“Excellent. Absolutely faultless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have stayed at Room with a View twice and each time the experience has been wonderful. Sue and Jim's attention to detail and their excellent service is to be admired. Sue is attentive but not intrusive. Her Sir Lankan dinners are to die for!

Gloucester is a lovely town and Room with a View complements it very well.

Check out their website for more detail.

I can recommend it without hesitation! (and I don't say that often!)

This was a perfect place to stay when exploring the nearby barrington tops. The house was gorgeous and we had a very generous sized space to relax in, including a lovely porch where we had our meals. Sue was the perfect host and a fantastic cook. She was always on the lookout for ways to make us more comfortable.

This place is absolutely lovely in every respect - we stayed in the smaller Aliya room, which was great for the two of us. It's tastefully furnished, the bed was soooo comfortable and we spent a lot of time on the front porch reading and enjoying the quiet surroundings.
Sue had lot of great advice for our outings to Barrington Tops and on where to eat out.
The breakfast was absolutely delicious - good thing we stayed for three nights, so we had the chance to sample several things on the menu. And dinner - Sri Lankan curry was amazing and was only topped by the mango kulfi... we'll definitely be back!!!

I should have reviewed "Room with a View" a while ago, after my husband and i stayed there the first time. But we came back for a 2nd stay, as we enjoyed the first one so much. Soooooo welcoming and comfortable, we just love staying with Sue and Jim. We have a very comfortable room, with our own sitting room and large bathroom with double shower and separate bath. Breakfast is a dream, sitting on the deck of the house, enjoying great coffee and chatting with Sue about everything from charity dinners to seeing a platypus. Very clean, very neat, very happy!!! We will go back as many times as possible. Everyone should visit "Room with a View". I'm very picky about where I stay, but have been always so relaxed and comfortable so far, and am sure I will be again.

Dear Tavs,
It is always wonderful to hear someone say 'we stayed with you (before)' and would like ot return. One of the many pleasures of the hospitality business. Jim and I were thrilled to see you and your husband again recently, and we also enjoyed catching up on all those things which had happened since your last visit. Thank you very much for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor ... and best wishes to you both for a wonderful Christmas Season.

I have stayed twice at this B & B. Sue first and foremost is a great host. Kind, friendly and accommodating. Her Sri Lankan curries are very tasty, last night's white cauliflower curry was amazing. Her kulfi ice cream was beautiful, maybe not for my waistline. My bed was comfortable and warm, the house is warm and inviting and a lovely place to stay when I have been working in the local area taking photos. I will have the great pleasure of staying here in a few weeks again.

I opted to have dinner with Sue and her husband Jim, this is the second time and it was another nice dining experience.

If you want a B & B with some character, charm, good food and a nice host this is the place.

Dear Simon,

It was great to see you again while undertaking another project in Gloucester - Jim and I enjoyed our evening with you very much.
Thank you so much for including some photographs of the Sri Lankan meal with your review - I don't think you stand still long enough for the kulfi to have any negative affect.
We look forward to seeing you again when next you visit our beautiful town. Kind regards, Sue and Jim - A Room with a View, Gloucester

We stayed one night and can't wait to go back. The ultra modern suite with a king size bed was so relaxing and superbly appointed and decorated complete with internet and flat screen TV and DVD. It was also extremely warm and comfortable. We had a 3 star Michelin meal with Sue and the comforts of the home. I would favourably compare this with Le Manoir in Oxford. Well done and many thanks.
