“Good value accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Second time staying here as a family group. Accommodation very comfortable, reception staff very helpful when we wanted to rearrange ourselves amongst three rooms. Failure of credit card machine meant we had to pay in cash, thank goodness for Tesco 5 minutes away.

We stayed for one night whilst visiting local area and were delighted with The Deangate Motel. We chose it because of its excellent trip advisor ratings and were not disappointed. This is a great place to stay, from the welcome on reception to the lovely modern and well designed rooms. The extra bed that we had arranged for our daughter was setup and ready for her and there was plenty of room for us all. The extra touch of leaving a cup for her on the hospitality tray was appreciated and in many five star hotels they forget to do this. Very comfortable beds with good reading lights and we all woke rested after a good nights sleep. The lovely tiled bathroom is well thought out and modern, clean and with a great shower. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: All rooms well placed on courtyard with parking outside

My wife and I have just spent 2 nights at the Deangate and this one of the nicest places we have stayed in. Spotlessly clean, large airy room and bathroom, excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend and we would stay here again. A lovely touch from reception was leaving flowers in our room when they found out it was my wife's birthday ! 5 STAR !

This is a great place to stay - the whole motel has been very well designed and is similar to the style you find all over the US where you park your car outside the room. There is an overhang walkway and some seats for the smokers.

The design consideration extends to the rooms which are not too large and very well kitted out with quality fixtures and fittings - plenty of overnight storage space and a fully tiled bathroom with good shower.

The rooms are spotlessly clean and the staff we met were all very welcoming and friendly.

We had just stayed at the 5 star Celtic Manor Resort and the rooms here,were on a par in terms of comfort and quality.

We stayed here for 1 night. The rooms were very large and had all the facilities needed ( tea/ coffee, fridge, tv, good wardrobe space) The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfy. The fact that you can park right outside your room is a bonus. The staff were very friendly.

Just returned from a weekend stay with 2 other couples. We were thrilled with the quality of this motel. The rooms are spacious & spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed with comfortable beds & quality bed linen. Good hanging space & drawers, tea & coffee facilities, large powerful shower & plenty of clean fluffy towels. Great parking just outside the rooms. continental breakfast available for £5 per head or you can pop to Kaplan's cafe down Lydney High street for agreat selection of cooked breakfast. Staff are very welcoming. Great value at £64 per night for double occupancy.

Room Tip: Annex rooms are quiet & have parking outside the rooms.

We stayed at the DeanGate twice; at each end of our trip around Britain. We were so surprised by how luxurious it was! Spacious, quiet, comfortable and spotlessly clean, with parking right outside your door. It had everything we needed. The Cross Keys, a great local pub was only a few minutes walk away and served excellent home cooked meals. The centre of Lydney only a few minutes further on. You would be comfortable here for several nights while exploring this truly lovely area.
