Stayed at this hotel, booked with GB Tours, overnight which included evening meal and breakfast. Everything about the hotel was really nice. Evening meal was a choice of 3 starters, mains and sweet followed by tea or coffee, all of which was excellent. Breakfast next morning was buffet, not as hot as I like it but a wide variety of...

We were very apprehensive going to this hotel after having a dreadful experience at the last Thistle we stayed in. However we couldn`t have been more pleased. Firstly the staff were welcoming and friendly, our room was spotlessly clean as was the whole of the hotel. Comfy beds, good hospitality tray and as for the dining room we couldn`t have... More

I stayed at the Thistle, Cheltenham on a Saturday evening in January 2014. Having booked a Winter deal at around £65 bed & breakfast, my expectations weren't that high, but I was nicely surprised. Check in was pleasant and the man was very friendly & helpful, even assisting with a card for a taxi firm. The public areas looked comfortable,... More

We stayed here 22 March for 2 nights on a package of two nights which included breakfast on boith days and one dinner. The hotel is just off the M5 and easy to access from the A40. It is not a pretty hotel but inside the rooms are comfortable and the staff are extremely friendly and eager to please. The... More

We had an overnight stay here and were welcomed warmly, our cases being transferred to our room without our asking for assistance. The meal, an Italian theme on the night we were there, was delicious and piping hot. Waiting staff were friendly and willing to answer questions. Our room was comfortable with all the usual facilities you would expect from... More

Just what you need before a big day of competing! The bar area was always clean with very good value for money. Had a lovely meal in the... More
