Number 38 Clifton

Your basket is empty


A single red rose on the bed

NUMBER THIRTY EIGHT simply oozes Bristolian chic, from its nautical wood panelled walls and bold artworks to its huge copper baths and knockout views over the city’s rooftops.

Minutes from Clifton village – Bristol’s coolest quarter – this luxury townhouse B&B sits beside the Downs, the grassy common crowning Bristol’s open spaces, and near the city’s famous suspension bridge.

This one-time Georgian merchant’s home has been transformed into a boutique B&B with panache. There’s a hint of Bristol’s maritime past in Number Thirty Eight’s pigeon-grey wood panelling, sea grass carpets and dazzling Cornish art. You’ll find a lounge cum breakfast area for browsing through magazines and city guides, and a smart terrace at the rear made for kicking back in a rattan chair with a cocktail.

Loft suites

Bedrooms are blissful at Number Thirty Eight. Top billing goes to the two sumptuously sprawling Loft suites, whose double aspect sash windows frame views over both the city skyline and the Downs. Deep maritime colours – copper, charcoal and inky blue – make the West suite darkly atmospheric, while the East suite sports softer greys.

Both come with super kingsize beds and studded velvet headboards, huge copper bathtubs for two, retro chrome lamps and smart roman blinds. Showers are artfully hidden behind the wood panelling, while vaulted ceilings add a light and airy feel.

Other favourites include Room 5 (a Superior House room), Room 5, whose rolltop tub sits right by the window, and some of the cosy House rooms. All but three have big double ended rolltop bathtubs for two. Room 7, on the lower floor, has its own tiny hanging garden outside. All have the same trademark waffle robes, Ren bathroom toiletries, widescreen TV and wi-fi. Minibars – stocked with local apple juice and Green & Black organic chocs – also come as standard.

Nothing’s too much trouble for Number Thirty Eight’s friendly team. Stroll from here to Bristol Zoo, or into Clifton village with its array of coffee shops and restaurants. All the attractions of Bristol city centre are a short hop away by car or bus.
