This Hotel is sited perfectly in the centre of Gloucester, and as described by previous posts is a very old building. Therefore you should be prepared to put up with some of the quirks that the building throws at you.
What lets it down is the poor attention to detail in the rooms. In the wardrobe were broken coat hangers, shoe boxes and the top was very dusty. The carpet was quite stained and the bath panel was broken with a big split along it. The worst thing was the dirty toilet brush, please, please cleaner clean the brush after you have cleaned toilet
The breakfast was ok but it consisted of scrambled egg. To be fair another guest asked for other type,and it was provided so it would have been good to put a sign on the desk saying it was available.
The staff were all friendly and helpful and the prices for the drinks were good.
Would I stay here again, on balance I would and would happily recommend it to my friends. But this hotel must learn to start looking at the little things and not to let it get any worse.

First off, the choices for an overall rating are inadequate in this case.
There is no "It's a complete shambles but we pray the new management will rescue it."
For potential true historic charm, it cannot be bested.
For actual experience, it was appalling.
However, we arrived at exactly the same time as the new management team and Marion and Michael, while they have an Herculean task before them, seem more than able for the challenge.
The room was filthy. The linen was ripped. The room not serviced for two days. The food proved inedible. The noise from the bar was impossible.
But, when Marion and Michael were informed, they themselves cleaned our room when not interviewing new staff.
I hope to hear that a miracle has happened and The New Inn turns over a new leaf. I wish Marion and Michael all the very best.

Room Tip: Before you book, make sure that improvements have been made. If the new team can bring this treasure back to glory, you are in for a great treat.

Thank you for your very balanced comments - more than can be said for some reviewers. You are right - we do have a mammoth task on our hands but will put everything right in due course. I do hope people realise that when there has been neglect for several years the new management cannot remedy everything overnight. Hope to see you again if you visit the UK

We have been to the New Inn many times in the past but just to the pub part. The pub always has good beers although the games machines bring the tone down somewhat. The musical evening are generally very good. We were staying the night for the first time this weekend whilst attending the local beer festival. The building itself is Grade I listed and is superb in the courtyard area. A lot of work seems to have been put in on the woodwork. Unfortunately the room we had was very tired and needed some work. The bed, whilst comfortable, had crumpled sheets and cover and it could have done with a bed skirt to hide the ugly bed base. The area around the main light fitting had cracked plaster and looked as though it had leaked in the past. There was an old envelope by the side of the desk with a post mark of January so presumably had been there for 2 months being missed by the cleaners. The view wasn't great but our fault for not specifying perhaps. The bathroom was actually quite a high spec and seemed to have been done recently. I don't know why some previous reviews had complained of squeaky floorboards and uneven floors. What do you expect? The breakfast was pretty basic with very cheap ingredients. Rarely have I had such a poor sausage. I think it has a lot of potential but it is a big place and needs more staff and money spent on it in my view.

Room Tip: See if you can view the different rooms online before booking.

The New Inn is the last galleried inn in England, a survival from the fifteenth century. Shakespeare allegedly performed in the courtyard. Lady Jane Grey was proclaimed Queen there,

Architecturally it's wonderful. But as a place to stay the night and/or eat it is abysmal. Of course there are outside steps to your bedroom, so you have to ascend in the rain. Every floorboard creaks. All the floors are uneven - disconcerting in your bedroom.

All that goes with the territory and would be wonderfully atmospheric if other things worked, They do not. Arriving in your bedroom, you find that two of the light bulbs are missing. There are no towels. The TLC you receive in a family-owned B&B is completely missing. The food is ghastly. Breakfast of the worst sort of chain hotel breakfasts.

Do look round the New Inn (if necessary having a drink). It is an absolutely wonderful historical survival. But do not stay or eat there.

Room Tip: To choose a good room, go somewhere else.

I'll be honest, after reading some previous reviews, we were expecting the worst, this is why we booked it really. We were expecting the full Basil Faulty treatment, warts and all. So we could have a good laugh and report back to our friends with some horror stories....We didn't get it.

What we got instead was a lovely warm room with 2 very comfy single beds, with crisp, clean sheets, nice pillows and a good quality duvet. Oldy worldy black oak beams, wonking floors a proper crocked house, what you would expect of a 700 year old building. Hot water was in abundance and we didn't really hear much noise at all and we stayed Friday/Saturday.

We thought, well at least we will have to suffer the breakfast, but once again, it was lovely, nice and hot and plenty of it, buffet style, with proper coffee, juice, yogurt, fruit ,plus full English with fresh toast and butter, yummy.

If you want mod cons etc, There are some new hotels on the industrial estates out of town. If you want Traditional olde world charm in the town centre then this is for you.

Will deffinatley be going back. It's worth parking in Bruton Way Multi Story as the hotel gives you a very generous discount ticket. £7 for 2 days parking should have been about £22 on the meter. % minute walk to The New Inn
