Stayed two days with my wife. Room was excellent. Good size, very comfortable 6' bed, excellent bathroom. Reception staff were polite and efficient. Did not have dinner but the breakfast was very good and plentiful. The only problem we faced was the parking facilities which were along a poorly maintained private road at the rear of the premises. Whilst this... More

We stayed here for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely views, very friendly staff and the food in the White Lion bar was great, couldn't fault it. The rooms are small but very nicely furnished and the bathroom is a good size. The only quibble was that the room was very hot throughout the night which made it... More

The Brunel room has an excellent view of the clifton suspension bridge and was a good size for our group of 14. Very good service and food all very nice. Able to use the side of the terrace for residents' use for photos which was nice. We chose the £27 private dining menu - quite expensive for what it was,... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Avon Gorge last week. Great views of the Gorge and Bridge from our room, the restaurant and terrace. The room although somewhat small was very clean and well serviced but lacked an information folder. When we tried to book a table for dinner on the first night, without the benefit of an information folder, Reception... More

I was really surprised this Hotel was a 3 Star. The Room was large and was decorated and finished to a really high standard. My partner and I stayed over the Easter Bank Holiday. There is a little walk under the Avon bridge that is really nice. At night the views of the Avon Bridge are stunning. The Clifton area... More

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night on our way to Newquay. The room was good, but there was no book in explaining hotel services or telephone numbers. There was only enough tea, milk and sugar for 1 cup each. We tried to book a table in restaurant for 7.30 but we're told it was fully booked. They offered... More

Attended a weekend wedding here and thought the hotel was lovely. There is parking down a steep narrow lane, but if you can reverse well it shouldn't be a problem - we have a large estate car and it really wasn't that hard. Reception staff were very helpful and our room was gorgeous. Large, nicely furnished with a beautiful balcony... More

A Victorian hotel with a backdrop of the Clifton Suspension Bridge. In its day I would imagine it to be lovely, less so now. The bathroom had two steps to the toilet on one side and the washbasin was opposite, so you had to step up and down! Not ideal if you are elderly. Parking was a nightmare - down... More

We stayed in Room 128 - superior room with balcony for our wedding anniversary. It was very tastefully decorated and clean but the best thing was definitely the view from the balcony. The sun comes round after lunch and got quite hot. Could have done with some sun loungers! The views were truly stunning and I took most of my... More

Fabulous location and views. Good meeting place outside. Poor reception area, grubby and old. Rooms clean but dated. Good breakfast area and food. You pay for the location..rooms very overpriced - far better available at this price
