“Lovely Easter Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We chose to stay at the Vale of Berkeley as we were visiting friends in the area. I chose the guesthouse based on reviews here and we weren't disappointed.

The owners were really friendly, couldn't do enough for us and had even left some chocolate for my daughter. Our family room was spotless, well decorated and spacious and had a brilliant power shower.

There was plenty of choice at breakfast time and my husband raved about the coffee.

We'll definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone.

Stayed March 2013, traveled with family

Thank you for your kind review, It was a pleasure having your family to stay this Easter, I'm glad your Daughter enjoyed the chocolate she is so cute and well behaved.
By the time you come back we hope to have our pony at home, so maybe she would like have a go at grooming it.

Kind Regards Harri & Claire

Stayed there for a night when going to a nearby wedding. Right from the moment we booked Harry and Claire were immensely helpful, suggesting local taxi companies and offering us a complimentary lift to the venue. Check in was easy, the room was clean and the bed comfortable, the shower was superb. The following morning the breakfast was very, very good indeed and throughout Harry and Claire were kind, professional and thoroughly charming. Delighted to recommend to anyone and if we are in the area we will definitely stay again. V.well priced and a real find.

This is a really friendly place to stay. Harry and Claire could not be more friendly and helpful. Could not fault it in any way. Breakfast is wonderful, cereal, full English, toast, coffee and fruit juice, everything we needed to keep us going whilst we bird watched at Slimbridge which is only 5 minutes away. Lots of good restaurants and pubs nearby to visit as well. Highly recommended!

Me and my other half stayed here for one night in October when attending a party at the Prince Of Wales over the road. I would highly recommend the guest house it was clean, lovely and very welcoming but also laid back. My other half wants an excuse to come back again and he is very fussy which is the highest honour any place we have stayed has been given! Very highly recommended and we would go back in a heartbeat :)

Delighted to recommend Vale of Berkeley Guest House. Working in the area last month and spent two days with Harry and Claire during a wet week in November. Great location, beautiful property with the most charming hosts I've met on the road in a long time. Was made to feel extremely welcome, great quality and value meals and if you're really lucky you'll hear Claire singing from the kitchen! No hesitation in recommending the Guest House to all potential visitors and I look forward to meeting up again in 2013! Many thanks

I have stayed at the guest house the last Friday, Saturday and Sunday in July since 2002 to attend 'The Internation Gypsy Guitar Festival' - Its a lovely place to stay, friendly, very clean, nice rooms, and a great breakfast.
The first week in January I book for the July weekend and they always make sure I have my favourite room.
A superb place to stay when you are looking for a comfortable few days away.
