“Top Notch”
Reviewed March 21, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed here with friends (2 couples and a single), for the Cheltenham Festival.

From start to finish our experience was excellent.

Booking was made with minimal fuss, and the owners were easily contacted on here and on the phone. The location couldn't be any better, plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and the town and station a short walk away. We had breakfast at the Wetherspoons round the corner (2 minute walk) and had a few drinks at the local bars.

The cottage itself was in fantastic condition, with the bathroom and kitchen particularly impressive. There was milk in the fridge which was a lovely touch,

Overall couldn't have been happier. Thanks for having us, we'd definitely book again if needing anywhere local.

“Beautiful finish and super friendly hosts”
Reviewed March 1, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Stayed here with 2 friends in January as we are studying nearby in Hartpury College. Exceptional finish and attention to detail throughout the whole cottage, although we did take a while to work out the hob!! Liked it so much we are heading back down tomorrow for another few days. Great access to the centre of Gloucester and all it has to offer!

Beautiful cottage furnished to a really high spec. Mike & Dorota are the perfect hosts - friendly, welcoming and really helpful. We loved our stay at the cottage for our friends wedding.

“Perfect for short Rugby stay”
Reviewed December 26, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

I have stayed in many holiday rentals in the docks in Gloucester as I go to the rugby a lot being originally from Glos. This newly refurbished cottage is a class above everywhere else I've stayed. Location is spot on, absolutely spot on. Parking just behind in the well disguised multi storey. Plenty of space for a large family. Kitchen fully stocked. Heating that works. Decent shower. A couple of miniscule moans, which I'm sure are already sorted, no dvd player and the upstairs could really do with an ensuite or tiny bathroom. Although its probably a listed building so the owners are probably restricted to what they can do.

Overall, easily the best place I've stayed in Gloucester, and when you compare the prices with nearby rentals, its great value as well.

Thanks Si so glad you enjoyed your stay and we have addressed the dvd you mentioned and have installed a Blu Ray player for your next visit. Yes you are correct we are restricted to what we can do as the properties are historic buildings in a conservation area. Look forward to seeing you again in January.

“Perfect property for what we needed”
Reviewed December 2, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Travelled to Gloucester with as a group of friends, for a birthday weekend.
Booking could not have been easier, and Mike and Dorota (the owners) were fantastic from start to finish.
Very warm welcome by Dorota, the property was spotless and in a fantastic location.
We have a thoroughly enjoyable visit, and should we ever find ourselves in Gloucester again, we will definitely be looking to stay at Albion Cottage again.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at the Albion Cottage for 2 nights. It is in a fantastic location in the middle of the Docks - easy to find and with secure parking close by. We have young children and it was fine to park outside for 20 mins to unload them and the bags before parking. We arrived much later than intended - nearly 11pm - and yet it was no trouble and Mike and his wife were great at helping us settle in. The milk, juice, fruit, kitkats and wine were lovely touches and the owners were incredibly welcoming. Gloucester is a lovely English town and we got to stay in a really central location. We would highly recommend Albion Cottages.
