In Gloucester overnight to visit friends. Central position, we unloaded the car outside, booked in and found our room easily. We then parked the car immediately behind the hotel with a reduced price parking voucher. £3.00 for 24 hours. Our ensuite budget room was small, clean with a comfortable bed. Bathroom was fine with wonderful power shower, toiletries and soft... More

Room was clean and had most of the expected facilities but unbearably hot. No air-conditioning though the hotel did supply a fan (and a 2nd one when I asked) but didn't really help. No hotel information in the room so was unaware of meal times, wifi etc. Staff were pleasant enough but I left my phone charger in the room... More

We only stayed over here for 2 nights but must say it was good value. Although we checked in at the early hours of the morning the night porter was helpful and answered any questions we had and swiftly checked us in, we were still able get a quick drink as we were informed the bar was 24hrs to residents....

Having booked online via Late Rooms I read some reviews here and called the hotel to try and ensure we would not have a similarly negative experience to some other guests. I asked for a room in the quietest part of the hotel possible and was assured that wish would be granted. When we got to the hotel there was... More

We stayed here on a Thursday and Friday night - one night on business plus with an extra night to look around Gloucester itself. We had a room at the back of the hotel which was good because we understand on a Friday night it can be quite noisy out front. The best thing about the hotel is the central... More

On booking I asked for a "Quiet" room, so I was surprised that I was allocated a first floor room above the bar, and at the front of the hotel overlooking the 'high street'. Wi-Fi internet access wasn't possible in my room, so I asked to be given another room. The new room was nicely decorated (as was the first),... More

We checked into the New County Hotel, Gloucester, on a return trip to Surrey after a lovely holiday week away in Wales. It was a warm Saturday summer evening and this is a busy City Centre hotel with lots of casual bar business. The room was great. Clean and tidy with modern decor. We were pleased with our booking at... More

Dear Guest I think it would be beneficial for other reviewers if I was to remind you of what actually did happen. You spoke to our duty manager on shift but you continually demanded to speak to the General Manager. You where given my contact details but still insisted that this was not acceptable and you wanted to speak to... More

On the whole this hotel has been enjoyable with very pleasant and helpful staff. It's centrally located and easy to get to major sites.The amount of stairs to get to rooms and twisty hallways was a little disconcerting.When I moved to another room on the second night, it was much easier. Beds could use better mattresses though and walls are... More

We stayed here with a group of friends. I was a little apprehensive after reading the reviewer describing their stay as "scary". Our experience was very different. We found the staff welcoming both on reception and at the bar. The rooms were clean and comfortable. My room was at the rear of the hotel and was very quiet. The hotel... More

We stayed on a Saturday night to break up our journey home and look around the City over the weekend. The Hotel and Room were clean and well presented. We had a quiet Room at the back, Rooms at the front overlooking a main shopping street may be noisier. Breakfast was a pleasant experience. The discounted car parking arrangements were... More
