The first thing I noticed about the Deangate Motel was the sign in the photo has lost its 'e' and 'a'. This is never a good sign, as it shows a lack of maintenance and an unwillingness to spend money keeping a place up to standard. That being said, the rooms were fine, and the proprietor was friendly and welcoming.... More

Hotel was fine for a overnight stay. We stayed in the economy room, which was a good price. The room was clean and fresh. For one night it was fine. The only problems we had where the room had not lock on the door when you left it, also when you open the door it opens directly into the hall... More

Stayed here 1 night. It was a very friendly place and nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Room was really clean as was the bedding and towels. Would definitely stay here again. Lydney itself is a lovely market type town and there are lots of attractions within easy reach from this motel

I booked a single room at this Motel through Expedia on March 28th for a three night stay from April 13-16th 2016. I read on the web site that my card details were taken to confirm the room, and that no money would be taken at time of booking....so I was surprised to see that full payment of £117 had... More

So, arrived on Monday and a young girl on reception appeared to be quite new as wasn't entirely sure of process. Nice enough. Gave me key but didn't give me any info, not even about check out or breakfast which is supposed to be available at an extra price. Went to room - tidy and clean no problem. Couldn't get... More

I arrived to be greeted by a gentleman with a laptop and he just gave me my room key, didn't offer breakfast and was already serving another customer. He just stopped... More

Do not be fooled by the bland exterior, our room was large, clean and comfortable. Not a huge choice of places to stay in Lydney and this was recommended by the local friends we were visiting. Having stayed the previous night at the 4* Billesley Manor Hotel we were expecting to be roughing it in a traditional motel. Okay, the... More
