I stayed here on a B&B basis for one night, whilst attending a business meeting at another location.
On arrival, we were lucky to be able to park on the steep road to the rear of the hotel, but I can see that parking might be a problem sometimes. The hotel is set in a spectacular location, in Clifton village just below the Clifton Suspension Bridge, which can be viewed from the restaurant and hotel bars.
We dined out at one of the good selection of restaurants which are very close by, though, at the time of my stay, we were offered discount on dining at the hotel, where the menu looked interesting. I think I would have tried dining there if I had been staying for more than one night.
My room was clean and comfortable, though the decor and fully functional bathroom were a little dated.
Breakfast was buffet style, with a good selection of continental and cooked options, and was enjoyed with the magnificent view of the bridge!
The staff I encountered were predominantly young and very enthusiastic and helpful, especially those on reception.
I was sad that I could only stay for one night, as I would have liked to have explored the area more - the zoo and downs are very close - and would certainly consider staying here for fun as a 'short-break' .
