Our room had a splendid view of the Clifton Suspension Bridge. It was clean and tidy but the bed was much too soft for our tastes. Almost bouncy! If one of us turned over the other knew about it!! It's a shame some hotels insist on leaving lights blazing all night inside and out. The curtains were heavy and obscured... More

Location is great, plenty of restaurants, the view is incomparable. A 25 minute walk into Bristol City Center or a very affordable bus ride takes 5 minutes. The terrace is the place to visit if you can't grab a room there.

We stayed at the Avon Gorge to enjoy the views and to have good access to Clifton. The positives include the position, access to Clifton and a decent breakfast. The negatives include terrible parking, a very poorly ventilated room and a rock hard bed. An over-rated hotel.

Dear RichardandLindsay Thank you so much for your feedback, I am so pleased you enjoyed the views from the hotel. Unfortunately the new car park permit system enforced by the council, has caused a few issues, We are always looking for ways to improve our guests experience, and we hope to see you again.

Sitting atop of the Avon Gorge, this hotel has one of the best settings in the UK. With Clifton Village behind it, and the city centre only minutes away, The Avon Gorge Hotel is perfectly located for exploring the wonderful city of Bristol.

I don't think anybody should really call the Avon Gorge Hotel `average' but as it wasn't really `very good' and there is no `good' on the scale then I have chosen that.
