Really impressed with the hotel. Check-in very smooth and room was large and modern with fantastic views across the gorge. The outdoor bar looks fantastic for a summers day. There is plenty of nightlife a short walk, some really nice restaurants and places to chill. Enjoyed breakfast too, eggs benedict was on the money! Looking forward to going back.

Stayed one night 8/1/2016. Birthday surprise from husband. Had room overlooking bridge. Really big spacious room. Very clean. Big bathroom. Check out 12 which was good. Reasonable price. Didn't eat there as Clifton village close by and lots of lovely cafes and restaurants.

The Avon Gorge Hotel is right by the Clifton Suspension bridge. We had view of the gorge from our room and it was worth paying the extra money. The room was clean and comfortable with a hairdryer, ironing board etc and tea/coffee making facilities. The fire alarm went off at 3am and the two members of staff who were working... More

This hotel has amazing views and location. My double room was warm and comfy. Although there is a lift, the landings are winding with 2 lots of steps and 2 pass doors to reach my room. Not easy for an older person! The corridors creak so late night returnees make it noisy on a Saturday night The staff seem very... More
