This hotel is in a magnificent location close to the trendy Clifton with its up market cafes, bars and restaurants. Our room was on the third floor with awesome views of the gorge and bridge. The room was large, very clean and the decor was lovely. Breakfast was superb. I always judge this by the sausages which were proper meaty... More

This was an overnight stop on our way home from Devon. We arrived early but the room was not quite ready and we were informed by an abrupt receptionist that we had to pay on arrival (without having seen our room) although I am not sure this is correct procedure as usually you pay the bill on departure. The room... More

This hotel has a lovely terrace with wonderful views so my son and myself were looking forward to having afternoon tea here but this idea was ruined by the attitude of the staff when we politely asked for a table. They were unwelcoming and rude and a disgrace to the hotel, we will not be returning.

The staff and service were excellent. However very disappointed with our main meal which was the grilled summer vegetable salad - the quality was ok but it was only just about the size of a side dish- very overpriced for £10.50

Booked the room there for a family wedding. Check in was quick and the staff member was very friendly. Had heard that it was difficult to find parking nearby and the street that they have as a car park was very full but we luckily managed to find a spot quite quickly.

I stayed at the Avon Gorge Hotel on Saturday 29th August. Although my room had a balcony with a lovely view, it was above the kitchen and therefore I was unable to have my windows open at night due to the constant stream of smoking kitchen staff. Therefore the room was unbearably hot with constant noise from the corridor and... More

My husband and I stayed as part of a family group for a wedding nearby. The staff are friendly and willing, the view of the Gorge lovely and the area very interesting.
