner; the B&B provides a useful list’. Breakfast is ‘excellent’: served in the dining room or bedroom (for no extra charge), the menu includes granola, ‘super-fresh’ croissants, ‘plenty of fresh fruit’; several cooked options. Limited parking permits available. Convenient for a stop-over on the way to or from the West. ‘Highly recommended.’ (John Patterson)

Guest comments

'We were very pleased that we had chosen to stay at this B&B. We were a little concerned about recent introduction of parking meters opposite the building, but there is no problem as they can usually provide a permit. Our room was large, extremely clean and well appointed, with views over the parkland opposite. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of fresh fruit, and the service was impeccable. It was easy to walk to the many restaurants on Whiteladies Road for dinner and they provide a useful list. ' - John Patterson - July, 2015
'Our rooms at the back had a superb view over rooftops, and were quiet. The bathrooms were excellent, containing a separate bath and the only proper-sized shower cubicle I have encountered in a B&B. The freestanding bath was rather deep, and the absence of grab-handles made it less than ideal for anyone lacking perfect agility. Breakfast was very good, with attentive staff. The décor is well done and the location is excellent. ' - David Fowler - July, 2014
