Having often visited WWT Slimbridge on day trips, we decided to stay somewhere nearby overnight so we could stay later at WWT and return the following morning, and to avoid the drive home in the dark. Best Western hotels have not disappointed in the past and The Gables was the obvious choice.
There were plenty of parking spaces at the side and at the back of the hotel.
We were greeted on arrival by a friendly and efficient receptionist.
We were allocated a four-poster room, which was huge, had plenty of storage space and all the amenities that one would expect. Being able to make a hot cup of tea was very welcome on a cold evening.
Our room at the back of the hotel was quiet, very clean and nice and warm.
WiFi was quick to connect.
The bed was comfortable and we slept very well.
The bathroom included a jacuzzi bath with an overbath shower. There was a non-slip bath mat provided.
We had already eaten, so couldn't manage a full meal, however we went to the bar for a drink and had a dessert which was delicious. We studied the menu and have decided next time we will have a meal there - there were a number of vegetarian options and there was also a pizza menu at the bar.
The breakfast was self-service and there was a good choice of cold and cooked food, cereals, toast, fruit and yoghurts. The staff were very attentive in showing us to our table and quick to clear away used crockery etc.
All in all, this was a great place to stay and we definitely intend to return! less
