“its crisp now, new people got hold of it last month”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2009

this place was quite seriously the worst experience possible last year when i stayed, but it has changed hands and after a refit that must have cost hundreds of thousands of pounds the place and the people have changed beyond recognition. it is now clearly owner run and the care and attention i recieved is second to none. the locals that get in there are all nice and friendly, they serve bass beer straight from the barell, my favourite!! i have tried the other pubs in this village, but either the staff or and the decor have put me off returning. i can recommend this place if you want a safe place to take your family and friends for an evening out or a weekend away. we all had a great time, till next time thanks to all at the p.c. hotel inspector cluso.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2008

We stayed here because we were attending a wedding and everywhere else was full so the bride suggested this place. It's essentially a pub with 9 'rooms'

It was awful. Firstly the decor is dreadful, very dated with no charm. The bathroom was tiny and dirty and they'd wedged a double and a single bed into a double room - very cramped. All the furniture was very poor quality. They had not made the room up when we arrived.

They'd over-booked the place so some of our friends, who had checked their reservations the day before, had to look elsewhere.

The pub has a 2am license, when we came back at 12.15am, the music was blaring out so loudly, however, it wasn't busy, only the bar staff were around. We stayed up chatting to them, we were all a bit worse for wear! When I asked them to turn the music off at 1.30am they did but begrudgingly.

The shower was so weak and clogged with limescale it didn't do anything to cure our sensitive heads. My boyfriend and i thought of complaining which we would have done had we felt they would take any of our comments on board.

This place is by far the worst I've ever stayed in. I cannot think of 1 positive thing to say. I am a person who feels at home in a 1 star or 5 star establishment - I'm fairly low maintainance as long as the place is clean and the people are friendly - this is definitely lacking at the Portcullis Hotel.

It's a shame really, it could be a gold mine as it's right in the centre of Chipping Sodbury - a 'chocolate box' English Country village
