No meals are included, but I might offer whatever I'm having. Feel free to reciprocate if you have the opportunity, but no problem if not.
There's one bathroom, so check no-one needs to use it before having a shower or bath...
and be nice to the cat... she's very well behaved though :)
Orla was a lovely welcoming host, giving me a tour of the house and a cup of tea when I got in fairly late from a train. I stayed in the basement room, which is well kitted out with desk, clothes rail, shelves, hairdryer, and a large, comfy bed. No traffic noise as the room is away from any roads, and there is a decent blind so the room is dark. The house itself is about 20 minutes walk into the city centre over the river. I had two good nights here- thank you!
Nice hosts - I feel it was their home and they are sharing it with you. Thanks orla and vince !
Orla and Vince made me feel like home and showed the way around the kitchen and the rest of the property. The house was comfortable and lovely decorated. Bedminster is a lively place and the area well worth exploring and the city center is just 20 minute walk away. So regardless you are travelling for work or leisure, Orla will surely take care of you.
Orla was a perfect host. To greeting there was tea and we could take our dinner in her beautiful garden. We were three persons, two days, in one room. The space has fitted perfectly. Orla gave us wonderful tips where we can go. Since her house is quite central, we could run everything. We had a great stay and I highly recommend Bristol and Orlas accommodation!
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Orla, qui à notre arrivée nous a offert un thé et a pris le temps de discuter avec nous afin de faire connaissance et pour nous parler de Bristol.
Nous nous sommes peu vu par la suite.

C'est une maison d'artistes
A 15 mn à pied du centre ville.
I highly recommend staying with Orla if you plan on visiting Britol. It's a quick walk to the downtown area from her place where there are cathedrals, museums, and Banksies galore. What's more is that Orla is a gracious host that is fun to talk with. I felt an immediate comfort from her and her place that I feel would be unlikely had I stayed at any number of other places. Also, she was understanding of my beginners follies at Airbnbing. A true pro!

About the Host, Orla
I'm a self employed graphic designer, which occasionally leaves time for swing dancing, playing ukulele and writing the occasional environmental/socialist rant. I like meeting new people, live music, dancing, drinking tea and proper beer.
I've mostly forgotten how to speak French, Spanish, Japanese and Nepali, but I can stumble through a conversation if prompted :)
