“Plain but does what it says on the tin”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

I stayed here while attending a wedding nearby. The hotel is very centrally located and it was an easy walk from the railway station.

There is nothing special about this hotel. It is no outstanding features. But nothing wrong with it either. The check in person was professional and efficient. My room was clean, the bed comfy. The bathroom was smart and the shower really excellent. Plenty of towels.

I didn't visit the hotel bar. And I went out for breakfast as it wasn't included. Value for money was fine.

I would stay again if I was in the area.

I've stayed in this hotel before and have found it to be satisfactory. But on this occasion I was disappointed.

Where shall i start....a mysterious stain on a wall by the bed, a cracked window, the other window had a plant up against it on the outside, there was stains on the bedside lampshades and also dirt on the wall tiles by the bath/shower. On the plus side, plenty of space in the room and the bed was comfortable.

We recently did a short road trip and stayed at the New County and the only thing 2 bad things I could say about the place is, it would have been nice If breakfast had of been included in the price and the room was boiling hot. Saying that it was one of the hottest days of the years and a fan was provided.
On the up side, the location was fantastic. Very close to shops, pubs, the fantastic historic Gloucester Docks, restaurants and food outlets where you can easily pick breakfast up for a few pounds. We stayed in room 27 and the view of the church over the way was lovely :))

Efficient and clean hotel. Building has character but has been tastefully decorated. Pay extra for breakfast normally (6 pounds) but they honoured a mistake with expedia without being asked. Good cooked breakfast, juice, limitless tea etc. Quiet at night if in back rooms. Not sure if in front.

My friends & I chose to eat at the New County as we live local & like to support our local businesses.
On entering the hotel we were pleasantly surprised at the lovely modern interior, it was a warm Saturday evening, there was no air conditioning, no fans & no windows to open, it became very uncomfortable.
The two female staff on duty were very welcoming & very attentive.
Two members of our party chose the sirloin steak, despite being £16.99 each, however its was poor, lots of gristle, very chewy & quite small in size.
We are not complainers, but decided to air our concerns to the waitress as she had been very keen to see we were all happy with everything.
The waitress said she would speak to someone, that was the last we heard. not wanting to make a fuss, we paid the bill & left.
Sadly we wont be eating there again, which is a shame as it was a lovely evening except for the food.
The staff are excellent & very friendly & a credit to the hotel.

In Gloucester overnight to visit friends. Central position, we unloaded the car outside, booked in and found our room easily. We then parked the car immediately behind the hotel with a reduced price parking voucher. £3.00 for 24 hours. Our ensuite budget room was small, clean with a comfortable bed. Bathroom was fine with wonderful power shower, toiletries and soft towels. Kettle with teas and coffees on hand. We had a good quiet nights sleep and a good breakfast. The cathedral, shops, harbour and quay all within easy reach. Compared to other local hotels the price was incredibly reasonable.We'll definitely stay here next time.

Room Tip: On a Saturday night mid July it was quiet in the area, though the hotel does have functions.

Room was clean and had most of the expected facilities but unbearably hot. No air-conditioning though the hotel did supply a fan (and a 2nd one when I asked) but didn't really help.
No hotel information in the room so was unaware of meal times, wifi etc.
Staff were pleasant enough but I left my phone charger in the room by accident and I'm still waiting for it to be returned.

Room Tip: rooms at the back of the hotel will be quieter than at the front as those look directly onto a coupl...
