We had a very enjoyable stay at the Clifton. There were a couple of issues with the room we were allocated but the staff sorted it out within a few minutes. All of the staff on reception were welcoming, friendly and helpful during our stay. The hotel is well-situated for getting into town and is located in a quiet and attractive part of the city.

Christchurch, United Kingdom1 contribution
Beautiful situated hotel, with very good connection to all of famous 'must see' places in Bristol. Very friendly and helpful crew. My room was very clean, and warm. Even due to chilly weather, and old-fashioned Victorian windows (listed building). Radiator was off, no need to be on. Huge bed with firm mattress. As I like. Water under shower even to hot. I reported possible broken mixer. Good quality of food available in the hotel's restaurant. Overall 7 out of 5* Definitely will stay there during my next visit in Bristol
