We were looking for a good base to tour around the Cotswolds and after searching for a B&B it was apparent that these are somewhat overpriced in this area (£80 plus for a double room).
I stumbled across the Purple Hotel via Laterooms.com and booked direct to get 4 nights B&B for £47 a night (normal rate is £47 room only, but this was a summer special), which seemed very reasonable for a bank holiday weekend.
This hotel used to be the Sleep Inn, Tewkesbury and looking at the Tripadvisor page it would seem to be best avoided. However, it would appear the new owners have turned the place around and it has been well refurbished.
The bedrooms are clean with pleasing enough decor and the general impression of the hotel is good. We were specially impressed by the general quietness of the place (not something roadside motels/hotels are normally known for). Breakfast was a buffet with a very good range of regularly replenished items and the staff were friendly and efficient.
We had one issue with our room not being cleaned on our first morning and after mentioning this at reception we were invited to take a free drink in the bar.
Overall, I would highly recommend this place. The location is good for touring the area and it is excellent value for money.
