On arrival the desk staff were courteous and told us that we could go into our room straight away as it had been made up (some 2 hrs before we were due to occupy). I was then given a piece of paper to put in my car window to prevent the car getting clamped – parking was behind the hotel.... More

Stayed here overnight for the 150th celebration fireworks display at the bridge which was wonderful and as residents we could view from the outdoors terrace. I've been to the hotel several times over the years for functions etc but never actually stayed, and I didn't have the highest expectations, however it was far better than I thought it might be....

Arrived the evening of the bridge celebration. Roads closed so google maps were imperative. Not the warmest of welcomes but an adequate room in a slightly shabby hotel. Good bed, towels bed bathroom. Miserable decor. Excellent and good quality breakfast. Perfect for an overnight stay.

Booked a double room for one night. When checked in and told where room was our expectations were high but when opened the door to find a very small room with a larger than expected bathroom we were rather disappointed especially for the price we had paid. We had ordered room service for two drinks and it was a £2.50... More

The trip was a for birthday - altogether we were 9 staying. We spent one night at the Avon Gorge Hotel in early December and found all the staff friendly, efficient and helpful. We had very large, double, 'gorge view' room on the third floor. We could see the gorge and the river snaking away but had to lean in... More

It is very well located, right next to Brunel's famous Suspension Bridge. It is clean, the staff are friendly, their housekeeping efficient. The terace where you can sit and enjoy the views over the bridge and the Gorge are lovely. It is in Clifton Village, with all the nice shops and bars, bistros, restaurants. The breakfast is good enough and... More

Nice hotel, staff friendly, food tasty,rooms comfortable although on the fourth floor hot water took awhile to come through and the flow was poor. Central location and the views of the Clifton suspension bridge was lovely.

Second stay at the Avon Gorge for me, always make or break, but thankfully it lived up to my impressions of the hotel from the first time. Check in smooth and friendly, rooms are beautifully decorated (although they can be a bit of a walk), room service quick, wifi good (and free), really enjoyed breakfast again, they have this down...

I stayed here for 2 nights on business and would happily stay here when next in Bristol. I was in a "double village view" room overlooking the street at the front of the hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a good size bathroom but I would have liked somewhere, other than the floor, to put my toiletries. I... More

Stayed here as it was closest to the business venue. Contemporary twin room decor, but still cosy. Clean bedroom and bathroom. Breakfast good on both mornings. Staff friendly and helpful. Clifton village just a short walk up the road, which is lovely even in the rain. The beautiful bridge can be seen from the hotel.... Unfortunately it was raining on... More
