Loads of Murals/Street Art, Vintage/Retro shops & bars, Buddhist Centre, old fashioned Swimming Baths, City Farm.

15 min-25 min walk:
Tobacco Factory Theatre, M-shed Museum, Thekla boat-nightclub, Nelson Street graffitti, Banksy trail... Ashton Court Estate - a lovely walk and great for deer!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I had a wonderful time staying with Orla and Vince. They were both very accommodating, and we had many a great conversation and a few beers as well.

    It's only a short walk from the city center and the house itself is on a very quiet and lovely row of houses.

    See you soon!

  • Orla was a great friendly host, and the house was located close enough to the University to walk. Would recommend for anyone on a short stay to Bristol.

  • A very comfortable house only a short walk from the city centre. Restaurants, supermarkets, and public transport are all close by. The house is located in a quiet laneway, and the bed is very comfortable. Orla and Vince are friendly and welcoming. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Definitely a must if you plan to spend a few days in Bristol. The house is stylish and has everything you may need. What is more important, the neighborhood is really quite, so your rest is guaranteed. Besides, there are several super markets around the area. Hosts Orla and Vince are really nice and welcoming.

  • Perfect for me, welcoming and helpful host, place lived upto my expectations, great bookshelves, individual decor and furnishings. Reasonable walking distance from station, easy walk to @bristol (and Arnofolni, etc.) my destination. This place is lived in with individual decor and s/h furnishings, to me its great appeal but if you are after everything new and uniform it may not be for you.

  • Orla's place was very nice and quaint. She was not around when i arrive but her boyfriend Vince was around to help me open the door and carry my bag up. I was quite lost looking for their place, although very near to the main road, one could get very confused with all the small alleys, especially in the evening. Eventually i manage to meet her later that evening when she got back, she was very nice and welcoming. I had to do a course just across the street so her place was more than convenient for me, u can just take the bus if you wanted to go to the city. Overall i would recommend her place especially for solo travellers (i booked the single room) who needs something affordable in Bristol.

  • Place was nice to stay, I didnt have breakfast but it was offered!

    October 2013
  • The house is just a short bus ride away from the city centre so the location was ideal for me. The house is clean and colourful, and Orla is a very friendly host who made me feel welcome.

  • Orla was a great host! The location was perfect for walking to the city centre and around Southville. She was very accommodating, always up for a chat and did a great job of making me feel at home! I highly recommend staying here.

  • I stayed with Orla for a few weeks this August. She was a great host - friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area.
    Her cottage has loads of character, and the room was clean with a comfy bed and plenty of space. It's also in a great location - not far to walk into town and also really close to the bars, cafes and theatres of North street.
    Would definitely recommend it! Thanks 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 :)
