“Birthday Meal on the Terrace”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Lovely location, nice meal/snack. The terrace was looking a bit tired and very wet in places. It has a beautiful view. it seemed to be a bit short staffed and the those that were there must have been new as they didn't seem to know the layout of the tables which were numbered - there was a lot of wandering around looking for people. There was a couple of staff who knew what was where and they were very helpful guiding the others around. Piccy point staff were coming out with food orders and then going back empty handed walking past tables that had dirty plates and glasses on, this meant that people coming in were having to push them aside and it's not nice having to sit down next to other people's leftovers. Ordered at the bar and the food was ok nice scampi and really nice chips and a very large pizza. The area looked very dirty in places with an open door to an area which looked like a storage area/cleaning room with dustpan and brush outside which hadn't been emptied. Don't like the cheap looking burger outdoor food points which were closed made the area looked cheap and tacky but I expect a necessity when the hotel is busy. We have been to the hotel before and stayed and the rooms were lovely, the staff helpful and friendly and the breakfast was lovely.

The location of the Avon Gorge Hotel is very special especially on a warm summer evening.

This is the first time I have stayed at the Hotel and it won't be the last.

The bedrooms are very comfortable and very clean. A nice modern finish without spoiling the age of the building.

The staff are very pleasant and helpful and nothing is too much trouble especially when I asked for poached eggs for breakfast in the morning as they were not included in the buffet.

I would highly recommend this hotel. I stayed in the city centre last week in a Travelodge and the cost of the Avon Gorge came in at around the same price.

Do take your camera, the views are very special.

A perfect location with views of the infamous Clifton Bridge, Avon Gorge and Somerset Hills. A huge terrace which caters for over 200 peeps. Comfortable rooms, impeccable service and great cuisine all reasonably priced. Definitely deserves a 4 * rating!

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of Clifton Bridge

Clean and tidy, staff are friendly. Great views for the gorge. You can sit outside for Breakfast and evening meal with a great view. Have a good selection of wine but a small selection of beer. The rooms are very clean and a good size, just no air con ( shame)

great hotel, big rooms, king size beds, views over the Avon and Clifton Bridge are spectacular and the terraces are a bonus in fine weather. Breakfast is good, available till 10 but serve yourself ends at 9.30.

Room Tip: get a room looking over the river

Hotel located below the suspension bridge, fantastic view out on the large patio. Room clean, but could have been bigger. A lot of corridors and steps which is not good if you have luggage. Would stay again but would ask for a room closer to lift and larger one.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near lift
