We stayed here with the express intention of seeing the Severn bore. What a fortuitous choice. We arrived much earlier than anticipated, but were made very welcome and the knowledgeable receptionist helpfully advised on a great walk into Gloucester. Interesting location close to the river on marshy land above Gloucester, with an opportunity to visit the restored canal basin at...

The food at this hotel is excellent. My husband and I had different choices from the menu and it was all very good. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Lovely hand cream and shower gel etc and home made biscuits in the room. We were looked after very well by both the manager and staff. This is...

The food really was exceptional, we ate in the restaurant twice and everyone mentioned the quality of the food. We were a large party taking up several rooms, they were all spotless, comfy, welcoming and excellent room products to use, a bonus that they have 1 dog friendly room. Breakfast was very high quality also, staff were attentive and genuinely...

Nice house and surroundings, enjoyable walk to docks area and easy to get a taxi to town. We booked 2 rooms- a luxury and superior. One cost £12 more than the other, but there was little difference. The rooms were smallish but clean, apart from dusty bedside lamps. Pleasant view, enjoyable breakfast with good quality food, although we had to...

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed our stunning location as much as we do, the views and walks really are lovely aren't they!

We stayed one night at this hotel outside of Gloucester and had an evening meal here following attending a concert at the cathedral in town. The premises are owned by the Gloucestershire and Herefordshire Canal Trust and we were amazed to learn that all the building work was done by volunteers. The hotel and restaurant's takings contribute to the Trust's...

Situated just off the A40, we found The Wharfhouse hard to find in the dark, we would suggest illuminated signage to rectify this. We had arrived after a three hour drive to meet friends, the first thing we were asked for were breakfast choices when all we wanted was to find a loo and change for dinner! The luxury king...

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback on your recent stay at The Wharf House. Unfortunately, our signage is the maximum size the local authority would allow us to have.

A lovely stay at The Wharf House, brilliantly placed for visiting Gloucester, just a pleasant walk in. We really appreciated being able to get dinner even though we were very late checking in. Delicious white house wine! Very comfortable all round.

Didn't know this place existed. Only found it by accident on a last minute web site. A real gem. Peaceful haven close to Gloucester; comfortable, good food, friendly service. We ate in the restaurant, good food, reasonable choice and not that expensive.

This hotel is one of the best experiences that we have had. The setting is idiyllic, the rooms are so comfortable and the breakfast delicious. It is truly one of Gloucestershire hidden gems. The host was a source of interesting information regarding the history of the building and the surrounding area and it definitely calls for a return visit.

An AA Red Rosette 4 Gold Star Restaurant with Rooms serving quality freshley prepared produce. 7 lovely ensuite rooms of real character with views of the Canal or River inclucing one ground floor room with independant access which is suitable for dogs and is fully accessable. We would strongly request and advise advance Reservations for the Restaurant. Signature dishes such as Venison rolled in Walnut with a sauce of red currants with a hint of Dark Chocolate and vegeterian and fish dishes that show imagination feature.Please note that we do not have a childrens menu but welcome young diners who will not disturb our other guests and wish to experience the normal a la carte menu. Our menus are designed as three courses, with side dishes available for those who wish, but the option to choose less courses if you wish less. We also offer both an Original and Vegeterian 7 course Tasting Menu. We would recomend bookings at least 48 hours in advance as some dates can be booked weeks in advance. ... more   less
