Beautiful views from the hotel terrace though unless you are eating there is no benefit being a resident as the adjacent White Lion bar is open to anyone. We returned to the hotel just before 10.00 on a summer Sunday night to have a drink on the terrace after dinner and were amazed to be told it was all shut. We could have a drink from the hotel bar but had to sit inside. It was a real shame as was still light and the view was the main reason we had chosen the hotel. Rooms were very nice though very dark and beds/towels/linens were luxurious. Cooked breakfast was good but was surprised to find they had run out of orange juice quarter of an hour before breakfast service had finished. Room service also came to clean my sons room twice before we were even up let alone checked out so all in all there are quite a few areas where improvements could be made.

Newly refurbished with beautiful bathroom and nice products. Only issue is room very small. Bed superb. Food excellent great breakfast with lovely view. Lunch also great. I'd give 5 if room was bigger as its not cheap. Service also good.

We had a night here to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we stayed in a balcony room over looking the Avon gorge and Clifton Suspension Bridge. Admittedly the beautiful weather helped but the room was just lovely with a ridiculously comfortable bed. Being able to sit on the balcony, watching the sunset with a glass of wine was a perfect end to a perfect night. Staff were really friendly and helpful with a really good breakfast the next day, again overlooking the Avon gorge from the glass walled restaurant. Couldn’t fault it.

Good place to stay if you need a place in Clifton. Staff were super helpful. Barmaid was very cheery and helpful. Lady at reception super helpful when I found my car was blocked in by another car in the car park. She spent twenty minutes tracking down the culprit who also seemed to be a staff member. Breakfast was excellent. The bed was very comfortable and the room clean. A curtain in the bathroom might be an idea as although the glass is frosted the room I had overlooks the terrace which was full of people- with the light on this must have been a sight. The minibar isn’t cheap but then if that’s a problem take your own drinks and snacks. Excellent coffee maker in the room.

I stayed in hotel only one night. But was so great! Room not to big but comfortable and clean. Amazing bathroom and comfortable bed! At night was so quiet and peaceful I couldn’t believe (I had room from street). I didn’t ate in bistro but I was able to try breakfast! Continental table very good with loads of choices (banana bread!!! So delicious) and cook breakfast so good and so fresh! I really enjoy my Gin and Tonic served by very friendly girl behind a bar unfortunately I don’t know her name. All staff very friendly. And view so amazing. Beautiful hotel. Definitely will be back soon!
