Stated at the hotel on a business trip and was very please with the beautifully styled room and friendly service. Mince pies and port were set up by the fireplace which made a lovely start to my evening. Breakfast was top quality and I found all the staff friendly and professional. I will defiantly stay here again.

Three years ago I enjoyed an amazing mini break at Number 38 with my husband, see ' perfect b&b ,' review. I returned with a friend several weeks ago. Lovely twin room, amazing breakfast and entrance to the Clifton Lido for £65 each, booked via Mr&Mrs Smith. Go now, with a great friend, relax and enjoy!

We have just returned from a two night stay at Number Thirty Eight and cannot recommend highly enough. Perfect location, beautiful and comfortable room and wonderful breakfasts. The staff were very helpful and friendly too. 5* rating and we will be back for our wedding anniversary again next year!

The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room we were in was huge and had an amazing bath. Everything is decorated beautifully. The breakfast was delicious. The park opposite is lovely for a walk. We even got a voucher to go to the lido in Clifton.

You only have to see all the five star reviews to know that Thirty-Eight is something special. Book a Loft Suite - fabulous views front and back and a huge comfortable room.The staff are extremely helpful. The cooked breakfast was one of the best I have ever had and was obviously cooked to order. I cannot recommend this hotel enough
