Ok having decided I was going to have a party (rather than go away) I had to decide on the venue. I looked at 3 chain hotels in Bristol and the Alveston house hotel. What made me pick this hotel? Easy. Staff, actual hotel, bedrooms, widest choice of buffet (and the cheapest) and the fact that I would not share my special birthday with any one else ie only one function room - carriages restaurant. Over the weeks leading up to my party, I visited the hotel 3 times and emailed /rang several times and I never felt like I was being any trouble! We turned up on the day, mid afternoon, and set to work decorating the tables with candles (in large glass hurricane lamps) and sprinkles. Ballons provided by partyfromabox- recommended by hotel - absolutely delighted by them. When everything was in place, the room looked absolutely wonderful. Buffet was fantastic - everyone kept saying how lovely it was. So much food and all very fresh. Cheese and biscuit platter amazing! Had DJ venue recommended and he was great (I emailed him before with playlist etc) very flexible/accommodating throughout the night. Staff also great - all of them. If I have to make a tiny criticism I would say rooms on the pricey side. We paid £145 for deluxe with breakfast BUT worth it. Cost for normal double with breakfast £120 and this put some guests off staying. Plenty of free parking though. Breakfast served early - before 9.30. Fully appreciate they have to get room ready for next function or Sunday lunches. All in all I had a fantastic night and would not hesitate to recommend them or use them again. Thanks to everyone at the Alveston house hotel for making my party so special.
