“Secret Escape”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

This is one of the most relaxed and comfortable stays I have ever had. It was very quiet, comfortable bed, spa is great and everything was well appointed and clean. Town and restaurants are very close and the whole place has that comfortable country feel. We have stayed twice now and thoroughly enjoyed it every time. Well done to all staff and owners.

My husband and I stayed for a week in a lovely unit. It was clean, spacious and well equipped - a home away from home. The spa was a relaxing addition. We were close to shops and cafes. The heating was very effective against the cold. Best of all, the king size bed was as comfortable as our own at home. We will be staying there again for another relaxing break.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by the Great Escape Lofts. They are located only a minutes walk to the main street cafes, shops, restaurants and pubs. The lofts are very clean and well maintained and there are lots of little extras that really make your stay very comfortable. The double spa is great and they give you extra linen for all the extra bathing you do when you have a spa. The little memorial park opposite the lofts was lovely to have an afternoon siesta. Value for money, you wont get better! We will absolutely stay here whenever we go to Gloucester.

We stayed here for two nights in May and were very impressed. Our room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. And it's only a two minute walk to town. We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Great Escape lofts for two nights recently and found it clean, spacious, modern and private. A great place to stay for the price and very comfortable, king size bed upstairs, good bathroom with spa, functional kitchen. Highly recommended
