Good Hotel Guide Review
Within easy reach of the city’s sightseeing trail, Andrew and Carla Brooks’s spruced-up 1840s West End hotel has a relaxed, clubby feel. The modern lounge is given a vintage edge with handpicked statement pieces including a black chandelier, deep leather seating, animal horns; periodicals, board games, an honesty bar and a DVD library are on hand. Unfussy bedrooms (some suitable for a family) have their own temperature control and comfortable beds with a choice of down or micro-fibre bedding. No need to rush at weekends: breakfasts, served until 11 am, include a full Scottish embracing haggis and a tattie scone. See also Brooks Guesthouse, Bristol (main entry).
