I stayed here with 5 friends for 2 nights and we all thought it was a really great place. The Maisonette was much bigger than I expected and there was plenty of room for us all.
It was clean and comfortable. There was also plenty of cooking equipment, bedding and towels. So it would also suit someone staying longer.
We knew the area well, so although it’s a bit of a way from the city centre, there’s a bus stop close by. It’s also really close to Gloucester Road.
The only negatives we could find was the shower head wouldn’t stay up and the kettle needed cleaning. But these are only very minor issues and it wouldn’t put me off staying again.
The owner was very helpful and because of the snow, allowed to check out later, which we really appreciated.
Overall we felt it was very good value and we had a great weekend.
We have just returned from spending a week at this property and have absolutely loved it. There are 5 of us, myself, my husband, 18yr old, 13yrold and 7yr old and the flat was perfect for us. Erik was a great host - prior to the stay, I had a few questions which he answered swiftly, and, when we got there, he met us, showed us around and had left a pint of milk, a bottle of wine and some delicious homemade cake for us too.
The flat is quiet and the facilities are great - wifi, TV and DVD player, washing machine and dryer if you want to wash clothes etc. We never had any trouble parking the car on the road - often right outside the entrance. Erik is very helpful if you have any queries during the week. All the beds - including the sofa bed in the lounge - are very comfortable. Would definitely recommend this to others!
The location is ideal - just outside of the main city centre, with plenty of places to eat within walking distance, plus a park and a swimming pool within 5 minutes. Erik has compiled a very comprehensive folder with info about the area. There's loads to do in Bristol - our kids are at very different ages, but we managed to find plenty to do on a tight budget. Highlights include MShed (a free museum on the docks), SS Great Britain (a tad pricey to go in, but worth it), Za Za Bazaar ( a buffet style restaurant with something for everyone) and Tyntesfield (a NT place just outside of Bristol - you have to cross Clifton Suspension bridge which is a bonus). We also went across the Severn bridge to Wales(£6.50 toll - you don't pay on the way back) and visited the swimming pool at Newport Centre which I went to as a child. It's about a 40min trip - the kids liked going over the bridge - but the pool is a council run one so very, very cheap and has a great big slide and a wave machine.
All in all, it was a great trip!

We stand here for a week with 2 children and were very happy. The flat is clean and nicely decorated. The owner who lives next door is friendly, helpful, and easily contactable. A short walk away are a small playground, a bus stop and a grocery store. We had a car which we parked outside the flat and we also used the buses to get into the city center. What more could you want? We plan to return next year for a longer stay.
Myself and 5 friends recently stayed here during a long weekend and couldn't have had a better stay. Extremely comfortable rooms and living area with all mod cons. The location was fab and the friendliness and local knowledge of the owner made this a 5 star stay. Would not hesitate to stay again or recommend to others.
The host was fantastic. The apartment had everything we needed to make an excellent stay for a long weekend. We loved the brownies and bottle of red wine that was left for us. Excellent location and ample parking.
