The Avon Gorge Hotel was a lovley place for a wedding reception and vastly helped by the beautiful weather allowing us to use the terrace over looking the gorge.
I stayed in room 135 which is huge and welcoming. The bed was comfortable and the shower powerful. Yes the decor and the TV were a little dated but apparently there is a massive renovation going on at the moment so this should change soon enough. The only down sides were the bathroom didn't have any natural light and that the room got very hot at night. I did mention this at check-out and the receptionist promised to look into it.
Bar service during the wedding was slow but then again there was only 1 person serving whilst another polished glasses....and I'm not sure that either of them were prepared for a guest list that was mainly rugby players.
Finally, the breakfast was lovely. The food was cooked well and my friends assured me that the chocolate muffins were to die for.
Overall, a very nice stay in a tired but comfortable hotel.
