This hotel is now part of a third chain in four years. Firstly Sleep Inn, then Purple and now Travelodge. Got a very good room offer at £35. Nearly didnot stay as my room had been given to another guest of same surname but different initial, address and sex!! However sorted out by very helpful Manageress. Good room way above... More

arrival was ok seemed friendly. evening meal menu very limited. the hotel was quite deserted but thought this may have been down to the snow. The gentleman that served us drinks in the evening had hurt his back so did not want to ask for to much. The room was ok quite basic power shower was great. Breakfast was a... More

This hotel was ideal. Comfortable room, clean, good shower, TV, kettle. Breakfast is buffet style and there is plenty of choice. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The location is good, just of the motorway, about 1.5 miles from the centre of Tewkesbury and only 20 mins in a taxi to Cheltenham racecourse.

We arrived as a family of 4 and were given a room where the heating was not working. On mentioning this to staff, they not only fixed the problem, but offered us another room which was already warm as ours was going to be quite cold for a while. Bed was a bit hard and breakfast was average, but great... More

I'd looked at booking the Purple Hotel before as we have friends in Gloucester and when we visit we don't always fancy driving all the way back. The hotel itself is just off junction 9 of the M5 in the middle of an industrial estate. Don't let this put you off!!. We got the weekend rate of £39 for the... More

Have just spent 2 days at the Purple Hotel and it was a good base to visit the cotswold villages. Room was clean and presentable and particularly liked the size of the shower cubicle. Breakfast was absolutely fine although didn't like the look of the scrambled egg which was pre-cooked. We paid £50 per room including breakfast per night through... More

We stayed at the Purple Hotel on the night of my daughters wedding 13/09/08. We booked quite a time in advance to make sure we had a room and paid £55 for a double. We had no problems booking in, and were allocated room 008 on the ground floor close to reception. The room was very spacious and clean, with... More

this is a new hotel and everything is in excellent condition,the bed was really comfortable and the bathroom spotless. It is situated just off the motorway but within walking distance of the town. The room was air conditioned, which was good as there was some traffic noise when opening the window. The evening menu was limited so we ate in... More

We were looking for a good base to tour around the Cotswolds and after searching for a B&B it was apparent that these are somewhat overpriced in this area (£80 plus for a double room). I stumbled across the Purple Hotel via Laterooms.com and booked direct to get 4 nights B&B for £47 a night (normal rate is £47 room... More
