Great location overlooking the Avon Gorge....hence the name :-). Large, delightful rooms, looking a little worn. Decent bathroom. Breakfast room somewhat cramped; breakfast itself good. We had a family room for my wife, 12 and 8-year old and there was loads of space in the room (number 320). If the owners spent a few million on it, this hotel could... More

Stayed a long weekend and just didn't want to come back, specially because "caught" a warm spell of 20ºC temp in April during the whole stay. Could just go on but best for everyone to discover on their own!

Planned a trip to the zoo and a little overnight stay . Have to say I am more than impressed . The hotel is fabulous and the view from the terrace is second to none. Was offered an upgrade and so glad I did as our balcony was overlooking the gorge and bridge . Breakfast was scrumptious and staff lovely.... More

Lovely hotel with very welcoming staff. Small car park at rear but if there is no room reception will give you a parking permit for residents parking on the road. Lovely large bedroom with gorge views, good bathroom with everything you need, large towels, toiletries and hairdryer. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Everywhere clean. Excellent location, good bus... More

Couldn't fault our stay in March. Service very good and the reception team even recommended a restaurant and ordered us a cab. We booked a dog friendly room, which although it was £20 extra it was a lovely big and quiet room with a separate entrance and they even included a dog bed and bowl. The bed was very comfy... More

This hotel is situated right on the edge of the Avon Gorge with a stunning view of the Suspension Bridge - it is worth paying a little extra for a room with a 'Gorge View'. The Bridge Restaurant serves excellent food, too. We found ourselves in Room 230, which is directly above the kitchen vents - so if you open... More

stayed here for two nights for a wedding. The room was small and incredibly hot. The window sliding door (internal and additional to the external sash) didn't fit flush so continually banged throughout the night. The bathroom was lovely other than the cheap white Venetian blind which spoilt the recent makeover. The breakfast was ok but the bacon and mushrooms... More

Dear JulesnJosh, Thank you for your review, I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. I have passed on your comments to the Bar and Restaurant Managers so that they can address this with their teams.

We really enjoyed our stay and the weather was sunny so we had drinks on the terrace which was stunning. You have a gem in Marrianna who is a credit to your hotel. We liked staying in Clifton rather than Bristol which can be noisy in the early hours.

The mark of a good firm is not that they never make mistakes but how they resolve mistakes when they do make them. I have probably stayed in this hotel 12 times over the years. I keep coming back because it is usually comfortable, good value and in a stunning location, notwithstanding the odd problems with parking. I stayed there... More

Dear brenthambrother. Thank you for your kind review, I am pleased to hear that following your first uncomfortable night we made this up to you. Reacting to guest comments is essential and I am pleased that my team were able to do this. I have passed on the maintenance issues to our electrician who will look into this. Many thanks,... More
