We stayed here as part of a two night red letter day gift we received. Booking it was very simple, we contacted the guest house, gave our desired dates and the rest was taken care of.
Southville guest house is the perfect base for exploring Bristol, and also a 30minute drive from Bath. We spent two days in bath and one in Bristol although we could've easily done it the other way around too.
Room number 6: very big and spacious (one double and a bunk included) with TV, teas and coffees, hair dryer and bathroom. The shower is brilliant, as I'm over 6ft3 and had no problem fitting in the shower which was powerful and always hot.
Facilities: there are two kitchen areas which house the breakfast in mornings. We woke up late (10am) one morning and were still able to have breakfast which was brilliant. Loads of board games, spare shampoos etc, local guide books/maps all available. Iron and ironing board also available for use. Note - there are a variety of teas available and also several different milk and butter options to cater for intolerances etc. Having soya milk was a nice bonus and saved me going to the shop to buy some.
Host: Tracy is fantastic and it is refreshing to meet such a nice person. She has time for all of her guests and helps with any local advice needed. Tracys communication from booking to check out ensured a smooth process and was welcome.
Parking: we paid for the guest house parking which was spacious and hastle free. The streets are busy, hard to find spaces and restricted so this was a no brainer. The location of guesthouse is great, ten minute walk to get into the centre. It was easier to keep our car parked at the guest house (£5a day) than park two mins closer at £3 an hour.
Would stay again and certainly recommend
After initial hiccups experienced in Bristol (we've found our Hotel we've booked closed down!), we came across Southville Guest House and with it a beautiful person that gave us a roof to sleep under, without asking even cards details or payment upfront, trusting us and taking our word for it, which is simply amazing, even more in these awkward times. Tracy gave us a really spacious room, with a bathroom ensuite, placed at the rear of the building, therefore quiet and ventilated: we could truly rest after our long walks through the amazing city that is Bristol. Breakfast is included and there were a lot of things to choose from, even gluten free bread! The kitchen is always open so it's possible to store some stuff in the fridge and get it at any time. It's minutes away from the marina, where you can find nice shops, great places to eat out and from there is a short walk to the city centre. We fell in love with this city with its architecture, art, street art, food and independent shops, we're going to visit it more and more and going to stay in Tracy's B&B for sure!!!!
I booked a room here after deciding to stay last minute in Bristol another night after visiting my son at uni, as I had some friends to see. The guest house is welcoming , modern and spotless. I booked an en-suite which was spacious with tv, tea/coffee facilities. The bed was clean and very comfortable. I didn’t have breakfast but the kitchen diner was fully stocked with cereals , fruits , jams etc. There’s a large table with ample seating. I would recommend the guest house for the great price and not far from the centre. Thanks and I’ll be back!
Perfectly located 30 mins walk from city centre, value for money, first time staying there, would go back there again. Tidy size bedrooms. Friendly staff, Short walk to the pubs, restaurants and attractions.
Our third stay @Southville and one of many more I'm sure. This time we stayed in the family room with ensuite.. Immaculate as always and perfect touches after a long drive.. A twix with my cuppa?! And even a tiny garden to sit out and have a cheeky gin if the weather was up to it?!!! 😆 ♥️
Tracey is a truely fabulous host.. As a worrier I always overtext and she is quick to respond and incredibly kind. Keycode boxes for the key access if Tracey isn't around.
Breakfast is a relaxed affair with everything you could possibly need..the nespresso always gets some hammer when I stay! comfy beds and peaceful.. What more could you ask for? Perfect.
