However you had to negotiate... More

This hotel has the best view in Bristol but it's situation and age are also part of its drawbacks. Parking is available but limited and if you want to leave early better move your car before the deliveries arrive. Unsurprisingly the rooms are accesses by long corridors and lot of steps, some of which are very narrow treads. The worst... More

I had booked a room at the Avon Gorge via a last minute website purely because it was within my budget and appeared relatively close to Bristol City Center. However I'm so glad I made my booking with this hotel. The staff were friendly, yet professional, the hotel itself was clean, comfortable and well decorated and it was situated in... More

I stayed at the Avon Gorge for one night for a business summer party. The room i had was lovely and clean but the best part was the large balcony attached to it. The view of the valley and the bridge was absolutely amazing. Perfect for watching the sun go down. The staff were friendly and helpful and i would... More

Staff are friendly and helpful. The attached bar is a little disappointing there's, not much to it really. However there is a terrace to enjoy the views... More

First time at the Avon gorge hotel, nothing too spectacular. Reception service was good if not a little slow, hotel was clean tidy room was a little dated and needed decorating. Didn't have dinner although did return later in the evening for a drink but the bar had a very strong cooked fish smell which was very offputting so decided... More

We booked a suite with its own private garden, we went to the reception to make sure that the price we were given was correct as it was a large space for what it cost. The staff were brilliant and the terrace for eating and relaxing was fantastic looking over the avon gorge and the clifton bridge. Breakfast was very... More
