I have stayed here with my wife about once a year for several years, but this was our first visit since change of management. On this occasion we did not avail ourselves of the in-house breakfast but ate further down the town, partly for a change and partly because we had read that you now have to collect your breakfast...

It is a simple motel, so don't expect the usual hotel services (bar, restaurant, etc.), however saying that, the room was large and modern, the bed seemed a bit on the hard side but turned out to be very comfy, it had a nice flat screen TV and a largish bathroom complete with shampoo, etc. It was very clean and...

I stayed here for 2 nights a few weeks ago with a friend in single rooms. It was not made clear there was a shared bathroom and the first night was fine - there was a wedding party. On the second night the other two rooms on our floor were occupied by people who 'live there' and had been moved...

This was a great motel. Didn't realise that I had booked a room with a shared bathroom but was able to upgrade . We had a lovely room with ensuite. Only thing that was missing was a seated area with tables for the evening as it was very hot in the room and would have been great outside.

As someone else has written in the room tips this place should not be trusted with credit card details!! Booked full price for two nights and cancelled 1 month in advance. They took the money for the room even though we had cancelled both verbally and through email. Upon confronting the manager in a lengthy visit to the hotel he...

We attended a wedding at Clearwell Castle on Saturday and booked the Deansgate Motel as it was reasonably priced and near to the Castle. We were really pleased with our stay. Extremely clean, comfortable and contemporary room. Best pillows ever, so soft. Chap at reception really helpful and even lent me a charger for my mobile. If we are ever...

It wasn't just that the shared bathroom was grotty and smelt of mould but the bed, dear God!, It was unbearably lumpy and felt like the springs were almost coming through and the pillows were as thin as after dinner mints! Come on guys you could do better. However, the harbour at Lydney is lovely and the cafe in the...

The first thing I noticed about the Deangate Motel was the sign in the photo has lost its 'e' and 'a'. This is never a good sign, as it shows a lack of maintenance and an unwillingness to spend money keeping a place up to standard. That being said, the rooms were fine, and the proprietor was friendly and welcoming....
