Good Hotel Guide Review
Whichever room you choose at Adam Dorrien-Smith’s stylish B&B, you are assured of a view. The bay-fronted Georgian merchant’s house stands high on the hill, looking out over Clifton Downs to the fore, and across the city at the rear, to the docks and distant hills. Each room is shipshape and Bristol fashionable, with an ‘excellent bathroom’, luxury toiletries, waffle dressing gowns, a minibar – rather importantly, as the much-praised ‘attentive staff’ disappear in mid-evening, so you have to let yourself in and attend to your own needs. Wood-panelled bedroom walls are painted in mostly muted, always restful colours. Some have a sleigh bed, perhaps a roll-top copper bath or a separate bath and shower. You can take a cream tea or a cocktail by the log-burner in the sitting room, or on the roof terrace, feeling on top of the world. With the acquisition of the next-door property, since last year two new suites have been added, and a meeting space/private dining room. At breakfast there are pastries, fresh fruit, granola, smoked salmon, a locally sourced full English with roasted vine tomatoes. More reports, please.
