I love Bristol especially Clifton I lived there for a couple of years and it has a special place in my heart. I was especially excited to be staying at this hotel which has a fantastic view from the terrace over the bridge and is ideally located for a short stroll into Clifton Village. I was staying here with some...

Beautiful location, great views, good beer and good pizzas.......sadly though the lack of bar staff makes ordering drinks painful.....it was like queuing up in the Post Office! As good as the place is the service would make me think twice about going back. Even before it was revamped it has always had a problem with the speed of service. Crazy...

We were not stating in the hotel but we were invited for lunch in the Bridge Restaurant with a party of friends and frankly we were not too impressed. Work was being undertaken as part of the hotel refurbishment and the meal was eaten with a background of noisy work, with workmen passing through the back of the restaurant. The...

Really comfortable bed, I loved all the little touches. Luxury shampoo and conditioner, shower gel and body lotion. Nespresso machine was also a lovely...

Stayed for one night on local business. Recently refurbished room which still smelled faintly of wet paint, rain shower and Nespresso machine were nice touches. Great service throughout. Food was good but a bit pricey. Wide breakfast choice and really enjoyed salmon eggs Benedict. NB: bit of a walk from car park to reception, you may want to check out...

Stayed for one night on business, with colleagues, and arranged for a meeting room on the second day. Having previously lived in Bristol, I was a little hesitant to book the Avon Gorge for a group of business colleagues, as it had always struck me as a place that simply traded off of it's (admittedly very fine) view from the...

A convenient hostelry for lunch with a superb view of the Gorge. We were very fortunate to be there on a hot sunny day and relaxed in chairs on the Terrace afterwards. Luncheon was OK and the seafood buffet very good. There is a pub adjoining and it is a very popular spot.

We were upgraded to a superior room with balcony and a lovely view across the gorge and the bridge. We had a excellent meal in the restaurant with friends ,albeit a little overpriced the good was good. The...

Not a good start to our visit to the Avon Gorge. Despite its stunning location, we were let down on arrival by rooms not being ready (despite it being past check in time) 1and a half hrs later room is ready.....and realise that it wasn't housekeeping causing the delay....the room wasn't finished! As part of the refurbished floor my teenagers...
