“A real little gem between the bustle of Clifton and the downs”
Reviewed 25 July 2011

This is a brand new 'boutique B&B" - not to be confused with the guesthouse that was at this address until very recently. The attractive Merchants House has been completely refurbished - and designed to a very high standard - resulting in comfortable and stylish accommodation which is run by a very efficient and friendly manager.
The restaurants and bustle of Clifton are a few minutes walk and the views from the house - either over the city rooftops of across the downs are lovely. Rooms are all individual and have nice little touches - fresh milk in the fridge, huge showers and blissfully comfortable beds. And don't miss breakfast!
Perfect for a weekend away - we will definitely be back!

Reviewed 20 July 2011

Flying solo, I just wanted to get away from the city, get some country air, inspiration and work in tranquility.........An extremely spacious and calming bedroom, gloriously comfy bed, ensuite bathroom with free standing sunken bath and panoramic views did the trick perfectly. (Room 5 )

A beautifully cooked breakfast and plenty of tempting buffet options, with locally sourced food, was more than expected and the staff were very efficient and friendly and being on my own I felt extremely at ease and relaxed within the premisses.

They also have a garden courtyard with comfy sofas - a great little sun trap!....

Quite a little find that I will definitely be returning to....... also perfect to share with another!

Room Tip: Each room has its own signature style...flying solo- room 5, special room for couples 1 and 2!!! !!
