“Excellent views, fairly well equipped.”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Decent sized rooms. Very clean. Lack of attention to detail. Mirror propped against the wall is not very professional. Supplied tourist information was very unoriginal. Need more insight into the less obvious places to visit.

Thank you for your review.
The mirror mentioned in the review is a floor mirror and is designed to be free standing. Please see… https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=floor+mirrors&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=ZmcEVLnzB8Lm7Aayq4DQBg&sqi=2&ved=0CE0QsAQ&biw=1304&bih=707
This gives greater flexibility as guests are not all the same height and have appreciated being able to reposition the mirror as required. We have given this much consideration but do not feel it would be appropriate or useful to fix this mirror to the wall.
The following is the tourist information we provide to our guests
• A comprehensive Information Pack, reviewed and updated regularly, which includes
o Details of local places of interest including some quirky items such as the Severn Bore timetable
o Details of the opening times of the nearest Tourist Information Office
o Details of local amenities such as bus times, supermarket opening hours, directions to the cinema, doctors, hospitals, etc
o Details of recommended places to eat, pubs, restaurants, etc
• Current edition of Cotswold Life Magazine which gives details of the month’s events, places to explore and more unusual aspects of the Cotswolds
• Current edition of Stroud Life weekly newspaper which gives details of local events and news and also a property section (useful for guests who are looking for property in the area)
• A drawer full of leaflets of interesting places to visit and maps
• A separate folder containing past Cotswold Life articles which give details of Cotswold events for the current year, places to visit, walks, etc and is a resource that is a work in progress
• Ordnance Survey maps of the area (one of which was appropriated by the reviewer!)
• A WiFi connection is also provided free of charge so that guests can research their own destinations
With regard to the comment “Lack of attention to detail”, we very much regret that the reviewer did not give more details as we are always open to new ideas and improvements. Our independent Feedback Forms and our own Guest Book (which can be viewed by everyone who stays at Bobby’s Nook) have been full of accolades to the contrary, so it is very difficult to know what they had in mind. In the past, we have implemented many ideas from the Feedback Forms, making Bobby’s Nook the well-equipped place it is today.
To put this review into context, the reviewers were on a busman’s holiday and were bursting with ‘professional’ advice. Unfortunately their comment on departure was that it would have been nice to know what time we expected them to leave! We pointed out that this information is near the beginning of the Information Pack. If only they had glanced at the Information Pack they would also have seen the various pieces of information regarding local attractions.

Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Lovely quiet location with delightful views. Very comfortable accommodation, well-equipped. Conveniently situated near some great walks and also near a bus stop - we were without a car, so this was very useful.

“Absolutely adored this apartment”
Reviewed 3 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Me and my fiancé went to this apartment for 3 nights in January. The apartment was lovely and clean, everything we needed. The shower room had a wonderful walk in shower. The apartment was in an ideal location for travelling to different places around the Cotswolds, On a clear day there are lovely views. The little touches made by the owners, such as milk, tea and coffee on arrival made the experience even better. If you are looking for a break in the cotswolds then this is the ideal place to go. We shall be returning as soon as we can!
