Testimonials – What people say about us…

David Hyman – 70th Birthday – February 2017

Just to say many thanks for the excellent time we all had at Alveston House, for my Wife’s 70th Birthday last Saturday Evening.
Everything was so well organised and you were all so responsive to deal with, just like you were when you also hosted my Daughter’s engagement party a number of years ago. Many thanks again.

Stayed here for just the one evening. We were a party of 6, and had tea and scones (which were so light – wonderful!) when we arrived, which was a nice touch. In the evening had a lovely meal, we had a couple of special requests for food, and they were more than happy to oblige, as we had sorted it out beforehand, and it all went very well. The staff who were very young were excellent, and very friendly, we really couldn’t fault a thing. The breakfast I think had the largest selection of choices I have seen for a long time, and as I said everything went very well, give yourselves a pat on the back all of you – Well done and thank you.

Best afternoon tea we have had so far, even beat Harvey Nicks, lovely staff, first class scones and fresh sandwiches, lovely sofas by warm fire, what’s not to like, lovely afternoon spent with three other family members, who have been run off their feet organising Christmas.

We stayed here just one night as we were visiting friends locally. The staff were friendly and attentive, the room clean and welcoming and a late night key was readily supplied when we found the door would be locked at 11.30pm. Breakfast the following morning was excellent, the highlight for me was a choice of three fish dishes something I seldom see. We would recommend the hotel to anyone.

Trip Advisor – December 2016

The hotel is well situated on the A38 with Bristol, Bath and the Cotswolds within easy reach. We knew it had a good reputation so were keen to try it out. On arrival, there is plenty of parking and the building looked spotless and well-maintained. Once inside this care and attention to detail is continued throughout, and the décor is light and pleasing. The reception was very friendly and helpful, and throughout our three-night stay all the staff were pleasant, highly professional and eager to please. We were both impressed by the dedication of all the staff, they are obviously selected and trained by someone who really knows how to run a small hotel.

Booked his hotel as I was going into bath with my partner and the mother / father in law for the winter Christmas market. All of the bath hotels close by where filled so we looks further afield. This little gem we found online and it was fantastically priced and the staff were very friendly. Set in a great locations not very far away from bath city centre. Looked very nice on the outside and our room was a great size. Had everything we needed for our stay with reception open until late so we could check in after we were finished with a busy day of shopping and exploring the city….

Mr & Mrs Lobb – December 2016

This was the first time we have been to Christmas Lunch at Alveston House Hotel and hopefully we shall be able to repeat it again in the future. We were impressed by the ambience of the occasion, the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff which made the whole experience enjoyable. Our thanks once again.

Trip Advisor – December 2016

My daughter and I booked their autumn package which included dinner, bed & breakfast for two nights. Our room was modern, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The dinner menu had three choices for each course and changed completely on the second evening, breakfast offered good quality range of buffet and hot food to order. All of the food was very good and nothing was too much trouble for the friendly and helpful staff. The location of the hotel is very convenient for shopping in the centre of Bristol or Cribbs Causeway and it has plenty of free parking. I’m hoping to stay again in February with a friend.

Christine Wiltshire – December 2016

Just a brief note to say how much we all enjoyed our visit to the hotel yesterday. As usual everything came up to – or indeed – exceeded expectations! Some of my group were slightly apprehensive, when they saw how busy it was, whether the staff would be able to cope. (I had no such fears!) They were all very impressed with the professionalism of the whole team. We shall certainly be booking again for next year. My very best wishes to you all,

Andy Burgess – November 2016

Would you please pass on our thanks to the staff who looked after us so well on Saturday. Everyone enjoyed the lunch and those who had them (including myself) agreed the cream teas were superb. Our ‘book club’ discussions went well and all felt that the venue was excellent. Once again thanks to you and the staff and we look forward to coming again sometime.

Mr & Mrs Thompson – November 2016

We would like to thank you and all the staff at Alveston House Hotel for a wonderful evening. From the initial enquiry, through booking the venue and rooms, choosing the menu etc. to all that goes with putting on such an event, all was excellent. The staff on the night were most helpful, courteous and professional throughout. Everything went smoothly. The buffet was first class and our vegan guests also enjoyed their food very much indeed. We received very favourable comment on the room layout, the table arrangement and the dance floor and the DJ was praised very highly indeed – not always the case with guests with such an age variation. Finally, our overnight rooms were of excellent quality – very comfortable, clean and warm – and with a first class breakfast to ‘send us on our way’ to various points in the UK we could not have asked for more. Thank you for such an enjoyable evening.

Trip Advisor – November 2016

What a lovely hotel. Room was spotless. All staff pleasant and helpful. Room service chicken sandwich was lovely and breakfast equally as good. I had issues with wifi so straightaway they looked at my tablet and then re-booted system all sorted! In Bristol quite often and not far from M5 so good find for me.

We booked a room for our Anniversary Dinner on 28th Oct There was twelve of us , The help we had in arranging from Lisa was first class. The room looked beautiful.The meal was delicious. All the staff did everything possible to make it a special evening. We have since had such a great feedback from our friends. We can’t wait to go back again. Thank you to all the staff.

Trip Advisor- November 2016

Stayed here for a couple of days while doing a course for work. I have never stayed at a hotel where I’ve been made as welcome and been so impressed by the staff. Nothing is too much trouble, from giving advice on the area to booking taxis and generally just being helpful and friendly. They are a real credit to the hotel.
The service in the restaurant is also first class, and the food is fantastic. Lots of nice touches like free fresh bread, canapés etc while you wait for your meal.
The rooms are really nice too, nice and clean and fresh with complimentary toiletries, tea, coffee and biscuits.
I don’t have a bad word to say about the place and wouldn’t hesitate in staying again, either with work or as part of break with my wife.

Trip Advisor – November 2016

Spent an evening at the Alveston House Hotel for an anniversary meal; would normally go to a restaurant but had heard good things. We were not disappointed, very pleasant/helpful staff, a relaxing but gently buzzing atmosphere and excellent food at a sensible price.
Also took the opportunity when booking to check out the bedrooms for future visitors seeking accommodation; they looked really good and as is typical of a small private hotel each room was individually decorated/furnished.
Overall a rare treat and well worth a visit.

Trip Advisor – November 2016

As noted by many other guests, we found all the staff to be helpful and approachable and the accommodation was fine. Also as noted by other guests, a true strength is the food, both dinner and breakfast. We understand that the management is promoting its dog-friendly credentials and our two greyhounds would recommend it as such. A great alternative to over-priced inner-Bristol hotels that we reached with ease after visiting the city.n before too long.

Trip Advisor – November 2016

This was one of the best experiences I have ever had. This was a great hotel with a lovely atmosphere, very clean, extremely friendly staff. The reception staff couldn’t do anymore to help and we were escorted to the rooms, which was a nice touch. The rooms were exceptionally clean and well maintained. We had a meal that was served on time and was of a great standard. I would definitely go back to this hotel and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Trip Advisor – November 2016

I was on business in Bristol and was put up at the Alveston From start to finish we were welcomed and accommodated In the room the staff had put out a foggy bowl with a biscuit and even a spare poo bag! We are together in the conservatory and felt very welcomed Perfect and never experienced such genuine concern for Poppy the bichon frise Top marks

We held a surprise 80th birthday lunch here on Sunday 13th November. Our party included 30 people including children and babies. The whole experience was excellent, a great room that met all of our needs and the food was excellent. Every member of staff I came into contact with were both professional and focused on us having the best time, they couldn’t do more for us, whilst at the venue and before whilst organising the surprise. A family within our party did stay the night before and spoke highly of the rooms and breakfast. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alveston House Hotel and its staff should be proud of their service. Thank you

Trip Advisor – November 2016

My Wife and I decided to to take a very short break to get some time alone. We could not have picked a better hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms and the hotel were both clean and comfortable. The food was excellent as was the room service. We have certainly bookmarked this hotel for a return visit.

Lyn Sales – November 2016

We would like to thank you for once again making a visit to Alveston so enjoyable. All the staff could not have been more attentive and helpful, and indeed patient with us. The lunch was excellent and we hope to come again before too long.

Trip Advisor – October 2016

My wife and I stopped here for one night on the 4th October whilst on a business road trip. The staff were extremely friendly, the room large and well equipped, clean, tidy etc. as you would expect. The restaurant is the jewel in the crown. Carriages restaurant has won AA rosettes every year since 2009 and you can taste why … Once again the waiting staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. The food was exceptional and neither one of us could fault it. In fact, I would go so far as to say that I haven’t had a better starter for many years.

Trip Advisor – October 2016

The Alveston Hotel is possibly the warmest, kindest and perfect hotels I have visited. I visit the Alveston weekly for work and could never fault it. I have stayed in a variety of rooms, from standard to superior, all are so lovely, clean and comfortable. The Alveston staff are a huge asset and make you feel very welcome. Highly recommend this hotel for its professionalism and warmness.

Trip Advisor – October 2016

From the first phone call the service and help was consistently excel-lent no matter which member of the team I was speaking with.
A family dinner 30 Oct for 17 across three generations was everything we could have hoped for. The attention to detail before and during was first class, the service attentive but unobtrusive and the meal lovely.
We had the use of the Cottage suite which suited us perfectly and all very good value for money. Splendid and recommended

Trip Advisor – October 2016

This is a lovely hotel, the rooms are very nicely decorated, the facilities are excellent. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent, both at dinner and breakfast, served very professionally. Could not ask for more for an overnight stay. Will definitely use again in the future.

Trip Advisor – September 2016

The lovely hotel offers an upmarket experience with a very warm welcoming style of service. I was travelling with my dog who was also made to feel very welcome. The room was comfortable and immaculately clean. As I was tired after a long day I ordered from the room service menu which arrived promptly and was well cooked and tasty, enjoyed a restful nights sleep and went on my way refreshed the next day.

Trip Advisor – September 2016

Alveston House Hotel is an independent hotel but a little gem tucked away in Alveston near Bristol. The staff are professional but friendly and very helpful. The decor is beautiful and our bathroom superb with a massive, but comfortable bath and super shower in a good-sized cubicle. The evening meal was superb with delicious canapés offered while we enjoyed our pre-dinner drink. Breakfast was cooked to order and the presentation was the best I have ever seen.

Sarah & Paul – September 2016

We just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you to you all for our fabulous wedding we celebrated with you on Saturday 17th September. Thanks to all the staff our day ran very smoothly and we all thought the meal was first class. We will certainly recommend the Alveston House to all our family and friends for any future events. Once again many thanks for making our day so special.

Mary & Colin – July 2016

We would like to send a big thank you to you and all the staff for everything you did to give us a really special birthday party last Saturday. Everything was so well organised, the service was excellent and the food was just beautiful.

Please pass on our thanks, too, to the makers of the birthday cake. It was just so good, not only how it looked, which was superb but also how it tasted!

We feel we could not have chosen a better venue to mark Colin’s 80th birthday. Thank you!

Mr & Mrs Thompson – May 2016

Now I have got back home to Portugal I just wanted to thank you for making our Golden Wedding celebration on the 21st May go so well, we wanted a quiet small family affair and all the arrangements, thanks to your staff, went extremely well. Our stay at the hotel could not have been better and all our family who stayed were delighted with rooms,service etc.

So just a very big thank you for helping to make the weekend so good.

Deb Bradshaw – February 2016

Just a quick note to tell how much we enjoyed the Valentine’s dinner last Saturday evening. The food was fantastic, the staff were helpful and polite as always and the ambiance superb. The pianist playing in the background was just right, not too loud but just loud enough to maintain the atmosphere. All in all, a truly enjoyable evening.

Alex & Clare – May 2016

Great place to get married with fantastic food, amazing service and very personable touch. Thanks to Alveston House Hotel for helping to make my wedding day the best day of my life. All the team were superb with a special mention to Lisa and Gary.

Terry & Sally – May 2016

Just a note to thank you all so much for making our Golden Wedding lunch on 21st May such a happy occasion. From our initial phone call the staff were extremely friendly and efficient. The food and service was excellent and the room couldn’t have been better, especially for the children. Even though it rained they did get out into the garden. We all enjoyed our time together thanks to all the staff. We will certainly recommend you to all of our friends.

Thelma Gibbs – April 2016

I would like to thank all the staff on duty during the evening of Saturday 30th April, who helped to make my 70th birthday so enjoyable. The food was excellent and everyone went out of their way to accommodate our guests who arrived late. Thank you once again.

Lisa Watkiss – February 2016

Just wanted to feedback that both of our interviewers have commented on how lovely the venue for today’s interviews was and also how good the service.
People are far too quick to complain these days, and rarely take a minute to compliment, even when it is well deserved… So a big thank you to you and your team for making our day less stressful.”

Katrina Rosser – September 2015

We had an amazing wedding day at Alveston House Hotel. The staff were fantastic and the food was delicious. A huge thank you to all the staff who were on duty that day for making our day so special.

Ger Millard – August 2015

If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue then you must go and take a look at Alveston. My daughter got married here in August and we had the most amazing time Everything Alveston House did for us was 100%. From our very first meeting I knew that they wouldn’t disappoint us and thanks to Lisa (our amazing wedding Co – ordinator ) and the rest of the team at Alveston my daughter had her perfect day!

Ben Hopson – August 2015

Just woke up after a truly wonderful day. My wedding at the Alveston House Hotel was exactly what we dreamed it would be. Super thanks to Gary, Lisa and all the staff here who were smiling from start to finish.

Anne & David – May 2015

We would like to say thank you for making our daughter’s wedding day so very special. Both Helen and Stuart had a fantastic day. Family and friends at the wedding have said how lovely the staff were and the day felt relaxing and the food fantastic. Once again a big thank you to you all.

Jackie & Mark – May 2015

Many thanks for helping to make our wedding day so special. We had a lovely day with excellent food and the service second to none. Thanks again.

Mr & Mrs Hamilton – April 2015

We chose The Alveston House Hotel for our Wedding in April and had a fantastic day. We looked at a number of venues but these seemed impersonal and had set packages. We knew, from having our 50th &60th celebrations here, that The A H H would listen to what we wanted and would take a genuine interest in making sure that the day would be just what we had envisaged. They tailor made a package to suit our requirements and ensured that we were fully happy with everything so that we had a very personal experience. I stayed the night before and ate in The Carriages Restaurant. There was a wide selection of dishes and the food was excellent. All of the staff are friendly, helpful and efficient and made our special day absolutely perfect. To anyone planning a special occasion or meal, we would fully recommend this hotel.

Trip Advisor – Friends Wedding – April 2015

Our friends held their wedding here, a beautiful building, staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was fantastic, an excellent size and well appointed. The wedding breakfast was a very tasty meal which we very much enjoyed.

Trip Advisor – August 2014

Our daughter got married at this hotel, lovely marriage service with a nice garden to take the photos. After the service we had a great reception with excellent food, the management and staff were marvellous nothing was to much trouble and their attention to detail was great. The evening party was good with an excellent buffet. We stayed overnight and the accommodation was good, a lovely large and comfortable bed and a good sized room. In the morning we had an excellent breakfast.

Sarah P – August 2014

Myself and my husband picked the Alveston House Hotel for our wedding 24/08/2014, High class services, excellent service, facilities and cleanliness excellent. The food was outstanding. The service from Lisa who helped plan our day was also outstanding & everything went as planned. All the staff were friendly and helpful . Will be a place myself and my husband will spend a lot of time visiting.

Trip Advisor – August 2014

Everything about this hotel is perfect. We had the pleasure of getting married here 3 years ago and came back for our anniversary! This hotel is faultless! Cannot recommend it enough. The food is out of this world and the staff are second to none, so friendly and helpful. Looking forward to coming back.

Trip Advisor – July 2014

We celebrated our Vegas wedding back in the UK with family and friends at The Alveston House Hotel on 19th July. The whole celebration from start to finish was perfect. The venue, the food, the customer service – it was just how I imagined it would be and that was due to the staff at the hotel being so attentive to detail and making sure that we had the day that we wanted. Several guests have told me that it was the best ‘wedding’ they had been to. Outstanding customer service!

Trip Advisor – June 2014

We had our wedding day here on the 28th June, and what a wonderful day we and all our guests had. The hotel and all the staff were very attentative to our needs from the original meeting right up to the wedding day. The ceremony room is light and airy, the gardens are beautiful for your photos, the reception room was spacious with natural light, the food was first rate but above all else all the staff led by Lisa were excellent, they made sure everything was perfect from the time we arrived, and continued to look after us and our guests needs throughout the day, nothing was a problem to them.
The hotel contributed greatly to making our start to married life a very special one, we are so glad we used this hotel, where customer service is at its best, we would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a wedding or any special occasion.

Gill & Pete – May 2014

The stay at the Alveston House Hotel was fabulous, the venue – brilliant. The exceptional staff, who were very attentive and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Well Done to Lisa and her colleagues. The garden was beautiful and we had exceptional weather, the whole weekend was superb. Thank you so much.

Facebook Review – March 2014

We got married here in June last year after 20 years together. Our day was simply magical!! Wouldn’t have changed a thing. Staff were wonderful, patient and thoughtful, food was superb and the atmosphere was perfect. Our day flew by but will never be forgotten.

Sara & Trish – November 2013

Our Wedding Day was a unique and beautiful occasion thanks to every member of the team at Alveston House Hotel. From the moment we chose the venue and stepped through the doors of the hotel, we were made to feel very welcome and special and the relaxed and friendly atmosphere was exactly what we wanted for our celebration. The attention to detail by every single member of the staff was amazing and the seamless effort with which they transformed the wedding breakfast into the evening party around us all was truly professional.

Because we are not local to the area and we knew our guests were travelling quite a distance to share in our celebration we chose the exclusive package. It was so important to us that our friends and family should also feel relaxed during their stay and being the only guests in the hotel meant it felt a more intimate occasion. We have had numerous comments from our friends that this was the best wedding they had attended and the atmosphere of the hotel and the quality of the food and service was outstanding.

Julie and all her team were simply outstanding and organised everything we wanted including hair dressers on the day. The personal touches from the hotel, coupled with the sun shining for us and the champagne and canapes in the garden means our wedding day will be something we treasure for many years to come. We cannot thank the team at Alveston House enough.

We shall certainly be returning to celebrate our anniversary.
