Fab city centre boutique bolthole – with a glamping option on the roof.
St Nicholas Street Bristol BS1 1UB 0117 930 0066
There's a lot that's surprising about Bristol's Brooks Guesthouse. First of all it's much more than just a guesthouse, with no less than 23 rooms, a boutique chic vibe and a fabulous location bang in the heart of Bristol, just a few minutes' walk from the waterfront. Its rooms are furnished in contemporary style with retro furniture, funky wallpaper and Shaker-style wood panelling, and generously equipped with goose down duvets and high-end bed linen, and – with IPod docking stations and digital radios, flatscreen TVs, DVDs and free wifi – you will be extremely comfortable in any of them. But just in case you fancy something different it's worth knowing that they also have a fleet of four retro-style Airstream caravans with en-suite bathrooms on the roof – that's right, rooftop glamping right in the middle of Bristol! The caravans, which are all handmade British affairs, range from a 16ft Rocket with a 4' 6" bed to a 20ft Rocket with a 5' bed and room for 2 little ones, and all have predictably great views over the city and beyond. Each has a small and very ingenious bathroom, low-energy heating and lighting and Roberts radios. Whether you're glamping or playing it safe in one of the downstairs bedrooms, breakfast is fab, with a choice of eggs multiple ways or the Full English. You may also be interested to know that the same people have more properties – one in nearby Bath and another in far-off Edinburgh – though neither, sadly, has a caravan on the roof. Yet.
