"Perfect Location, Lovely Flat & Owner"

I stayed here with 3 of my old uni friends on a girly catch up weekend. The flat is in the perfect location. We parked up on Friday and didn't need to use the car again until we left on Monday. You can walk a few minutes to the main shops in one direction, and the Quays outlet in the other. There are loads of great restaurants a stones throw away. We even went for a nice run one day along the canal and passed by some bulls! The flat itself is about 10 minutes by car from the station. There are two good size double rooms, with very comfy beds with lots of cushions! The flat is on 2 floors at the top of the block and has a cool spiral staircase. The main bathroom is on the top floor with the bigger bedroom, and there is a toilet downstairs. The kitchen has all the utensils & crockery you could need. Just a note that if you are going in from the car park entrance you have to walk up one flight of stairs to the lift, but if you come in from the other side you're straight there. There is space for one car in a secure gated car park. The view across all the old warehouses & the water & boats, which lights up at night was delightful. Michael met us with the keys and gave us a tour around the flat - what a lovely guy! There was tea, coffee, sugar, chocolate and biscuits in the flat for us which was a lovely touch. I highly recommend staying here, if was a great find. I'm not sure what else you could want, we had a great weekend!

We are so glad to hear that you all had such a great time visiting The Penthouse in Gloucester Docks and we would like to give you all a BIG THANKS for leaving it so clean and tidy,we would love to welcome you back again in the future.we would also like to thank you for taking the time to send a review. Regards Michael & Sharon

"Great Location"

We enjoyed staying at this property for a week. It is located at the Gloucester Quays which is a great location for shopping, and restaurants. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. The hosts were more than helpful with all our needs. We would certainly stay again if we return to Gloucester.

Thanks for sending a review on your stay at The Docks Penthouse Apartment,we are glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you felt that the Apartment was to the level of your expectation,we would love to welcome you back again in the future.

"A very relaxing stay"

What a great place! The apartment had everything we required. We wanted a quiet weekend where we could come and go as we wanted without having times set for meals etc. We parked the car on our arrival and did not use it again until we left. We walked or used public transport. We ate out everyday Friday night at Dinos a good Greek restaurant. On other days at places within the docks area. There is a big Sainsburys within walking distance. Micheal and Sharon even arranged a bouquet of flowers for me to give to my wife. we would love to stay again.

We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Gloucester Docks,it was a pleasure to meet you both and to know that the Apartment met your expectations we do hope to see you both again in the summer to fully appreciate the changes which the Docks is now going though,we would like to give a big THANKS for the clean condition which you left the Apartment in.

"100% would recommend this apartment to anyone"

This apartment is based in a lovely area around the docks with anything you could imagine within walking distance shops , bars , restraunts , cafes , train station , bus station etc. the apartment itself is like a home from home with mike and sharon catering to your every need with how the have furnished and decorated. The welcome basket they provide just goes to prove they are a level above in the holiday rental business. thanks again we had an excellent stay and experience.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review,we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope you had a few winners at the Cheltenham Races,we take pride in keeping the Apartment to a high standard and we would like to give you a huge Thanks for leaving the Apartment very tidy,hope to see you next year

"Stop looking elsewhere........"

This is the second time I have stayed at this docks apartment, there is a good reason for that. This is like staying in your own home away from home, and add on spectacular views of Gloucester Docks. The apartment is always spotless and tidy, the owners attentive without being intrusive. I cannot recommend this as a place to stay in Gloucester highly enough. If you are visiting for the rugby, the ground is a 20 minute walk away. There really isnt anything that they could add to make it better, praise indeed, all fully deserved. I will be booking again soon.

Thank you for your review, we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay again. We always try our best to ensure our guests feel at home. Look forward to seeing you again

"The apartment was wonderful with amazing views."

My husband and I had a very restful week, everything was perfect. It was so nice not to need to use a car. Restaurants, shops and historic sights were all within walking distance. Also one of the country's most beautiful cathedrals. We would definitely return.

Thank you for your review we really appreciate you taking the time to complete it. Glad to see that everything was perfect for you and we would be delighted to welcome you again in the future.

"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. Best Wishes, The Rawnsley's

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!
