                    The Terrace with the view of the Clifton Suspension Bridge was excellent. The room was spacious and clean

                    The views from Ethel hotel and the surrounding village were stunning. We had a lovely quiet room away from the lift and reception. The room overlooked the terrace but as this closed by midnight the night was very quiet.

                    We thought that the hotel had ample parking but parking had to be found in side streets. The hotel was exceptionally hot during the afternoons and evening as the heating was on despite hot weather outside. Turning on the shower required some skill!

                    Excellent location, comfy rooms.

                    The corridors are very narrow and as my room was right at the end of the hotel and down several flights of stairs, I struggled with my luggage.

                    The Avon Gorge is close to the Clifton Suspension Bridge and with views over the woodland slopes of the Avon Gorge we enjoyed the location immensely. The views from the Bar and breakfast cafe were outstanding and we would go back. We visited the Bristol view the next morning and enjoyed meals in two local restaurants in Clifton Village over the course of our stay. There were other parents celebrating the graduation of their children from Bristol University. Bedrooms free from too much technology

                    Low energy light bulbs everywhere

                    Good value hotel in a good location for Clifton. Actually has free parking with real spaces! Breakfast is good. Bath/shower work well. Clean.

                    Rooms are a little old fashioned and tired compared to more modern hotels like Radisson. Not too bad though.

                    The bed was extremely comfortable. The staff were excellent

                    The hotel is is need of a serious update - the bedroom decor/design was very dated. There were cracked tiles in the bathroom and the facilities, such as the hairdryer, looked as though they had been there many decades. A shame!

                    Perfect location for touring the area and visiting the zoo. Beautiful setting by the suspension bridge. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms and value for money.

                    Excellent service by staff and quality food

                    Room was next to lift, making it a little noisy

                    Though we were located on the 1st floor facing the street, the room was so quiet and larger than expected. Breakfast wasnt included, but the price was good value anyway. The view from the terrace of the suspension bridge is wonderful, and Clifton village has plenty of restaurants. Its around a 20 minute hilly walk into Bristol, but we found this no problem. Also parked with no trouble around the back with a permit from reception. Maps of Bristol also available from reception, just ask.

                    None, wish we had stayed another night
