3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for 2 nights in early January. Overall, it's hard to specify anything that's fundamentally wrong with the hotel but, overall, I was left feeling slightly underwhelmed (especially as it isn't all that cheap). We booked a superior gorge view room, which was actually very small and only had a view of the Gorge provided that you stepped... More

Well appointed rooms, views as advertised, awesome breakfast where kids eat free. Just a stones throw from the famous bridge and a short stroll from frequent busses to town. The Bristol Museum and Art gallery is a minor walk. Parking may be an issue. Though we parked outside the front door.

If you read other comments you will see that the main concern is the parking. We were lucky and found a nice flat spot to park the car for the weekend, some spaces are very steep and tight, but free, which is a huge consideration. I can imagine that in peak season you could well have to search quite hard... More

Stayed here on a business trip and paid extra for a view of the Clifton suspension bridge - was a bit disappointed when discovering that the view was almost completely obscured by a tree! Room was comfortable, clean and warm. parking at the hotel is very poor down a steep narrow private roadway, although I guess one should be grateful... More

Parking was easy we managed to find a spot right in front of the hotel, and there was parking to the rear also. Automatic doors to the lobby so easy if you're carrying cases/bags, the receptionists were all very friendly, we checked in and was offered help with our bags but as there was a lift we declined.

I stayed on the night of my wedding at the Avon gorge in the Princess Suite, which is the best room they have available. It was a great room, a little small for a suite but still top class room. The bed was huge and very comfortable and bath room was decorated really well. The view from the room is... More

Nice toiletries, large soft towels, huge bed with plenty of soft pillows. Ironing board and hair dryer. No robes, which was probably the... More
