If this B&B had been £30 per night rather than £50 then my review would have been different rather than indifferent.
There are plenty of alternative B&B's for £30 pn in the Bristol area and most of them offer a more comfortable stay, a more substantial breakfast and you don't have to take your shoes off as you enter the door.
The setting at the Southwood is pleasant but I got the impression that the host does not want visitors in their home....'shoes off as you enter the door' and no front door key so you have to be back in your room before the door is locked.
The décor is dated but bed was clean and comfortable, the cooked breakfast was tiny, and I was only offered 1 slice of toast...it's a shame as some minor changes would make this a great place to stay.
I would not choose to stay here again...instead I have opted to stay in nearby alternatives which are cheaper.
