My mother and I stayed at Downlands recently whilst visiting my daughter who lives in Bristol. We had a twin room on the first floor. Everything was perfect, the welcome, the bedding, the room, the lovely sitting room and breakfast in the conservatory overlooking the beautiful courtyard garden. I'm a vegan and many B&B's struggle with the concept of providing a good breakfast but Patricia served a lovely, filling breakfast with absolutely no fuss and welcomed my daughter who arrived to meet us on the second day whilst we were still having breakfast, offering her a fresh pot of tea and toast. In the past I've travelled a lot with work, staying in small b&bs and large hotels and this one is very much at the top of the list. We managed to part right outside most of the time and within 100 yards on the only occasion we couldn't park in the same street as Downlands. Plenty to do and see in Henleaze and we felt very safe, also only a short drive into Clifton with all its shops etc - although parking can be a bit difficult there and if I were by myself I'd probably have just got the bus. Thank you Patricia for a lovely break.
