We chose this property based on its location. It was central to the areas we were visiting and seemed to be in a great spot in Bristol right on the river bank near a lovely park. Unfortunately, the location turned out to be the biggest downfall of this place. Late night bar-hoppers and early morning garbage collectors proved to be our undoing. This property has no air-conditioning, so for a stay in the summer, open windows were a necessity. The room was comfortably cool at night so that wasn´t the issue. The issue was having to keep windows open so that all the noise from below could float up our way late into the night (or shall I say early morning until about 2 a.m.). Then sometime between 7 and 8 a.m., the garbage collectors would dump all those glass bottles into their bins. The property managers obviously knew of the noise because they provided us with complimentary earplugs! No kidding, we found them on the bed upon arrival. Oh, and the bed was advertised as a KING sized bed for the three studio apartments we rented, but none of them had a king sized bed at all. I am sad to give such a low rating because the property itself is lovely, clean and well managed. But as they say... location, location, location. If you must rent from this property, then request rooms that are NOT facing the river.
