The Clifton Hotel Bristol


The Clifton Hotel is a cosy and friendly three star hotel in Bristol’s elegant Clifton.  Its fantastic location means guests are within easy walking distance to both the University of Bristol and the charming Clifton Village with its cobbled streets and independent boutiques and restaurants. 

Guests are guaranteed a warm welcome at this small independent hotel with each room stocked with complimentary refreshments including a bowl of fresh fruit, loose leaf tea, biscuits, ground coffee and a cafetiere. 

Paid off-street parking is available in a secure location on a first-come, first-served basis.

Guests can relax in Racks Bar & Kitchen – one of Bristol’s favourite bars snuggled in the old wine cellars underneath the hotel. Full of historic charm and warmth, Racks is the perfect place to pop in for a drink or sit down to enjoy a meal – it also offers a fantastic breakfast. 
Pets are welcome for a small fee and we offer a guide to dog-friendly activities in the area.

The Clifton Hotel is an ideal choice for those looking for a convenient, comfortable and competitively-priced base to explore the city. For those on a working visit, free, fast Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and in the spacious lobby. Guests can also take advantage of exclusive discounted rates at nearby Square Works, recently awarded ‘Best Co-working Space in Bristol.’
