Very charming and quaint but the bed was the worst I have ever slept on! It was so hard & I don't think it had a matrass pad on it. A simple foam egg carton like pad probably would have done the trick. Other than that the Inn was very clean and the staff was wonderful!

The Castle Manor Inn is a beautiful place with stunning views. We stay in one of the extension off the castle. The room was nice and had a wonderful king size bed and house keeping did an excellent job of maintaining our room for us. The only thing miss from the room was a small refrigerator and a microwave.

We stayed here with another couple and absolutely loved it. Cozy and charming! We stayed in the Turret Room- which was perfect. We were there on a chilly rainy day and the little space heater in the room was a great amenity to have. The bed was super comfortable and the sitting area perfect for morning coffee. The grounds are... More

This 1900 home converted to an inn is everything one expects in beautiful, quaint Gloucester. The rooms were lovely, the home itself was so warm and inviting, the coffee hot and delicious, the beds so comfortable, I could go on and on.

The restaurant for dinner serves brilliant local food. The chef, Seth really knew how to prepare a gourmet meal that our only regret was that we had to travel on. We had a cute upstairs room in the manor then a room in the motel section. Both had views and were comfortable and clean. The staff really made one feel... More

Nice place, even if we were not inside the old-main House (but it was written in the booking mail that we've received). The beds were comfortable, a little bit hard the pillows.

First off, the people, servers are all really nice and accommodating. But, the room we got at the very last minute was not the best. There was a rumble from the kitchen vent under us that doesn't stop until the kitchen closes at about 9pm. So if you want to get in early, it's not such a good idea. There... More
