The Edward Hotel seems to be very highly rated by locals, and having stayed a few days I can see why. The location is very convenient, just a short walk to the centre of Gloucester and maybe 15 minutes to the docks and Quays. Having its own (free) car park is great, too. The staff were all very friendly, welcoming and helpful, and the cooked breakfast is very large and very good. We had a room at the rear of the hotel, and it was very quiet and made for good sleeping. The room was also very clean. Our room was also very good value, given its size and how well it was equipped.
The only downside was the decor, which is dated and fairly tired - you shouldn't go expecting a boutique hotel like a Hotel du Vin. However, I'd happily trade that for the excellent service and great value.
