This is our third stay at this lovely hotel and we will definitely be back. You are made to feel so welcome by the friendly staff and nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated and the beds are really comfortable. The food is excellent and the waiting staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a lovely setting with beautiful grounds and is also just a short drive from Gloucester. Highly recommended!

Comfortable Stay

Claudette Families - 13/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

On arrival I was greeted by friendly and helpful staff at reception. My twin room was clean, though no wardrobe, just a minimal space to hang a few items. It was my birthday weekend whilst there, and dinner on the first day went well. Day two evening meal our group had over an hour wait for starters. No apologies as to why. On checking out two family members were charged twice for their room. In closing, I felt that there were good points and areas that could improve. I thought your booking system wasn't very clear which is why the error occured with the over charging.

Zoe W. Couples - 11/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our weekend stay ended up being one night instead of two, our room was disgustingly filthy, the bed was incredibly small and covered in hair it was 34C with a fan on , The reception manager was rude and unhelpful and couldn't wait to leave .

Room was fairly basic but clean and comfortable. Restaurant had good evening meal menu but breakfast was a little average. Receptionists were really welcoming and friendly.

Booking chaos

Customer review rating 0.5/5

Anonymous Families - 10/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Wedding was amazing. But hotel bookings were terrible. The eastern European lady on the desk was the most chaotic hotelier I have ever met. All our bookings were messed up. And money was taken from accounts it shouldn't have been. I booked rooms for my friends. And on check out they were going to pay on the way out... The hotel automatically charged my card. Which I didn't even put down for the rooms. Awful. Luckily I had the money available in my account.

A pleasant stay

Anonymous Families - 10/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The lady that greeted us on arrival gave us a warm welcome was very helpful, explained everything we needed to know, changed our room without me asking as you have no lift which i didn't read, and I'm disabled so made it easier. Our meal in the evening was very nice and the staff in the restaurant were excellent, polite, attentive, and gave good service.

A nice stay in the Gloucestershire countryside

Patrick S. Couples - 05/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

3 night stay, all the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful throughout. Excellent choice for breakfast and the evening meals were superb. We booked the VPod for Friday evening and it was a wonderful experience for our Wedding Anniversary, the gentleman who attended was brilliant, we would also like to mention the young gentleman on reception as he couldn't do enough for us with any questions or requests.

Great weekend break

Friendly and efficient receptionist, comfortable and quiet room, dinner acceptable, but extortionate drink price (£15 for one glass of house Rose).

Very welcoming and friendly.
