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.

Just to say thank you very much to everyone involved in my Birthday lunch on the 25th October. It was a lovely occasion, excellent food and service and all our guests were very complimentary.  Look forward to the next occasion.

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.

Mr and Mrs Thompson – May 2016

To all the staff at Alveston House Hotel.
The Hayes family wish to express their sincere thanks for giving all 5 of us a warm welcome, excellent service and above all a tasty Lunch.
The “Full House” gave the atmosphere a real sense of celebration, which all your guests were enjoying.
We particularly wish to say “Thank You” for your extra staff in participation of the demand.
Sadly we have recently visited several Restaurants, where cut back on staffing levels has left much to be desired.
We look forward to our next Celebration.

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.

Deb and Dave – February 2016

I would like to congratulate you on the meal that you provided for my party on the 16th the food was excellent and it came out very fresh, and hot, the staff was extremely helpful and polite. It was a really afternoon and everyone who came enjoyed it.

Once again a big thank you and I do hope to do business with you in the future.

Susan Bisp – December 2015

Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed the party night, it was well organised, service was excellent, food lovely and served hot, nice to have Cheese and Biscuits as an option for dessert as usually it’s an extra and not on the menu, 7 out of our party of 16 had them.
The Quiz was great, a good idea just after eating our meal and before the disco.
The only negative comment I have is that there was no Christmas music played at the disco!
So a big thank you to all.

Sue Drew – December 2015

Can I please say that my mother very much enjoyed her 90th birthday luncheon yesterday. Please thank all your staff, all mums’ guests commented on how nice the food was and what a lovely place for lunch.
Once again many thanks

Just a brief note to say thank you so much for making the birthday party for my wife so memorable. The room was lovely, the food superb (thanks to the chef) and we were looked after with charming unobtrusive efficiency. Please give my thanks and that of the whole party to all involved.

Birthday Celebration – John P – October 2015

Thank you so much for looking after our guests and ourselves so wonderfully well,
on the occasion of our silver wedding anniversary celebration.
The way you made us feel so welcome, and the way your staff looked after us
was really lovely – gentle, warm, and friendly; efficient but discreet.
We had lots of compliments about the food, and our clever choice of hotel.
The service we all received was everything that we could have wished for.
There can be no doubt, you will be receiving plenty of re-visit enquiries.
Well done, and good fortune!

Silver Wedding Anniversary – Mr & Mrs Phillips – July 2015

We would like to thank all at Alveston House Hotel for making our Ruby Wedding celebration so special. You staff were brilliant and so helpful. Everyone of our guests thought how wonderful you all made the day for us.

Ruby Wedding Anniversary – Mr & Mrs Cranfield – July 2015

My partner has some very strict dietary requirements and the team at Carriages were absolutely exceptional in meeting his needs and enabling us to have a meal out. I emailed the team to see if they’d be able to accommodate our needs and they phoned me back almost instantly. We discussed what he could and couldn’t eat and our meal was prepared for us specially so all his needs could be met. The food was tasty and nicely paced, making for a relaxing and delicious evening. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough if you have special requirements in your diet. The whole team are very professional and willing to help in every way possible! Go there!

Trip Advisor Review – July 2015

We dined here to celebrate my wife’s birthday on 1st June 2015 and everything was just perfect. Right from my initial visit to book a table, the staff were polite, helpful, and professional. They also provided me with a copy of the menu to peruse. That evening On arrival for dinner The food we had was excellent on every level, presented with style, and yet the pricing was HIGHLY competitive. When booking earlier on, I had mentioned my wife’s birthday in passing, the staff had taken note, and when we were shown to our table there was a lovely birthday card from the staff and the hotel … what a great touch. Ample parking right outside, lovely décor, easy to find on the A38 Near Thornbury, and brilliant service throughout. I strongly recommend them … they will actually want your business and are prepared to make the effort to give you a lovely evening. We will definitely be dining here again. Can’t recommend them highly enough!

Birthday meal – Mr Betts – June 2015

Just a note of gratitude to say how much we have enjoyed several celebratory meals with you.

All your staff are courteous & attentive and a credit to you.
