I have been staying at this hotel for 44 years.
It's not very often 'Jewels' stay the same, I can report that the hotel may have changed its name since I first stayed there. It was called the 'The Grand Spa' and it was very grand - it was the best hotel in Bristol by far.
It might not be the priciest hotel in Bristol, but for me it's the best, great food, wonderful friendly staff and located in the nicest part of the city.
Clifton is a wonderful area for pubs, restaurants and nice shops.
You could not have a better place for a base, on street parking is tight - but I haver never failed to get in the car park.
Gorge views are my favourite - the hotel is vey homely now, and the staff make you feel at home.
It's very worth staying - most of my trips are just 2 days, I would love a longer stay.
