Stunning converted mill in Gloucestershire, very popular for weddings and it's Sunday Lunch.

Open to all - cyclists, ladies who lunch, kids, actors (I've spotted several here in the restaurant) business lunches.

Lovely staff, but beware of the bar prices - £3 for a large Pepsi or £2.50 for a lime and soda.

Stopped for one night on the way home. We were allocated a room in one of the adjoining buildings which was fine but was up three flights of stairs with no lift which is no fun with heavy luggage - no assistance with luggage was offered. The room was perfectly adequate but when will hotels learn that it is nice to have a shelf or similar in the bathroom for your toiletries?
Food in the somewhat rustic restaurant was good and no problems with the service.
Would stay there again but would be a bit fussier about which room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building.

The food was excellent. The service quite the opposite. Waitresss banged down the plate saying "there you go". We are from France, and although we do not expect "bon apetit' we do perhaps expect "enjoy your meal". One of the waiters stomped around in steel-tipped shoes on oak floors making a racket each time he passed. Above waitress left the dessert menu then went off to chat with the boys in the bar and never returned! After 15 minutes, called another waitress. Was a big birthday treat too, marred by awful service. Pity.

We stayed over the Bank Holiday weekend. Our fifth visit over the last ten years. We stayed in room 28 this time, not the most spacious room but more than adequate. We did have a problem with the pipes "banging" on the first night. When I reported it to the reception I was offered a change of room straight away !. I declined as it did not seem worth the hassle to move, As it turned out it was fine the next night. The staff we found to be excellent in all ways. The Sunday lunch was amazing......again !. Breakfast was once again first class with plenty to choose from, and once again excellent service. The location is all you need for a relaxing break. We will be back !!.

I was here to attend a wedding at the hotel and stayed for one night.

The hotel is very picturesque and in a lovely location, a short walk from Nailsworth and also a pleasant walk / ride along a National cycle route to Stroud.

Our room was large and very usefully had separate shower room and toilet. I was impressed with the large mirrors with nearby power points so I could actually see to do my hair for a change (so few hotels think of this). The bed was very comfortable.

In fact the only problem with this particular room was it's very close proximity to the main road which has a surprising amount of traffic in the night.

The Wedding was lovely and I think the hotel did everything very well. It makes a lovely venue especially if you are lucky enough to have nice weather so that guests can spend some time in the grounds.

Breakfast was very generous indeed and efficiently served.

We spent some of the next day in and around Nailsworth and then came back to the hotel for our roast lunch. To be fair we were all still pretty full from breakfast so it was hard to do it all justice! Most of the food was excellent, although some of the meat was rather fatty. Service was cheerful and efficient.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far from the road as possible.

This is a converted mill with an easy walk into town which has a number of pubs and places to eat. The rooms are very nice and well laid out. Very nice bathroom and a real home from home. We were attending a party and stayed the night but we plan to stay for a long weekend soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 16 century Mill next to the main mill.
