“The kids liked it as much as us!”
Reviewed 17 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We loved the location, a few minutes from the town center and the farmers market on Saturday morning as well as Waitrose a 2min drive away. The apartment was very bright, comfortable, spacious and well decorated. Having a parking space at the back of the building was appreciated too. The kitchen was really well equipped and the shower really powerful.
Both kids and parents liked not having to share a room. To sum up, we'll go there again if we visit Stroud in future!

“Brilliant place to stay in a great location.”

We stayed in Apartments One and Two over the Christmas week and had a fantastic time. The Apartments were immaculately clean and really well equipped. The beds and bed linen were beautiful, and we so appreciated the lovely robes, slippers and toiletries. Jane had even provided us with a seven foot Christmas tree, a great range of toys for the children and other baby equipment, all in beautiful condition. As a family group with small children this accommodation cannot be faulted and we are all very keen to come back here next year. The location is ideal, being a two minute walk from both the town and the station with loads to see and do locally. Thanks so much Jane, we really appreciated the opportunity to stay in such lovely accommodation and will certainly be back.

“Not 4* appointed apartments poor location heavy traffic noise.”
Reviewed 22 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

person found this review helpful

We stayed in Bell House apartments in August 2011 for a long weekend and used apartments 1 and 2 for nine family members. Both apartments were averagely appointed and not 4* as described in the booking information. The main problem with the apartments is that they are situated approx 50 yards from a very busy roundabout in Stroud and the noise from traffic was constant- so much so that we were reluctant to open bedroom windows at the front of the property at night - and it was hot!. The location of the property is not adequately explained in the rental advert and we found it to be in a run down area - the adjacent canal being smelly and full of discarded bottles and litter. There are no up to date pictures of the property location showing its proximity to the roundabout on the advertisers website. To sum up had we been aware of the exact location we would not have booked this apartment.

Management Response

Bell House Apartments were awarded an independent Four Star rating by Quality in Tourism for Visit England in May 2011. The location of Bell House is accurately pinpointed on Google Maps on all of our advertising sites, including our own webpage. Although the Google road map is still accurate, please note that Google Earth and Google Satellite images are not as the locality has been greatly improved with the construction of a new canal bridge, and the addition of a lock side café alongside Bell House. At the time of writing Street View is particularly unhelpful as it shows the bridge construction site in early Summer in full swing, with traffic diverted directly by Bell House on Wallbridge. Bridge construction was completed in July, and Wallbridge has since been returned to a quiet cul de sac. New images will be posted shortly. All enquirers were informed of the canals restoration and bridge construction at the time of booking if it was expected to impact on their stay, and given the name of the Cotswolds Canals Trust Visitor Centre located at Bell House to contact for further information. It is regrettable that temporary road works, road closures and diversions completely unrelated to the new canal bridge resulted in an unusual amount of traffic in the area at the time of the guest's visit.
