Good Hotel Guide Review

In a popular neighbourhood with ‘plenty of interesting local amenities’ – the Saturday farmers’ market, just down the hill, gives a fine flavour of the place – this upmarket B&B is ‘highly recommended’ by Guide readers. ‘Pleasing and excellently located’, it is liked for its ‘well-appointed bedrooms’ and ‘commendable breakfasts’. It is owned by Adam Dorrien-Smith. ‘It seems popular with regular guests on business trips, and it’s easy to see why.’ A cosy sitting room is just right for coffees and cream teas; contemporary artworks (a Leaper on the staircase, a Hockney in the bathroom) catch the eye. Bedrooms vary in size. Pick a suite overlooking parkland, or a ‘very quiet’ smaller rear bedroom with ‘superb views over the rooftops of Clifton’; in every case, rooms are supplied with high-end toiletries and waffle dressing gowns. The house is unstaffed after 8 pm, but the neighbourhood’s many restaurants (‘the hotel provides a useful list’) are ‘an easy walk away’. In the morning, breakfast, with ‘super-fresh croissants’ and ‘plenty of fresh fruit’, is praised. (JP, and others)

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
