We stayed two nights. I have minor mobility problems and really struggled with the two tight spiral staircases. No handrail and a bit scary. Shudder to think what would have happened in a fire as we didn't see any fire precautions. The room is lovely but a TV would be good. The room wasn't clean and the shower area had... More

I am so sorry the guest found the shower grubby, it has some mould where the grout is which we have scheduled for renewing. I am sorry the guests were not warned, as the website does clearly explain, that there is no TV and the property is very old, grade 2 listed and not suitable for those with mobility problems. More

Stayed for 3 nights in March as a base to launch myself at the Cheltenham Festival bookies. OK, the establishment isn't the Ritz, the room was clean and the single bed incredibly comfy. It did appear I was staying in what used to be one of Caroline's son's room but so what, it did the job. The shower took a... More

2 nights in Stroud. Check out my full review at Hotels.com. Family home used as B&B. Occupied one of the son's bedrooms. Very clean. Quite surprised no TV available. House is a tad untidy but I was welcomed in like a family member. Will stay there again.

Friendly, welcoming, charmingly quirky. The spiral stairs are not easy - I needed two arms to hold the walls as I went down as i felt a tad insecure - but luggage was carried by the owner, so not a problem. Bed comfortable, decoration and ornaments eclectic, en-suite shower rather tired but plenty of hot water. Breakfast just what I... More

I was welcomed by an envelope addressed to myself and which contained a front door key and a note from Mrs Denny giving directions to my room and inviting me to phone her friend (Jane) re breakfast etc as she was away. The room was up two flights of winding stairs, one wooden and the other stone and not carpeted,... More

Mrs Denny and Biscuit (the dog!) greeted my wife and I like family. And this is what it's like - staying with your friendly relatives who know all about the area adn want you to have a good time. The owner is well-known in Stroud and knows all the ins and outs of the arty town. A nice garden, a... More

Caroline Denny welcomed me like an old friend to her wonderful 17th century famlly home with its amazing spiral staircases, ancient oak beams, warm paintwork and comfy beds. She couldn't have been more helpful, finding me a safe parking place, sorting out wifi and so on. Sadly I could only stay one night, as I had to go home, but... More

The place is jumbly, but you're part of a family home and whose isn't a bit jumbly? The hostess was very welcoming and helpful with local knowledge, and making our way up the spiral stairs in what's a very old house was intriguing - the room we had on the top floor had an ancient old and characterful beam across...

If you want an anodyne experience this will not be your sort of place. It is a remarkable old house with very difficult spiral stairs. My husband is 82 and had no trouble with them at all, neither did our small grandchildren. The owner insisted on carrying our suitcases up and down for us. It is indeed a family home... More

We TOTALLY agree with the two previous reviewers. We had already driven 21/2 hours from Cornwall but chose to drive another 3 hours home and cut short our holiday rather than stay here with our three children (and we had already paid in advance). The owner has self assessed herself as a three star but this is IN NO WAY... More

This review is totally unjustified and untrue. The guest booked 2 rooms for a Saturday night. On arrival they complained the rooms were not next to each other and demand a refund. I refused as they had not enquired if that was the case. If that it what they want a Travel Lodge would seem more appropriate. So they'd left... More
