We booked out the Victorian villa (including basement flat) for my hen weekend. It worked really really well. Location: whilst not very very central it's perfectly easy to get into town in a 10-12min drive. Taxis/ubers plentiful and £10-15. Plenty of supermarkets (and takeaway type restaurants) really close. Facilities: Communal kitchen/lounge area worked really well, plenty of room for us...

We stayed here for a hen weekend and found the house to be excellent. We had originally booked the apartment but the owners gave us a free upgrade to the larger house on the day. We thought that was fantastic as they didn't have to do that for us at all. Communication from the owners was excellent from point of...

I booked an apartment at the base which sleeps 6 for some friends who were visiting. I am unsure as to why you would use The Base otherwise as it's location is poor in relation to Bristol but I live near here so was suitable for me. The booking was made late and I did get a discount for the...

So...the facts: We accepted your booking for New Year's Eve, which was only for 1 night even though we have a 2 night minimum term. There were at least 6 of you in a large apartment, we granted you a discount after you asked for it based on you leaving the apartment as you found it. You left the apartment...

I had booked this accommodation several months ago for my best friends hen do! There was 18 girls in total so we rented the entire Victorian villa as well as the apartment underneath it.

Spent a weekend here for a hen do and was very impressed with the space we had, especially in communal areas. Kitchen was well equipped and you can easily cook in it for a large group. The only thing I would say to bring if you are staying here is your own towel. The Base does provide towels but ours...

The Base is a great choice for a hen weekend in Bristol. We rented the Victorian Villa and Apartment. It seemed really reasonably priced compared with other similar options so I wasn't sure what to expect. It turned out to be exactly right for us - plenty of space for everyone in the living room/kitchen and good to have some...

I had the most amazing hen weekend staying at the base, great spacious rooms and great location. Very clean and comfy beds . Brilliant place to stay 👍 we enjoyed the dug in trampoline and the conservatory. Short drive from Bristol town centre

There were 21 of us staying at the base with 3 extras joining us in the evenings and there was enough space for us all! I was nervous, because I think the photos make it look smaller than it is. The main living room in the Victorian villa is large and there are loads of extra fold up chairs, so...

This was the perfect weekend accommodation for our group of hens, the rooms were spotless and all situated close to each other, it felt like a home from home. Plenty of room all facilities I provided and decorated beautifully. We all felt so comfortable and happy with what we had payed for. Perfect for a family getaway very close to...

“Some rooms face a busy street, so choose one of the rooms with a view over the back garden. They are lovely and quiet.”

“Their rooms are available on their website with pictures - they are accurate. Just be reminded they have 2 buildings, main block has en suite bathroom and second blocks has share bathrooms. Both blocks have share kitchens with sufficient equipments to make a decent meal for self-catering stays.”
