The room was compact but had everything I needed, including accessible power sockets and free WiFi. The breakfast was good and the staff friendly and helpful. It's in a superb position in a historic district of Bristol with views of the Clifton Suspension bridge from the restaurant.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting family in Bristol. The hotel is in a lovely area overlooking the Suspension Bridge. Our room was clean but basic. Hotel was undergoing renovation (much needed) with no apology to guests. Main shower was cold .. When brought to attention of reception a small reduction was offered which was fair enough. Staff...

Booked a superior double room at the hotel for a special 30th birthday weekend. There was no view from the room, you had to go out onto a balcony and look around the corner to see the bridge- avoid room 128 when booking. Saturday night 11pm (valentines evening) the door into the room next door had bolted shut with people... More

We paid a bit extra for a room with a view of the Gorge. Sadly, the large Victorian chimney partly obscured the view, but that is not the hotel's fault. Our room was lovely, as was the bathroom. Although I advised upon booking that I have a Vegetarian Breakfast, I forgot to remind them when we went to have breakfast,... More

We stayed for 2 nights and had a family party at this hotel. It looks like it has had a refurb very recently and fixtures and fittings are all fairly new. Our room was small but comfortable, the bed one of the best I have slept in. A good night's sleep in a quiet location. The bathroom was nicely fitted... More

We booked 2 double rooms recently for a family visit. On arrival we had a warm welcome from pleasant staff. We had arrived by taxi from Temple Meads Railway station, you should allow about £10 for the fare. The rooms were spacious, warm, with comfortable beds and bedding, and large bathrooms. The breakfast was as much as anyone could eat,... More

Stayed overnight late January with two friends, and from the moment we arrived I was impressed with the friendliness of all the staff ( yes even the workman there!) parked down the side of the hotel with our cherished car no problem great to have a parking space. Dinner was excellent the best pheasant I've had and the desserts overwhelming.... More
