We stayed at The Wharf House for our anniversary weekend as neither of us know Gloucester very well and it seemed like a good destination. We also manged to find a good deal on the internet and so the room was half price.
Although the small hotel is very nice (clean, modern and comfortable) I would not have wanted to pay the normal full rate as it is some way out of the city centre and close to busy main roads. It also seemed that the prices in their restauarant were very pricey. We walked into the city in the evening along the river, which was nice but took about 45 minutes.
Our room was really lovely, with lots of nice touches and a view over the (murky brown) River Severn. The beds were comfortable and the hotel was quiet (the road traffic isn't really a problem).
The service was generally good, although breakfast left quite a lot to be desired. The waitress seemed a bit distant and kept forgetting things we asked for. I also had to ask for fruit juice and a refill of coffee - all things you would normally expect automatically. We weren't offered cereal and only got one piece of toast each. If the breakfast had been better it would have left a more favourable impression of the whole hotel.
Apart from that, The Wharf House is not too bad at all.
