Situated in a lovely area of Bristol......a bus ride from the centre and close to Clifton, and close to Gloucester Road, which is where I was intersested in....lots of interesting independent shops. I needed somewhere which was not too expensive, and this place certainly met that bill....a very economical place to be. I mean to say, what do you expect... More

I stayed here for a weekend friend with my friend and really enjoyed my stay. It lived up to its name of Toad Lodge - there was toad carpet, toad bedspreads and even a toad bin, We walked in and were greeted by the lovely, eccentric landlady. She was very friendly and welcoming, be aware they only accept cash. The... More

I only spent one night but I fell in love with the place; and with the sweet old pair who run it, who reminded me of retired theatre actors from a bygone age. The man of the house serves breakfast like a dear old family butler, and the rooms in this fine Georgian Bristol town house are full of character.... More

I chose Toad Lodge based on a convenient location and a competitive price. The reviews online were definitely mixed, though, so I was a little concerned when I arrived that I might be in for a bumpy ride. But Toad Lodge was *great*. The room was freshly redone and very clean; beds comfortable; garden gorgeous; (outdoor) cats charming; clean towels... More

I stayed at Toad Lodge for a period of 3 months when I first came to work in Bristol several years ago. I loved it immediately. It is a beautiful house (if a little shabby) in a lovely area and the many toad decorations are just charming. Over the period of my stay I came to know the owners quite... More

First of all, when I booked my room on the phone for one night and was just asking whether there are more nights available, I wasn't treated nicely and was asked whether that I was still staying that night or not. Arriving at the place, a distinct smell of urine welcomed me and the lady who asked me to pay... More
