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.

Dear Andy S, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am pleased that you found the hotel to be of a good standard. We offer home from home type meals in the bar but have a fantastic Al la carte menu in the restaurant which we are in the process of launching a new one. We hope that you choose to stay with us again should you be passing the area again. Regards Anthony Greenidge General Manager
