My partner and I have just returned from a 5 day break with Shearings, staying at The Prince of Wales Hotel, Berkeley. Having read some reviews before we went, I was a bit apprehensive, but didn't say anything to my partner. I must say I was pleasantly surprised, and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We couldn't fault any of the meals we had, and we found the portions were sufficient. A few people complained about the toast being cold. Well that suited me, as I prefer it like that, but I'm sure if they'd asked for some warm toast they would have been given it, as the staff were very accommodating, and friendly.. We thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment each night, especially Ian Lockyer, who was a brilliant musician. Our bedroom was nice and clean, with plenty of hot water, and we've never slept in more comfortable beds in a hotel before. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. I can't end this review without mentioning our coach driver, Alan, for the 5 days we were there. He was brilliant. On our way from Stretton to our hotel, instead of stopping at a Service station for lunch, he took us to Tewkesbury, where he let us have a 2 hour stay for lunch and a look round, and he was most informative when he took us on our included excursions. The hotel is situated on the roadside, and there isn't anywhere to go for a wander, but we had no need for this as we were out every day on an excursion. We would definitely stay here again.
