Almost seven years since opening as Bristol’s first boutique townhouse accommodation, Number 38 Clifton has reopened, almost 50 per cent bigger.
This smart double-fronted Georgian merchant house overlooking Bristol’s iconic Downs now spills seamlessly into the next-door building.
Two large new suites have been added, as well as a stylish yet functional space for meetings or private dining.
At the same time the existing ten guestrooms and suites have been spruced up with extended services introduced for guests such as full room service ‘breakfast in bed’ and longer reception hours.
The stars of the reopening are undoubtedly Room 11 and Room 12.
Each has dual aspect views stretching out over Bristol’s rooftops to one side and the lefty Downs in the other direction and tops 55 sqm in size.
Guests could feel like they are literally floating above the city in another of Bristol’s icon, a hot air balloon.
This ‘best address in Bristol’ location puts guests within walking distance of Brunel’s iconic Suspension Bridge, the boutiques and cafes of Clifton Village and three Michelin starred restaurants.
The newly created meeting room on the ground floor is light and airy with, again, knock-out views in both directions.
The space comfortably suits up to 16 people for a small conference equipped with HTMI plug-in, 53-inch screen, conference phone, and climate control.
For more sociable gatherings this room can double up as for private dining.
The ground floor communal rooms showcase interesting artwork from West Country artists, many pieces from Bristol’s cultural quarter Stokes Croft.
