“I'd rather have slept in the car!!”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

Truly awful place, staff were friendly enough, but didn't have a clue, & spoke poor English, the first room I was given was already occupied, the next had not been cleaned! bed unmade & breakfast leftovers still in the room at 18.40!! when i finally got a room it was tiny, not even enough room for a chair, the kettle chord was too short to reach the socket, so it had to be balanced on my bag, then after all that the milk was off!!! the shower was so small I could not turn around without opening the door, the bed was uncomfortable and the curtains fell down!!!!
I should have realised something was wrong before I got to the rooms as there was a lot of tiles missing in the corridor ceilings! apart from that, it's badly signposted, difficult to find, with a car park which is more like a wasteground!!! cost me £40!! I'd have felt better if i'd given my money to the homeless and slept in a shop doorway! I complained to the man on duty the following morning and his reply was 'Oh Well' !!!!! Truly a place to avoid !!!!

Room Tip: Rooms in a travelodge, premier inn, or even a park bench are better!!!

Dear Reviewer

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review on this third party website.

I am at a loss with regards to your review heading at how you would rather stay in the car!

With regards to your comments about my staff and their oral English our reception staff are actually English and from Gloucester?

The hotel opened brand new and whilst I agree we have experienced teething problems like any new hotel I do feel you have over exaggerated in your review.

All our rooms are cleaned and maintained to a high standard, each room has tea and coffee facilities, free wifi, 42 inch plasma televisions and a complimentary continental breakfast. I understand that the rate you paid was £40?

I am sorry we have not met your expectations on this occasion and I would like to thank you for your response.
