Bristol Avon Gorge by Hotel du Vin review: A contemporary hotel in a Georgian setting
On a recent trip to Bristol, I stayed at the Bristol Avon Gorge by Hotel du Vin, not to be confused by the chain’s other location in the city centre, with my partner. While the other location puts you in the heart of the city, Avon Gorge positions you in Clifton Village, the city’s most coveted neighbourhood.
Clifton Village is characterised by a vibrant atmosphere, eclectic mix of independent boutiques, and stunning Georgian architecture. It sets a remarkable backdrop for our hotel which is perched on the edge of the Avon Gorge and offers breathtaking views of Bristol’s most iconic landmark, Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s suspension bridge spanning the Avon River.
