Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by timbo1959 would stay again
Arrived late on Friday night and eat at 9.30pm. Restaurant was ok but a little soulless. Starters very average but mains and pudding were better. Drinks good value. Restaurant staff very obliging and smiled.
Reception staff both check-in and check-out were fine and helpful.
Gym was good, didn't use the pool
Breakfast very good, fresh fruit was fresh. Bacon wasn't and hash browns good have been crispier.
All in all 8 out of 10

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ali76 Fantastic 2nd stay.
My husband and I have just had our 2nd stay at this lovely hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and clean and the breakfast is amazing, especially the freshly made pancakes.
The hotel is very convenient if you are travelling north or south on the M5 and a very enjoyable stop over on a long journey that we always try to get to as early as possible so that we can enjoy the facilities.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Joemac10 Why is wifi extra?
Really good stay and excellent staff attitude but experience marred by the fact this hotel regards business guests use of wifi as a way to make money. When wifi is inclusive of room rate, I might start staying here regularly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Oakesy11 Average, no atmosphere, good dinner, poor breakfast
I stayed here for 1 night after driving 156 miles from home, in preparation for a business meeting the following day. I booked a room package that included dinner and breakfast.
The food at dinner was very good, although the restaurant and bar areas lacked atmosphere.
I was very surprised to get presented with a bill for dinner, as my package was supposed to include dinner. It wasn't explained to me before the meal that only certain items on the menu were included within the package. This was later resolved at check-out the following morning, when I was refunded the additional meal cost, and received an apology that they hadn't explained what was and wasn't included within the meal package.
The room was comfortable enough, although average, as was the general hallways and interior of the hotel. I was disappointed that they charge extra for wifi access, bearing in mind how much their room tariffs are. This is somewhat tight-fisted, as most reputable places these days, provide wifi access free of charge.
I then was extremely disappointed with the quality of the food at breakfast...it was awful. I opted for the cooked breakfast, which was a help-yourself buffet style. Although the bacon and beans were ok, the scrambled eggs didn't taste like eggs. They tasted like they'd been made with instant powder. The black pudding was soft, too thick, and tasteless, and the hash browns tasted stale. For drinks, the tea was very poor, and had no taste. Would I stay here again? For what it cost, no!

Our stay for three nights was very satisfactory.
Our double room was very small , we found that the towel supply was restricted to only two large and one small!!
We had a room service meal which was OK.
The bathroom was OK, the shower worked very well.
There was ample wardrobe space.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrslt great value for money.
Stayed one night with husband and 2 yr old son. Room was lovely, large enough for a king size bed, sofa bed and a travel cot. Bathroom was large. Everything was immaculate. Bed was comfy and breakfast was very nice. Only drawback was that there was a wedding on that night. Our room was on the ground floor and children from the wedding do were running backwards and forwards and were quite noisy. This lasted until about 10/10.30 so wasn't extremely late, it was just that we had been to longleat all day and then travelled to the hotel, so we were looking forward to an early night! Would definitely stay again though.

Arrived and our room wasn't ready so manager Ali offered a complementary tea/coffee at bar and apologised. He then came over to,say computer was wrong and room was ready but insisted we had our drink. Good bar service, spotless clean, good room, quiet location. Pool facilities were excellent and overall our stay was very good. Would recommend good value for money, would return. Our,first visit to holiday inns but would consider again.

We stayed in a family room here for two nights...rooms are very spacious..comfy beds very clean and the air conditioning was bliss as it was hot outside..we had nothing in our mini fridge when we arrived but after a call to the front desk it was soon rectified.Friendly staff and the swimming pool was a god send for our 14yr old boy...at least you wont go stir crazy in your room!They also have a jacuzzi and sauna rooms too plus a gym if you are feeling energetic!Would recommend it here...I don't think you will be disappointed.

Very pleased with the room and all the extras ie fridge. As I had my 3 yr old grandson with me this helped to keep his drinks cool. Another plus was the air con. Very useful in the warm day and night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kerry28 Lovely weekend had by all
We visited family near Gloucester last weekend, and booked the Holiday Inn as we knew we would be well looked after having stayed once before. The hotel itself is very clean, rooms are comfortable and also very clean and the staff could not be more accommodating. We also enjoyed an excellent breakfast. The Spa facilities are excellent and was just what we all needed to make the weekend a very relaxing one. We would most definitely recommend this hotel and give it 10 out of 10.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Janet7 Relaxing break
Stayed here on our way back from a short break in Eastbourne. Staff friendly and couteous and our room was excellent with complimentary bathrobes, water and chocolate. Very roomy. Excellent value.
We had a nice meal in restaurant on first evening although we were rather taken aback by the price of tea £3.10 each for a mug (large).
A map of the town of Gloucester and details of what to do/see in the town would have been a help, although there were tourist leaflets of the surrounding area. Also maybe details of places to eat nearby. Would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave177 Holiday Inn - Gloucester
We recently spent a weekend break at the Holiday Inn in Gloucester and must say that we both found it a very enjoyable experience. The room was clean and well presented whilst the staff were both friendly and courteous. Arriving quite late we decided to eat in the restaurant and found the food both enjoyable and reasonably priced. All in all we are quite happy to recommend the establishment as a well run hotel offering good value for money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Anniechristina20 No free WiFi is a problem
My husband and I stayed here for one night and were quite happy with the room, comfortable bed, choice of pillows, good standard of cleanliness all round and quiet (which we had requested).
The only criticism we had was that WiFi was not free in the rooms. I think it was for Reward Club members but this is such a basic requirement these days and something which is readily available in even the smallest coffee shop. We can only assume that Holiday Inn are making a mint - especially from business travellers but maybe they are all Reward Club members so get it free anyway in which case individual, occasional guests are losing out This would most certainly put us off staying again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by evansrs A reasonable good value "base"
Check in was efficient, friendly and helpful. Hotel communal areas really clean, tidy and spacious.
We were on room only board so didn't eat in the hotel at all although breakfast sounded very expensive at around £15pp per day if it wasn't included in your room rate.
Room was clean and tidy although I must say I was both surprised and disappointed with the size of the room. It was very small with very little room either side of a double bed. Air conditioning in the room worked wonders (probably because of the size of the room) and kept us very cool and comfortable.
Overall, for the price we paid it was a reasonable, clean and comfortable 3 night stay.
Hotel is out on a commercial site but only about a ten minute drive from Gloucester City Centre and the docks.

We had planned a weekend meet up with friends, some live nearby, and others stayed in the hotel with us. From the moment we walked in, we were made welcome by very friendly staff. Our room was spotless, spacious and the bed very comfortable. A bonus was that it was well ventilated, excellent air conditioning. Breakfast was very good, a wide choice of freshly cooked food served in a bright clean dining room. We had a minor issue with the door lock on our room just as we were going out one evening, and a member of staff came up within minutes to offer solutions to resolve the problem. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jpetal Another brill night at holiday inn
When we booked rooms we were assured we could have adjoining or at least next to each other rooms as I was in with toddler and my husband was with our other child. We have to book two rooms or no way we would get any sleep. When we checked in rooms were a distance apart which was disappointing but staff quickly amended our rooms to be next to each other even making up sofa beds straight away. Dinner was lovely and kids eat free. Peaceful night sleep, kids slept well. The facilities are great at this hotel for families although it was midweek when we stayed and full of suits. Definately would stay again. Only negative pool changing room very small no separate changing rooms and air con was freezing so had to go back to room and change
