Selection of reviews posted on the AirBnB website from my guests:

>  Literally the best BnB we have ever experienced. Tony is a super warm and welcoming gentleman. His beautiful home is offered to guests with love and generosity. You can see how much effort, time and energy has gone into his house and garden. Tony is delightful company and most interesting. His home is blooming with flowers, fruit and veg in the garden. The bedrooms are lovely: so well equipped, clean and each bedroom has a great en suite bathroom. The view over the canal is the 'cherry on top'. Breakfast is wonderfully healthy, fresh, delicious and sustaining - home made by Tony. Every detail, even down to the type of tea pots and crockery are clear signs of a man who knows his stuff and knows what good quality looks, feels and tastes like. Even if you don't want or need to go to Gloucester, I suggest going to stay with Tony for the fun of it! Excellent value for money. Way more bang for your buck than any other place you could stay. We will be going back to stay with him. Thanks Tony - you're a legend. Rach and Claire (sisters)

>  Tony is the marvellous host. He is welcoming, warm, generous, charming, and very well travelled. His place has the most magical frontage on the canal where you can sit in peace and watch the beautiful sunset. The room was very comfortable and convenient. I highly recomment his place - a good blend of hospitality and comfort. Noha Nasser

> Our stay with Tony was everything we'd hoped for. He thoroughly deserves his super host status. We were greeted with tea and home-made cake on arrival, chauffeured to the wedding we were attending locally, and served a tasty, wholesome breakfast overlooking the canal the next morning. Tony has taken great care doing up his guest rooms and the rest of the house, so you get all the benefits of a traditional B&B as well as a home from home - Darren and Cat

> A very welcoming host. Tony's place is well equipped and spotlessly clean. Picturesque canal is right on the doorstep. Breakfast included a lovely omelette, and tomato straight off the plant - Nick Northcott

> It was evident that Tony really cared about the quality of the service he provided. We had a delicious cooked breakfast. Tony is a very interesting character. We would definitely go again - Maggie Scott

> We booked last minute for the night of New Year's Eve, and we couldn't have asked for anything better than to begin the New Year in the company of Tony. There should be a queue waiting to book the two rooms he is offering. His house is immaculate. From the moment we walked in and until we left, the experience was a great one. The location is incredible and the view of the canal is beautiful. We highly recommend this home, and of course, the host. Thank you Tony - George and Liz Bryant

> Great en-suite room, great value, excellent breakfast too - highly recommended - Neal Andrews

> Even better than described. Very nice green neighbourhood overlooking a canal. Enjoyed having breakfast every morning, with fresh fruit salad, home-grown tomatoes, omelette and sometimes even fresh baked bread. For anyone planning a trip to Gloucester, you will hardly find better - David Kakabadze

> This was quite simply my most wonderful stay. Tony was so so  helpful and even fetched me from the airport in Bristol. The room has a lively en-suite shower (walk-in style). I didn't want to leave - Amy Light

> Amazing host, very welcoming, extremely kind, friendly and helpful. I had the most amazing breakfast with the best cheese omelete I have had in my life, which Tony made for me. Superb value for money - Mohit Manocha

> I had an awesome four night stay with Tony at his home on the canal. Tony is an absolute gentleman who offered some wonderful life stories about his adventures around the globe. His home on the canal was very clean and he really made me feel comfortable and at home. He was a great help with directions and even walked me to the bus stop. He didn't hesitate to offer assistance and suggestions about restaurants and things to see in the Gloucester area - Clay and Denise Sewell

> Tony is a very generous host, nothing was too much trouble for him. He is a great conversationalist, and has many stories to share - Jilly Alexander

> Tony was energetic and fun, plus he's a great cook. He went  to get menus from nearby restaurants when asked, and in the end invited us to join his homemade dinner using produce from his super productive garden. Was wonderful, wonderful. Love his sharing of his interesting past - Wildwild Gale

> Earlier this month I stayed at Tony's BnB. What a good decision that was. A superbly kept house in a lovely setting. From my bedroom window I had a view of the canal and surrounding countryside, the canal boats and Tony explained some of the history behind the canal and its use. Tony is a fascinating chap to talk with. A professional Film Maker and Author, he has worked in some astonishing locations for some highly influential institutions. He grows all manner of fruit and vegetables and runs an immaculate and well organised house in which I was made to feel very much at home and enjoyed a good variety of offerings for breakfast. Tony is a great conversationalist with wide experience, and a thoughtful outlook on what is happening in our world. I look forward to staying with him once more when in the Gloucestershire area, and recommend his BnB and his company to you - Simon Scott

> House was lovely and clean and Tony was very accommodating. He could not have been a better host. Very interesting to talk to also - Stephanie Cooper

> I had an excellent stay at Tony's house, it was everything I could have hoped for. Very conveniently situated for Elmore Court...Tony couldn't have been more helpful and friendly - Dan Harland

> Tony's been a wonderful host. He was very prompt and helpful with the communication beforehand, even though we'd booked the accommodation at very short notice. He was very welcoming and even offered to lend us some bikes to ride along the canal - Cristina Tarsoaga

>  Tony answered straight away when I rang, as I was having difficulty finding the house, and came to meet me and carry my bag. He welcomed me with a cup of tea. The house was lovely, overlooking the canal. Rooms are very nice with lovely ensuite shower. The breakfast included was great - good coffee, cereals, fresh fruit, toast, plus an omelette. I felt very welcome. Tony is very friendly and I'd love to stay with him again - best Airbnb so far - Liz Simpson

> Staying at Tony's was just as it said 'on the tin'...and more. It was a lovely stopover between two work days way. Peaceful and relaxing, and I was treated so very well. Would be a fab place to stay for a mini break. Thank you Tony, especially for introducing me to chocolate and chickpea cake - yummy - Susan Theobald

> We were in the area for a wedding at Elmore Court which is 5-minutes away by car, so very convenient for this venue. A superb option which I can highly recommend - Tim Wilkinson

> Tony is the perfect host and very accommodating. He provided us with bicycles during out stay and gave us directions on how to ride to Gloucester along the canal. Tony even walked us to the bus stop when we were leaving to make sure we didn't get lost. Thank you for making our time so easy and enjoyable - Miles Ingle

> Tony is a great host: From the moment you arrive, he makes you feel very welcome; assisting with bags and even making a hot beverage of your choice.
