My wife and stayed at a weekend. The hotel was easy to find with plenty of parking. Reception was quick. The rooms are comfortable, clean and there was plenty of hot water despite the hotel being full.

The staff were friendly. The wifi in the rooms was patchy and slow. We had a front road side room and didn't hear any traffic. Breakfast was very good - plenty of choice and it was well cooked. Prices are reasonable. If you are looking for a place to stay overnight - then I would recommend this hotel.

I have been to the Gables several times now, being the Secretary for Bristol's Gloucestershire Regimental Association. The evening went very well, apart from a disappointing meal this year.
The Vegetables were not cooked adequately for a good number of people. The rest was very nice. Hopefully the Management will take note, especially as our return trip next year is already in the pipeline ?.
I would still recommend the Gables, Mistakes can happen.

Room Tip: I have never had a bad room, obviously if there's music/dancing, then it's preferable to be...

This is our 4th visit to The Gables, but first review given. We arrived at the recommended check-in time and Donna, the duty Receptionist, was exceptional in the way she handled everything. Our room was on the ground floor as requested and very spacious, clean and welcoming. Shunning the refreshments in the room we quickly headed for the bar where we met up with old comrades and, lost in conversation, barely had time to change for our evening meal before we were back in the bar for pre-dinner drinks! The venue is ideal for medium sized reunions and the tables were set up perfectly. The staff were very polite and attentive throughout the evening and at breakfast the following morning. All in all the staff made the weekend a very pleasant reunion for us.

Room Tip: Although the hotel is beside a busy road we had the window open all night and slept very well. If at...

We needed somewhere to meet friends near to the M5. Instead of the motorway services we decided to try The Gables. So very pleased we did. It was 9.30 on a Saturday morning but the 4 of us were made extremely welcome! Nothing was too much trouble & the bacon sandwiches - wow! We are already looking to book a stay on our way to Devon in the summer.

Thank you very much for taking the time out to write a review and for the excellent five star rating that you have given us. We of course are delighted that your "chance encounter" was so pleasurable (and the bacon sandwiches were so good too). We have begun to establish a regular following who prefer to "get off the motorway" and enjoy our hospitality and it's nice to get such positive feedback.
Thanks once again and we hope to see you in the summer on the way to Devon and perhaps even on the way back too.

We stayed at the Gables for two nights as part of a large wedding party. The hotel staff were a pleasure to deal with from the booking stage right through to check out. Although check in was officially three o'clock on the day of the wedding at Berkeley Castle all rooms were ready from midday onwards. Our room was clean and a decent size but the one point drop in my rating is due to the uncomfortable bed (a regular discussion point between family members over breakfast). The restaurant accommodated twenty of us on a long table on the Friday night with no problem at all and the food standard was very good. The breakfast buffet was similarly of a very good standard. The bar was well appointed and served local real ales which was a bonus. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and it would be top of my list if we were to stay in the area again

Room Tip: We asked for a room at the rear of the hotel away from the main road. It was suitably quiet

Booked through booking .com. Very good rate. Hotel was easy to find. Pleasant and helpful staff. Bar area was good. Breakfast buffet style with a good choice of food. Will use this hotel again when in the Thornbury area. Good value for money.
