Great price, great location, friendly staff, excellent room, most excellent bed
For Gloucester, the Cathedral is one of the most important in Europe, the Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful regions of England. Regency Cheltenham is nearby too.
The hotel is divided into the bedroom building and the Wheatstone Inn, where you can have breakfast, dinner and has a full traditional bar. The distance between the buldings is about 30 steps!
The hotel is just off the A40, coming from Cheltenham, Stroud directions its just on the left, from the left turn on the roundabout. As its a dual carriageway you will need to carry on westbound to the next roundabout and come back down the other side.
Don't expect great views, it looks over the Walls Ice Cream factory, however, there is a lovely path leading townwards, follow this and in about 10 minutes you will come across a lovely arboretum. Perfect for a stroll on a warm sunny evening, it has giant Red Woods and an Indian Bean Tree, amongst many trees and meadow flowers.
You can walk all the way into the city centre from this path too. It also serves a cycle track.
That's about it!
