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.

Owner Response
AnthonyG3627, General Manager at Best Western Bristol North The Gables Hotel, responded to this review
Dear WiganVicky, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us however I am sorry that your stay fell below your expectations. I am somewhat surprised to read your comments about the bed and of course would have mentioned this to one of my team then I am certain they would have acted swiftly to rectify any issue that you may have had. We do have interconnecting rooms and we do rely on guests having curtesy for each other with regards to noise however again we do have staff on hand 24 hours per day to assist in those types of situations. I do value all customer feedback and we certainly welcome it during our guests stay as this really does give us the opportunity to put right and wrongs that they might be experiencing during their stay. I would invite you to contact me directly at the hotel so that I can better understand your frustrations surrounding your stay. I am sorry that we were not able to live up to your expectations on this occasion. Regards Anthony Greenidge General Manager
