Don't bring food to heat up

Cons: Some flexibility in dealing with guest requests to heat up pre-manufactured food.
Location: Convenient for Gloucester and Cheltenham but a little remote from the racecourse for those going for horse racing.
As an observant Jew who only eats kosher meals, I brought by pre-manufactured microwave meal to the hotel as I have done for years at other hotels around the World. I was told that because of 'Health & Safety' and the possibility of food cross-contamination, they were unwilling to heat it in their microwave oven. The meal is sealed in a plastic box inside a cardboard box which itself is wrapped in clear plastic. Despite my calm observation that there was no way that cross-contamination could occur and that no hotel in my 20 years of travelling had ever refused before, they stood firm. For this reason, I cannot recommend this hotel to those who adhere to special diets that would require food they take with to be heated up. I was given the page of their manual allegedly dealing with the issue but it doesn't actually state that they are forbidden to do so. It makes reference to use of pre-approved Accor suppliers and says a hotel must ensure any other supplier meets the same quality standards, but this is for food they sell to guests which I understand completely.

Great value for money and the room was very clean. They only provide one pillow per person on a double bed but were happy to provide additional pillows on request. The bathroom is basic but functional and the shower is very powerful. Check in was smooth but don't forget to add your car registration so you don't pay for parking. Very handy for Cheltenham and Gloucester too.

Nice hotel, few room key issues!

Arrived around 5pm and checked in fine. First hurdle, the keys wouldn't work on the lifts or the room door. Several trips up and down the lifts later, a machine was attached to the door and the problem resolved. The room itself was lovely, aside from being very warm. The bathroom 'pod' in the corner was very space efficient and the shower was very powerful. Our room faced onto the main road so there was a little road noise. The window wouldn't shut properly leaving a draught, but this was fixed with a little persuasion. Only 1 pillow per person but we requested more and they were delivered within 5 minutes. We arranged late checkout for the following day for an extra £10, and the problem with the door keys not working reared it's head again. Overall, a great cheap hotel just make sure that you get a room facing away from the road and that your door key works!

Pleasantly suprised

Pros: The rooms were great and the bed comfy
Cons: If I had one complaint I had to ask for another toilet roll as two rolls had been left with very little on them
Location: Not sure
I booked this hotel as it was near a venue that we were attending. The hotel was very reasonably priced so I was pleasantly surprised on arrival how nice the hotel was. The reception staff were efficient and booked us in without any problems. There was a bar and breakfast...we did not try them. Would definitely stay at the Ibis again
