"An Oasis of Calm."
This was a gem of a find.
The Penthouse exceeded all expectations.
It was beautifully furnished with all modern facilities.
A welcome hamper including a bottle of "bubbles" was provided courtesy of the owners.
All windows provided views of the dock area and we were lucky enough to be there when the tall, sailing ships arrived, which was quite spectacular.
The Penthouse is centrally located in Gloucester and places of interest including museums, Gloucester Quays( new shopping mall ) , eateries and good, Italian coffee shops are all within 5 to 10 walking minutes, so no need to use the car,
There is a secure parking bay for the Penthouse.
We had a lovely welcome from the owners, Sharon and Mike, who met us with the keys.
They were able to provide us with details of places to visit both in Gloucester and further afield and were extremely helpful.
We cannot recommend this little oasis of calm in the centre of a city, highly enough.
Thank you to the owners for their kindness and attention to detail.
We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay and found our city interesting to visit. Hope to welcome you again soon

"Great flat in great location"
We needed to stay somewhere convenient while we were singing at the Cathedral for a week, and this flat fitted the bill. It is very comfortable and extremely well kitted out, and we were made to feel very welcome. It was lovely to be so near to shops and restaurants, and at the same time peaceful. Having an allocated and secure parking space was an extra bonus. We would definitely enjoy staying here again.
Thank you so much for your review, we're pleased the apartment was what you needed and you had a pleasant stay. Hope to see you again soon

"Perfect Holiday Apartment"
I am genuinely not been kind with the scores I have given this property. I can not fault it in any area.
The owners are extremely kind and helpful. We were greeted by a very generous welcome hamper and Mike had kindly turned on the fans and opened the windows in light of the 25c heat.
The accommodation itself is very well presented and the photos online really don't do the place justice. The cleanliness is to the highest standard, my mother in law is a cleaner by trade and was very happy with the standard.
The location is beautiful, we were attending an event in the area so had little time to enjoy the local amenities but I would love to return for an actual holiday.
Sharon very kindly notified me that we had left some items in the apartment and offered to return them free of charge. Again very generous.
I really can not recommend this place enough and would advise anyone looking to book in the area to choose this property over the more pricey ones in the same building.
Look forward to returning in the future.
Thank you for your review of your stay, we are really pleased that you were happy with the standard of the apartment, and hopefully we will be able to accommodate you again in the future. There are many attractions in and around Gloucester for you to enjoy!
