Could not fault the hotel, staff, room, comfort and area. Good hotel for being close to getting to towns and close to bus routes. Would definitely recommend this hotel for visitors

A wonderful hotel with fabulous, friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant team were outstanding! It is always lovely to find a hotel which not only caters for but really seems to welcome children. The room was very clean and comfortable. All in all, a great hotel with amenities for all the family.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KannH Enjoyed our stay, little fixes required
Good value for money, most staff helpful and efficient, let down by waiter at dinner who asked if we wanted anything and never came back with what we had asked for. Minor fixes needed in the room; tap in bathroom, cobwebs on windows, cracks in walls. Loved that there was free Wi Fi with rewards club membership, shame it was slow at times....maybe it was the distance from the hub or the amount of users?. Nice little park at the back for the kids, excellent pool/sauna/steam room. Dinner was tasty. Would go again at the price we paid.

After a long, slow journey along the M5 returning from Cornwall, we received a warm welcome and check in was quick and easy.
Room just as you'd expect, evening meal and breakfast excellent and the swimming pool / spa fantastic. This is the main reason for staying here and the kids loved it. Very child friendly and my youngest really enjoyed the colouring table set up near the main bar area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by claret1 Noisy and uncomfortable
Standard of our 'Executive' family room fell far short of expectations. Bed very uncomfortable. Poor noiseproofing in room so the noise from adjacent guests was extremely disturbing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The four of us Excellent Hotel with Excellent Staff
Great hotel to stay in whether visiting Gloucester or Cheltenham. Book without hesitation as the hotel, the staff and food are all excellent. We have stayed with many Holiday Inn's and this is by far the best in our opinion. We used to use this hotel for business in the past but we now also use for Leisure (when visiting family) as it offers everything (and more) we expect and need for a weekend away. Also very child friendly but done in a way that does not deter from those without children looking for a quiet break. Really liked the kids colouring table and the staff made our children's stay such an enjoyable one - alongside winning the sweets and the breakfast pancake machine! Well done Holiday Inn Gloucester - already booked again and will see you in October

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated! Booking
.I have made bookings in a huge number of hotels. However the booking at Holiday Inns has been by far the most problematic.
From a provisional booking of three rooms at the booking centre, which when amended and confirmed was not amended.
By being told to contact the Hotel direct by the Central Booking Site, to find the telephone was transferred to a line that was no longer active. Then speaking to someone who seemed offended that I had been transferred to her in error.
To speaking to the hotel who said they understood the problem, but received again the incorrect rooms.
To realising after I received my telephone bill of £10 that Holiday Inn use some sort of premium call rate.
To reverting to on-line contact, only to be told that they were not aware of what call rate Holiday Inn use from someone in Salt Lake City USA. Who could not tell me who I could contact to complain about the call rate.
To receive an email reminder about three days before my stay - relating to the booking of one room only, not the three! Yet again another email to ask if there are three rooms booked - only to get the automated reply stating Holiday Inn will get back to me within 5 days! Which is after my stay - not the greatest service standard? The only reason I stayed with the Holiday Inn is that there was a family function there, otherwise I would not have wasted any more time or money.
I have not included all the horrendous detail; suffice to say never Holiday Inn again.
The hotel however was ok' ish. Although the lady who booked me in spoke at the speed of a machine gun running through the usual introduction, which nobody in my party understood?

This is an attractive hotel and well appointment. It has a nice Bar/Lounge area. The Restaurant is light and airy and the Breakfast I had was find.
The Spirit leisure facilities are well maintained and clean and provide the opportunity for some exercise and relaxation.
Don't be put off by its location. There's plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas and because it's a business area during the day it's quiet at night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by omoroba A pleasant and enjoyable stay
My 8 day stay is so wonderful that I felt reluctant to leave at the end of my visit to Gloucester. All the objectives of a relaxing stay were achieved ----quiet,clean,food superb--especially the chicken gulash with spinach and rice with soft buttered naan bread.
The late opening of the bar serving food is an added convenience and comfort, and I did not miss my cup of decaff coffee with sweeteners while shaving daily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 good overall experience
overall was a pleasant 2 days stay
my only issue was the changing room following a swim was too cold temperature set
it would have been nicer if the room rate was a bit cheaper to include breakfast so we could have had BB basis rather than just bed and spent breakfast at local supermarket which disrupted our early morning

I stayed here the night before my wedding with my bridesmaids and also the night of my wedding with my Husband. It was great from start to finish. The staff are so kind and helpful and really can't do enough for you.
One staff member in particular was Chloe, who I had many dealings with when I booked, checked in and check out. She really was an absolute gem and really went above and beyond to assist with every request I asked.
Thank you Chloe and holiday inn for making my stay stress free and enjoyable. Will definitely be staying here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Freeguard1 Very friendly hotel
Possibly the friendliest of hotels I've stayed , the whole team were bright and cheerful and not at all patronizing as a number of hotels are these days, they were genuinely interested in their guests.
A pleasure to stay there and will certainly do so again.

Arrived 8pm. Not good. Disco on ground floor by reception for a "Prom".
Waited 3 minutes before someone came to the desk. No recognition of booking. Chaotic service in restaurant.
Bed-pillows, as usual were first class.
Pleased to leave at 6.40am after some toast.
Just one of those things I guess as this was not the normal experience from a IHG hotel.
Suspect the GM needs a wake up call.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AlarmMaster Good hotel close to motorway
Stayed for Business and then RIAT at Fairford. Excellent hotel close to road network but in a quiet location.
Room was everything expected of Holiday Inn, clean, well maintained and in good working order.
Internet worked well though not used for any serious processes such as viewing a video
Downside - short of 240v outlets, good job I carry an extension lead with me for my CPAP machine + the many other things that constantly need re charging.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Norman3 Mixed Time
Having stayed at Holiday Inns all over the UK, I was very surprised/shocked to find this two storey large complex has no lift to the upper floor.
Whilst the young lady receptionist did carry our hand luggage up the 20 plus stairs, I must say I was staggered that there is no other method of taking cases up to the upper floor, other than lugging them up the stairs.
I really felt for one man who had to carry a coach load of overseas visitors cases up.
I feel that the lack of lift when 50% of rooms are upstairs (no downstairs replacement room was available to us on our stay) should be mentioned on the website.
The fact that the fire alarm was set off at 5 past 4 am by some drunken young men, didn't help our stay. Which of course meant we all had to evacuate the building. Nor did the fact that it went off again at 6.40am am, though only for a short time but it meant that it was not a perfect Holiday Inn stay.
Though it had one good outcome - I now lay out my items when going to sleep in an order of importance to grab. So perhaps it was a wake up call of a learning type!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mog7 Great bolt hole for weary travellers
We stayed for 2 nights - husband, self and teenage son. The room wasn't huge, but big enough and comfortable. Loved the bed and son reckoned he was very comfy on the sofa and on the floor (he wriggles). Surprisingly little noise for this type of hotel, except for the air con, which was very effective, but also noisy.
Very nice pool area which we made good use of.
Star of the show - the really good restaurant - not cheap but far better food than normal in hotels of this type. Dinner and breakfast both excellent, with a really good choice for breakfast (son now wants a pancake maker)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Howlin Dog Not up to the usual high standard
A nice hotel with good facilities and a very nice breakfast. We chose to stay at the hotel instead of camping at a local music festival, thinking we would get a better night's sleep. However, our stay was marred by a technical defect on the fire alarm system resulting in 30 minutes spent in the car park at 4 am and sleep broken by a second alarm at 6 am. Guest management during the first,false, fire alarm was not well organised, arrangements to confirm all guests were safe did not appear robust, information flow was poor. Far from being the restful break we hoped for, we left tired and disappointed.

Lovely hotel, staff very friendly and efficient.
Restaurant likewise. Food good.
However, the main reason I booked this Hotel over others was their leisure facilities. But when I tried to book a massage I was told, 'sorry Sir they are on holiday'. ?????????????
This was not notified in advance to my knowledge. I would have not booked this hotel and paid more than their competitors prices.
