Jerome and Archie went above and beyond making Rodger feel like one of the family. Nothing was too much effort for them and they have become good friends in the process.
We had a good time in Jerome's house, Jerome and Archie are friendly and nice. Son una familia estupenda y muy acogedora y la casa muy confortable nos han atendido en todo momento durante nuestra estancia.
Jerome and Archie's house is a quick cycle ride from the city centre (along the flat bit!) and no problem storing my folding bike. My room was clean and warm, the bed was comfy and there was space to store/hang stuff. Bathroom was close and fine. I was made very welcome and left to get on with it. There are some interesting streets and neighbourhoods on yr way to and from the city centre. I loved Bristol so was out early and back late. Tip top
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Ésta ha sido nuestra primera experiencia con Homestay y no podríamos estar más satisfechos. Con Jerome, Archie, Josh y Tammy nos hemos sentido parte de la familia todo el tiempo. Nos han ayudado en todo lo posible, hemos hablado de casi todo e incluso hemos comido y cenado juntos como una auténtica familia. Han sido muy amables en todo momento, incluso nos llevaron a la estación de autobús el día que nos marchamos. La convivencia ha sido magnífica, la casa está muy limpia y ordenada y está en un barrio muy tranquilo, pero con tiendas y supermercados muy cerca. Anfitriones totalmente recomendables, son un encanto, y si volviéramos a Bristol nos quedaríamos de nuevo con ellos.
It has been great to stay at Jerome and Archie's home. They are really kind and have a comfortable House, located in a quiet street near the city centre and with the bus stop at three minutes from home. They are also very helpful and Archie is a great cook!! Thank you for being so nice!!!
We won't hesitate to come back again if we go to Bristol some day.

My stay at Archie and Jerome's home was very nice !
Their home is a very sweetie place, comfortable and relaxing. You also have to enjoy their garden ! The bed was very comfortable !
The family was very present and had time to share which was nice to improve my english.
For £3 Archie made gorgious vegetarian dinners every evening !
By walk it takes about 30 minutes to go to the city center of Bristol.
I would of course recommand this place !
My first home stay was at this beautiful home, the hosts Archie and Jerome are such a lovely couple and made me and my partner feel so at home. They are friendly and went the extra mile to make sure our stay was perfect. The room was cosy and the bed was comfortable. We would definitely recommend this for anyone who's looking for somewhere affordable but amazing. We would definitely stay there again in the future. Thank you Archie and Jerome
Clean and comfortable place to stay at a good price, Jerome and Archie were both very welcoming, would recommend.
I wanted to give them 30 hearts but the site doesn't allow it. They are a good,kind and pleasant family. I had a perfect stay and I didn't miss nothing. They are always available. The house is really clean and the room is comfortable. I spent my first week in Bristol with them and I couldn't start better my experience.
