This place is all about the balcony. The view is outstanding across Leigh Woods, Ashton Court and across to the fields of around south Bristol. It makes for a lowly green outlook. Selection of beers is reasonable though service is renowned for being slow. Always plays big sports games.

Although one of the more expensive places we stayed during our Bristol UK visit, it was worth the good beds, fabulous bathroom (rain shower!!!! and newly renovated), great views (gorge and suspension bridge), 2 restaurants attached (handy), wonderful shopping a block away (Clifton village), buffet breakfast included, parking pass for nearby parking (street parking but was always room), and a...

I booked here in January ready for the Balloon Fiesta which has been on my bucket list for 15 years. The gorge view rooms were already full booked which as it happened didnt make much difference as we were hardly in the room. The hotel is in a spectacular location with great views from the terrace and the surrounding area... More

Just been back for a second visit to the Avon Gorge hotel - it was the Balloon fiesta so thought we would book a couple of nights as a weekend break away. Not disappointed!!! The hotel staff had held a favourite room for us, and the weather was gorgeous so an added bonus. From the moment we got there until... More

We booked a superior twin room with a gorge view over the Balloon Fiesta weekend and to be sure of the room I booked a year ago! The room we actually had was on the fourth floor with concrete balcony pillars blocking any view of the gorge whatsoever. Having spoken to reception about this as soon as I arrived I... More

Stayed one night for the Bristol Balloon Fiesta. Room very clean and quite spacious, but was on the 4th floor, facing the road, the only view was of a brick wall and it was very noisy at night. It was also very hot, despite the supplied fan. We were delighted to be given a Shaun the Sheep mug to keep... More
