Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BetsyBeth Ideal for family get together
Spacious hotel just right for a get together with our 2 daughters and families including 4 young grand-children. Grand-children loved the pool, mums loved the wide choice of breakfast options available. Rooms very comfortable.

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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leeds182 Great service from excellent staff
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is very conveniently situated near the motorway and very easily accessible.
The food in the dining room was excellent as was the service provided by the staff. We would recommend this hotel to anyone planning to holiday in the Coswolds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by robjohnb1947 Good but.......
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cec1964 enjoyable stay with a very good service and facilities.
I came to the Gloucester/Cheltenham Holiday Inn to a Teaching conference, I enjoyed my stay at this venue, the staff in general were very friendly and efficient. I would like to say a big thank you to the Bar staff during my stay, the service was excellent. I enjoyed eating in the lounge bar as I preferred eating there instead of the restaurant while watching Football.on the big screen.
I really enjoyed using the hotel wireless internet for my work, the staff was very kind at that time.
The room was very spacious with good facilities.
I needed to relax, I used the pool and sauna and jaccuzi facilties, very enjoyable.
The overall of the stay was very good.

Could not fault the hotel. Have stayed here before and got a free upgrade to a better room this time.
My only gripe would be that the bar shut at 11pm - at other hotels you would have a residential licence.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CGrey Fine but overpriced
Not really worth the extra money over the HI Express up the road, if the breakfast was like other Holiday Inns I would say it was, but the breakfast was lame. Chloe on reception was tremendous.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pauline2014 A wonderful escape
I had a wonderful stay at the holiday inn in Gloucester with my husband.
First thing to say is that the location is perfect, situated on the edge of Gloucester, most of the Cotswold picturesque villages are within half hour drive. Driving being essential, one positive is that this hotel has plenty of parking.
Easily the best thing about our stay was the staff, upon arrival, reception were friendly and very helpful. The staff in the restaurant were also just as great.
Our stay included breakfast and dinner for the duration of our stay, which was great value for money. Their was plenty of choice, and the food was delicious. We send our complements to the chef, every meal was excellent.
Our room was spotless, very clean, the furnishing was a little on the older side but was of good quality. The only negative would be that the room was bit on the smaller side when compared to other holiday inns we have stayed in.
Overall we had a fantastic stay and we look forward to staying with holiday inn again in the future

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Msboots Unhappy guest
Based on our experience at this Holiday Inn, we will likely not choose this brand again. We had a main floor room and were reluctant to leave our window open overnight, the carpets were dirty and the furniture worn. The hairdryer was in a desk drawer and could not be removed, so one has to dry their hair standing or sitting near the drawer. The breakfast was OK, not great, although the fried eggs were nice. Terrible coffee. But the biggest complaint is the exorbitant rate charged for WiFi, both in the guest rooms and in the lobby. The staff were not terribly helpful; for example, although we stayed 2 nights, it wasn't until the morning of our departure that we learned it was possible to obtain a code for free WiFi on ONE of the computers in the lobby. This would have been useful earlier in our stay when we were searching for information about the area.

We stayed 2 nights to attend a family wedding in the hotel.
The wedding and accommodation were faultless.
Excellent staff helped with all enquiries.
Good food at breakfast and at the wedding. How do they do so much for the price?
Our only criticism- wifi should be free at least in public areas.
