Hilton Puckrup Hall, Tewkesbury
Travel Blogs from Tewkesbury
Yes I have two days off, then am moving flats, and then another day off so when I should be thinking about packing and cleaning, I'm thinking of trying to fit in one more quick trip before it all. I've been itchy sitting around in cafes for the past three/ four days struggling to sort out my life by searching accommodations, flights, and everything else for my upcoming few months. Today around midday after checking what I'd be to catch a train to Swansea in ...

I reinstated his position as we found ourselves overlooking spectacular countryside with the river Wye in the foreground, and in any case he was the only one who knew the way to the hotel although James and Steve's navigation skills interpreting their Garmin route is improving.

Leaving this huge Anglican Church we sought out the Methodist one which George probably attended - much smaller & more austere, then went to the museum on Barton St (where he lived) to look for any mention of him & learn about the famous locals. Had no luck but it was special to be in the place where the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Puckrup Hall, Tewkesbury
Better than everyone says
After booking this hotel I read the reviews on this site so was rather concerned about what we would find. However I have nothing but praise, the bedroom was newly furnished, food excellent though I agree drinks expensive but thats typical of a hotel and the staff were all friendly and every one of them smiled when they saw you. Definately stay again.
After reading all the comments, I wrote to the General Manager about our stay with questions but did not get a response. The lack of communication and our feeling of impending doom did not keep us from going to this hotel for the weekend of the 18th November.
A lovely hotel - but let down by some of the staff / decor.
This hotel is in a beautiful location and is good for a weekend break. The rooms were very nice although a little dated and had fantastic views of the golf course. They were restocked with wine ,water and fruit each day.
The food was at best average for the evening meals and for a 4 star hotel was very poor, although the breakfasts were good they were not up to the standard of other Hiltons I have stayed at.
The staff were all very friendly and willing to help with any problem that you had.
Overall an enjoyable weekend break in a nice location. I would go back but only on B & B.
If the food was better and the rooms were refurbished this would be a great location for short break.
My husband and I like to go away for a few days now and then just to get away from it all and relax. We chose this Hilton because we had had a good experience in a different Hilton and this one looked like it could be very relaxing with its health facilities and location. We booked a Junior suite over the internet for a reasonable price.
I cannot believe this place is a Hilton. The standard was pretty low to be honest.
I have been staying here during the week for 8 months now and on the whole am happy with the Hotel (else I wouldn't keep returning!). There are two parts to the Hotel a modern complex and the old house. I have tried many rooms in the main block of newer rooms and have not yet found a room I am happy with. Most of the rooms are very noisy throughout the night and I am a light sleeper so this is a problem. The rooms in the old house are however much quieter and the upgraded room I am given is excellent. Very spacious and quiet.
My wife and I spent the Easter weekend at Puckrup Hall and had an excellent break. The staff were an absolute pleasure, from Alison at reception to Melissa in the restaurant, they all worked hard to make sure that we enjoyed our stay. Given that the hotel was full, it was very much appreciated.
This is a Hilton?
Rate typically includes breakfast which is a real pleasure. This hotel has character, surrounded by a golf course.
But the rooms are just not that comfortable. They are spacious but stiff. The bed is thin and the sheets are not that comfy. I've stayed at Hiltons in the UK that do not have this problem so it is a local hotel issue, not my expectations being too high.
I've stayed here more than once because it is not bad and the area has limited options. But I have stayed in more comfortable rooms.
Unusually characterful for a Hilton
The website shows the original, Georgian building. The major part of the hotel is modern, but low build, and doesn't detract from the old house and it has nicely reflected the style without being a horrible pastiche.
My room was in the new building, and perfectly pleasant if functional. The buffet breakfast options were wide, and staff pleasant & attentive. Very nice public rooms, especially of course in the old house.
I was there on business: I like a bit more real character for a holiday, but it is in a good location, and fine for people who like to know what to expect from the Hilton chain.
