    Loved the hotel and its gorgeous views. We had a corner room which was large with windows that opened on two sides. It had a sofa so we could access our luggage since we were travelling in the uk for 14 days. We arrived by train and used taxis to and from the hotel. We went into town the first nite by walking and took the taxi back. A bit far to walk. The breakfast buffet was included with our room price and it was fantastic. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. We loved the huge deck and enjoyed drinking a pint and socializing with the locals. The only problem is the restaurants near the hoteI close early. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

    Superb

    We were very impressed with the friendly, efficient service we received throughout. Although obviously an old hotel, it functioned very well, including a very speedy lift! The food, generally, was pleasing.The location was excellent, not only because of the welcoming terrace, with wonderful viewsof the amazing Clifton Suspension Bridge and the surrounding area, but also as a good base for the Downs and accessing other interesting locations. We would definitely return here if we came back to Bristol.

    These are only niggling points, but since you asked..No handtowels were provided in our bathroom, before asking for them. We find it is desirable to have flannels provide, too, as an option. Although the cooked breakfasts were very good, the provision of fruit was a disappointment. Other than that, everything was fine.

    A most comfortable stay in an excellent location. Friendly staff and adequate ammenities. Only criticism was the service at breakfast - badly managed eg tables left uncleared, food replacement in self service slow, tea and toast portions inadequate.

    Location, comfortv and cleanliness.

    Very good

    Hotel was in a perfect situation for us as we were visiting family in Clifton Bristol.The views across the Avon Gorge were also splendid especially at night.

    We weren't impressed with the buffet breakfast as most items were warm rather than hot.It also amazed us that de-caff. coffee was not readily available in a hotel of this standing at breakfast.The staff did overcome this problem by using sachets normally found in the room.Parking was difficult unless you were lucky enough to find a space in the road outside the hotel.

    Pleasant staff, comfortable room. Great location for visiting city and easy access to some good walking. Memorable views.

    Breakfast pretty good, but it would be even better with choice of skimmed milk/ decaf tea/coffee etc.

    My wife and I enjoyed the great views of Avon Gorge and Clifton Suspension Bridge from our bedroom and the hotel terrace.

    The modified pull down bed was slightly uncomfortable and was not what i would have expected for the price we paid.
