Good Hotel Guide Review
Charles II is said to have slept here, and medieval beams and Georgian panelling attest to a long history, but this former coaching inn couldn’t be more ready for the 21st century. Owners Mark and Alison Booth spent millions on the transformation, which turned up the Roman mosaic displayed in reception. Beyond, modish bedrooms varying in size and style are handsomely appointed, and supplied with dressing gowns, an espresso machine, fresh milk, and a Mac Mini computer. Larger rooms can accommodate an extra bed for a child. An inner courtyard houses the ‘informal, friendly’ restaurant (leather banquettes, a large wood-burning stove, a ‘serendipitous collection’ of prints, photos and artwork). Sit here for ‘enjoyable’ modern meals – perhaps market fish stew, saffron potatoes, rouïlle; flame-cooked meat from the Robata grill – accompanied by a glass from the ‘comprehensive wine list’. Salads, sandwiches, small plates and large dishes are served in the lounge all day. There’s freshly squeezed orange juice at breakfast, plus ‘succulent bacon and tasty Gloucester Old Spot sausages’. The city bustles; take refuge in the vaulted spa.
