About Gordon Hathway

We are an Anglo-Norwegian couple with many years experience of renting holiday homes both as owners in the UK and as agents for properties abroad.

Gordon Hathway purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Gordon Hathway chose Somerset

One of us was born and educated in Bristol and it's wonderful to see how much central Bristol has evolved into a truly great city in recent years. We chose this apartment for its space and practical layout, and for its central location with almost everything within easy walking distance.

What makes this apartment unique

The huge windows flood the apartment with light and the panoramic view over the rooftops of central Bristol is fantastic.

Lovely Apartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely, well equipped apartment in the heart of the city, close to shops, bars, restaurants and centrally located to enjoy all Bristol and the surrounding area has to offer. Information on how to access the apartment was easy to follow and the added luxury of a parking space in the city centre was appreciated (my Mazda 2 just fit in the space!). Great public transport links led to day trips to Bath and Weston-Super-Mare and we particularly enjoyed the Blackbeard to Banksy walking tour in Bristol. We would not hesitate to book the apartment again on our next visit. Thank you Gordon and Bo

Pleasant apartment in the centre of Bristol

  • 5 of 5

Tastefully furnished, neat clean tidy and comfortable accommodation. Good position in the city with easy access to sites, museums, restaurants and bars. Very comfortable relaxed stay. A little noisy in the early hours with street recycling collections but the ear plugs worked well. Good to have to availability of an underground parking space but access to it could be tricky if others have parked untidily our small car was a bonus.

Wonderful Bristol Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I met a man from Bristol at an airport a few months back. And he said "I really don't understand why more people don't come to Bristol for a holiday".

Well. My husband, my brother and I decided to give it a try and are we glad we did. And the bonus is that we stayed at this lovely apartment. Just as the man at the airport described, Bristol has a lovely city center and many places to visit. Staying at this apartment made seeing the local sites very easy, due to it's central location. The SS Great Britain, St. Nick's market, Bristol Cathedral, a show at the Hippodrome Theater, and the Clifton Suspension bridge were all easily accessible from our location. And the coach station and rail station can be quickly reached for transit to outlying cities and sites.

With public transit so conveniently obtained, there are many day trip possibilities, even without a car. We found Exeter, Hereford, and Cardiff an easy train ride away. And the bus goes directly from Bristol to Wells city center; another day trip worth enjoying. And while in Wales, we greatly enjoyed a tour of the beautiful Gower Peninsula.

The apartment is lovely, quiet, and provides private spaces as well as gathering areas for travel mates with all the conveniences and comforts of home. We also enjoyed the view from the balcony before we headed out in the morning, and upon our return late in the evening. The building is well maintained and on a quiet side street, yet close to shops for quick groceries, and all the choices required for a meal or a pint in the evening.

We enjoyed our stay very much. And would not hesitate to recommend this apartment. It was a calm, quiet, nicely appointed and well supplied home away from home at the end of each busy day we spent in and around the Bristol area.

And now, we too really don't understand why more people don't come to Bristol for a holiday.

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 7 day family (3 adults) holiday in Bristol, staying in this clean, well appointed 2 bedroom apartment in the center of Bristol. The apartment was very comfortable with everything we needed for a completely relaxed vacation. It's central location within easy walking distance to many good restaurants, shopping areas, and major transportation terminals made getting around Bristol easy and hassle free. Gordon, the owner, provided independent access and very useful information for our stay in the apartment as well as for exploring Bristol, Bath, and the surrounding areas. We give this apartment high marks in every category.

Bristol has been transformed in recent years into a world-class city with a fascinating fusion of old and modern architecture, waterside amenities, shopping, nightlife and culture. The apartment is right in the city centre with nearly all of Bristol's most famous sights and attractions plus excellent bus and ferry services just a short walk away.

The historic city of Bath is less than 15 minutes by train or 50 minutes by bus almost from the doorstep.

Bristol is also an ideal base for day trips around the West Country and South Wales, with or without a car.
