Room was very comfortable, restaurant was excellent, breakfast was excellent, staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very well staffed.
The gym is the worst I have seen, the pool, sauna etc is great, but the weights area was shockingly bad. I was able to get a session in as no one else was around but the weights area can only accomodate one person.
the staff were great
food was very poor apart from the breakfast!!
It was such a beautiful setting and the hotel was very convenient for visiting Gloucester
the staff were excellenet, gave lots of advice and were very customer focussed
The professional friendly staff.
Having to trudge up to our top floor room. Did not know there was no lift.
friendly helpfull staff
room on first night too small for a double, changed room second night all ok
nice location, good but reasonably expensive food
all or nothing heating that sounded like a bank of extractor fans. very staid atmosphere. the most uncomfortable bed i have ever not slept on, not what you would expect from a "quality" hotel. we may still visit again but will run a mile if they try putting us in room 240, a definite no-no.
lovely setting ideal location for exploring cotswolds
we had the last room available which was atwin not a double as booked. The rooms were extremely warm(too warm) even with the fan supplied. Breakfasr was pletiful and varied but very average buffet style and the warmers tend to dry the food out and not keep it very warm at all. The second day was slightly better.
The service in the resturant
Fresh friut at breakfast, comfortable surroundings, friendly staff
