— Nuno Minhoto, Braganca, Portugal, October 2015
We really enjoyed our stay in Room 2. The proximity to the University was perfect and the walk to any other part of Bristol pleasant and not long. Both the house and our room were really clean. Kitchen had plenty of necessities for cooking. Everything is very well organised, including all the necessary supplies, extra towels or linen. We especially liked the view to the garden, both as we woke up in the morning and later, when we had breakfast in the warm quietness of the conservatory.
With best wishes

— Saulo Vasquez, University of Santiago de Compostela, July 2015
Dear Kiran and Tamsin,
It has been a wonderful stay here, we really felt like being at home!! Lovely room to stay, beautiful garden (ideal for summer bbqs) and a fantastic kitchen with everything. The house is ideally located from our work place at the Uni, very close to the bus station and from the beautiful Durdham Downs which was our evening hang-out place; after a long tiring day this was the best place to relax! The best prt of our stay was that we got a wonderful opportunity to meet with so many wonderful people from different parts of the world and interact with them.
Overall it has been a very satisfying experience and we really look forward to coming back again next year. With best wishes

— Anne Glenn, Guildford College, Greensboro, NC, July 2015
Dear Ladies,
This Spring in Bristol has meant to us a great period in our student lives. This lovely house makes easier all our stay in the University as it is located between the Campus and Clifton Village, an area with a really nice atmosphere and full of tiny stores where you can find really nice products such as a real Indian curry, a delicious felafel pitta or just local organic vegetables. I would say that this location makes the difference with other places. Another thing I personally find very interesting is the little garden, where on sunny days you can peacefully read a book on the grass. If the weather is not so good the conservatory also works for meetings.
There are many other experiences to share but for the moment and until the next time we visit Bristol, we want to desire you, Kiran and Tamsin, the best.
— The Spanish Guys, Paco and Carlos, Nov 2014 and Spring 2015
Thank you for your kind hospitality and very nice accommodation. I hope to stay here again on my next visit. Until then I send best wishes to you and guests at 178.
— Mark Wilhelm, March 2015, Richmond, Indiana, USA
My stay at 178 was great and I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here. The house is very neat and comfortable with all the facilities you may need. I think the location is one of the best features since it is in a very nice neighbourhood and is walking distance from the centre and many other nice places to see. I would also highly recommend Tiffins across the street, they have incredible Indian food!
— Jorien Treur, January 2015, VU University, Amsterdam
We were in the lovely room 4 for several days while my husband did some research at the University. Bristol is a delight and the accommodation at 178 was perfect. Thank you for the greeting, attention to detail, clean and calm environment and the generous fruit bowl. Only regret is that we did not have longer!
— Jim and Camille Lancaster, January 2015, Appalachian University
Dear Kiran and Tamsin, After 3 months here I can say that I had a really good time in Bristol. The house is very comfortable and in my time here I met a lot of lovely people - I’m very proud with mixing with so many cultures! You were always very kind and helpful - I’m going to miss this place!

Your guest house is wonderfully decorated, truly homely and equipped with the necessities for a comfortable stay. I appreciated that extra step taken to receive me which you took by providing such good quality tea, coffee, fruit and biscuits, as well as by taking the time to meet me and ensure that I could operate the household appliances. For the traveller, the feeling of being genuinely welcome is priceless. The close proximity to my University office and to a supermarket sealed a well-rounded proposal.
— Etienne Depasquale, March 2014, IEEE.org

Dear Tamsin and Kiran,

— Bob Steele, July 2014, University of California
178 St Michaels Hill is ideally located, with only a 5 minute walk to the University and town centre. The room on the top floor was very spacious with a lovely en-suite bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need, and the washing machine/dryer is very handy for longer stays. I had a great stay at the house and I got to make friends with other academics visiting the Uni, one of which I am now collaborating on a project with. I would recommend 178 to anyone, whether it’s for a few days or a few months, and I will definitely stay again later in the year.
