The Old Lodge is located a couple of miles south of Stroud and overlooking Nailsworth Valley. It is exactly what it says on the tin – an old lodge. The layout is quirky, with a jumble of interconnecting rooms on the ground floor, narrow staircases and corridors with random steps. Guest rooms are on the first floor. The location is glorious, high up on Minchinhampton Common with splendid views. The common is popular with golfers, kite flyers and, err, cows, so it can get very busy during the day, which may account for the popularity of The Old Lodge's very pleasant beer garden. There is no car park as such, but there are plentiful parking places on the road and verges immediately outside the lodge.

My room could best be described as 'snug'; it came with double bed, wardrobe, desk, television and generous hospitality tray / kettle squeezed in, but little room for much else. It was, though, comfortable and tastefully decorated (although the floor had a very obvious slope down to one corner). I understand larger rooms are available at a cost. Wi-Fi, as you would expect, was available in-room free of charge (although when I connected, my laptop flagged up a warning that the wi-fi protocol was outdated). The en-suite was tiny, containing a toilet, sink and small shower cubicle. Top marks, though, for supplying generously sized 'bath sheets'. There is no air conditioning; it is possible to open the windows, but since most of the rooms overlook the gardens they will be susceptible to chatter from drinkers outside. It wasn't really a big deal since the weather was cool and breezy during my stay, but I could see this being a problem during long, warm summer evenings.

There is no reception as such. Guests are given an entry code which will allow them to let themselves in after the bar / restaurant has closed.

Obviously the big deal at the moment is Covid. I asked about mask etiquette when I checked in, and was told that it was entirely up to me, it wasn't enforced. Generally the staff seemed relaxed about it. There is a one way system in place, so there are separate entrance and exit points and a specific route to follow to get to the guest rooms. Despite the pandemic, rooms are still being cleaned and made up every day.

Breakfast is table service, with a choice of different breakfasts. I chose the Old Lodge Full English, which was delicious, and was made with good quality ingredients. Toast, juice and coffee / tea also included.

Obviously The Old Lodge is a very different proposition to a chain hotel, but notwithstanding the modest size of my room I was left with the impression that the management had set out to offer a high standard of service and accomodation.

Had a 1 night wonderful last minute stay in the superior room. Lovely comfortable and spacious room with great views. We also had a fantastic meal in the pub below in the evening and a super breakfast in the morning. I would like to point out that we had Emanuel serve us both times and checked us in and out of our rooms and really looked after us and made us feel very welcome. Things like this make a difference and me and my partner were very impressed with him.

Very good food. Didn't want to risk eating anywhere else and the service was also excellent. Excellent cooked breakfast and evening meals had a great choice of fish, meat and vegetarian options cooked to perfection. Always hot plates, nice wine choice but only Guinness as a stout, no dark beers.
Nice room too.

Had a bad nights sleep due to the poor bed and mattress. However, we found the Inn to be very relaxing, with a a lovely mix of different kinds of seating, a good range of drinks and really friendly, attentive staff. This place is very dog friendly, with dogs allowed in most of the areas of the Inn and one of the few places that don't charge a fee for the dog. The food was excellent. We had a garlic bread with cheese and tomato starter to share - delicious. Then I ordered the fish sharing platter which was fish heaven , quality and quanity ( I did have a bit of help,) and my husabnd had fish and chips which he also enjoyed. The room we had (Room 6) was quirky and dog friendly.
The cooked breakfast was really good and like the evening meals, obviously quality ingredients were used. We couldn't fault this Inn until we went to sleep but we still want to give five stars due to the way that they dealt very fairly with the problem. We will definitely be back when we are in the area .
