Best Western Bristol North The Gables Hotel.

The Best Western The Gables Hotel is set in the delightful rural location of Falfield, offering a great place to stay near to both Bristol and the beautiful Cotswolds. Bristol is a mere 20-minute drive from the hotel, as is Cotswold Way and it's 100 miles of charmed woodlands and hillsides. You'll also be close to the historic towns of Thornbury, Wotton-under-Edge and Cheltenham, for breathtaking views and timeless architecture in every direction.

Gloucester Cathedral - and its Norman pillars and vaulted cloisters - are only 30-minutes away. This will be particularly pleasing to Harry Potter fans, as many wonderful wizarding scenes were filmed there. Thanks to its convenient location, this countryside hotel is a cosy base for walkers, hikers or anyone with an eye for a photo-op.

A modern and rather elegant interior can be found inside the Best Western The Gables Hotel. Each of the 46 cosy en-suite bedrooms are furnished to a high standard and come complete with all the facilities that you'd expect. A scrumptious brasserie, contemporary bar and attractive patio area can also be found, as we're all set to give you the warmest of welcomes whether you're here for a few hours on business or a few days on holiday. Excellent suites and banqueting facilities also make this hotel near Bristol an unbeatable spot for weddings, conferences and even product launches. We really can do it all.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review regarding your experience of our Michael Buble tribute night. I was very happy to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment as due his success we have invited him back later in the year. Regarding the food I am sorry you felt service and communication was not what you expected. I have spoken to my team and they have assured me that everyone attending was sent an email stating their menu choices, that being said I have fed back your comments around the food quality to my Chef. I do appreciate your feedback and have taken your comments on board for our future events, if you wish to speak to me further about this please do not hesitate to contact me on mpantling@thegablesbristol.co.uk Thank you once again and I do hope to see you at the hotel again soon
