Nicki is a darling, and so are his staff and the 'regulars' who drop in because they love the place. Nicki says "You can have anything at Nicki's" and he means it. But the place is very tatty and run-down, so don't expect anything else. Mention Nicki anywhere in Gloucester and people smile and say what a fantastic person he...

I'll start with the positives: the shower was excellent and the shower room seemed quite new and in good condition. The host, Nicki is a delight and nothing is too much trouble. We had dinner one night and it was very good. Wifi worked well all the time. Now the negatives: in our room, the wallpaper was damaged and water...

Just returned from our trip to Nicki's and had to write an updated review to emphasise the things that makes this place great. At Nicki's you feel like you are part of the family, nothing is too much trouble, the sort of caring service that is so rare nowadays. Unfortunately we weren't able to visit last year and Nicki noticed...

Whilst it may be situated ideally for the centre of Gloucester, this is a basic place to stay. The room and hotel itself smelled slightly, the toilet also smelled and the room was not that clean (other peoples hair still on sheets..). Very noisy during the night from seagulls outside, and someone was listening to the radio at 4am (I...

Nicki's may suffer in hotel reviews because it isn't a big-chain, well-funded establsihment, but then it doesn't cost as much either. My friends and I are regular users of Nicki's every time there is an event we wish to attend in Gloucester. Nicki is wonderfully welcoming chap who can't do enough for his guests and is always willing to be...

Room was small. Ensuite had a pulveriser toilet which made a lot of noise and smelled. Shower was on a high plinth and would be very difficult for a person with impaired movement to use. Public areas and stairs were basic. New wallpaper in places and lino on the floor. Breakfast was inedible. Scrambled egg was burnt and I could...

Well, i stayed here because of work and could not have got out of there fast enough. I have read the previous reviews and I must say i am very surprised. Unless i just had a bad room i don't understand all the positive reviews. Where to start?? The place needs a face-lift. The hall was tidy and up kept...

My husband and i have just returned from a weekend break, in Gloucester. We stayed at Nickis' Hotel, and loved it there. Nicki himself, goes overboard to make you feel welcome, food is great, good value for money, clean comfortable rooms, beds clean and comfortable, plus en suite shower, etc. Plenty of hot water. We were given keys to come...

The best reason to stay at Nicki's is Nick himself: a charming gentleman who does everything possible to make his guests feel welcome. Our room was clean and quiet, our breakfast hearty. The hotel is ideally situated in the heart of Gloucester (very close to the Cathedral) and very reasonably priced: my son and I paid £55.00 for a room...

The stairs are linoleum, the finishes haphazard, there was no hot water in our ensuite shower (though fortunately there was in the shared bathroom), and the food, though Greek, won't win any culinary prizes nor is very cheap—but Nicki's very Mediterranean hospitality, typical of his native Cyprus, makes you willing to forgive all that. The place is handy for the...

“They are all smallish but Room 1 is a large three-bed, family that Nicki will do as a twin. No view though.”

“We were on 1st floor, overlooking the main street, which was fairly quiet. Bit of noise in the pipes, when hot water was running, but nothing to fret about, it only happens now and again.”
