This is a relatively new hotel on a business park, a few miles from Gloucester city centre. The hotel is fine, bedrooms clean and functional. Breakfast is mediocre, compared with Premier Inn. Hot items: only sausages, baked beans and what can only be described as a green/grey scrambled egg. The croissants, however, were very nice! There's a pub next door...

As a half way overnight stop between Shropshire and Somerset, this budget price hotel ticked all the boxes. Polite staff, cleanliness and everything you need was the order of the day. Good value including a decent breakfast. Would recommend for what they are 'Express', exceed others in this range.

We stayed four nights and were really happy with all aspects. Middle range cost,good breakfast but not wholly out of the ordinary,cleanliness excellent and staff likewise.Although out of town,the park and ride is literally 200yds away and provides a very useful alternative to parking in Gloucester. Definitely worth another visit if we,re in the area.

Having to attend a wedding locally brought us to here as there was limited rooms at the venue where the wedding was and we were made up with our choice. It was reasonably easy on the pocket for what is on the whole a budget hotel with no frills or surprises either which is reflected in the price. The room...

As a regular user of hotels, I base reviews on my personal favourite, Marriott. Having said that, as my number of nights in hotels has increased, cost and location means that I sometimes use less expensive options, usually Premier Inn or occasionally Ibis. I tag these as 'cheap and cheerful' doing the job but without the frills. Holiday Inn is...

We booked this hotel as a stop over and was really shocked when we checked in. We were expecting the usual basic Holiday Inn Express but was really surprised. The hotel has had a major refurb and is a great stopover. The breakfast was also surprisingly good, not the usual basic Express breakfast.
