Nice spacious room with comfortable beds. Good bathroom. Very clean. Excellent breakfast. Friendly and welcoming staff, even had help up to the room with our luggage (rare these days) Easy to find on edge of town.

Many thanks for your review. Yes we carry guests' luggage around all the time (even though we're both pensioners!) All part of the service, and it keeps us fit. More

We stayed at this hotel Last weekend and it really does do what it says on the tin! It is small yet sophisticated, friendly but professional and very clean and comfortable. It is within an easy distance of Cheltenham and we will definitely stay there again when visiting our family locally. If I did have one adverse comment it would... More

Many thanks for your review - I do absolutely agree with your comments. Would you care to be our (unpaid) PR person? Seriously, we do exactly try to be "what it says on the tin" and to be as straight as possible with no pretensions. As for sausages (no doubles-entendres here) we serve chipolatas for breakfast because they cook more... More

Stop at this family run hotel for coffee and get a warmer welcome, easy parking, better value and free WiFi. Why go to Costa or Starbucks when you can a get a huge jug of high quality decaf coffee, brought to you in the bright lounge/conservatory for £3? I didn't have to fight past baby-buggies or put up with lots... More

A very clean and friendly hotel, peaceful and in a quiet location Very helpful staff and it provided super food it is adjacent to a major road for easy access and departure with ample parking there is a petrol station a few yards down the road but not close enough to be an inconvenience.

You really couldn't want for more from a small hotel. Very clean and tidy. My bedroom overlooked the garden and had tea and coffee maker, desk, ironing board and iron, TV, alarm clock, and the ensuite looked like it had just been fitted it was so clean. Lovely large fluffy towels to boot. Good breakfast and the owner and his... More

This is the second time we (a group of work colleagues taking part in an annual sponsored walk) have stayed at Charlton Kings. Exactly as last year, the rooms were spotless and welcoming, the owners accommodating and the food delicious. We arrived at the hotel after a day's walking, to be met by the welcoming owners, hot water, warm towels... More

We were walking the Cotswold Way, and were very tired when we walked into The Charlton Kings after 5. The owner quickly brought us to our rooms (on the ground floor, thank goodness!) where our luggage was waiting for us, wonderful! After a little while we gathered with our friends in the bar, and then the solarium, which we particularly... More

We stayed at the Charlton Kings Hotel on our way to North Wales, the owners are friendly and very polite. Lovely lawn to sit and have a drink, plenty of parking.

Stayed here one night on the way to the West Country after visiting Leckhampton Hill with its quarries and "Devil's Chimney". The hotel proprietors run a tight ship and cleanliness seems to be a watch word. Our room was pleasant and the en suite facilities very good. The food is unpretentious but tasty, although there seemed some hesitancy to fill... More

Many thanks for your review. Glad you liked it here. We also like to think we run "a tight ship". You mention toast... Guests can always ask for more toast, but if you saw the amount of toasted bread we waste each day you also wouldn't fill toast-racks to capacity. More
