Free parking across road as covid had taken up pub's outside space. Pub staff friendly for check in. Room 1 was good space, newly fitted out (mainly IKEA), was very clean and smelt fresh. We were the only guests so had shared bathroom to ourselves, and it was very clean and well stocked; similarly the staff kitchen, which we were given access to. Lots of covid sanitisers available. Locals in pub friendly, and if wanted to join Sunday night's karaoke, this would have been welcomed. A variety of ethnic eateries in the nearby locale. Pub only a short walk into centre of Gloucester, so handy for Cathedral, Rugby ground and shops, as well as large supermarket with petrol station.
