I found this hotel by using the Best Western Website and entering the location of where I was actually going on business, which was on the edge of Bristol. So that is perhaps the most important thing - as this Hotel is in Gloucestershire, most people wouldn't consider it as an easy hop to Bristol (30 minutes). The hotel is around £80 for B&B, which is a great deal cheaper than a Bristol City Centre equivalent.
The hotel itself is 3 Star, but I stay in Best Westerns alot and this is a really good one. The King Sized room was clean, with good sized TV and spa bath (upgraded room I think as BW member) The Internet is quick and easy to connect to for business users and the staff are excellent - I was checked in very efficiently and my BW status was checked etc. The bar is a reasonale size and staffed by a very helpful team. The restaurant is perhaps a little small - or rather obstructed by pillars etc which makes it feel small, but the wine list is pretty fair and the food range covers everything from Pie to steak with vegetarian options.
Parking is easy and on site. The staff are unfailingly friendly and helpful. There is an overall air of attention to detail and care.... what's not to like?
This is a very good jump off point for the west country and suffers because few people have heard of it or know where Falfield is.... I would urge you to check it out less
