4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A little bit in need of an update, make over, but in a great position, Clifton village a great place for a weekend away. Friendly staff , good breakfast, the highlight is the terrace overlooking the gorge and a fantastic view of Brunel,s bridge.

My partner and I met at the bar at the Avon Gorge 2 years ago, so we decided to go back for our 2 year anniversary. The receptionist (lovely Canadian woman, didn't get her name) was fantastic, as soon as she found out it was our anniversary she was able to upgrade us to a Queen Suite room at no... More

Great location, the hotel is historic and hasn't been refurbished for a while meaning that it kept its old but yet attractive English flavour. We had a problem with the booking and must say not a huge deal was done to help. We managed to get a standard room in the end and got a complimentary bottle of wine as... More

Having grown up near Clifton I always wondered what it would be like to stay at the Avon Gorge Hotel. The answer is mixed. We payed for a room on the Gorge side with a Balcony hoping for a view of the iconic Brunel suspension bridge. Well if you stood on tip toes in one spot you could just see... More

The view of the bridge is obviously amazing but it's not worth the expense of going to the Avon Gorge! It's massively overpriced for below average food, drinks and service! The place has become awfully run down, stepping through massive puddles on the terrace meaning most tables were out of use! 2 coffees that came to just under £8 were... More

The bar offered outside dining with z fantastic view over towards the Clifton Suspension Bridge. The food is predictable, more than adequate but expensive - and were it not for the view, overly expensive. None the less, a welcome rest on a walking tour of Clifton

We stayed here for one night while celebrating a family wedding nearby. Unfortunately, for £160 a night I would have expected better. If your first impression of the hotel is the car park at the back, don't panic! It gets better. Is a very steep, very narrow and extremely small car park. We ended up parking right at the bottom...

We booked a room with a balcony & despite being a three star hotel this was far from a cheap option; however the price raised our expectations, and the hotel really could not meet them: the room itsef was smallish and stuffy, there was a warning against using the balcony (despite this being a sales feature), and the balcony itself...

The view from my room was of the Gorge and Clifton suspension bridge. This made the stay very nice. Although the room was spacious, well equipped and the bed comfortable, it and the bathroom were a little old and tired! Easy walking to many nice restaurants and a park.
