“Another perfect stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012

This was my second visit to the Tudor Arms, the first time was back in the February half term which was faultless and this visit was just as brilliant. I rang at very short notice on a Friday afternoon and they were able to 'squeeze' us in that night. I say 'squeeze' there was no squeezing about it as their rooms are THAT generous. I had hoped to have the family room as I have previously stayed in one of them and they are huge and luxurious, but there were none available so we had a double with a single sofa bed and they squeezed in another 'put you up' bed as we were a party of 2 adults and 2 children and the Double room only sleeps 3. The rooms are luxurious and are very well equipped. The bathrooms are beautiful and the showers are brilliant.

The staff are excellent and nothing is too much trouble. We had supper that evening which was delicious home cooked food, especially the Treacle Tart! And breakfast was excellent too!

If I had to give a negative it would only be that neither my husband or I could connect to the free Wifi, which in the grand scheme of things is a minor detail!

I cannot rate this place high enough, a real gem in the beautiful countryside of Slimbridge!

Thanks again Tudor Arms!

We have stayed here a number of times for a two night break. It really is a gem. Very comfortable, clean and spacious rooms. Very friendly staff. Attached to a first rate pub with good choice of beers. The breakfast is especially good and individually cooked making a pleasant change from dried out buffett style breakfasts. A stay here is very good value and much better than some much more expensive accommodation.

We stayed two nights at the Tudor Arms whilst visiting the nearby bird reserve. It's a lovely inn in beautiful surroundings, lots of nice walks and of course the Slimbridge wetlands. The room was lovely, although those with a bad back like me will find a soft bed is not good for them! One minor niggle was I couldn't hook up with the Wifi for some reason. Excellent good value meals at the Inn and a great breakfast included.

We stayed here for three nights with our two children age four and one. We had specifically requested the flat as we thought this would be more spacious. A few days before we were due to arrive they phoned to make sure we were happy with this, which we thought was lovely attention to detail.

The flat is actually in a separate block over the road, which was fine for us. The accommodation comprised a living area, two bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen that included a washing machine and small bathroom. The bath was half size which our four-year-old found hilarious. There was a separate shower cubicle too. The flat was cleaned daily with coffee etc. topped up. The only issue we had was that none of the three televisions worked. We reported the problem and it was resolved the next day.

The location is just beautiful, and we took full advantage of being within walking distance of Slimbridge WWT.

We had a lovely break here, and would definitely consider returning.

had our third stay at the tudor this august and like before we experienced the same scenario.the rooms here are great, large comfortable and great ensuite. breakfast one of the best you will have. unfortunately apart from ben the staff have not got a clue, when booking in on arrival you will be in a queue of diners waiting to be served. 20 minutes we waited this time!!! the food at night is not great and you have to wait some time. also you cannot tell who are staff from a customer. we think that this hotel could be great with just a few minor alterations.

Room Tip: all rooms are good

What a lovely room. Wonderful furnishings. Clean. Nice seating area. I could go on and on. Oh - except why was there only one pair of slippers in the room when there were two people staying?
The breakfast was slightly disappointing. We had lovely filtered coffee with the evening meal but had to put up with stewed machine coffee at breakfast. My pet hate -microwaved scrambled eggs. However the fresh fruit salad was actually fresh instead of the usual tinned variety. The best I've had in a hotel. The service was variable - the younger staff were lovely the older staff slightly less cheerful. Overall, a very good place to stay.

Couple, early sixties, stayed for one night B&B. Friendly welcome on arrival. Good, large room with good quality furnishings and spacious bathroom. Really soft bed - a bit too soft for me - but very comfortable. Ate in restaurant for evening meal - good quality food and value for money too. Good crowd and good atmosphere in the bar from people from local camp site and boat moorings. Breakfast cooked to order and so it was both hot and nourishing - also a good range of cereals and fruit and beverages. great place to stay for one, or even a few nights.
