The best affordable boutique hotel in Bristol


The Rodney Hotel is one of the best venues for boutique, affordable overnight accommodation in Bristol.  Situated in a fantastic location, this friendly and welcoming hotel is a short walk from Brunel’s famous Suspension Bridge, and in the heart of Clifton Village – a stunning historical town with a lively atmosphere and plenty of amenities.   The Rodney offers excellent room rates and food/drink prices, all presented by a friendly and knowledgeable team of staff.


Within a mile of The Rodney, you’ll find a fantastic range of entertainment and attractions, including the Cabot Circus shopping centre, At-Bristol, the Arnolfini Modern Art Gallery, The Bristol Hippodrome, Brunel’s SS Great Britain and of course, the city’s famous Waterfront.  Transport is also well taken care of as Bristol has a good (and constant) network of trains, buses and cabs, and The University of Bristol is just a 5 minute drive away.

This is a small but perfectly formed hotel, offering just 31 rooms.  The rooms are, however, spacious and well appointed – with excellent facilities for both clients on business and families on pleasure, including mini-bars, tea and coffee, flat screen TVs, toiletries and WiFi.


The hotel is also home to The No 4 Restaurant, which has won AA rosette awards for its dinners and seasonal menus.  An enticing range of Mediterranean and Classic French cuisine is all prepared using locally sourced ingredients, and all guests are entitled to a 15% discount on the already inexpensive yet good quality menu.  The Restaurant itself has been modernised extensively, but still retains many of its original Georgian Townhouse features, including a working open fireplace and tall sash windows that cover all of one wall in the room, looking out over the attractive sculpted front garden.

For evening drinks, The No.4 Bar is an inviting and comfortable room for a tipple or two whilst overlooking the lit-up and exceptionally pretty walled garden.  Perfect for private hire, there’s direct access from the bar to a secluded sun-trap spot on the lawn, providing plenty of flexible indoor & outdoor space for a drinks reception of 100 people.  Contact us here to learn more about hosting an event at No4.


There are also 2 large meeting rooms on site, which are available for meetings, lectures and small conferences of up to 45 people in theatre style.  The rooms are stylish and practical, but not exactly well equipped – you’ll have basic AV equipment, but we at Function Fixers recommend checking with the venue about your requirements prior to your event.  Catering and room hire packages are available – find out more here.


Function Fixers have a huge range of conference centres, corporate venues, bars and restaurants on our database that are set in Bristol, and this lively yet secretive town is certainly more enjoyable if you know where to go.  Some of the tourist places and corporate venues at the top of a Google search can be a little run down and cheap, but we’re familiar with tried and tested venues all over the city that we are confident will deliver a fantastic service at fair prices.  Call us today to find out more!
