After booking a weekend at Avon Gorge, the nearest hotel to our son's flat, I was concerned to read some unflattering reviews - the wrong way round, I know! We arrived on Friday afternoon worried about what we had done. Our worries were unwarranted, we did not find a tired hotel with unhelpful staff. The receptionist could not have been more pleasant or helpful. We had one of the Gorge view rooms which has obviously been recently refurbished to a good standard. The large old fashioned tv mentioned in some reviews was not there; instead there was a modern slim tv on the wall of a good sized room. The wifi is free and the broadband is fast. It does annoy me that some hotels still regard wifi as an opportunity to make money out of guests. Car parking is also free, and in Clifton parking is at a premium, so a charge would not be a surprise.
We only had breakfasts in the hotel, where again the staff were very helpful and the food quality was very acceptable - not gourmet, but who wants gourmet for breakfast? There was no fuss made about our son joining us for the meals.
I thought I had left my iPod at the hotel, and the efforts the staff and management went to to try to retrieve it were exemplary.
We would definitely return when we could hopefully enjoy the terrace which has a spectacular view of the Gorge and the Suspension Bridge
