Lydney itself is unremarkable but a gateway to the Forest of Dean and the gorgeous Wye valley. The motel makes an excellent base to explore both areas. Walks and cycle rides into the forest start right near the hotel and beautiful villages like brockweir and tintern are a short drive away. The rooms were lovely - very comfortable, quiet and...

We have booked for 7 nights. It was an excellent choice. The staff is very efficient on his work. Every day the room was clean and tidy and everything in order. We recommended to book at DeanGate Motel and you will not be disappointed. Sure we will visit another time.

Have stayed here twice now and each time was impressed with the size and cleanliness of the rooms. Very convenient for Clearwell Castle and Taurus Craft Centre. Just make sure you realise that checking in time is limited and that you need to inform the staff of your arrival. We booked through Booking.com and did not realise this, so inconvenienced...

What can I say? Excellent Hotel. Spotless,immaculate and very homely. Philip and Phyllis are lovely people,who will do everything to ensure your stay is a great one. We stayed for 2 nights and the rates are extremely reasonably priced. We were there for a family wedding at Clearwell Castle,which is only 5 miles away,so ideally located for all the local...

Clean and comfortable with a great location. 5 minute walk into Lydney centre but far enough away to be quiet. Would stay here again if business dictates. Reasonably priced as well. Tesco 2 minute walk

Stayed here for the full week last week and all was spot on clean fresh comfy beds... My only criticism is the free wifi is temperamental, as is most wifi. On the whole FANTASTIC!!! Friendly staff lovely rooms, decent size close to local shops and pubs, can't wait to go again!!!

We stayed at the Deangate Motel last week for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding at Clearwell Castle just a short drive away. We had a lovely stay and could not think of one single way that anything could have been improved - it was perfect. The people running it were extremely friendly and helpful when showing us...

We stayed here recently and found it to to be excellent value. The bed was so big - it must have been at least seven foot wide and the duvet was wonderfully warm. The rooms are quiet, clean and well appointed and the bathroom was also spotless with toiletries and plastic drinking cups. The staff were very friendly and helpful....

We were attending a wedding in Gloucester so chose this motel as it was close to the venue. I emailed the day before to ask if it was possible for an early check in so we could change our clothes after travelling before the ceremony. I received a prompt email to say yes and the room would be ready from...

This is the cleanest comfiest hotel/motel I have ever been in, the rooms are warm and inviting and the owners are very friendly. The beds are so comfortable I felt like never waking up, the shower is so clean I could stay in there for hours, I'm saying this especially because I am a person who hates staying in hotels...
