... every 10 minutes or less. We have learned not to take the main motorways as they are fast and straight and you miss such a lot. We passed thru' small towns like Blagdon, Compton Martin, Churchill, Bishop Sutton and Banwell to name but a few. Bit more variety of house types than the Cotswolds but still mostly two storey and made of brick or stone. As we drove down the hill in to Weston Super mare we realized it was no ...
And on to Gloucester with a few deviations on the way, the first stop being Burton on the water which was a scenic little village. We didn't stop as once again you had to take the park and ride which would have taken up too much of our time. Thanks to Mike and Deb we found Stow on the Wold, and Chipping Camden, the latter being our favourite. It's a very picturesque little ...

Then we walked one street south to visit the famous Sally Lunn shop, maker of the round bun.
They had an early bird dinner special. So always keen for a bargain we can now say we have eaten at the original Sally Lunn kitchen.
... beautiful city, and in fact, the entire city has been chosen as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, because the city is very old and is still well preserved from when the Romans were there and had created the baths all over the city. The river runs over what looks like a huge bath, and the rest of the city is mostly touristy, but it's really not so bad. Me and Jake might try to go back to Bath before the end of our trip once we get back to London.
... length, if that) it would take for me to have an easy exit from my parking space.
From Bath we navigate to South Wales. Tintern is just over the border from England, and is home to Tintern Abbey. It is a typical Wales valley, lush green hillsides that are rugged and remind me of home. It is sparsely populated. Traffic is light. The sky is partly cloudy and it grows colder the closer we get to rural Wales, though there is no wind to speak of. Our path goes across the large ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott St. Pierre Hotel & Country Club Chepstow
We have just got back after a well earned rest and I have to say that apart from not being informed at the time of booking that there was a dress code to dine in the orangery restaurant which was soon sorted out, we have had a lovely time. I think it is quite hard to get a balance between eficiency and comfort but they seem to have managed that very well. Facilities are above average for the money from my experience and staff were helpful and friendly. Our room was on the lake and was really peaceful. We found it spacious and comfortable apart from the overpowering heat from the radiators. Not sure I'd want to be there in the middle of summer with no aircon and needing the windows open? I'm pretty sure the mosquitos would have a field day! But all in all I'd recomend a stay here and would certainly return for an out of season short break without hesitation. Well done Marriott!
Superb hotel, very scenic grounds, room was bright, airy, large - if a little warm, with a great view out over the golf course. The check in staff were some of the most friendly I've ever come across, and the old part of the building is very grand. We ate in the Zest bar, which was relly busy, but we had a delicious meal without waiting an unreasonable amount of time. It's also a nice, modern setting. The gym was great, airy and cool, modern equipment, and the pool was fantastic - sure it would have been even nicer in the summer with the sun shining! Breakfast was good, wide choice on the buffet, all tasty, but slightly marred by filthy tablecloths. All in all, a brilliant hotel!
My wife and I stayed at this hotel over the weekend of the 27-29 January 2006. I found all the staff to be friendly, courteous and efficient.
Lovely setting with open countryside and golf courses around the hotel. Old part of hotel is full of character with good facilities. Visit spoilt by incompetant staff who had ignored pre arranged requests regarding accomodation and arrangements needed for my son who is disabled. A working fridge was needed to store vital medication and this was not provided. Instead we were offered ice packs from the hotel kitchen which had to suffice. After checking in we queried the lack of a working fridge with reception staff who initially agreed to move us to a different room and then withdrew the offer as we had the last 'non suite' room large enough to accomodate a 3rd bed. In the meantime they re allocated our room (with all our possessions in it) to someone else who we met as they were coming out of our room.
Best View of the Lake
I just wish i get to stay there more often as they get book up very very quick. So my advice is to book early and fast. A lovely golf course and Plenty to do and you will never get fed up with the Hotel.
From the moment you turn into the drive flanked by mature trees and 2 magnificent golf courses you know you in for a treat here. The hotel is class, but this is made all the more magnificent by the friendly smiling staff that serve you with all your wants and needs.
We have visited the hotel on numerous occasions to use the gym and spar facilities. We liked it so much that we held our Wedding reception there last year. It was a marvellous day greatly assisted by the fact that the staff were so eager to help make it a really special experience. The grounds of the hotel consist of two golf courses which make it quite an idyllic setting. We stayed in the honeymoon suite (The Worsley Suite) which is split level with a double king sized bed up a spiral staircase. The morning after our reception we had breakfast on the patio area in front of the lake. All our friends and family say they thought it was lovely as well. The courtyard rooms at the front of the hotel are good for less mobile guests, as they are in a nice setting and close to the main hotel. Overall a lovely experience, just on an occasion when you want everything to go according to plan.
Excellent weekend break
I've been there a couple of times for weekend breaks and have really enjoyed it both times. The food is excellent, and the rooms (we've had suites and standard rooms) have always been of a very high standard. There are two things that really make St Pierre for me - the building and the service - both are wonderful. Excellent place to go, love it.
Stayed at the Marriott St. Pierre in early April 2005 for a 3 night break. The overall experience was good without being outstanding.
A beautiful old mannor house converted to a luxury resort hotel. Be sure to ask to stay in one of the "cottages" which were originally the stables and carriage house.One "cottage" has been minimally adapted for wheelchair access. That room is very large, and can be made up either a double or a twin. The bathroom is accessible through a large door, but the toilet does not have assist rails. The tub side is high, and there is no bath seat, so it is pretty much inaccessible. It does have a hand held shower so you can at least rinse off a bit. The outside room door does not have a flat door threshold (it has about a 2 inch lip,) but our power wheelchair climbed over it. The room is not appropriate for a disabled person traveling alone, but it is fine for someone traveling with an able bodied companion. The main building is fully accessible through the use of portable ramps. They have an unfortunate habit of parking their electric cart over the only accessible section of the cobblestoned walk outside the front door of the main building, but they'll move it promptly if you ask them.On the whole, the beautiful setting and other amenities compensate for the inconveniences. I give it an overall rating of 3 Wheelchairs (out of a possible 5.)One other note... We happened to stay here during the hottest summer in living memory, and the rooms are NOT air conditioned. But open windows gave us good cross ventilation, and it was tolerable.
