“Great place to stay.”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We were in a bit of a spot as the hotel we should have stayed in for a second night was disgusting. We were looking for somewhere at very short notice and they managed to fit us in. Its a nice, slightly quirky, rambling place and we had the smallest room but we were very comfortable. Breakfast was included and was excellent. The staff were all very attentive and helpful. Would definitely visit again.

Not luxury by any means but excellent value for money and completely adequate in all departments. Bathroom fittings and decoration a bit dated (compared to say a Premier Inn) but all clean and completely functional. Decor is a bit quirky but not at all unpleasant. This is really a B&B. Breakfast was fine served in a nice bright lounge but you will need to go out for an evening meal. Strong point is good parking. Easy to find by car if you follow the directions on their web site Location is not prime, its just outside old centre of Gloucester and a very easy walk to Cathedral, shops and docks. Although anyone who is a bit unfit could find walking to the docks a bit of a distance.
PS Gloucester an interesting City for a stop over. Cathedral and Docks well worth a visit and some interesting old buildings. But also a bit down at heel in places . Not somewhere to visit for the shopping

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.

Room Tip: Suggest getting a room at the rear of the hotel if you are a light sleeper, as London Road can get q...

We stayed at the Edward Hotel for 2 nights we chose the hotel as it had parking. On arriving we were met by I assume the owner who was full of information but not really welcoming. I feel the room was overpriced and in need of a lick of paint. We had room 4 the flush worked but not all the time we reported it and were told it would be fixed this did not happen it would flush once then not again for hours so the kettle came in handy for clearing the loo which also did not seem to be fixed to the floor, if you were a little on the heavy side there could be a safety issue. Breakfast the first morning was ok I had a poached egg and tomatoes which tasted awful. My partners was ok. The next breakfast was cold and dried up. I asked for my toast to be a little more cooked it did not happen. When we left there was no one around to ask if we enjoyed our stay. Needless to say we will not be going again.

Very much an owner-run hotel, very conveniently situated for Gloucester city centre. We had a superior double which was at the back of the building which had an anti-room/small sitting room which we used to dump our cases and coats etc. It had a suitcase stand for each of us.

The room itself wasn't huge but it was warm, likewise the shower room. Breakfast was fine, the coffee kept on coming! The Edward has a small bar and a sitting room off. When they light the open fire it must be very cosy. They sell the local Gloucester Brewery ale in bottles. That was a bonus!

The owners, St John & Karen, were very helpful, especially about places to eat or visit. Karen marked up a photocopied streetplan for us which we found very useful. Being able to park (for free!) in a secure location so close to the centre was also a bonus. We were not hassled at all to move the car after we checked out. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 2 at the rear was very quiet at night
