Palmer's Mill Gloucester Quays

  • 5 of 5

We had never stayed in a city centre apartment before, and we're thrilled by what we found, and by the overall experience of three nights in Gloucester. Beautifully presented, the apartment offers easy accommodation for four people with its two double bedrooms, and living space. The welcome pack was generous - you can't beat a box of Milk Tray! - and it was so clean, light and airy up on the fourth floor. We expected night time noise, but there was none, apart from revellers emerging from the quayside bars and restaurants. Two of our nights were Friday and Saturday, after all.

I would thoroughly recommend the property to anyone wanting access to city centre, to cathedral, to high quality eateries, and to the banks of the River Severn, just a five minute walk away across green fields.

We plan to return in January, for a week, if we can!!

Homely, great location

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were met by Michael, who was both friendly and informative about the apartment and the area. The welcome pack left by Sharon was a lovely gesture as well as the bottle of bubbles for my Fiance's birthday was most appreciated. The apartment was lovely and clean and has everything you could need, with a lovely view across the docks and is located centrally for sightseeing on foot. Recommend a visit to the prison which is just 5 mins walk away. There are some lovely restaurants close by too, we went to Greek on the Docks and the Ship Inn, food and service at both were fantastic. We are planning to come back to Gloucester again for the Christmas markets and will definitely book Docks Penthouse again.
