Holiday Inn Gloucester Reviews
good hotel on the outskirts of city Jan 31, 2012
Check-in was very fast. I had pre-paid so that speeded things up. Staff were friendly and very efficient. The room I booked was an executive room with a sofa. The room had a 40inch television with freeview channels. The bed was ok and had a choice of soft or hard pillows. The room also had a mini-bar and tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom was a good size but I was disappointed with the water pressure from the shower. For this reason I only would give the hotel 3stars, otherwise it would of scored a 4. I think the hotel is most suited to business travellers and out of towners on weekend breaks (like myself). A car would be useful for most people that stay here because it is a 40 minute walk into town. I don't mind walking so that wasn't a problem for me, but other people may want to consider that when making a booking at this hotel. There is a sainsburys supermarket just a stones throw away if you need anything urgently. Overall I think this hotel is a safe bet for this area.
