Very good for Kingsholm Stadium.
Posted Oct 16, 2012
Visited Gloucester to watch the rugby. Stayed at the Linden Tree for a night. About a half hour walk from the pub to Kingsholm stadium which takes you through the town centre should you get thirsty en-route!
No complaints about the room itself, clean and functional. Included a TV and tea/coffee facilities. Not five star luxury but you are not paying those sort of prices! Our room (number one) did look out onto the road and front patio area which could be an issue should you want an early night during the summer with the window open. No issues with the window shut although we didn't get to our room much before closing anyway (about 11).
Price includes breakfast which consists of a cereals, selection of juice and a full English should you desire. Had a bit of everything and all was good. I didn't want tomatoes so they replaced with beans without me asking.
The pub itself is traditional style with a few ales available (Wadworth Brewery).Should you feel peckish there are various restaurants close by. If you like ale the Gloucester Brewery situated in the historic dockyard (next to the new shopping centre) is now open Saturday and Sunday should you want to take home some of the local brews. A ten minute walk from the pub.
A good stay, will definitely be back when we next go to the rugby. Same price as the Travelodge up the road with a decent breakfast and personable staff thrown in.
