Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Our favourite stop-over when travelling to Cornwall’, this twin-bayed Georgian merchant’s house B&B sits atop one of Bristol’s highest hills, with panoramic views. Choose a dual-aspect loft suite and look out to the fore across the green spaces of Clifton Down and, to the rear, across the city to the Mendips. Owned by Adam Dorrien Smith, it is a stylish mix of period and contemporary furniture, with a palette of taupe and duck-egg blue, deep teal and charcoal, coir flooring, velvet armchairs, perhaps a velvet-covered sleigh bed. While everything is tastefully uncluttered, it is ‘warm and welcoming at the same time’, with ‘top-notch service’. All rooms have a fridge, a Roberts radio, waffle gowns and slippers, ‘divine-smelling’ 100 Acres toiletries; some bathrooms have a copper roll-top bath and large walk-in shower. ‘The breakfast buffet is a highlight’ while, for a small supplement, you can enjoy a full English or vegetarian, avocado on toast, smoked salmon with scrambled eggs. The ‘friendly, helpful’ staff stand down at 8 pm, as 
you head out to the nearby restaurants in Clifton. (J and KP, and others)
