Feel Special, Taste Local



As part of our continued commitment to improve levels of comfort and the quality of service, we would like to let you know that from 7th until 31st January 2019 we will be having some work carried out on the main building of the property. This won’t affect the use of the bedrooms in the annexed building.

We will continue serving breakfast on a regular basis to all our guests, however, on certain days breakfast will be served in the annexed building as per renovation necessities. Dinner service won’t be available but we have a variety of bars and restaurants at our doorstep, some of them within only a 2-minute walk away, and a number of take-away options. Please do let us know if you require assistance with dinner arrangements.

Botanica is a cosy restaurant located on the ground floor of one of the Victorian villas converted into an independent hotel.

The area of Clifton is famous for its hidden leafy squares and secret gardens. Drawing from its historical green surrounds, Botanica is devoted to bringing an ever-changing, seasonal menu of simply-cooked yet inspired dishes to the Bristol table.

We combine local produce with spices and flavours from around Europe. Our menu showcases organic vegetables, fruits, smartly raised and sourced meat and seafood too. It is vibrant and colourful, fresh and moreish.

We are open 6:00pm-9:00pm Monday to Friday, also to non-residents! Until further notice, our restaurant will be closed on Saturday and Sunday nights. Please contact us on 0117 973 9058 or botanica@victoriasquarehotel.co.uk to reserve your table. If you feel the lure of a pizza night at home, we are offering pizzas to take away!
