'With a view like that, why bother' seems to be the motto of the hotel. The view is magnificent and I'm sure it's jolly marvellous to enjoy the terrace in the summer. Unfortunately the rest of the hotel doesn't live up to it. The largest frustration of the weekend was the party below our bedroom that went on beyond midnight....

Fabulous relaxing stay over Christmas. Friendly and helpful staff, lovely room with balcony giving stupendous views of the bridge and surrounding areas of Bristol. Meals were excellent especially the boxing Day lunch in the Bridge cafe which was great value.

Arrived 10.30 am, confusion over booking so room unavailable before leaving for a wedding. Staff unhelpful. Returned at 01.30 still not able to show us which room we were in until after 2am. Gorge view was one brick wall and a glimpse of the bridge if you stood on a chair. Would not recommend

Dear Shelley C, We are disappointed to hear you did not have a positive experience whilst staying with us. The Hotel offers guests a check-out time of 12pm and check-in anytime from 2pm onwards. We will always try our best to allow guests to access their rooms if they are available before the stated 2pm check-in. Unfortunately on weekends this...

We had a good time and the food was very good but at £45 a head, and £9.50 a glass of wine it should be. The disco was stuck in an 80s time warp, it was s shame there wasn't a bit more variety with up to date hits. The casino was fun if you could edge your way into...

A friendly and relaxed atmosphere, and very quiet. A lovely room, very well equipped and great that they made the dog so welcome, and great walks just a step away. The resturant was good with very friendly service.

Perched on top of Sion hill in Clifton, this hotel was a great find. Reception staff were warm, friendly and efficient. Rooms were basic, no frills but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good and I imagine, if staying in summer and sat on the patio overlooking the Clifton Suspension Bridge, would have been pretty spectacular. Within walking distance of the...
