Nice house and surroundings, enjoyable walk to docks area and easy to get a taxi to town. We booked 2 rooms- a luxury and superior. One cost £12 more than the other, but there was little difference. The rooms were smallish but clean, apart from dusty bedside lamps. Pleasant view, enjoyable breakfast with good quality food, although we had to... More

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed our stunning location as much as we do, the views and walks really are lovely aren't they! I notice your comments on the Wi-Fi and I am very sorry about this. Unfortunately, we have had countless issues and as a result it has been very unreliable. We are in contact... More

We stayed one night at this hotel outside of Gloucester and had an evening meal here following attending a concert at the cathedral in town. The premises are owned by the Gloucestershire and Herefordshire Canal Trust and we were amazed to learn that all the building work was done by volunteers. The hotel and restaurant's takings contribute to the Trust's... More

Situated just off the A40, we found The Wharfhouse hard to find in the dark, we would suggest illuminated signage to rectify this. We had arrived after a three hour drive to meet friends, the first thing we were asked for were breakfast choices when all we wanted was to find a loo and change for dinner! The luxury king... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback on your recent stay at The Wharf House. Unfortunately, our signage is the maximum size the local authority would allow us to have.

A lovely stay at The Wharf House, brilliantly placed for visiting Gloucester, just a pleasant walk in. We really appreciated being able to get dinner even though we were very late checking in. Delicious white house wine! Very comfortable all round.

Didn't know this place existed. Only found it by accident on a last minute web site. A real gem. Peaceful haven close to Gloucester; comfortable, good food, friendly service. We ate in the restaurant, good food, reasonable choice and not that expensive.

This hotel is one of the best experiences that we have had. The setting is idiyllic, the rooms are so comfortable and the breakfast delicious. It is truly one of Gloucestershire hidden gems. The host was a source of interesting information regarding the history of the building and the surrounding area and it definitely calls for a return visit.

The setting is lovely and our room was delightful. Spotlessly clean and lovely little touches like fresh coffee and cafetiere. Was quite taken aback to have to choose what we wanted for breakfast the following morning when we checked in at 3pm! We ate in the restaurant that night and thought it was overpriced. No atmosphere - some background music... More

We visited Gloucester to explore the city & see the Severn Bore. After a little research we settled upon The Wharf House at Over for B&B. It is located on the river at its junction with the Hereford & Gloucester Canal, nice location and setting. We could see the river from the terrace and our room as well as being... More

Bought a voucher from Livingsocial for my husbands birthday and decided to stay for two nights. Room a bit quirky in a good way. Lovely sofa and bed very comfortable. Wardrobe was a little difficult to close but we managed. Bathroom and toiletries fab. Hope to return again.
