Avon Gorge by Hotel du Vin

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

Loftily positioned on the edge of Avon Gorge, just across from the sweep of Clifton Suspension Bridge, the Hotel du Vin feels like you’re on the wild edge of the city while still having all of Bristol at your fingertips.

While this is a big hotel with 78 rooms, there’s still a boutique, friendly feel to Du Vin, and each room feels carefully curated – expect jewel colours, velvety fabrics, and power showers, with some super-luxe suits if you’re looking to blow the budget.

There’s no need to venture far for a sundowner – the sun-drenched terrace of the White Lion bar is a wonderful place to toast Bristol’s iconic bridge with a glass of vin.




Surrounding area

Georgian townhouses, smart delis and independent restaurants all rub shoulders in small but perfectly formed Clifton Village, a very walkable neighbourhood that winds its way across to the gaping chasm of Avon Gorge.

Clifton is one of the safest, cleanest and most relaxed of Bristol’s neighbourhoods – ideal for weekend strolling or a spot of brunch if you want to escape the crowds but still do a spot of well-heeled people watching.

Cross towering Clifton Suspension Bridge as you make your way for a walk around the rolling green acres and woodlands of Ashton Court Estate, surely the city’s finest park, or pop to nearby Clifton Observatory for a tour.
