“Great location”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

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
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!
HOTEL ACCESS
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.
SURROUNDINGS
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!

We frequently stay at Premier Inns and love them, however this was left us disappointed. The staff were lovely and the location good however, bizarrely, the room was like a sauna. I know it was August but outside the temperature was only 17degrees. Why then, in our room was it 26.2 degrees all the time? We stayed for two nights but had very little sleep. Although fans were provided they were noisy and inadequate. We slept with the window open, trying to let some cool air in but as our room was above reception (201) the noise of people/ taxis/cars coming and going all night disturbed us. I am aware of the good night guarantee promise but quite frankly thought that it would seem ridiculous to complain about the heat. Premier inn can you tell me why that room is like a sauna? Is it over a laundry room or something?

This premier inn is in a convenient location for a stopover when travelling along the M5, and has good sized rooms and comfortable beds. It is also clean and the staff are helpful and friendly.

BUT unfortunately we had a terrible nights sleep because of the outrageous heat. The fan was on all night and the windows were open to try and cool the room down, but that created a good deal of noise from traffic and the fan. I had to try and cool the room down though because my 9 year old son was tossing and turning, sweating and crying all night because of the heat. The room thermometer never got below 27.5 degrees Celsius, far too hot for a comfortable nights sleep.

We went to the adjacent pub for dinner. It was mad busy and way overpriced for standard pub food. At £10.49 for a chicken salad and £4.99 for dessert our family meal for 5 with drinks ended up costing £80 which cancels out the benefit of booking a budget hotel.

Premier Inn is in effect a budget chain. However, I think it is at the top of that particular league. It was clean with modern facilities. Bedroom and bathroom were spotless.

All of the staff were helpful and keen to provide a hospitable and efficient stay. Premier may become my regular overnight stopping place.

There was little noise overnight, even in a busy central area. Beds comfortable.

Stayed 1 night in the Premier Inn near Barnwood Business Park in Gloucester. I had asked to be booked into the Holiday Inn but apparently that was full. Cant say there was much wrong with the hotel but it was just a standard low cost Premier Inn and there was no frills or anything fancy about it. Reception staff were fine at both check and checkout. Plenty parking available. Hotel was clean but basic. No restaurant or bar in the hotel but you can use the pub that it is annexed to. They were having a bit a Fawlty Towers evening when I was there - they didn't seem to know which tables were which number and people were being served the wrong food. I think this was just an unfortunate night for them as the staff, food and service were all fine - don't let my experience put you off - try it yourself. Breakfast is also served in the pub - I ordered some poached eggs which were cooked but the waitress forgot to serve them until I reminded her that I hadn't had them yet. They don't have tv's in the pub and I had to walk a short distance to a ten pin bowling centre to watch the Euro football. Nice enough place but noisy as you would expect. Had a couple of pints of Carlsberg which were an astonishingly cheap £1.87 each. You would pay double that in Scotland where I live. No other pubs etc within walking distance of the hotel so choice is very limited. I decided to walk to the Barnwood business park next day as I had time on my hands - thought I could get along by the main road - do not do this - there are no pavements, I ended up dragging my case through long thick grass and weeds - you can't walk on the roads as they are too busy and dangerous. There is some other way to walk there but I don't know what it is. Would I stay at the Premier Inn again - not unless I have to - much prefer the Holiday Inn.

Stayed one night in this hotel as a stop off during a long journey. Our check-in experience was superb. To be met by such a friendly face after 6 hours of sailing & driving is lovely, as all we wanted at that stage was to get to our room and have a quick sleep before dinner. We were checked-in within 5 minutes & received a lovely clean room. Although our room was on the side of the hotel nearest the motorway, there were no issues with noise or traffic as the windows had been properly sound-proofed. Car Parking in the hotel was plentiful & the 30mins free wi-fi was really handy. We ate dinner & breakfast in the pub attached to the hotel and were happy with what we received for both. The staff in the pub were very nice and helpful. They were run off their feet as the restaurant was very busy due to the Jubilee Celebrations. If I am back in Gloucester, I will stay in this hotel again.
