On the second night it stopped at 12.45am, we could her every song loud and clear from every corner of the room. I purchased ear plugs from Woolies which helped but could still hear...

It was cold, wet and windy. First impressions were not good but that was not true. Room was cosy and warm and quirky. It had all the necessary facilities for a stay. The bedroom on the loft was quaint however, the bathroom was downstairs and at the back of the room. Getting up in middle of nite needed care. Would...

This little place is really cool, although a little bit 80s retro style but very clean, comfortable and spacious. The location is very close to the village shops and restaurants, just a short walk, but far enough away from the pub not to be distributed by the local band pumping out tunes to maybe midnight. Very efficient friendly checkin service,...

My partner Brian and I recently stayed overnight in Gloucester. Brian is always researching the best places to stay and he pretty much gets it right every time. Great Escape Lofts offered everything we could possibly need. It was clean and very well appointed and a very short distance to the main street and eateries. Close to the Barringtons and...

Gloucester is a very small and very charming country town. It is lovely to walk around, ride around, plus of course the magnificent Barrington Tops National Park is close by. Accommodation options are not extensive, and after viewing most - this offers the best comfort and a fabulous swimming pool. Full amenities and a cute loft bedroom.
