Unlikely as it sounds, a 1950s office block in central Bristol is today a cool B&B with neat bedrooms, shiny rooftop caravans, a relaxed vibe and a courtyard garden. 'Good value for such an attractive and central location,' ten minutes from the harbour, with a 'sense of privacy and security', say readers. The three-storey building was converted by Carla and Andrew Brooks to provide bright, frills-free accommodation. Bedrooms are simply furnished with classy wallpapers, tongue-and-groove panelling, pale-wood bedsteads and colourful throws. Space is at a premium – wooden hooks replace wardrobes – and tiled bathrooms are compact. 'Older folk might want more creature comforts,' commented inspectors, though it was 'well lit and tastefully decorated'. Alternatively, Airstream-style silver caravans in the rooftop garden, squeezing in double bed and shower, have a sense of 'pizzazz' and are a fun retreat for families. Breakfasts, including home-made fruit compote, eggs Benedict, a full grill as well as daily specials, are served in the open-plan living area. Eclectically furnished with vintage and rustic furniture, it has large bifold glass doors open to the courtyard garden.
