Expect old-fashioned hospitality at The Rodney, a Georgian mansion of honey-hued stone located in the heart of Clifton Village and one of Bristol’s smartest addresses.

The simple bedrooms at the Rodney are perhaps the least exciting bit of your stay; small but clean and modern, with bright cushions and all mod cons.

Feel like a spot of supper closer to home one night? The Rodney also has its own restaurant, Number 4, downstairs in a rather gorgeous Georgian dining room, plus a pretty walled garden ideal for afternoon tea.

While this is a peaceful place to lay your head, you can still dip into city life – your next-door neighbours include wine bars, smart bakeries, cosy pubs, and some of the best of Bristol’s boutiques and delis.

Surrounding area

Charming Clifton Village is a world away from the rambunctious centre of the city.

Terraced rows of Georgian townhouses and side-streets jammed with market stalls, pastel-painted boutiques and independent coffee shops lead up the hill to quiet green parks and echoing Avon Gorge.

Pop into Primrose Cafe for coffee, get a view from on high from Clifton Suspension Bridge and then cool off at the Lido, a beautifully restored Victorian swimming pool.

Despite being slap-bang in the middle of some of Bristol’s most beautiful sights, The Rodney feels rather tucked away thanks to its own sweep of private drive.

A great spot for a good night’s sleep – but you can seek out lively bars and well-heeled locals dining out (literally) around the corner.
