We spent a long weekend in the Cotswolds/Bath, and stayed at the Queensberry in a Deluxe Double Room for GBP255 per night for two of the three nights. If I had it to do over again, we would have stayed only 1 night at the Queensberry and 2 nights at the delightful Ellenborough Park hotel in Cheltenham instead.
The room photos on hotel website are a bit misleading, as they clearly were taken when the rooms were newly renovated. The rooms today, however, are a bit tired. The light colored wall-to-wall carpet in our room was stained/discolored in places. The walls and trim could use some touch-up paint as well. Together, this gave the whole room a slightly dirty and 'cheap' feeling to it. [Advice to owners: consider ripping out the carpet and replacing with hardwood floors and area rugs instead.]
Another key disappointment was the bed. The king bed was not truly a king bed, but rather two twin mattresses covered with a mattress pad.
This one is a matter of personal preference, but I found The White Company toiletries really too pungent for use. I can't imagine any guy wanting to subject himself to this overpowering scented shampoo or shower gel.
Wifi signal in our room was weak/non-existent, even though we were only on the 2nd floor, directly above lobby/bar. Nothing memorable about breakfast. Complimentary afternoon tea (tea only, no snacks) a nice touch. Location is fine, as the major sites are all a short walk.
All-in-all, a forgettable stay, and as a result, not at all great value for the money we paid.
