We booked this hotel for two nights and ended up having trouble sleeping both of them. The hotel wraps around a courtyard with a restaurant and bar, an area which was loud even in our 2nd floor room. The night we arrived, there was a concert going on in that courtyard, information that might have made us reconsider our selection of the hotel. The second night, there was karaoke or something that involved loud music, which was perhaps worse than the concert. There also seems to be gang of seagulls in the area because they did not stop squawking for one minute all night--this is not the fault of the hotel, but it is certainly something to know when planning a trip to Gloucester. Our other issue with the room was with the temperature. The noise might not have been quite as loud if we had closed the window, but that was simply impossible because it was so hot and stuffy. It was two long, sleepless nights. I understand that A/C may not be possible in such an old building, but even putting a portable fan in the room would have been a huge help. Apart from these problems, the inn itself was kind of a neat atmosphere, with a Tudor-style building (supposedly the oldest inn in England) and a filling English-breakfast buffet. It also had a good location, within walking distance of the bus station, train station, and Gloucester Cathedral.
