We booked the budget room, don't! Apart from that the hotel was very nice, the other rooms looked lovely, the breakfast was very good and the location was ideal. Our budget room was fairly tatty and very noisy, creaking floorboards above where the stairs went up and over our room and noisy pipes, either heating or water. The dining room...

It was a nicely furbished hotel with friendly staff, clean beds and bathrooms. We had a really good sleep here. It was a quiet and peaceful street. However - we didn't like the reception girl banging on our door at 10:30am to remind us check-out is in an hour. She could've phoned us or knocked on the door; instead, she...

Came here to stop over for a rugby match at Kingsholm. Hotel is beautifully sited within 10 minutes walking distance of the train station or the town centre or the rugby ground. The staff are courteous & flexible & the breakfasts are excellent. Rooms are spacious with a slightly old-fashioned touch but very comfortable nonetheless. I unhesitatingly recommend it as...

The room was clean and the radiator responded quickly to changes to the dial. There were problems with water pressure in the shower, but it was adequate. Breakfast was very good and the staff efficient. This is the kind of hotel I really enjoy staying in, as a contrast to modern soulless chains.

Cold,dank, dirty,dilapadated,the single room on the ground floor i stayed in was like a prison cell, the shower and toilet had seen better days (those days being the early 1970s) only redeeming features were its...

This hotel was booked for me by another - for taking a group of young athletes to a competition. It had been picked due to its central location ( it also has parking if needed), and the person who had recommended it also said how helpful the staff were. I really wasn't sure what to expect - being out of...

We arrived just after 11.30 and were checked in a reception with no problems. The car park is to the rear of the hotel and was easy enough to find and ample space. Our room was Budget room on the roadside of the hotel on the ground floor. There was no road noise I could here and no internal noise....

Reasonable budget hotel in convenient location for centre of Gloucester. Free car park. Room very clean, and perfectly comfortable. Good selection of freeview TV channels and radio channels. Fair breakfast. Not a boutique hotel and not a chain.

The hotel was well located, 15 to 20 mins walk to the centre of Gloucester. We stayed on the cold weekend 5th and 6th of November. The room was very cold the radiators were off, when I asked the owner about it he said didn't you turn them on, I thought they came on automatic. On return to the hotel...

The main attraction of this Hotel is the location, being 10 minutes walk from the centre, and the free car park at the rear. As a consequence we were able to park up for the weekend and walk into the centre and have a drink without any worries. There's also a bus stop nearby if you want to go further....
