Spent a weekend here for a hen do and was very impressed with the space we had, especially in communal areas. Kitchen was well equipped and you can easily cook in it for a large group.

The Base is a great choice for a hen weekend in Bristol. We rented the Victorian Villa and Apartment. It seemed really reasonably priced compared with other similar options so I wasn't sure what to expect.

“Some rooms face a busy street, so choose one of the rooms with a view over the back garden. They are lovely and quiet.”

“Their rooms are available on their website with pictures - they are accurate. Just be reminded they have 2 buildings, main block has en suite bathroom and second blocks has share bathrooms. Both blocks have share kitchens with sufficient equipments to make a decent meal for self-catering stays.”
