Generally good. Spacious comfortable room, great bed. Bathroom paintwork a little tired and dirty glass from previous occupant left beside sink. Lovely view over gorge despite terrible weather. Downsides were: lift out of order, a bit of a slog up and down to third floor. Full hotel for grad weekend/wedding etc meant busy breakfast and despite staff's best efforts, hot... More

Our room had a splendid view of the Clifton Suspension Bridge. It was clean and tidy but the bed was much too soft for our tastes. Almost bouncy! If one of us turned over the other knew about it!! It's a shame some hotels insist on leaving lights blazing all night inside and out. The curtains were heavy and obscured... More

Location is great, plenty of restaurants, the view is incomparable. A 25 minute walk into Bristol City Center or a very affordable bus ride takes 5 minutes. The terrace is the place to visit if you can't grab a room there.

We stayed at the Avon Gorge to enjoy the views and to have good access to Clifton. The positives include the position, access to Clifton and a decent breakfast. The negatives include terrible parking, a very poorly ventilated room and a rock hard bed. An over-rated hotel.

Sitting atop of the Avon Gorge, this hotel has one of the best settings in the UK. With Clifton Village behind it, and the city centre only minutes away, The Avon Gorge Hotel is perfectly located for exploring the wonderful city of Bristol. From the hotel, there are spectacular views of the Gorge, Brunel's Clifton Suspension Bridge and the city... More

This Hotel is in a brilliant location for visits/views of Clifton/ Suspention bridge. The rooms were well equipped and spacious (we upgraded to bridge view). The cleaners done an excellent job. The reception staff, although friendly were im afraid not very efficient. We had several genuine and not unreasonable requests which werent done.. One request was for a bottle of... More

In general this was an excellent choice for an extended family celebration.. The hotel is well appointed and the beds so comfy. It's a great location and our stay was eventually very comfortable. Took aminute to find tea,coffee, chocolate and biscuits hidden in cupboard though. Good size towels and despite a bit of a trek from Reception, room was ok..... More

Great location but average accommodation. large room good wardrobe shortage of hangers. There was no chest of drawers despite masses of space in the room so nowhere to store clothing, underwear, teeshirts etc. we were there for 2 nights. No water in the room and no facilities for keeping water cool, our UHT milk was even sour! On one occasion... More
