Has to be the worst hotel food I have ever had. Surrounding were pleasant the staff were attentive, however the food was very poor quality and the drinks were overpriced. Prawn cocktail was poor, teriyaki chicken was like sloppy noodles with over sizes pieces of tough chicken, tasteless and the cheesecake was like it had been sat in a fridge... More

Stayed for a short break with my daughter. Excellent sporting facilities & activities. Staff were attentive, helpful and pleasant. Rooms very clean. Restaurant excellent value. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends. Well done to the Thistle Cheltenham staff. Really enjoyed exploring Cheltenham Town too.

Initially, the 'Express Check-in' was exactly that, Express!! The receptionist handed over our key and told us our room number/name but that was it! No information on what floor we were on, no info about breakfast times or location or any details on the Leisure Club. We found our room which was very, very nice. There was no bed made... More

Functional appearance, but the friendly staff and access to the leisure club (indoor pool, sauna, gym and tennis courts) are plus points. Location-wise, OK if passing through, but a very long way out from the historic town centre.

A lovely place to stay with first class attentive staff. The Bar Manager Dharma is probably the friendliest and knowledgeable bar host I've ever met. The wifi is superfast and they gave skysports in the bar. The fact that there is a gym and pool is an added bonus.

Checked in by a trainee who clearly had no clue and was very untidy. Made to wait 20minutes. Overall the hotel looks very tired and worn. Restaurant was very overpriced and the quality was poor along with the service. Waited 15 mins for waitress to bring me a glass of water and ended up having to look and get it... More
