The room that I stayed in with my wife was very good. It was clean and the facilities were excellent It was also quite large and very comfortable. The cost of...

I took my mum for afternoon tea previously here which was excellent but on this occasion we had lunch here.The fish dish was lovely with a nice accompanying sauce. My food was also tasty and well presented. Efficient, friendly staff and beautiful view of the Clifton suspension bridge made it a day to remember.

Well what a disappointment, this hotel needs a total refurb, the staff need some kind of leadership. Stayed the weekend with family, overall we paid in excess of a grand, but not for a grand hotel, of which it once was. Saturday eve dinner for 22 of us, wasn't the best, some food had to go back overcooked to be...

This hotel made a change from the usual modern , beside the motorway hotel i usually stay in, (however having said that was only 5-10 minutes from the M5). Grand old building, which i found quite quirky , had to travel up and down several small sets of stairs down the narrow passsageways to the room on the third floor,...

Parking on a steep hill next to side hotel, limited spaces. Do provide other on street parking at reception as required. I would say great to visit, enjoy views, dining but...

This hotel has the opportunity to be the best in Bristol but at the the moment I'm afraid it really does fall short. Many of the staff seem depressed and management should gather everyone together for some retraining, motivation and encouragement. We had booked a garden room however and we were sent down (through many many corridors) to what I...

Lovely setting with stunning views of Clifton Suspension Bridge, set in beautiful Clifton. Service was good, rooms comfortable & decorated to a good standard. Parking was fine, but can imagine it can get tight at very busy times.

My partner and I have been to this restaurant on a couple of occasions and we have enjoyed our food. On this occasion we were disappointed on many levels: When we arrived, it took some time for a member of staff to acknowledge us and take us to the table we had reserved. It was so cold, that we couldn't...
