Welcome and friendly as you would expect from a B&B. But in my experience B&Bs are normally run on an almost amateur hobbyist approach. This guest house is run on a very professional approach with a level of service you can only dream about in larger hotels. Premises modernised and very clean. Breakfast amazing. The icing on the cake is... More

Fantastic service, location and owners. Will definitely go back when in the area. We enjoyed breakfast immensely. Couldn't rate it enough. We stayed for a wedding being held at Kingscote Barn and it was a relatively short distance. The guest house suited our needs perfectly and has a lovely home away from home atmosphere.

Hi Kayleigh & Gareth, It was a pleasure having you both stay with us while you attended your friends wedding at Kingscote. Harri started reiniscing about his old electric blue Audi TT when you came to stay, I made him sell it as didn't fit our country lifestyle! Good luck with baby Aurora (Roman goddess of dawn) Maybe we will... More

Harri & Claire do everything to make sure your stay is as relaxed as it can be. Nothing is too much trouble. We only stayed for the weekend and had the smallest room but it was spotless, comfortable and ample for our needs. It is quiet and out of town but everything you might need is near to hand with...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Vale of Berkeley! Very welcoming people, always willing to go the extra mile for their guests. Amazing views and the breakfast was lovely. Would recommend to anyone - they also offer a free shuttle service from the local train station! Thank you Harry and Claire, we will be back! Rach and Dan.

Lovely people who are very helpful and friendly. Very welcoming. Have us a call the day before we arrived to sort check in and to arrange a lift to the wedding we were going to. Also was very very clean and the breakfast was even available for vegetarians!

I have travelled world and all of U.K. this had everything. Location good for Slimbridge /Berkely Castle (Which we had seen featured on a TV programme) and the Music Festival we were attending at Gossington. It is directly on the A38 so anybody from North going to Devon/Cornwall this is the perfect stopover. Nothing was too much trouble and a... More

I recently stayed at the Vale Of Berkley. It was one of the best guest houses I have stayed in. I had a dog with me that was very welcome and could stay with me in a downstairs room, with more than ample room for exercise. Claire and Harry were perfect hosts, the guesthouse was spotlessly clean and the food... More

The Guest House was very lovely and the Owners were very pleasant, they even gave us a free lift to the wedding! However, on arrival with my partner (both females) we were met in the car park by the Owner and the first question he asked us was ''Did you book a double room'' said in a rather confused manner....
