Brooks Guesthouse

Last updated: 05 January, 2024

If you like to be in the thick of things, book a stay at Brooks, a relaxed boutique guesthouse slap-bang in the heart of Bristol’s buzzy centre.

The 27 bedrooms here are simple but cosy – think big squishy duvets, power showers and a breakfast picnic basket – but

It seems a shame to come to Brooks’ and not treat yourself to a stay in one of the four gleaming Retro Rocket airstream caravans on the grassy roof.

Brooks call this ‘urban glamping’ – inside each caravan is a double bed, a seating area and a bathroom. They may not be super roomy, but these vintage beauties make a stay in central Bristol tremendous fun, and offer panoramic views over the city.

Surrounding area

Tucked away down a quiet lane, Brooks manages to be right at the heart of the city, while still feeling like something of an oasis.

The surrounding lattice of streets have a relaxed, bohemian vibe, with St Nicks Market, where fresh global goodies are cooked up daily, right on the doorstep and Corn Street’s variety of bars and restaurants are only steps away.

Brooks is here for a good time – but not for an especially quiet one, as you’re right in the heart of a busy market street by day and the centre of some of Bristol’s best bars by night.

Expect some hubbub. That said, this is the safe and friendly heart of the city, so it’s ideal for anyone keen to pop in and out to sample the city by night.

The beautiful Harbourside is a few minutes’ walk away – head to the water’s edge for an evening cocktail while watching the sun set.
