“A little gem”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

It was a family visit so we only wanted to stop overnight but we will go back. Both rooms are immacculate. The top floor 'attic' room is very roomy and bright, with a large bathroom with bath. My mother had the lower floor room which had a shower (a large shower). The breakfast was excellent - cooked to order. As we weren't there to do any walking or anything I only had scrambled egg on toast but the scrambled egg was lovely. My partner had a full breakfast, and if you are there for the walking or other activity it will set you up nicely. Gillian is very welcoming and we would heartily recommend the B&B to anyone.
The Old Spot pub next door is also recommended - it's a proper pub with good ales, and a very good selection of malt whisky (unusual in a pub so far South).
The only drawback in Dursley is it's lack of eateries, unless you want Indian, and there was an Italian in the process of being fitted out whilst we were there. Although The Old Spot only does Monday Suppers, if you are after something else it's sister pub in Eastington (The Old Badger Inn) - about 10 minutes drive - does lovely food.

Room Tip: The attic room en-suite does only have a bath, no shower. It's a lovely bath - no complaints; it...

What a find! We happened on Underhill House after a couple of so-so nights walking the Cotswold Way. Jim was a very gracious host and even went next door to the Old Spot pub to book us a table for dinner. Side note: if you're lucky enough to be staying on a Monday night, do yourself a favour and dine at the Old Spot. It's the only night of the week they do dinner and it was superb.

We stayed in the double room on the top floor and it was divine. Large, quiet and private with a nice bathroom. We had a lovely breakfast and were given full access to the computer and phone to book the next night's accommodation in Little Sodbury.

We stayed at Underhill for one night in order to attend a family gathering in Dursley. There are two rooms available, both en suite and we had booked both. The room in the attic was large and airy and the bathroom had a fabulous, large bath, the other room was a bit smaller but nevertheless very comfortable had a nicely set out shower room.
The house is set out in a most beautiful walled garden.
Underhill is situated right next to a real ale pub - the Old Spot - we heard quite a bit of hubbub at night but only background chatter so not too disturbing - it is not a loud party pub.
Breakfast was tasty with lots of tea and coffee and top ups as required.
We enjoyed the stay sufficiently to book again for another family event in July - we would definitely recommend Underhill to others.

My husband and I were walking a section of the Cotswold Way, and decided to make Dursley one of our stops to stay for the night. Underhill House B&B is right on the Cotswold Way - it literally goes past the door, so very handy for walkers! It is only about a 2 minute walk from the main street of shops, and nextdoor to a pub serving local real ales & food (no, noise from the pub wasn't a distraction. It was a very quiet house).

The house has been tastefully restored by the owners, and we stayed in a lovely double room with ensuite bathroom (great shower!), that had a healthy tray of tea & coffee making facilities (Fairtrade,good quality individual coffee bags), and biscuits. We received a warm welcome and cup of tea on arrival, and Gillian Howard who runs the B&B was very hospitable. There is a nice guest sitting room with tv, and as we were the only ones in that night, we spent a cosy evening resting weary legs with a takeaway & tv!

The breakfast was lovely, served in a nice bright room - all the rooms have lovely original art work - and was essentially 'made to order'. The house is surrounded by pretty gardens, which are nice to look out on, and sit out in if the weather is good!

It is very reasonably priced (£60 per night for the room), especially for the quality of the B&B. I recommend it!
