Host was lovely. Met us at the property and gave us plenty of information and recommendations.
Highly recommend the Gloucester prison tour (2 mins walk from apartment)
We also drive to Forest of Dean (30mins) for a beautiful hike on the sculpture trail.
Michael and Sharon have put a lot of love in various ways into this property with all of the home furnishings, books, dvds, games etc The position of this apartment is very good for the Quays, Outlet shops and Gloucester, which were all in walking distance. We travelled to Bourton on the Water, Ross on Wye and Bath from this location easily. The parking inside a gated car park was ok, but then you had to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the lift, which might be an issue for some people. Also the lift stopped working two days before we left so we had to walk up to the apartment, but the fact that we had to bring all our luggage down the stairs when we were leaving wasn’t easy for us.
The two bedroom, one bathroom apartment with a ground floor WC with a sink was adequate. We managed with four adults. It was helped by the fact the main bathroom up the spiral staircase, was not an ensuite. We did find that the seating for four adults wasn’t enough really. A two seater settee, a swivel chair with foot stool. The other person had a dining chair or the chair out of the hall. The apartment, in this unusually hot weather was very hot and although Michael provided a few fans we did it quite uncomfortable at times as the apartment is in sunlight a lot of the time, which I know must be lovely on most occasions.
There is also an issue with very noisy seagulls and bird mess everywhere. I know we were on the Quay and we’ve stayed at other places quayside but there is definitely an issue here with so many noisy screeching seagulls and as I’ve said we couldn’t shut the windows because the apartment was so hot.
We did have a lovely holiday despite the small reservations and issues
The location was a short walk from cafes, bars and town centre. The lounge is small for four adults. Accommodation was clean and tidy.
A most comfortable well appointed apartment located within easy reach of facilities. The welcome pack was well received!
