“It was an absolutely fabulous, spotlessely clean home from home apartment, in a really excellent location”
Reviewed February 10, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had two nights and three days in the apartment. We all wanted to stay longer, it was just like home, clean comfortable and above all the owners are very have thought of everything. The beds were really clean and comfortable, we all slept like logs. We wanted to spend more time in the apartment as it was very restful and decorated beautifully. The kitchen is really clean and well stocked, even down to the foil and cling film which was most useful. We had lots of lovely bathroom accessories too!

If you want to visit the lovely City of Gloucester, you could not stay in a better place, the location is superb. Just a few minutes one way takes you to the the town, with is beautiful Cathedral. The docks are really nice to explore and a few minutes walk across the them takes you to The Quays, a great shopping outlet. There is a great choice of restaurants, pubs and coffee houses right on your doorstep. Mike & Sharon have provided a really comprehensive book with all the information you need to help you enjoy your stay. They were excellent hosts and left a really great basket stocked with really nice goodies, even a bottle of wine!

We would recommend to the highest degree this apartment and cannot wait ourselves to visit again and stay longer next time.

“What a wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed January 20, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This is an apartment that is everything the TripAdvisor’s Reviews suggest it is, most definitely five star. The welcome from Michael was warm and informative as he helped us unload our car. The apartment has everything you need. Not just essentials such as milk, tea and biscuits but with cupboards stocked with those little things such as cling film foil kitchen towels etc. The apartment is warm and cosy even when below zero outside and is very well placed. Wi-Fi reception is very good.
Recommend a tour of Gloucester Cathedral and there are very knowledgeable guides whom will guide you around. It takes about an hour. A permit is needed if you wish to take photographs (£3).
We ate out twice, once at the Tall Ships, which we would highly recommend, and once at the Dr Fosters, which was very disappointing and I recommend avoiding.
But back to the apartment, really first rate and highly recommended by us both.

“Perfect base for our Christmas visit”
Reviewed December 27, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We used this apartment as a base while visiting family with a new baby at Christmas. Just perfect I would say. A very warm welcome from Micheal with a tour of the apartment stayed things really well. We had a very generous welcome pack and even a Christmas present! Everything is there for your stay from toiletries and washing up liquid to cling film and a pack of cards! Ideally situated to take advantage of the bars and restaurants around the old docks and a short walk to the city in one direction or The Quays outlet mall in the other. Good secure parking too. I am sure we will be back!

“Wow - loved it!”
Reviewed December 21, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We stumbled upon a real gem staying here. A true 'home from home' - which is warm and welcoming.
The apartment has everything you could need and is in an excellent location. The secure parking is also an added bonus.
As others have said, the owner Michael greeted us upon arrival and was thorough during the check in process ensuring all our questions were answered and offered tips on good places to eat and drink nearby.
We can't wait to stay again.
Big thanks to Michael and Sharon for really getting the holiday rental experience right! Top notch!

“Perfect Pad”
Reviewed December 14, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Just returned from a short two night break in Gloucester to visit family- after a delayed flight and a drive from Bristol in heavy traffic we were met by a very welcoming Michael. The apartment is a delight , spacious with views over the quays ,lovely bright decor added to by some Xmas decorations! A generous welcome basket was a lovely touch. Apartment is super location for the quays shops and restaurants also a short walk up to the Catherderal which is stunning - we arrived during a carol service which was lovely. We have stayed in Gloucester twice before but this is the best accommodation one will find. We are returning to the apartment in March for Cheltenham Festival - looking forward to it.

“Perfect location with great views of the quays”
Reviewed November 22, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We have just come home from a couple of days here to visit the Victorian Christmas market and to catch up with family and friends living in the area. this apartment was the perfect place for both. We were met by Michael in order to obtain the key fob to open the gate to secure private parking. This is a bonus in itself. as the local car parks were packed.Michael is a very friendly enthusiastic guy and showed us around. We had milk tea coffee wine chocolate etc which was very welcoming. Apartment is ideal, attractive decor and plenty of space. I hadn't realised that there was a dining table and chairs. The view of the barges and the Christmas market was mesmerising. Loads of good restaurants and managed to find somewhere to eat even though so any people were there.Loved it all. Have come on the internet look at availability to see when we can come back at a warmer time of year in 2016 and have a trip on the canal too.!!
Recommend to anyone of any age.

“Great location and accommodation”
Reviewed October 19, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We only stayed for a couple of nights on our way back home from a holiday in Poole. We received a warm personal welcome from Michael who showed us everything we needed to know and pointed out local eateries etc.
The apartment is on the edge of the city centre, only a short walk from the cathedral and very close to a shopping outlet. It is also close enough for people to explore the Cotswolds at their leisure. If you like shopping at independent shops then Broadway is a good start.
As our stay was so short and we were out and about we didn't really need to use the facilities on offer in the apartment but it appeared well equipped for a longer stay than ours.
The apartment makes good use of all the space on offer but the upstairs is slightly limited on headroom so any giants would need to take care. This is a very small point and made no difference at all to our enjoyment of the break. Having a separate downstairs toilet as well as an upstairs bathroom was very useful.
