I have just had the great pleasure of staying in your hotel for my niece's wedding, Miranda to Russell, on 14th September 2013.
I was so impressed with the hotel - everything went like clockwork; the rooms, service, food, staff, cleanliness, decor are first class, and there is as well such a friendly and pleasant atmosphere.
I have stayed in 5 star hotels in many countries, but few have been as good as yours.
I know I am speaking for all the guests at the wedding - we all had a wonderful day and evening - the disco was great too!
I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks to all the members of your staff who made my mother's 85th birthday lunch yesterday such a special occasion. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived, and throughout the meal the service we received was exemplary . I would also like to compliment the chef on the food we ate which was of a very high standard.
We we had the privilege of attending Ceri & Matthews wedding on the 4th of August, it was a superb day could not fault it, thank you for making the day special for all involved, I am sure the bride & groom would agree. Magg's & Steve
I can't believe that I have left it nearly 2 months to write a review of the wonderful attention we received from everyone at Alveston House Hotel both during and in the long lead up (it was booked 18 months in advance!) to our wedding on 20th June. At every step we were treated as welcome friends, rather than clients and everyone went out of their way to provide the most impeccable service. So many of our guests commented on the service (and still are commenting!). Lisa, Carole, Julie and everyone else made the day run so smoothly, resulting in a magical day for us and took care of my friend and I the night before the wedding too. We were glad we could brighten the bar staff's day with a first dance to Metallica, which they seemed to enjoy! I really cannot praise highly enough or offer enough thanks for the most special day of our lives.
This is the first opportunity i've had to get in touch since my birthday tea party on June 23rd...It was a splendid occasion and I enjoyed myself so much. I've received so many telephone messages and cards of thanks from my guests and they all said how much they enjoyed the afternoon. The venue was perfect and the food delicious. The cake wa much admired and please send our thanks to the chefs. I know that my daughters Nicola and Suzanne were very pleased with their choice. Please can you extend our thanks to all who helped on the day. I'm afraid I was in a bit of a tiz and did not mention their names. Thank you for making my special day a memorable occasion.
Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the hotel last weekend. The room was very comfortable and the food in Carriages restaurant was excellent.
All the staff were very attentive but not intrusive.
We were celebrating our 29th Wedding Anniversary and the card left on our dinner table was a very nice touch!
We will certainly be recommending the hotel to friends and, who knows, if we make it to our Pearl Anniversary next year we may return!!
Many thanks once again
Sorry for the delay in writing a review, just catching up after our Honeymoon.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at the hotel for an absolutely perfect Wedding Day (you even managed to arrange the weather for us). Everything ran perfectly, from the ceremony to the wedding breakfast, and evening reception. The tables in the restaurant, looked stunning & everyone has commented how wonderful the food was and how well organised the service at the tables was. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. Thank you so much out for making our day so perfect. Karen & Ben.
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to The Alveston House Hotel for an absolutely perfect wedding day reception on Saturday. We were so blown away by everything you all did and it was perfect. Our guests loved the room and decorations and everyone was raving about the food which was stunning. We were so happy with everything and everyone who was helping us out was lovely..Thank you so much for making our day perfect. We will definitely have you as our first choice for any future celebrations and I won't be able to stop raving about you to everyone!
What an amazing place! Our Golden wedding celebration was a knockout! Thanks to the kindness and attentiveness of everyone at the hotel, the food was wonderful, the room we were given was terrific. I was even allowed to put up my own decorations. Our son stayed there for the night, he'd driven a long way, and we had a great dinner together. I can't find any fault with this lovely, clean, comfortable and attentive place and, no, I'm not related to the owner!
The present Mrs B and I dropped in here for lunch yesterday. The lady that owns it (I later discovered) happened to be in reception and was very welcoming. Our coats were taken and we were shown into a very pleasant dining room, very light and clean. Service was attentive and polite, just right! We enjoyed a pleasant lunch, very tasty and more than we could eat! Really good coffee to finish. We got chatting with some other people, everyone commented how much they enjoyed the experience at the hotel. Well worth a visit :-)
A group of 19 family members stayed at Alveston House for a couple of nights to attend my son's wedding in Bristol. 22 of us sat down to a lovely meal on Friday evening. The facilities were excellent, the food was delicious but above all the staff were extremely helpful - nothing was too much trouble.
I would unhesitatingly recommend the hotel. If we are ever that way again we shall certainly stay there.
We stayed at the Alveston Hotel to attend a family wedding. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist and shown to our room which was lovely. We wanted just a small snack at lunchtime and they provided exactly what we wanted (which wasnt on their menu). Evening meal we had there was also very nice as was the breakfast. Good choice of food. Asked to borrow an iron which was promptly delivered to our room with a board too. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
I ate in this very crisply restaurant as a guest at the hotel and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The canapes were a deft touch and coupled with a glass of their excellent house red, a great accompaniment to the task of choosing from the varied menu. The menu has an excellent selection and the Market Menu at £25 for three courses delivered excellent dishes, beautifully presented. This was a really good dining experience and I would make a detour spcifically to dine there again.
Every time I have a birthday which ends with zero, I have a party at Alveston House Hotel! I find it fairly stressful arranging such events but the every single member of staff is calm, professional, friendly, and efficient, so I find I have no choice but to relax and enjoy myself. Saturday 26th January was no exception. My guests and I have nothing but praise for the food, the service, the venue. The entire event was seamless. Thank you all!

Morning Julie, please thank the A- team for making our Valentines dinner perfect.
It was great to see the restaurant full, busy and buzzing – all of the diners were having a great time and the team were working hard, effectively and unobtusively. Here’s a little of what I saw and what we remarked on.
The ‘little touches’ of; rose petals, balloons, drinks specials, chocs and a leaving gift were exquisite
The menu was creative and inspired and all the food was cooked to perfection. We overheard other guests commenting about the great food and especially on the quality of the meats.
The entire evening scored a 10/10
Thank You - Liz Griffiths
I attended a course at Alveston house hotel January 2013. I found it to be the perfect venue , friendly, attentive staff , excellent facilities , easily accessible with excellent refreshments and lunch. It was good to see such a 'hands-on' owner in attendance - a very good day ! Robert Buck

Thank you so much to all the Alveston House Hotel Team.
I attended a seminar given by Dr Gregory Haddock (Business Coach) last Thursday 24th January at Alveston House and had a great day. What a fantastic venue and facility! Easy to find on the A.38 with great links just off the M4 and M5 motorways .
From the warm friendly welcome at arrival in reception and then throughout the day, we were all as a group of some 40 people extremely well looked after.
Plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits at regular intervals and a fantastic buffet at lunch time. All laid out and timed to perfection enabling us as a group to relax and network during the breaks.
I am looking forward to going back for similar occasions and will hope to use the Hotel itself for an overnight stay in the very near future to sample the other delights it has to offer.
Recommendations will be passed onto friends and family also. You are doing a great job keep it going.
I have attend a number of business meeting at this venue the latest being on the 24th Jan
I have always been impressed by both the standard of the decor and the attentiveness of the staff. All is highly professional and I would have no hesitation in recommending this venue

'Wow!' - how do you do it so well? Liz and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you last week - thank you. The room was warm, clean and quiet and the food was far too delicious. I'd recommend you to anybody staying near Bristol. 10/10 for value, quality and friendliness.

Had a great day at Alveston House Hotel today. I highly recommend the hotel for their conference facilities, great food and above all, service with a smile! Thank you.
I stayed overnight on the 23rd January and attended a workshop the following day. I cannot thank the hotel staff enough, they were helpful & attentive, the food was excellent as was the accommodation. I will be back.
Just back from a conference at this hotel today. The hotel accomodated very professionally for over 40 people and ensured the event went vey smoothly. The conference had extra attendees turn up unexpectedly and even this didn't phase the hotel so I was very, very impressed. The facilities are excellent and the food at lunchtime was just right. Extremely tasty with an excellent variety of food to suit all tastes. I will definately return to this venue and will also enquire about hosting a private party in the future.
Thank you to all the staff they were very polite and extremely efficient. 10/10
The Alveston House Hotel is all about quality, from the moment you arrive in the car park and walk into the warm and welcoming reception area you know that you are in a well managed and maintained Hotel. Following a warm welcome we were shown into the equally impressive dining room, where the tables had been tastefully laid to reflect the Chrstmas spirt. Our party of nine had already pre-ordered a variety of traditional Christmas fayre, and all commented on the quality of both the food and service provided to us throughout the course of the evening. Although I cannot comment on the accommodation or a la carte menu (but based on our experience) I would expect an equally high standard, the hotel presents also offers a good choice of reasonably priced quality wines.
We stayed at Alveston House Hotel and were immediately impressed with the staff and surroundings, both showed attention to detail; the staff making you feel they completely enjoyed providing attentive and happy service, the hotel and room décor in fantastic order. We stayed for a single night but were made to feel the most important people in the hotel, night and day staff were fantastic, the breakfast was great and small things like taxi bookings were nothing more than part of the service – thank you all at the Alveston. By far better than and branded hotel.
Wow! If Carlsberg did hotels......... I had lunch in Carriages with a friend before Christmas and we were both blown away with the fab food and excellent service. The atmosphere was just right for chatting, relaxing and savouring all the chefs delights. Well done to Julie and the A-team 10/10

I would like to thank all the staff at Alveston House Hotel for the perfect wedding day for my son and new daughter in law, James and Georgie. Nothing was any trouble and when the registrar failed to arrive the staff reassured us, and managed the situation with ease. The food, service and organisation was exemplary. We all had the most wonderful time and would highly recommend this venue to others. Thank you so much and I hope you all have a very happy Christmas.
