We came here for a weekend away in Bristol and stayed for one night. We upgraded to the superior gorge view room and we're not disappointed. We were put in one of the newly decorated rooms. Very clean and tastefully designed. The bathroom was tiled floor to ceiling and acted as a sort of wet room. There were plenty of... More

Great location, disappointing hotel. On entering the bar on a pleasant sunday afternoon, we were confronted by a large group of inebriated yobs, one of whom attempted to dance with me. The singing, shouting and swearing upset people, some with children. These men were clearly there to intimidate and cause disturbance, but the staff did NOTHING despite repeated complaints from...

A comfortable and clean hotel right next to Clifton suspension bridge. The views from the terrace are amazing.The room we had ( 315) had a gorge and bridge view and was clean and tasteful in decor. Breakfast has everything for you whatever your taste and appetite.

Stayed here from Mon-Thurs this week. A business trip for my husband and a little break for me. Stayed in room 128 and loved the room. Very spacious and well presented.Not luxury but doesn't claim to be. Top end of 3 star.The cherry on the icing is the enormous balcony this room has, with wonderful views of the Clifton Bridge...

What a great location, the Clifton area is very nice, reminded us of Bath. This is a really nice traditional hotel maybe a little faded in some areas, but mostly very good décor. The bedrooms are clean spacious and looked newly refurbished. We had two evening meals , food and service was excellent. The breakfast was very good, nice to... More

We had planned to spend our 25th Wedding Anniversary in this hotel but discovered that due to the hotel over booking the restaurant we were unable to eat there both on Saturday and Sunday. I understand that it was Mother's Day weekend and everywhere is busy but no provision was made to accommodate residents. We left the hotel on the... More

Stayed here for one night only and whilst the lift and outside could do with a lick of paint, the rooms have been refurbished and are very good and adequately appointed. Booking over the phone was a good experience with the friendly and helpful receptionist (Martha). On arrival ( late arrival ) the staff were very helpful, providing sandwiches and... More

The hotel is a very old building and is structured typically for this type with long corridors and steps inside leading to the rooms. This is not really suitable for anyone in a wheelchair. The reception was very bright and the staff extremely hospitable and helpful. The rooms we had were spacious, very clean with all modern facilities in an... More

We made a last minute decision to book here to attend our sons birthday celebrations nearby. We managed to get a space in the car park but be warned, it is a bit tricky exiting as narrow and steep. Check in was efficient and friendly. Our double room was very good, spotlessly clean and spacious. Good bathroom facilities and again,... More

Booked hotel for two night stay while attending a family wedding. Paid extra for a gorge view room. It could be argued that we could see the gorge if we peered through the high bushes,or we could see the bridge if we stood in the window and looked sidewise! On the first morning our ordered tea and coffee did not... More
